What did I read during the last week?
Wilder Girls by Rory Power: I had very mixed feelings about this YA horror story. (But oh, what an amazing cover!) My review is here.
Circe by Madeline Miller: Absolutely gorgeous. I adored the audiobook. My thoughts are here.
Please Send Help by Gaby Dunn & Allison Raskin: A fun, quick read. My review is here.
In children’s books:
I read Down Cut Shin Creek: The Pack Horse Librarians of Kentucky by Kathi Appelt and Jeanne Cannella Schmitzer. Once again, thanks to Hopewell’s Public Library of Life for the recommendation. It’s a perfect companion while reading The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek by Kim Michele Richardson, reviewed here.
I treated myself to the hardcover version of Mira Grant’s newest novella. I love the look of it!
What will I be reading during the coming week?
Currently in my hands:
Finding Fraser by KC Dyer: Hey, it’s summer, and I need a break from serious reads! The story of an Outlander fan who heads to Scotland to find her very own Jamie Fraser just checks all sorts of boxes for me.
Now playing via audiobook:
Anne’s House of Dreams by L. M. Montgomery: Back to Anne! This is the 5th book in the Anne of Green Gables series, which I am utterly adoring.
Two ongoing book group reads at the moment:
- A Fugitive Green by Diana Gabaldon, from the Seven Stones To Stand or Fall collection. Finishing this week!
- The Pickwick Papers by Charles Dickens — our current classic selection.
So many books, so little time…
