What did I read last week?
The Wrath & the Dawn and The Rose & the Dagger by Renee Ahdieh: Done! My thoughts on these two books are here.
Karen Memory by Elizabeth Bear: Done! My review is here.
The Glittering World by Robert Levy: I read this, but didn’t review it. This is one odd book. It seems like a changeling story at the beginning, but gets weirder and weirder as it goes along. Don’t get me wrong — I’m a big fan of weird, but this book didn’t make a whole lot of sense. An interesting premise to start with, but by the end I just couldn’t wait to be done so I could move on to something I’d actually enjoy.
The Dispatcher by John Scalzi, narrated by Zachary Quinto: Loved it! My review is here.
The new illustrated Harry Potter arrived!
What will I be reading during the coming week?
Currently in my hands:
Orphan Train by Christina Baker Kline: I’ve been meaning to read this one for a while now. Three cheers for my book group discussion this coming week, finally motivating me to get it done!
Now playing via audiobook:
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix by J. K. Rowling: I started this audiobook a while ago, then took a break to listen to a few other books. It’s always nice to get back to Harry.
With my book group (2 chapters per week of each):
- Written in My Own Heart’s Blood by Diana Gabaldon
- A Farewell To Arms by Ernest Hemingway
Via the Serial Reader app (read about it here):
- Moby Dick by Herman Melville: — Making progress. I’m now at 82%. Man, I’m ready to be done.
So many books, so little time…
