Monday again, and this morning I’m gulping coffee and reading my train book, The Martian by Andy Weir. I heard so much about this last year, but never got to it, partly because I thought it would be too science-y, which isn’t really my thing. But it’s been pleasantly surprising to me how much I’ve enjoyed it so far. Mark Watney is so smart and resourceful, but Andy Weir himself if also genius level smart, so I guess that’s not too surprising.
My Lit Seminar is on its 4th book so far, and it’s Jean Rhys’s Good Morning, Midnight. The theme of the class is “wandering modernism,” but in my opinion it’s just “sad books.” This one is set in Paris, and even though it’s supposed to be sad, I have high hopes just from the setting alone.
I want to read more than I did in February this month, and not just for school. Spring break is in a few weeks so that should give me some more time.
I’m definitely looking forward to reading some Stephen King for the King’s March event hosted by Rory at Fourth Street Review and Wendy at Wensend: I have Pet Sematary out and ready to scare me to death, and I’m debating a Stephen King audiobook too.
It’s Monday, what are you reading?
