What did I read during the last week?
Scythe by Neal Shusterman: Loved it. My review is here.
Alanna: The First Adventure (Song of the Lioness, #1) by Tamora Pierce: Finished the audiobook! This is a re-read for me, after many, many years, and I’m really enjoying it.
Hope Never Dies by Andrew Shaffer: Noir detective fiction starring main characters Joe Biden and Barack Obama. Yes, it’s just as silly as it sounds… and so much fun. My review is here.
Pop culture goodness:
This week’s entertainment included a bit of live theater…
And a movie!
Elsewhere on the blog:
Phew! I finally did some major housekeeping on the Book Blog Meme Directory! I went through and tested all the links to verify that the memes listed are still up and active. If you’ve visited before, you’ll notice that the list has shrunk a lot… but those that remain all check out! So now, it’s time to add — if you know of other book blog memes that you love and think others will love too, please let me know! New additions always welcome.
So many new books this week:
And what’s life without a couple of new Georgette Heyer books too?
What will I be reading during the coming week?
Currently in my hands:
The Lido by Libby Page: A lovely story about a friendship between two women of different generations who meet at the local pool. I’m at about the halfway mark, and really enjoying it.
Now playing via audiobook:
In the Hand of the Goddess (Song of the Lioness, #2) by Tamora Pierce: Continuing my adventures with Alanna! It’s so much fun to revisit this series after all these years.
Book group reads:
- 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.
- We’re continuing our way through all of Diana Gabaldon’s Lord John stories, currently on the final week of The Custom of the Army.
So many books, so little time…
