Books I Read This Week 2017 – 47

Sometimes I get to a point where I don’t feel like reading anything that’s in my list of books. I have piles and piles from the library and then I start at them and nothing jumps out at me. This is where I was when I finally picked up We Need to Talk: How to Have Conversations That Matter and it was the best transition book. It was interesting, not super long and engaging. I knew nothing about the author and had no preconceived ideas. I enjoyed it.

I then moved on to Lagom: The Swedish Art of Living a Balanced, Happy Life because I knew it would be light and easy and still fun and useful, and it was exactly all that.

I then finally felt like reading more but still not sure so I chose Dear Martin which I thought would be right there. and it was. I liked it a lot. I am glad I read it.

I knew very little about Heather, the Totality except that it was by the person who wrote Mad Men and it was really short. I figured there was no harm in picking it up and giving it a try. Before I knew it, i had already finished it. It wasn’t my favorite. Ended abruptly. Felt like it was a character study but with characters that weren’t worth studying.

I then decided I was ready for The Snow Child even though i knew it would be depressing. It was actually not as depressing as I worried it would be and I ended up really liking it. Sometimes it’s finally the right time and mental state for me to read a book and this was that.

I have a few books that are underway and I am looking forward to Thanksiving downtime and the flight to Sydney to read a bunch more on my list!
