Reading For Robin Has Returned

I’ve finally returned from Europe and gotten over my jetlag enough to blog once again.

The trip was great. I loved both Paris and London (despite not loving the weather) and it was a whirlwind of sightseeing. I rubbed elbows with the Queen in Buckingham Palace and strolled down the Champs d’Elysees, but since this is a blog about books I’m sure you would much rather hear about that, right? When we weren’t walking around every square foot of Europe, I did manage to squeeze in a little reading.

On my mom’s list, I got to both Schooled by Anisha Lakhani and Happy Birthday or Whatever by Annie Choi. It sounds impressive, but they were both pretty fast reads and I had lots of time in the airport and on the plane… and while my dad napped. Also, while I was gone, Schooled was picked by my book club for this month, so I can check that off the list already.

Beyond my mom’s list, I started Skippy Dies by Paul Murray. It is not a quick read, mostly because it’s 672 pages, but I’ve gotten through a lot of it and if I wasn’t still so tired from the trip I could probably finish it in the next day or so. And if I wasn’t still so tired from the trip, I’d tell you more of my thoughts on these books. As it were, I am still so tired from the trip so you will have to wait for the rest of the week to hear about them.

Au revoir!
