In real life:
Happy August! Or as we used to say at my summer camp on the first day of each month, Rabbit Rabbit!
What did I read last week?
First and foremost, this:
Loved it! My reaction post is here.
I also read:
Restless in the Grave by Dana Stabenow: Continuing with my Kate Shugak obsession, I read book #19 in the series. One more to go, and I’ll be all caught up!
Agent to the Stars by John Scalzi: I finished listening to this hilarious sci-fi audiobook, and loved it! Check out my review here.
Pop Culture Goodness:
My book group finished our months-long read of Emma earlier in July, and we’ve all been watching movie adaptations. During the past week, I watched both of these:
Both were quite good, although with very different portrayals of Emma and the rest of the characters.
A few new books last week — a graphic novel, my book group’s next classic read, and a book I plan to take with me when I travel this week — so glad it arrived in time!
And best of all, in case I didn’t make it perfectly clear already:
SO. FRICKIN’. FANTASTIC.
What will I be reading during the coming week?
Currently in my hands:
Bad Blood by Dana Stabenow: The last published Kate Shugak novel (#20), although I understand that #21 is in the works. I guess I’ll have to find a new series to obsess over!
I have another trip coming up this week, and so far my traveling book companions are likely to be:
… and whatever delights are hidden on my Kindle!
Now playing via audiobook:
Entirely coincidentally, I’ve gone back to the Harry Potter audiobooks! Just started Goblet of Fire, and it’ll probably take me a few weeks to get through it. And I’ll love every moment, I’m sure. (I’m on a Harry Potter high at the moment — can you tell?)
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!
So many books, so little time…
