What did I read last week?
The Marriage Pact by Michelle Richmond: A dark thriller that becomes disturbingly sadistic. My thoughts, here.
The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi Lee: A light and engaging book that was a great antidote to the awful taste left behind by my previous book. My review is here.
In audiobooks, I finished The Day the World Came to Town: 9/11 in Gander, Newfoundland by Jim DeFede: Beautiful, moving, inspiring non-fiction. My review is here.
Pop culture goodness:
Well, of course I saw this:
What will I be reading during the coming week?
Currently in my hands:
Future Home of the Living God by Louise Erdrich
I also just started making my way through Paperbacks from Hell by Grady Hendrix, a non-fiction look at the truly horrific horror novels of the 70s and 80s. Fun stuff!
Now playing via audiobook:
180 Seconds by Jessica Park: YA fiction, pretty compelling stuff so far.
Book group reads:
- Ivanhoe by Sir Walter Scott: My book group’s classic read! We’re reading and discussing two chapters per week.
- Lord John and the Succubus by Diana Gabaldon: We’ll be starting our group read of the novella Lord John & the Succubus in January — contact me if you’d like to join in.
So many books, so little time…
