What did I read last week?
Scarlet and Cress (Lunar Chronicles, books 2 & 3) by Marissa Meyer: It’s kind of painful to be caught up. Now all I can do is wait for the next release! My thoughts on my Lunar book binge are here.
Glory O’Brien’s History of the Future by A. S. King: Hmm. I read it – but don’t really have anything to say about it. I’ve really enjoyed other books by this author, and I think she’s very talented — but Glory O’Brien was just odd, and I didn’t connect with it in the slightest. For another take, though, you could check out Rick Yancey’s review from last week’s New York Times.
I read Hyperbole and a Half by Allie Brosh for this month’s Fields & Fantasies book club discussion. Stay tuned! The discussion post will be up in the next few days.
Elsewhere on the blog:
No one in my family buys me books. Sad, but true. They all seem to think I have enough books… what do they know? So I filled myself up with holiday joy by treating myself to a few books:
What will I be reading during the coming week?
Currently in my hands:
It’s time to catch up on the wonderful Saga series by Brian K. Vaughan, now that I have volume 4 in my hot little hands. Rereading volumes 1 and 2 and then going straight through 3 and 4 sounds like a perfect way to enjoy New Year’s week.
Now playing via audiobook:
The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey: Re-reading via audiobook, and it’s mighty good the 2nd time around!
Reading with my kiddo:
Talking to Dragons (Enchanted Forest Chronicles #4) by Patricia C. Wrede: It feels like we’ve been reading this one forever… and our out-of-sync schedule during the holiday season isn’t helping matters. Sigh.
Book club reading:
Classic read: The Scarlet Pimpernel by Baroness Emmuska Orczy. (One chapter per week)
A Breath of Snow and Ashes by Diana Gabaldon: Reading and discussing two chapters per week, from now through the end of 2015!
