I bought Sheryl Sandberg’s book a month or two ago since I have seen her speak a couple of times and love her message. I kept putting off reading Lean In since I felt I had so much else I should read, but I finally decided to go for it this week and I read it in about two days…. It’s pretty short and has great stories, facts, and advice for women that want to kick butt in any aspect of their lives. Lean In was especially useful for me to read since I’m hoping to go far in academics once I finish my degree and it was good to know what I will face and have strategies to deal with it.
I also read Outcast by Adrienne Kress since I grabbed it on NetGalley last week and it was recently published. I was excited basically because of the cover, but ending up being a bit disappointed. It was much too high school romance/drama for me and not enough hunting angels and solving mysteries. Anyone else had the chance to read it?
I also was lucky enough to get Some Quiet Place from NetGalley and am currently reading it. Apparently it’s being archived today even though it’s not published until July? Can someone explain this to me please?? D: Anyway, I haven’t gotten into it yet since it’s a bit all over the place. The scenes are very short and nothing much has happened yet. I’m assuming I’m still in the setup, since the premise and what has been revealed so far are super interesting.
Finally, I’m currently also absolutely adoring Tuesdays at the Castle. Seriously, there is a sentient castle that finds ways to express it’s opinion by changing around where the rooms are, making new rooms and directing people where it wants by changing the hallways they are in. There is also a spunky young princess who the castle likes very much, a devious plot, and some adventuring to do! I always had this bias against middle grade because I thought it would be too simplistic to entertain me, but I’m heavily entertained so color me silly :D.
