What did I read last week?
Three five-star reads in one week!
The Guest Room by Chris Bohjalian: Done! My review is here.
Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli: Done! My review is here.
Childhood’s End by Arthur C. Clarke: Done! My review is here.
In graphic novels…
Nimona by Noelle Stevenson: I really loved this story of a sidekick who’s so much more than she appears, the villain she aligns with (who isn’t maybe all that villainous after all), and the superhero/golden boy who isn’t quite all that perfect. It’s fun seeing the comic book standards turned upside down. The characters are terrific, the dialogue is clever, and the illustrations are spot-on. Highly recommended!
Yet another week with no new books! This must be some kind of record for me.
What will I be reading during the coming week?
Currently in my hands:
The Rest of Us Just Live Here by Patrick Ness: I bought this one several months ago, and I think it’s about time to get started!
Now playing via audiobook:
I’m plugging along with this massive, long audiobook version of Diana Gabaldon’s guide to the Outlander series. It’s quite a fun listen, with detailed plot synopses, character guides, and all sorts of fun tidbits narrated by Herself.
None at the moment! My book club is in between group reads right now, with plans to start a new classic read and a Gabaldon read-along in January. Until then, it’s every reader for herself.
So many book, so little time…
