Friday Reads – 8/12/22

Happy Friday!

These are the books I am currently reading or plan to read into the next week.

I honestly don’t know how much reading I will get done this weekend, we have an anniversary party on Saturday and plan on visiting my mother-in-law on Sunday to watch a religious convention together.

Babel is such a surprise for me. When I requested it on NetGalley, I thought it was a shot in the dark and that I wouldn’t be able to review it. I was SHOCKED when it came back I could. I am about 10 percent through and I have a LOT to say though I will hold back my thoughts until I am done. From the first page, you see what the hype is about and why you are seeing this book everywhere. I will say that the opening reminds me so much of Dickens and what Dickens does right in a story- let me stop. I said I would save it for the final review.

The other book and play are part of my Short Classics Project. I am not looking forward to Heart of Darkness, I have heard such mixed things about it. But I want to keep an open mind.

Happy reading!

  1. I went into Heart of Darkness expecting to hate the ever living daylights out of it and ended up giving it 4 stars. It’s been 8 years though, so my memories of specifics are pretty iffy 😀

    1. I hope I like it. I opened the book and the font is like a “4” so we got off on the wrong foot. But I will give it a shot.

      1. Yeah, the edition I read was a poorly converted project gutenberg edition. It was pretty bad. Hope yours gets better…
