I Am Still Here!

Hi EDIWTB readers! I have not dropped off the face of the earth. I am here, and still reading, but have just been swamped with work lately and haven’t gotten through anything. Do you ever go through phases where nothing sticks and you can’t get lost in a book? That’s what happened to me.

I gave up on the most recent Mother-Daughter book club read, which was Where the Mountain Meets the Moon by Grace Lin. Just couldn’t get into it.

I also gave up on Emma Donoghue’s Frog Music, which I had started on audio. Couldn’t get into that one either.

So that set me back a bit. I am now listening to Sarah Pekkanen’s Skipping a Beat on audio, which I’m enjoying (especially the DC setting) and reading Ann Hood’s The Obituary Writer, which I am liking quite a bit.

Next week, I head to Book Mecca in NY, also known as Book Expo America (BEA), where I will convene with my fellow book bloggers and get to see my favorite audiobook narrators and hopefully pick up a bunch of books. I vow that this year I will be ultra picky – I still have stacks of books from last year’s BEA that I haven’t cracked.

So that’s the update from here. I will hopefully have reviews to post soon. I hope you all have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend – what are YOU reading?
