I received an amazing package in the mail several days ago, but I let things like grading and procrastinating take up my energy. Today, I finally forced myself out of my vortex, and what you have is a selfie with some glorious, glorious books.
The awesome Malin gifted me with John Irving’s A Prayer for Owen Meany, Jenny Lawson’s Let’s Pretend This Never Happened, and Brent Week’s Night Angel Trilogy #1 The Way of Shadows. All three have been on my to-read list for some time, and Malin has read them all with highest of recommendations. I’m very, very excited to read them. And I’d say a nice variety, too–Irving is (obviously) literary fiction, which is my reading go-to. Lawson is memoir, and I’ve found what I’ve read of hers to be *hilarious* and real. My sister recommended the Night Angel trilogy to me, and so I’m excited to give it a try. Lots of winter holiday book time ahead!
Thanks, Malin! You are an awesome gifter!!!
