What did I read last week?
Read and reviewed:
Eligible by Curtis Sittenfeld: I loved this 21st century retelling of Pride and Prejudice! My review is here.
Red Clocks by Leni Zumas: Hmmm. See my review here if you want to know what I thought!
Read but not reviewed:
Beneath the Sugar Sky by Seanan McGuire: I was a bit let down by this book, which just doesn’t live up to the magic and wonder of the previous two in the series. The writing is still lovely, but the plot didn’t quite work for me.
Ivanhoe by Sir Walter Scott: Finished! My book group’s classic read of Ivanhoe came to an end this past week, and I’m so glad to have read it. Another great choice of a book I probably never would have read on my own.
Two new books this week:
What will I be reading during the coming week?
Currently in my hands:
Still Me by Jojo Moyes: I’m excited to be reading this follow up to After You… if only I could remember what happened in the previous book.
Now playing via audiobook:
Miss Kopp’s Midnight Confessions by Amy Stewart: Another terrific adventure featuring the Kopp Sisters! I have another day or two of listening to go.
Book group reads:
- Since we finished Ivanhoe this past week, we’re in between classic reads at the moment. Our next will start in February.
- Lord John and the Succubus by Diana Gabaldon: Our group read of this novella continues — contact me if you’d like to join in.
So many books, so little time…
