It has been a long time since I posted a summer reading update. I’ve been a bit busy, just finished the first two weeks of my summer internship! But let me tell you, the 9 to 5 life is not easy to get used to. I’m having a hard time balancing my internship, summa fun, online classes and the blog. Unfortunately, the blog is the suffering thing in this equation. Never fear, for I will try to remember all I’ve read since we’ve last talked.
Loved it, loved every minute of it. Basically everyone I know hates on Mindy Kaling and you know what? I’m done with that. Mindy is a rockstar and a dynamite role model. This memoir reads sassy fiction and her sometimes cringe-inducing, always funny memories about growing up, high school, college and post grad life are true to the heart. I want to be like her when I grow up, seriously. I kind of think this should be required reading for every human person.
E. Lockhart is a fiction queen. She knows what she’s doing. “The Disreputable History” is a true girl power book, but one that takes place in an unusual setting — that being one of privilege, white people and hella money. It’s like, who knew that the most privileged among us still felt squandered by others (in this case, namely the men in her school, family, friend group)? It is smart and fast-paced and riveting. Read in ~10 hours.
This was an impulse Kindle buy. I’m not sure how much I liked it. I read it in a day, so it is definitely a quick read, if that’s what your looking for. I don’t know, it’s your average star-crossed romance thing that probably won’t make you think deeply about anything, but it will most likely keep you entertained for a bit.
Currently reading “The Goldfinch” by Donna Tartt (like, a real real adult book for grown-ups canyoubelieveit) and “Delirium” by Lauren Oliver because I haven’t read it yet and I run a YA blog and it seems mandatory. I like it so far.
Also, “The Fault in Our Stars” movie. I’m still mildly reeling. Because, come on, that was pretty perfect and beautiful. Very impressed and humbly satisfied. Thoughts?
