I appreciate the kind words on my post yesterday! I’m feeling a bit better, although today felt sooooo much like Friday that when I realized I still had to work tomorrow, I was devastated 😩😂 But my weather app says Fall might finally be on the horizon, so I’m looking forward to a nice weekend! I was even able to wear a sweater in my apartment today without sweating my boobs off 👏🏼 what are y’all looking forward to?
Thanks to @randomhouse
for sending my a copy of Last Day. I love the cover and look forward to reading it!
In Domenica Ruta's profoundly original novel, the end of the world comes once a year. Every May 28, humanity gathers to anticipate the planet's demise--and to celebrate as if the day is truly its last.
On this holiday, three intersecting sets of characters embark on a possibly last-chance quest for redemption. In Boston, bookish wunderkind Sarah is looking for love and maybe a cosmic reversal from the much older Kurt, a tattoo artist she met at last year's Last Day BBQ--but he's still trying to make amends to the family he destroyed long ago. Dysfunctional Karen keeps getting into trouble, especially when the voices she's been hearing coax her to abandon everything to search for her long-lost adoptive brother; her friend Rosette has left the Jehovah's Witnesses to follow a new pastor at the Last Kingdom on Earth, where she brings Karen on this fateful day. Meanwhile, above them all, three astronauts on the International Space Station, Bear, an American; Russian Svec; and billionaire Japanese space tourist Yui, contemplate their lives as well as their precious Earth from afar.
