Over a Cup: The Virgin Suicides by Jeffrey Eugenides

Imposture syndrome is a very real thing. I have never felt more like an imposture in the library world than I have when I read Annie Spencer raving about this book in her Dear Fahrenheit 451. When she was shouting her love from the rooftops I recalled a good friend of mine rereads this book every few years and loves it. So – here I go!

Over a Cup: Moxie by Jennifer Mathieu

I’ve been making my way through the list I put up a few days ago. Why it feels like a secret fun homework assignment that I’m absolutely crushing I’m not sure. Can you tell that I’m desperate for some clear tasks and victories in life?

Currently Drinking: Salted Caramel Mocha (Starbucks gift card FTW)

I would really love to commit more time to writing on this blog! I’m determined to do it. Hopefully I can come up with some more ideas of things to post about. And now, a day late, is what I am reading (and finishing) this morning. This actually works out perfectly because I have the Advanced Reader Copy of this book and it is released today!

Over a Cup: An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir

I’ve been so overwhelmed with everything I want to read lately. You know that feeling where you want to internalize as many stories as possible but it feels like you can’t possibly prioritize them all efficiently? That’s what I’m going through right now. I start a book and get serious FOMO from the books sitting next to me on my bedside table.

So this is one of the books I’m juggling at the moment.

Over a Cup: Othello, The Moor of Venice by William Shakespeare

Over a cup (1)

I’ve been getting down on myself for keeping up with popular literature and not going back to some “classics.” Last night I had the overwhelming urge to read some Shakespeare. So I woke up, went to the gym, and then immediately found my copy of Shakespeare’s Complete Plays and paged to one I’d never read before.

Currently Drinking: Dunkin’ Donuts S’mores Iced Coffee (so good!)

Over a Cup: Cappuccinos, Cupcakes, and a Corpse by Harper Lin

Okay, I admit it! I’m obsessed. Cozy mysteries have been my fall back for audio listening these days. I feel like I have been consuming books like crazy the past few weeks. Functioning without an audio – yes, even while I’m at the gm – seems crazy to me now. Cozy mysteries are the perfect download, play, go about your life audiobooks.

Currently drinking: French Vanilla Cappuccino (appropriate)

Over a Cup: Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi

This morning was a “lazy” morning, which are honestly my favorite. The kind of day when you wake up too early but you can just take your time getting ready. I spent the morning lazily getting ready and listening to Homegoing. Nevermind the fact that I was supposed to have it finished yesterday for my Friend Book Club.

Today’s Drink: Caramel Macchiato
