July 2016 24 in 48: Update 2

Hey readers!

I hope everyone’s reading is going well as we enter the evening here in Chicagoland. I’m back for another update on my reading time and progress. I’m up to 8 hours of books, fairly evenly split between print and audiobook. I’m still listening to Troublemaker by Leah Remini and currently reading What is Not Yours is not Yours by Helen Oyeyemi. Oyeyemi’s stories are so strange and delightful and a little bit (sometimes a lot a bit) disturbing. I am halfway through What is Not Yours is Not Yours and though I thought I might switch between stories and novel, I think I’ll just devour the rest of Oyeyemi’s stories. They are too good to stop!

I did finish The Girl With All The Gifts and absolutely loved it. M. R. Carey creates this disturbing, haunting, enchanting world populated with super complicated but fascinating characters. The book is 400 pages and I felt like I sped through it, I was just so sucked in to what was going to happen next. I definitely recommend this book if you haven’t picked it up.

To sum it up, I’m 8 hours in with one book completed and in the midst of two others. I’ll be back after I’ve logged another 4 hours, so hopefully you’ll get update 3 this evening. Until then, happy reading!

–Erin
