QUARANTINE READING! It has been a while since a book update… the pre-pandemic days of January! Feels like 10 years ago but it has only been 8 weeks hahaha. I really want to know what everyone is reading during all this time at home 🏡 I’ve burned through a good number of books on my TBR pile, but I know I can do better because I’m still spending a record number of daily hours on my phone. I’d like to set a better example for Mavis so I’m picking up my books more often so she can get interested in reading too.
Demi-Gods – Robertson, Eliza
Stay with Me – Adebayo, Ayobami

That’s a bit of a stack to go through review-wise, but stand outs include New Boy (a retelling of Shakespeare’s Othello set on a playground in the 70’s) and Everything I Never Told You (the story of a Chinese-American family following the death of their daughter Lydia). They were all enjoyable though!
Next up is this collection of short stories. What’s next on your quarantine reading list?
