What did I read during the last week?
This seems to have been quite a week for graphic novels! But some other reading too…
The Beauty, volumes 1 – 5 by Jeremy Haun et al: See my write-up of this graphic novel series here.
The Bookshop of the Broken Hearted by Robert HIllman: Moving historical fiction. My review is here.
A Fire Story by Brian Fies: A graphic novel portraying the author’s experiences during the 2017 California wildfires. My review is here.
I also LOVED…
I swear, this book IS me. And I suspect it’s all of you too — the author absolutely nails the glories and obsessions that come with being a book lover.
Pop culture goodness:
As I write this on Sunday night, I’m counting down — just like everyone else — to the season premiere of Game of Thrones!
A few treats:

What will I be reading during the coming week?
Currently in my hands:
Kingdom of Needle & Bone by Mira Grant: Trust Mira Grant to completely freak me out! A novella about deadly disease outbreaks, with a decidely anti-anti-vaxxer agenda.
Now playing via audiobook:
An American Marriage by Tayari Jones: Just finished Sunday afternoon – review to follow. And since I finished, I started…
Burn Bright by Patricia Briggs: A re-read via audio, because I love the worlds created by Patricia Briggs and want to immerse myself again before her new book comes out in May!
My Outlander book group is continuing our Lord John read-along with two Lord John (or Lord John-adjacent) stories from the Seven Stones to Stand or Fall collection. We’re reading the story Besieged right now.
So many books, so little time…
