What did I read last week?
The Things We Keep by Sally Hepworth: Beautiful, moving story. My review is here.
Lock In by John Scalzi: Outstanding science fiction with a crime thriller twist. See my review here.
And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie: My very first Christie experience! Loved it. My thoughts are here.
I gave in to curiosity and read Life and Death: Twilight Reimagined. Know what? It was kind of fun. I wrote all about it here.
I finished listening to The Outlandish Companion, Volume I. Check out my reading and listening guide, here.
And finally, my book group’s January pick:
Archivist Wasp by Nicole Kornher-Stace: I actually read this one during the previous week, but finally wrote up my thoughts — and for a bit more depth, included some opposing viewpoints from my book club friends as well, here.
Just a couple new books this week:
What will I be reading during the coming week?
Currently in my hands:
The Storyteller by Jodi Picoult: I’ve only read about 10% so far, but I’m already hooked. My husband just started this one too — and I don’t think we’ve ever read the same book at the same time before. How cute is that?
Now playing via audiobook:
I’m just about to start The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot, a book that has been on my to-read list for far too long. I tend to make non-fiction books my last priority, no matter how interesting the topic might be. I think audiobooks might be the key to overcoming my resistance!
And we’re off! My book group is reading and discussing two chapter per week of both Written in My Own Heart’s Blood by Diana Gabaldon and Emma by Jane Austen. This is an online group, and anyone is welcome to join us — so if you’re interested, just ask me how!
So many books, so little time…
