On the road to recovery! I’m adjusting to life in a cast — which is good, since I’ll be wearing it through the end of September. I’ve even bought myself a few cute cast covers, (a) to keep it clean and (b) to make wearing it a bit more fun. Here’s an example:
It feels like it’s been a slower reading week, probably because I went back to work and couldn’t spend quite as much time with my nose in a book!
What did I read during the last week?
The Warehouse by Rob Hart: Fun, not as dark as I’d expected. My review is here.
Word Puppets by Mary Robinette Kowal: A really enjoyable short story collection. My review is here.
I finished my audiobook re-read of Night and Silence, the 12th book in the October Daye series by Seanan McGuire — and adored it just as much the 2nd time around as I did the first time I read it. My original review is here.
After watching the newest season of Veronica Mars, I wanted more (despite that ending…), so I’ve gone back to the beginning and am slowly working my way through season 1. The actors/characters are all so adorable and baby-faced!
I picked up used copies of two non-fiction books this week:
Scatter, Adapt, and Remember was referenced in Wanderers by Chuck Wendig, and how could I possibly resist? It sounds fascinating! The San Francisco book is written by an author who writes a great weekly column on SF history, and I thought it was about time to give his book a try.
What will I be reading during the coming week?
Currently in my hands:
The Unkindest Tide by Seanan McGuire: It’s the new Toby book!!! I’m so flipping excited to be reading this.
Now playing via audiobook:
Even though I bought a hardcover copy of this book, I decided to listen to it instead, since I’ve loved the other audiobooks in the series. I just started it this weekend, but I’m loving it so far.
Two ongoing book group read right now:
- The Pickwick Papers by Charles Dickens
- Virgins by Diana Gabaldon
So many books, so little time…
