In real life:
I’m back! I had a wonderful time away. Isn’t vacation a great concept? I’m hoping this cheery, relaxed feeling will last me longer than my first day back at work.
What did I read last week?
Well, first of all, check out what I read on vacation! I wrote a wrap-up post, here.
Since getting home, I’ve also read:
Nothing Gold Can Stay and Better to Rest by Dana Stabenow: I’m on a roll with the Liam Campbell mysteries, and just couldn’t stop until I finished #3 and #4! Nothing Gold Can Stay was particularly good, but really, I’ve loved them all.
Emma by Jane Austen: Done! My book group’s group read of Emma ended this week, and it was sensational! I’ve read Emma a couple of times before, but this time around, we read and discussed two chapters per week, and it was a blast. Here’s a shout-out to my book group peeps, who are a fun, insightful, smart group of readers!
Outlander season finale:
As I was dashing out the door on the way to the airport, I managed to put together my final “insta-reaction” post for the season. Season 2’s finale was everything I’d hoped for. Check out my post:
No new books this week. Hey, I was out of town!
What will I be reading during the coming week?
Currently in my hands:
I haven’t actually started my next book yet. It’s a toss-up between these three. Decisions, decisions…
Now playing via audiobook:
I had to leave this audiobook on pause while I was away, but I’m excited to jump back into listening this week. It’s hilarious, and Wil Wheaton’s narration is a huge plus.
My book group is reading and discussing two chapters per week of Written in My Own Heart’s Blood by Diana Gabaldon. This is an online group, and anyone is welcome to join us — so if you’re interested, just ask me how! (We’re currently at chapter 55 or thereabouts, but feel free to jump in anytime.)
Our next group classic read will be A Farewell To Arms by Ernest Hemingway, starting August 15th. Interested? Let me know, and I’ll give you the details!
So many books, so little time…
