I may be a little absent this week. I’m flying to the East Coast for a few days to celebrate a family graduation. Exciting times!
What did I read during the last week?
How To Walk Away by Katherine Center: Contemporary fiction with romance, tragedy, and even a little humor. My review is here.
Surface Tension by Mike Mullin: Action-packed YA fiction. My review is here.
How to Marry a Werewolf by Gail Carriger: A super-cute novella! My review is here.
In audiobooks, I finished:
Only Human (The Themis Files, #3) by Sylvain Neuvel: The fantastic wrap-up of an amazingly great trilogy. Check out my review, here.
I didn’t buy any new books this week, although I did get this from the library. Looks like so much fun!
What will I be reading during the coming week?
Currently in my hands:
I’m catching up on ARCs this week. My two priorities are:
- The Family Next Door by Sally Hepworth
- Every Note Played by Lisa Genove
Now playing via audiobook:
So You’ve Been Publicly Shamed by Jon Ronson: Ronson is a fascinating writer, and does an excellent job of narrating his own works. I’m only a few chapters into this look at public shaming, but so far, it’s oddly compelling. I really enjoyed listening to The Butterfly Effect (about the unintended consequences of the availability of free porn) by Ronson last year.
Book group reads:
It feels repetitive to list these week after week… except I really am reading them week after week!
- Lord John and the Brotherhood of the Blade by Diana Gabaldon: Outlander Book Club is doing a group read of LJ&BotB, two chapters per week. If you’d like to join in, ask me how!
- Classic read: My book group’s current classic read is Middlemarch by George Eliot. We’re reading and discussing two chapters per week… and we have a long way still to go.
So many books, so little time…
