As we edge ever closer to the start of the school year and the return of my full time job, I am feeling increasing pressure to read ALL the things while I still have the opportunity. I'm hoping to read at least enough to get me to 50% of my GR goal before the end of the month, since Goodreads has rudely informed me that I am 5 books behind schedule, but we'll see how it goes.


I devoured My Lady Jane (all 500 pages of it) in one day. It's a fictional version of the life of Jane Grey. If you're into YA, this probably isn't the first time you've heard someone mention MLJ, but I second (and third) whoever told you to read it. I struggled through the first few chapters of Jane Steele, but couldn't get into it. Seriously, what is it with me and Jane Eyre adaptations lately? I might have to give this novel about a murderous Jane Eyre-alike a second shot, but I decided to take a break and pick up The Beautiful Bureaucrat instead. I didn't look back. It's fantastically creepy and weird and somehow also hilarious and relatable? Helen Phillips, teach me your ways.


I'm excited to pick up The Last One, which I've had on hold at the library since Julianne @ Outlandish Lit mentioned she was reading a book about someone on a reality TV show who is unaware the apocalypse is happening. Pretty awesome, right? I've still got How to Set a Fire and Why from a recent library haul, so I'm hoping to have time for that, as well as The Unfinished World, which I almost bought at my bookstore a few months ago because it's just so pretty. I've read a couple of stories from the collection already and they are pretty bizarre. Whether they're weird in a way that works for me, I haven't decided yet.

What about you? What are you reading this week?
