I’m back! I just spent 8 glorious days in Montana, with visits to Glacier National Park and Yellowstone. So beautiful. I’ll share some travel photos later this week, once I’ve had a chance to unpack, do laundry, and settle into the nice cool fog of summer in San Francisco.
What did I read last week?
A pretty varied crop of books for my vacation reading:
Finders Keepers by Stephen King: I’m loving this series, and can’t wait for book #3!
Waking Lions by Ayelet Gundar-Goshen: An interesting, thought-provoking Israeli novel. My review is here.
A Fall of Marigolds by Susan Meissner: This month’s book group read. My review is here.
In audiobooks, I finished Between You & Me: Confessions of a Comma Queen by Mary Norris. Thoughts to follow…
And in graphic novels, I finally finished all existing volumes of The Walking Dead… and now have to wait until October for the next volume to be released.
Pop culture goodness:
Every year I swear that NEXT YEAR I’ll finally make it to Comic-con. Well, it still hasn’t happened, so I have to content myself with following the news from afar. I was thrilled to see these two new trailers:
Outlander returns in September! And…
The Walking Dead returns in October. Oh yes, it’s going to be a good fall!
A couple new books arrived while I was away:
Two very different sorts of books, but I’m really looking forward to both!
What will I be reading during the coming week?
Currently in my hands:
Abaddon’s Gate by James S. A. Corey: Returning to The Expanse series with book #3.
Now playing via audiobook:
Oh, I’m really not sure. I need to start something new, and I can’t quite figure out what I’m in the mood for. Probably one of these two, but we’ll just have to see what catches my attention when I get in the car Monday morning.
(I’m leaning toward The Golden Compass, because I do need to re-read all of His Dark Materials before the new book comes out!)
My book group’s next classic read, Ivanhoe, starts in August. Meanwhile, I have no long-term reading commitments at the moment, and it’s kind of nice.
So many books, so little time…
