What did I read last week?
Sleeping Beauties by Stephen King and Owen King: At some point, I became convinced that I was stuck in some sort of weird time loop in which I was forever reading Sleeping Beauties… but finally, after 8 days and 700 pages, I’m done! I’ll write up some thoughts to share in the next few days.
My reaction post for the 4th episode is here. Stay tuned for more — my reaction post for episode 5 will be up in a day or two.
Here’s a peek at episode 5:
I went on an EBay spree and ordered a bunch of Georgette Heyer books. Here’s what’s arrived so far:
And 3 or 4 more are on the way!
Also, a wonderful coworker (and friend) gave me an Amazon gift card a couple of weeks ago for a birthday present, and here’s what I ended up treating myself to:
I can see hours and hours of blissful nerding out in my future.
What will I be reading during the coming week?
Currently in my hands:
LaRose by Louise Erdrich: Just starting! I’ve really been looking forward to this one.
Now playing via audiobook:
The Amber Spyglass by Philip Pullman: Book three of the His Dark Materials trilogy — should be done later this week. The full-cast recording is really remarkably good.
Ivanhoe by Sir Walter Scott: My book group’s classic read! We’re reading and discussing two chapters per week.
Lord John and the Private Matter by Diana Gabaldon: Outlander Book Club is doing a Lord John readalong — we’ll be reading all of the Lord John novels and stories in story chronology. Let me know if you’d like to participate! All are welcome.
So many books, so little time…
