recently finished: Finally finished The Silent Patient. I listened to Anne Lamott’s Help, Thanks, Wow: The Three Essential Prayers, read by her. Amazing! and in honor of St. Patrick’s Day, I read Murder in an Irish Pub. This is a cozy series I’ve been meaning to get into for awhile. And I was wrong. For waiting so long. It’s fantastic.

currently reading: Still reading The Killer in Me and loving it. Also reading Hendrik Groen’s On the Bright Side. Both of his diaries make me want to buy copies and hand them out to everyone. And I’m almost to the end of Beautiful Bad, and I can’t wait to see what happens! There are so many good thrillers out this year!

up next: The Altruists, which I chose partly because of the title. I remember studying altruism in social psych, and it fascinates me still. And Professor Chandra Follows His Bliss. I would like to be better about following mine. I have my bliss (shocking, but it involves books). And I have a job I like. But I wish I could find a way to merge the two, so that I can get paid to read and write about the books I love. So far, that is easier said than done, but that is my wish. Maybe, after listening to Anne Lamott all week, maybe that is my prayer.
