What I've been reading

I read While We Run, the sequel to When We Wake. (I kind of assumed when I saw that there was going to be a second book that it would be a trilogy, but no, apparently not.) It was kind of disappointing as a followup, to be honest. I didn't really take to Abdi as a narrator, and also although it's a continuation of the same narrative, it's not really the same kind of story and I don't think that it gelled. Also, even though it didn't exactly leave me wanting a third book, it did seem like it was setting one up, which is a little odd.

I read Brown Girl Dreaming and it was amazing and extremely deserving of the National Book Award win.
