In real life:
Good lord, when will I ever get back to a normal routine? I’ve been going 100 miles per minute, or at least that’s how it feels. I realized over the weekend that I hadn’t written a book review in about 2 weeks! Well, at least now I’ve posted one, and hope to get back on track soon.
What did I read last week?
Messenger by Lois Lowry: The 3rd book in The Giver Quartet was not my favorite, but it was still good enough to make me want to read book #4!
Paper Girls by Brian K. Vaughan: This graphic novel about four 12-year-old girls on their paper route in the 1980s surprised me in all the right ways. I will definitely want to read volume 2.
Every Heart a Doorway by Seanan McGuire: A slim, lovely book. Check out my review here.
I finished my Outlander rewatch. My final rewatch post about episodes 115 and 116 does not include recaps, because those two episodes are so brutal that I just couldn’t bring myself to write about them in any sort of detail. They’re incredibly well done and should have resulted in Emmy awards for all, but at the same time, I’ll be perfectly happy never to have to watch them again.
… Season 2 has begun! I’m thrilled beyond words that the show is back, and loved the first episode of the new season. I’ll be writing reaction posts each week, kicking it off with:
Three new releases arrived this week, hot off the press! And I’ve already managed to read two of them.
What will I be reading during the coming week?
Currently in my hands:
Son by Lois Lowry, the 4th and final book in The Giver series.
Next up, I have an ARC of a new release: The Beauty Queen of Jerusalem by Sarit Yishai-Levi.
Now playing via audiobook:
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…
