It’s Monday, What Are You Reading? Is hosted by Kathryn at The Book Date, a great place to meet up and share your reading plans for the week. I love finding new blogs and new books – so a link-up that helps me do both? Sign me up!
Happy Monday! Minus the hour lost, we had a pretty great weekend. Despite all the terrible wisdom tooth horror stories I collected over the last couple of weeks, everything went much better than expected! I didn’t have too much pain, and still made it to the Alan Jackson concert on Saturday!
Suffice to say, I didn’t get a whole lot of reading done over the week, but being in the middle of Jeff VanderMeer’s Southern Reach Trilogy, I had no choice but to finish it! An all-consuming story riddled by fear of the unknown and a hunger to learn more, each book was more un-put-downable than the last! I’m still thinking about the overall ending of the series, which is probably the point, but I can’t help but want to listen to the entire thing all over again. Especially since the first book, Annihilation, will be coming to theaters this September starring Natalie Portman! And to top that, Jeff VanderMeer will be in Houston this summer to introduce his new release, Borne!!
This week I’m finishing up Buffering: Unshared Tales of a Life Fully Loaded by Hannah Hart, known best for you YouTube series, My Drunk Kitchen. Her story is one of hardship, but told in an up-beat spirit full of can-do and positivity. I highly recommend the audio version, narrated by the author herself!

I’ve been meaning to read the Southern Reach Trilogy for a while now! I didn’t realize the first book was becoming a movie — I better get a move on and read it soon! I’m also intrigued by VanderMeer’s new book, “Borne.” The cover is stunning!
It’s a gorgeous cover! You just can’t look away! Haha much like his writing – you just can’t stop reading once you start!
