What I’ve Been Reading Lately

With the exception of Artemis (which sort of reads like what if someone wrote a fanfic in the style of Andy Weir), I would recommend all of these books!

What is just truly wonderful is that tomorrow I will take off for four days of girl time which also means a lot more time for reading. Joy.

Circe by Madeline Miller

Artemis by Andy Weir

All the Lives I Want by Alana Massey

The Big Rich by Bryan Burrough

What I’ve Been Reading


In the spirit of learning for learning’s sake, I read East of Eden and when I finished it, I thought Man…That John Steinbeck Can Write. HIGHLY recommend. It was The Longest Book Ever but I would read it again. I also read some other things.

East of Eden by John Steinbeck

Manhattan Beach by Jennifer Egan

Uneasy Street: The Anxieties of Affluence by Rachel Sherman

Dream Hoarders by Richard Reeves

What I’ve Been Reading

So I’m not averaging the book per week that I was during my last maternity leave. That said the Ken Follett book was like a thousand pages so that has to count for something, right?I really liked reading all of these books for very different reasons so perhaps you’ll find one you like too!

Janesville: An American Story by Amy GoldsteinThe Weight of Ink by Rachel KadishA Column of Fire by Ken FollettThe Four Pillars of Investing by William Bernstein
