Happy Friday from the Unworldly Reader

What a long week this was!  I've been struggling through The Unraveling of Mercy Louis this week.

I'm not sure "struggling" is really the right word, because it's a good book, but it's set in the south, in a cajun type town?  I don't really understand a lot of the cultural references and I feel like I'm missing things.  I hate that.

I end up feeling dumb and like I am missing pieces of the story.  Which bugs me because I usually think I'm a pretty smart cookie.  Then I feel guilty that I don't understand another culture, so I end up feeling bad about my lack of worldliness, and this irritates me so it goes on and on.  I'm probably the only human who worries about these kind of things instead of just enjoying the story.

But on the happy Friday note, I came home to this book in my mailbox.

I'm really excited about this because I was turned down on NetGalley for this book, but getting a physical copy is even better!

I hope everyone has a great weekend filled with great books!
