What did I read last week?
Love and Other Consolation Prizes by Jamie Ford: Gorgeous book. My review is here.
The Dark Net by Benjamin Percy: Techno-horror — my review is here.
Have I mentioned yet this week that I love my book club? Well, I do. We do several secret exchanges during this year, and this week I received my summer book swap package in the mail from a lovely member of the group. So many goodies for me to enjoy!
And here’s a close-up of that awesome bookmark:
What will I be reading during the coming week?
Currently in my hands:
I’m trying to decide which of two library books I feel like starting right now:
- South Pole Station by Ashley Shelby: I started this one a couple of months ago as an ARC, but the formatting was so bad that I couldn’t enjoy it. Figure I’d give it another shot in hard copy form.
- The Waking Land by Callie Bates: Isn’t that a gorgeous cover?
Now playing via audiobook:
Rebel Angels by Libba Bray: Book #2 in the Gemma Doyle trilogy — getting close to the end. This book seemed to drag a lot more than the previous one. I may skip the audio for #3 and just zip through it in paper format instead — not sure that I want to devote another 20 hours of listening time to this series.
Ivanhoe by Sir Walter Scott: My book group’s classic read! We’re doing two chapters per week. Really enjoying it so far.
Lord John and the Hell-Fire Club by Diana Gabaldon: The wonderful and lovely Outlander Book Club is starting its Lord John readalong, in which we’ll be reading all of the Lord John novels and stories in story chronology. We’re kicking things off this week with Hellfire! Anyone who’s interested is welcome to participate, so let me know if you’d like more information on how to join in.
So many books, so little time…
