This doesn’t exactly feel like a blogger’s slump, but it sure looks like one on paper (or, er, digital paper? What is the internet? Gah.). I’m totally blaming Jane Smiley. I just finished the second in her Last Hundred Years Trilogy, and it took me eight days of pretty aggressive reading to get through it (review forthcoming). All I posted last week was my review of Weightless by Sarah Bannan, so I clearly did not have a very weighty blogging week.
In an effort to regain some momentum, I just picked up Karolina Waclawiak’s The Invaders, which is described as a novel about “the suburban abyss.” In addition to having the potential to scratch my ongoing suburban reading itch, this book has fewer than 250 pages! Compared with the Smiley tome, this is a fun sized candy bar.
In honor of the approach of Valentine’s Day, I’m looking for a good love story. Do you have a favorite?
And speaking of love, here are my favorite bookish Valentines for this year, courtesy of the interwebs:
