The great thing about working overtime, is more money. The not so great thing? Less time in your week to get stuff done. Shout out to all the women and men who work multiple jobs, have kids, take care of family members, all of that. I realize I have no perspective. My busiest day involved getting my hair dyed after work. But working with the public is taxing in its own way, so I found myself asleep by nine almost every night. I did get some writing done today though, which is good. 5k words of my 20k goal for April. I also have a lengthy reading list that just keeps growing. At the recommendation from a friend I am currently reading/listening to Don Winslow’s The Force. Honestly I would have never picked that kind of book, but I needed a break from my typical sci-fi/fantasy choice. Needless to say, I am pleasantly surprised. It has been a good read so far, and it is looking like I will finish in the allotted two week loan period from my library.
My TBR pile currently includes:
Children of Blood and Bone by Toni Adeyemi
American Panda by Gloria Chao
The Astonishing Color of After by Emily X.R. Pan
The Obelisk Gate by N.K. Jemisin
Iron Gold by Pierce Brown
And many more. I have a nasty habit of starting books, then getting distracted by one totally not even on the list. That is the one thing I love about the library though. It forces me to read books I never would have thought of. Anyway, hopefully this week will be more productive.
