What did I read last week?
To the Bright Edge of the World by Eowyn Ivey: Done! My review is here.
Lady Susan by Jane Austen: Done! Check out my post on the book (and the movie adaptation, Love & Friendship), here.
Etta and Otto and Russell and James by Emma Hooper: Done! My review is here.
I just happened to be walking by a used book store this week… and couldn’t resist its siren song. Ten minutes later, I walked out with these:
What will I be reading during the coming week?
Currently in my hands:
Leave Me by Gayle Forman: I’m excited to be reading Gayle Forman’s newest — her first book written for adults.
Now playing via audiobook:
I’m loving the Goblet of Fire audiobook. It’s startling, after all these years of reading Harry Potter books, to realize that my memory of the books is definitely affected by having seen the movies so many times. There are things that I could swear are lines from the books… except they’re not — they’re lines from the movies instead. Confusing! But so much fun to revisit these books, over and over and over again. I have about four hours worth of listening to go, so I should be finished up by the end of this week.
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!
And… our new classic read is A Farewell To Arms by Ernest Hemingway! If you’d like to join in, send me a message and I’ll pass along the details.
So many books, so little time…
