In real life:
I had some minor outpatient surgery at the end of the week (arthroscopic surgery on my knee), which has left me a bit groggy as I hobble around the house on crutches. I’m glad it’s done, and hope to be back to my normal exercise routine in a few weeks. Meanwhile, ibuprofen and icepacks are my friends. I’m reading while I’m home, but haven’t been able to concentrate enough to dig into anything too heavy.
What did I read last week?
Still Alice by Lisa Genova: I read the book and watched the movie, and both were amazing. I wrote a post about them both here.
Roses and Rot by Kat Howard: Done! My review is here.
My Best Friend’s Exorcism by Grady Hendrix: Done! My review is here.
I finished listening to HP2, and can’t wait to start #3!
Season 2 rocks! Here’s my reaction post for the 6th episode, “Best Laid Schemes”:
One new book arrived this week — my book group’s upcoming read for June:
What will I be reading during the coming week?
Currently in my hands:
The Versions of Us by Laura Barnett: I always love Sliding Doors types of stories.
Now playing via audiobook:
Virgins is a novella by Diana Gabaldon that originally appeared in the Dangerous Women anthology (thoughts here), but is now available as a stand-alone ebook and audiobook. I’ve read it before, but I’m really enjoying the audio version, narrated by Allan Scott-Douglas, who sings the Jamie parts in Outlander: The Musical. (Yes, there is such a thing as Outlander: The Musical. I’ll have to tell you about it another time!)
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…
