What did I read last week?
Paper Towns by John Green: Read the week before, but I finally managed to post a brief review this past week. Interestingly, while I wasn’t crazy about the book, two of my book group’s members who work with teens felt the book was absolutely spot-on and really meaningful, so we’ve been having some great discussions.
Blue Stars by Emily Gray Tedrowe: Powerful and moving. My review is here.
Weightless by Sarah Bannon: A YA must-read. My review is here.
Hasn’t it seemed like I’ve been reading Eragon forever? Yeah, to me too. I finally finished, and wrote a slightly weird review, here.
I went to see Eddie Izzard perform as part of his Force Majeure tour on Friday, and he was brilliant!
Woo hoo! All sorts of books came my way this week, some used, some new. Look at all the pretty:
What will I be reading during the coming week?
Currently in my hands:
I’ve just started Second Life by S. J. Watson, and will be reviewing it for a blog tour post next week. I have high hopes, since I really enjoyed the author’s first book, Before I Go To Sleep.
Now playing via audiobook:
I finished listening to Dead Heat… and now I’m super-sad that I’ve run out of Patricia Briggs audiobooks!
Over the weekend, I started the audiobook of A Dirty Job by Christopher Moore. I absolutely need a refresher before the sequel, Secondhand Souls, comes out in August.
Now that we’ve finished Eragon, the kiddo and I are continuing onward with Eldest, the next in the series.
Plus, in ongoing reads, the Outlander Book Club’s group reads of A Breath of Snow and Ashes and North and South are moving forward! If anyone is interested in joining the fun, just let me know and I’ll send you the info.
So many book, so little time…
