Not a lofty, ambitious to-be-read list consisting of 100+ book titles. Just a simple plan for the upcoming week — what I’m reading now, what I plan to read next, and what I’m hoping to squeeze in among the nooks and crannies.
How did I do with last week’s agenda?
The Shambling Guide to New York City by Mur Lafferty: Done! My review is here.
The Storied Life of A. J. Fikry by Gabrielle Zevin: Done! My review is here.
Visible City by Tova Mirvis: Done! My review is here.
Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury: After weeks of picking this one up and then putting it back down, I finally sat down to re-read Fahrenheit 451 — probably about 20 or so years after the first time I read it. Still shocking. Still amazing. I’m so glad I finally read it again!
A few new ARCs came my way this week, plus the newest volume of an amazing graphic novel series!
What’s on my reading agenda for the coming week?
I’ve just started The No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency by Alexander McCall Smith. I’ve been thinking about reading this one for years, and for some reason, it just really seemed to suit my mood this week.
After that, I’m planning to read The Mapmaker’s Daughter by Laurel Corona, which sounds completely fascinating.
And then I’ll be ready for something fun and quirky, and what could be better than the 2nd book in the Shambling Guide series? I’m so looking forward to reading The Ghost Train to New Orleans by Mur Lafferty.
And also in the works:
So many book, so little time…
