LIFE LATELY

This post is a day late, but life has been prioritizing my blog as last lately. I 'm not going to do a July TBR/ June Wrap Up this month.I only posted three reviews in the month of June, and am behind on my June TBR. I'm working on figuring out what I want to read this month and have plenty of great books to choose from. There are some great July new releases I'm excited for and have ARC's of. 
Protest, Boston, InToriLex
The recent horrible family separation policy at the border and Justice Kennedy retiring from the Supreme Court has left me burnt out most days. I have been finding solace in Netflix and falling behind on reading and writing. I'm hoping this upcoming week will give me a chance to get my mojo back because I am off from work. I spent this past weekend attending the #familiesbelongtogethermarch in Boston. It really helped to be around people who are also deeply troubled by baby jails.

I'm currently reading Baby Teeth by Zoje Stage ,it's pretty unsettling hearing by a psychotic little girl's POV, but good.  I'm still listening to The Book of M by Peng Shephard and enjoying it.
Pachinko by Min Jin Lee has a slow first 100 pages, but I'm not willing to give up on it even if it means reading it sporadically. 

How did your reading go last week?
