Upcoming reviews & what I’m currently reading

Reviews are coming! I’ve been reading books faster than I can type up my thoughts. I’ve also been crazy busy between work and life, so I’ve been neglecting my blog for a bit trying to get my life back in a balance. I should have some reviews coming in the next couple of weeks. I’ve finished 3 books in the last two weeks, so those will be up first. My new goal is to break 40 books by the end of the year. I know I’ve started more than 40 books since January, but I abandon books fairly easily when I don’t like the writing or the audiobook narrator. So 40 is my goal for the year. Lets see how far I get.

What I Read

Delicious!  Quick review: I loved this book!

Work Simply: Embracing the Power of Your Personal Productivity StyleQuick review: A great resource for work management, not time management. It’s a variant on all those time management/organization books.

Goodnight June Quick review: Wonderful premise, lackluster execution.

What I’m Reading/Listening to

Antidote to Venom Quick summary: Early 20th century British crime novel set in a zoo. It’s so engrossing.

A Taste for Intrigue: The Multiple Lives of François Mitterrand Quick summary: A look inside the life and times of Francois Mitterand, one of France’s most memorable presidents.

The Examined Life: How We Lose and Find Ourselves Quick summary: “Stephen Grosz draws short, vivid stories from his 25-five-year practice in order to track the collaborative journey of therapist and patient as they uncover the hidden feelings behind ordinary behavior.” (goodreads.com)
