What did I read during the last week?
Daisy Jones & The Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid: Loved it! My review is here.
The Lieutenant’s Nurse by Sara Ackerman: Historical fiction/romance centered around the attack on Pearl Harbor. My review is here.
Gmorning, Gnight!: Little Pep Talks for Me & You by Lin-Manuel Miranda, illustrated by Jonny Sun. A sweet book — my review is here.
I listened to Lucky Suit by Lauren Blakely, which was an Audible freebie last month. It’s a short, fluffy, modern romance — not really my thing, but pleasant enough to keep me entertained while driving.
Pop culture goodness:
I finished watching season 5 of Grace & Frankie!
Anyone else feel like most of the characters are getting really mean? And that Frankie is becoming more and more intolerable? I’m still really having fun with this show, but certain moments really made me cringe. And now we wait for season 6!
No new books this week! I mean, yes, I did get a few library books (that will probably end up going back unread)… and well, yes, I did end up grabbing a few price-dropped e-books this week:
What will I be reading during the coming week?
Currently in my hands:
Woman 99 by Greer Macallister: Historical fiction — off to a good start!
Now playing via audiobook:
Tortall and Other Lands by Tamora Pierce: More Tortall! After finishing the Beka Cooper books, I didn’t want to pull myself completely away from this fantasy world. So far, I’m enjoying this collection of stories set in and around Tortall, featuring some familiar characters as well as introducing us to new people and magical creatures.
Two ongoing reads with my book group, plus one more on my own just for kicks:
- A Plague of Zombies by Diana Gabaldon: Continuing our journey through all of the Lord John books and stories.
- Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston: Our group classic read.
- The Old Curiosity Shop by Charles Dickens: I’m reading this classic via the Serial Reader app, and really enjoying it! I’m at 70% — the end is in sight!
So many books, so little time…
