Wishing all who are celebrating a day filled with joy… here’s hoping Santa left you some wonderful bookish gifts under your tree!
What did I read last week?
Future Home of the Living God by Louise Erdrich: I was pretty disappointed by this one. My review is here.
180 Seconds by Jessica Park: Lovely, moving YA fiction. My review is here.
Pop culture goodness:
The kiddo and I decided to watch the Lord of the Rings trilogy. I’d never watched the extended editions before. Whew. Great movies, of course, but I feel like I need a vacation after sitting through all three in one weekend!
It was nice waking up to this earlier this week:
Onward to 2018!
No new books this week. *patting self on the back*
I did, however, treat myself to some Outlander magnetic bookmarks via Etsy:
Adorable, right? You can find these (and more) here.
What will I be reading during the coming week?
Currently in my hands:
The Four Swans by Winston Graham: Book #6 in the Poldark series. After watching season 3, I have to know what happens next!
Now playing via audiobook:
Unorthodox: The Scandalous Rejection of My Hasidic Roots by Deborah Feldman: Just getting started, but pretty interesting 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 — only three chapters to go, after a wee break for the holidays.
- 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…
