But where are the reviews?

So lately I have been in a bit of a review slump of some kind. A couple of weeks ago I picked up two books to review for Newcity, which is an independent newspaper here in Chicago. Last time I picked up a book to review for them, I was able to read several books at the same time and keep up with reading and reviewing for this blog. This time, though, I started reading The Shining Girls by Lauren Beukes which was an intensely visceral read that commanded all of my attention. Currently, I'm reading Antonia Lively Breaks the Silence by David Samuel Levinson, which isn't as riveting, but I'm on a tighter deadline now. As you can see in the photo above, I have a *ton* of notes to keep track of on there.

I'm brainstorming some fun ideas though for posts that can be done in the midst of these weird blog-review slump thingys. I miss posting reviews on this blog all of the time and reading other books. I have a huuuge pile of books taking over my bookshelf that all seem so excited and awesome and I cannot wait to read them. Luckily, I am a little over halfway through with Antonia Lively Breaks the Silence so it is only a matter of time! 

PS: Speaking of getting excited to read, I am about to be MOVING in ten days (ahhh) and my new apartment is only a five minute walk from the library! Books unlimited! I'll keep y'all updated on that, because so far packing books and figuring out how they are going to fit in our much smaller apartment has been a challenge. 

See y'all very soon!
