I’m back! I spent the past week in Florida, both vacationing (hello, Universal Studios!) and visiting family. All in all, fun – but exhausting. But hey, I did manage to read a lot!
What did I read last week?
Six Wakes by Mur Lafferty: Awesome science fiction! My review is here.
Unequal Affection by Lara S. Ormiston: A terrific Pride and Prejudice retelling. My review is here.
And two novellas:
Rolling in the Deep by Mira Grant: Horror with mermaids! My review is here.
Give In To the Feeling by Sarah Zama: Supernatural doings in a 1920s Chicago speakeasy. Check it out here.
Pop culture goodness:
During the family portion of our trip, my son and I found ourselves with time on our hands in the evenings, so here’s how we entertained ourselves:
I also watched this on one of our flights (hurray for Amazon Video downloads), and thought it was one of the best movies I’ve seen all year:
I treated myself to this gorgeous edition of Pride and Prejudice:
This picture doesn’t actually do the book justice: It’s a beautiful hardcover edition, with fancy edges and amazing illustrations throughout. Definitely something to savor and treasure!
What will I be reading during the coming week?
Currently in my hands:
Caliban’s War by James S. A. Corey: I’m reading the 2nd book of the Expanse series, and loving it! And PS – who else was thrilled to hear this week that the Syfy series based on these books has been renewed for a 3rd season?
Now playing via audiobook:
Since I was away, I ditched audiobooks for the week and listened to this instead:
But now I need to decide on a new audiobook as I move back into my daily routine.
My book group is reading and discussing Written in My Own Heart’s Blood by Diana Gabaldon — 2 chapters per week — with an end date coming up in June.
Outlander Book Club’s group read of One Hundred Years of Solitude continues! We’re discussing one chapter per week.
So many books, so little time…
