What did I read last week?
Blockade Billy by Stephen King: Done! My review is here.
The Midnight Watch by David Dyer: Done! My review is here.
Hollow City by Ransom Riggs: I’m powering my way through the Miss Peregrine trilogy, and plan to write a wrap-up once I’m done. I really enjoyed book #2, and I’m moving straight ahead with the third.
In audiobooks, I finished listening to Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone — my very first time listening to a Harry Potter audiobook! Great fun. I can’t believe it’s taken me all this time to finally give the audio version a try.
Season 2 rocks! Here’s my reaction post for the3rd episode, “Useful Occupations and Deceptions”:
Pop culture delight:
Could this week be any more thrilling from a TV-fanatic’s perspective? Besides the ongoing delight of Outlander, we also have the season premiers of Game of Thrones and Turn (AMC’s terrific drama about the spy network of the American Revolution). I also watched the first episode of The Night Manager, the six-part mini-series starring Tom Hiddleston. And holy moly, The Americans is just non-stop amazing! It’s a wonder I get any reading done at all.
A few new books this week:
I’m excited for all three!
What will I be reading during the coming week?
Currently in my hands:
I’ve just started Library of Souls, the third Miss Peregrine book. I’m so glad that I’m finally finishing the series!
Now playing via audiobook:
Well, of course I couldn’t stop after book #1! It looks like I’ll be continuing my audio journey back through the world of Harry Potter for a while to come.
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…
