This is going to be a double edition of My Week in Review because last week I didn’t get a chance to write a post. And by that I mean last week was one of these guys ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

First things first, I finished up Ann Patchett’s Commonwealth this week and it was incredible. I want to write a real review later, but if you haven’t gotten it yet, I would definitely put it on your wish list for the holidays.

If I haven’t gushed about Another Round on my blog yet then let me do so now. THIS PODCAST IS THE BEST. This episode about drugs, addiction, and race was particularly fascinating.

It was kind of a low reading week for me, but I did manage to finish The Clasp by Sloane Crosley which was okay ( like a 3/3.5), and I worked A TON.  Highlights from this week are from Ask Polly and Samantha Irby whose book, Meaty I finished last week and it was pretty great (like a 3.5/4)! Below is just a taste of the kind of writing that she does, but I’d also recommend checking out her blog

What I read:

Ask Polly: How Do I Dump my Crappy Best Friend  NY Mag this. article. I am obsessed with Ask Polly and this exactly why. There were moments when  had to physically remove my face from my phone because Polly was getting it too right.

Here’s How to Use a Bullet Journal for Better Mental Health  Buzzfeed
