Packing the Paperbacks: Four Months in Florida

I just moved in to my new apartment for a semester-long internship in Florida!!!  I’m sure I won’t have much time for reading since I’ll be working a minimum of thirty hours per week, probably double that some weeks, and (hopefully) exploring in my spare time, but I’m going to try to read at least a little while I’m here.  I don’t want to take too much time away from reading because it is essentially my job as an English major, and taking a semester off would make it so much more difficult to return to in the fall.  Plus, reading is how I relax and rejuvenate as an introvert, so I’ll be sure to make some time for self-care in the form of books during my internship.  However, having said that, it will be so nice to take a little break from schoolwork and all the reading that comes with it!

Here are the books I’m packing with me for my semester in Florida:

Too Much and Not the Mood by Durga Chew-Bose
Eileen by Ottessa Moshfegh
Speedboat by Renata Adler
Quiet by Susan Cain
The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle by Haruki Murakami
Outline by Rachel Cusk
Marlena by Julie Buntin
Golden Child by Claire Adam
Motherhood by Sheila Heti
Bibliophile by Jane Mount

I also had some last-minute additions, not pictured above:

White Teeth by Zadie Smith
My Brilliant Friend by Elena Ferrante

It was so hard to choose from my stack of unread books!  Crossing my fingers that I can get to some of these while I’m there.  Wish me luck!
