Recent Reads | March

Last month I logged all of the books I read - a hefty nine novels in total. This month I managed fewer titles as I was constantly overwhelmed with work and previous commitments and (tbh) new seasons of television shows. I still managed 6 books but they were far shorter in length and complexity than February's selections.



The Queen of the Night by Alexander Chee
At 550 pages, The Queen of the Night could stand to be edited down quite a lot, as the book took far too much time to tell the story it attempted. Despite its size, I enjoyed Chee's latest - it's an ambitious, sweeping tale of a girl who makes her way from America to 1880s France and becomes first a circus performer, then an escort, and finally an opera singer. The romances seemed forced and there were moments when it seemed that Chee couldn't write women, but nevertheless, it was an entertaining read that occupied me for several weeks.

I've been in a creative rut these past few months; college takes up most of my focus and what remains gets pushed into work and friends. After spending the majority of my weeklong spring break on a cruiseship in the Bahamas where I was without internet/cell service/responsibilities, I felt like my internal drive had been reset. Now post-break, I'm ready to re-direct my focus to tackling new challenges and making some changes in my life routine. As a little marker, here's what I've been up to these days.
