What did I read last week?
After You by Jojo Moyes: Done! My review is here.
The Call of the Wild by Jack London: I listened to the audiobook this week. My review is here.
A Murder of Magpies by Judith Flanders: Sigh. Another week, another DNF. I read about 120 pages, but quit once I realized that I just wasn’t at all invested in the story. It wasn’t bad — just didn’t work for me.
This week’s new arrivals:
All sorts of goodies! I’m so excited for the new Robert Galbraith book, even though it may be a few weeks before I actually sit down to read it.
I also received this:
I guess it’s time for me to join the adult coloring book craze! Although I’m almost scared to touch it. What if I color outside the lines? Kidding…
What will I be reading during the coming week?
Currently in my hands:
I’ve just started Until We Meet Again by Renee Collins, an upcoming young adult book with a time-slip plot device. I’m really liking it so far!
Now playing via audiobook:
Revisiting my childhood! Growing up in Connecticut, The Witch of Blackbird Pond was a must-read. It’s been many years since I first read this story, and I’m having a good time listening to the audiobook.
My book group has been reading and discussing two chapters of North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell per week since the early spring… and this week, we’ll be done. It’s been a wonderful read, thanks to the smart and insightful women I’ve had the pleasure of sharing it with. Stay tuned — I’ll be posting some wrap-up thoughts in the next week or so.
We’ve also been doing two chapters per week of A Breath of Snow and Ashes, and will be done in early December. Not too shabby, for a book that’s over 1,400 pages in length!
So many book, so little time…
