becoming by michelle obama.

i joined a second book club. i don’t know what made me think i could handle a second book club when i was barely finishing books for the first, but alas, i did. our first book was a flop for me, so i was excited when the next book was chosen and it was becoming by michelle obama. i had been wanting to read it for a while. i got it and started reading and, as has been my style these days, read it in fits and starts. eventually i buckled down and i read it. i really loved it! i loved reading about michelle’s childhood and her jobs and career and how she just wanted to be a normal person even when her husband was president. i found that it wasn’t particularly political so even those who don’t like politics might enjoy it.

the next book for that second book club was the goldfinch. i’ve had it sitting on my bookshelf for like a year and a half so i thought it’d be a good opportunity to finally read it. i’ve had other reading goals i’ve wanted to accomplish, though, so i didn’t get around to it. i ended up telling the second book club that 2 book clubs were too many for me. i DID finish my other book club’s march book (yes, in late april) and have started may’s book and should (hopefully) be done by the time we meet.

i’m getting back on track with the reading goals!
