In My Reading Life
The only book I finished last week is There Once Lived A Girl Who Seduced Her Sister's Husband, and He Hanged Himself: Love Stories by Ludmilla Petrushevskaya. I’m once again experimenting with book polygamy. I usually only read one book at a time, but I thought I’d shake things up. I’m still working my way through Haruki Murakami’s massive novel The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle. Whenever I get tired of that one, I’m reading Children of the New World: Stories by Alexander Weinstein.
#ReadIndie is happening now!
For the next two weeks, I’m only going to be reviewing self-published books on this blog as part of the #ReadIndie challenge.
“Welcome to the first ever #ReadIndie challenge! This event was created to promote indie authors who we think are amazing! What is this challenge, you ask? #ReadIndie is a two week time span in December during which we will only be reviewing and promoting indie titles.
So what is #ReadIndie all about? This isn't necessarily a read-a-thon. Instead, the challenge is simply to post indie reviews for two weeks in place of the reviews you would normally post. However, each review you post and link up will gain you an extra entry into an indie book giveaway! This is ALL about spreading the word about incredible authors who don't necessarily get the hype that they deserve.”

In The Rest Of My Life
Five things that made me happy last week:
- I got so much blogging done. I’m a blogging machine!
- Christmas decorations.
- I still have the bronchitis cough, but the other bronchitis symptoms are going away.
- The Great American Baking Show. It’s not as good as the original British version, but whatever. Pretty food makes me happy.
- Children of the New World by Alexander Weinstein is amazing so far. If you like sci-fi/dystopian short stories, you need to read this thing.
Take care of yourselves and be kind to each other. See you around the blogosphere!
