2018 Reading Challenge: Week Two

As I stated in my earlier post, my reading goal for this year is two read 52 books.

In order to stay on top of my goal of 52 books, I need to finish reading at least one book a week. This week I read two but only finished one.

Here is what I read this week: (Like with all my book posts, I went ahead and included affiliate links from Amazon. Read the full disclosure here)

We Are Never Meeting in Real Life: Essays by Samantha Irby

My rating: 4 stars

Part of my goal for this reading challenge is to expose myself to a variety of different voices. I've read enough books by straight white guys in school, so I'm trying to pick books by authors from different backgrounds.

Samantha Irby's We Are Never Meeting in Real Life is a collection of essays detailing her experiences such as the deaths of her parents and her first time having sex with her wife.

I bought the audiobook version of this book on the audible. I always enjoy reading collections of essays and this is read by the author, which is something I like.

I laughed out loud several times throughout this book. It's funny with some moments that are little heartbreaking, which works well with Irby's honest writing style.
