What did I read last week?
Good Morning, Midnight by Lily Brooks-Dalton: Done! My review is here.
Fuzzy Nation by John Scalzi: I finished the audiobook, and loved it. My review is here.
Jeremy Poldark by Winston Graham: Continuing onward with the terrific Poldark series. This is book #3, which corresponds to the first half of season 2 of the TV series. Speaking of which…
Pop culture goodness:
Last week’s Poldark episode (season 2, episode 7) was very upsetting to fans… and yet this closing moment gave me a reason to cheer:
As usual, all four library hold books arrived at once. I guess I know what’ll be on the top of my TBR pile for the next few weeks.
What will I be reading during the coming week?
Currently in my hands:
Warleggan by Winston Graham: Continuing my Poldark obsession with book #4 in the series. I’m almost caught up with the TV show, and then I’ll probably take a bit of a break before going any further.
Now playing via audiobook:
What’s next? I’ve just finished Fuzzy Nation, which means I’ll need to start a new audiobook during my Monday morning commute. Top contenders for this week’s listen are:
- A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman
- The Grand Sophie by Georgette Heyer
- One Sweet Moment by Maggie Craig
To be honest, I’m teetering on the verge of quitting one of these. A Farewell To Arms just isn’t cutting it for me — although maybe it’s because I’m reading only two chapters per week. Still, it’s becoming a drag, and I’m not sure I want to continue.
Anway, as of now, my ongoing reads 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
And even though I know I’m overdoing things, I’m considering starting a new classic via Serial Reader as well. Right now, I’m leaning toward Far From the Madding Crowd by Thomas Hardy, but I think I’ll wait until after Thanksgiving before committing.
So many books, so little time…
