No, I have not finished The Mysterious Benedict Society. I had a baby. The only thing I’ve had time to read lately is my Twitter feed. However, Swamplandia! is my book club’s next pick, and I’ve already missed two meetings, so I’m bound and determined not to miss a third.
I’ve read one of Russell’s short stories (“St. Lucy’s Home for Girls Raised by Wolves“) and absolutely loved it, so I’m setting my expectations slightly high for her first-time novel.
What are you reading?
