Readerly Rambles: 8 February 2016

What I read:

On Friday I finally finished Radclyffe Hall’s The Well of Loneliness. I have a fuller review brewing, but for now all I can say is I really enjoyed it except for when I didn’t. I swear there will be a review this week!

What I’m reading:

I’m participating in #comicsfebruary and reading Nimona (it is SO GOOD). I’m also still listening to the audio version of Sarah Waters The Little Stranger. Tiny Beautiful Things by Cheryl Strayed is on my nightstand and I read a couple of pages at night.

What’s up next: I’m thinking of grabbing Life After Life by Kate Atkinson for a more modern read. Also, I’m feeling it is time for a poetry collection or two.

Other Bookish News: I’m struggling with reading right now. I’m so focused on proper sleep and health right now and my lack of reading time is making me grouchy. Why sleep when you can read, amiright?

Happy Reading!

  1. Yup, I understand the struggle between reading and sleeping. For me, it’s making an effort to be in bed an hour early so I can read for half an hour and still get to sleep!

    I’m glad to hear you are loving Nimona. I’m debating between reading it this month or saving it for April’s readathon.

  2. Looking forward to your thoughts on The Well of Loneliness because it’s been bookmarked on Scribd FOREVER. Yayyyy Nimona! Always YAYYYY for The Little Stranger! Tiny Beautiful Things is definitely better taken in small doses. I hated everyone in that book when I tried to marathon it. Also, I NEED you to read Life After Life so we can talk about it. NEED.
