Weekend visitors, 4th of July — it’s been a busy week!
What did I read during the last week?
The Daughters of Temperance Hobbs by Katherine Howe: A terrific follow-up to The Physick Book of Deliverance Dane. My review is here.
Hope Rides Again by Andrew Shaffer: Another great Obama/Biden action-adventure story. My review is here.
The 5th Gender by G. L. Carriger: Steamy alien fun! My review is here.
Anne of Windy Poplars by L. M. Montgomery: I’ve now listened to half the series! I’m loving these books so much. Taking a short break to listen to a few other pending titles, but then I’ll be back for book #5.
In graphic novels:
We Are Here Forever by Michelle Gish: Totally adorable aliens inhabiting an Earth after humans. (Check out the link above for Hope Rides Again for thoughts on this book too.)
Runaways, Volume 3: That Was Yesterday by Rainbow Rowell: Always good fun checking in with the Runaways.
Quiet Girl in a Noisy World: An Introvert’s Story by Debbie Tung: Ever read a book and think throughout, “hey, that’s me!”? Yup. Reading this book was exactly that. Adorable, and yet with an important kernel of truth too.
Oooh. Doesn’t this look good?
What will I be reading during the coming week?
Currently in my hands:
Wilder Girls by Rory Power: I’ve just barely started… but I’m already intrigued!
Now playing via audiobook:
Circe by Madeline Miller: My book group’s pick for July. Loving it so far!
Two ongoing book group reads at the moment:
- A Fugitive Green by Diana Gabaldon, from the Seven Stones To Stand or Fall collection.
- The Pickwick Papers by Charles Dickens — our current classic selection.
So many books, so little time…
