What did I read last week?
The Japanese Lover by Isabel Allende: Finished it just in time for my book group discussion! My review is here.
A Deeper Sleep by Dana Stabenow: I can never get enough Kate Shugak — this is #15 in the series, and it was excellent, just as I expected.
Carry On by Rainbow Rowell: My daughter and I promised each other to read this book over the weekend… and we finished within a half-hour of one another. AND we both loved it. My review is here.
In audiobooks, I finished listening to The Magicians by Lev Grossman, with narration by Mark Bramhall. This was a re-read for me, inspired by the Syfy TV series (which was great), and I just loved it. Now I’m finally ready to read books 2 & 3!
I can’t believe this is the 2nd to last episode of the season!
Here’s my reaction post for season 2’s 12th episode, “The Hail Mary”:
I won a book! I’m so excited to have won a giveaway from The Orangutan Librarian. Such a great-looking edition of Terry Pratchett’s Mort!
And… Now that I’ve gotten my Amazon credit from the Apple settlement, I treated myself to a book that’s been highly recommended, with more spending soon to come.
What will I be reading during the coming week?
Currently in my hands:
Holy moly, I have no idea what I feel like reading next. A few of the choices are above… we’ll see which one has the opening page that grabs me the most.
Now playing via audiobook:
Back to Harry Potter! I stopped this one in the middle to listen to The Magicians, and now I’m back. Between HP, The Magicians, and Carry On, I may have reached my legal limit when it comes to Chosen Ones and schools of magic.
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…
