I’m down to the last two weeks in a cast. I’m much better at functioning with one hand — but I’ll be happy to move on.
What did I read during the last week?
The Ten Thousand Doors of January by Alix E. Harrow: Lovely story. My review is here.
Reticence by Gail Carriger: I finished the audiobook last week. My review is here.
I just finished season 2 of Veronica Mars last night. Now what? I know I’ll probably end up continuing straight on to season 3, but not without some qualms. I remember hating that season when it originally aired and swore to pretend it never happened… but for continuity’s sake, I guess I can’t ignore it forever. Sigh.
My two most highly anticipated releases for fall 2019 both came out this week! My book mail made me very happy.
Also, a family member who shares my interest in true-life survival stories sent me this book this week:
Looks terrific! I think I’m going to save it for my flights to and from a conference later this month.
What will I be reading during the coming week?
Currently in my hands:
The Testaments by Margaret Atwood: I’ve made it through about half so far, and I’m loving it.
Now playing via audiobook:
Doing an audiobook re-read of Carry On before the release of the sequel. I can’t believe how much I’d forgotten about the story… but that’s okay, it gives me a chance to be surprised and entertained all during my listening adventure.
Two ongoing book group reads right now:
- The Pickwick Papers by Charles Dickens — I’ve basically given up on keeping up with our group read of this book, but since I’m determined to finish it, I’m switching over to Serial Reader and tackling it in small daily chunks instead.
- Virgins by Diana Gabaldon — I’ve read this novella a couple of times before, but it’s great fun to reread it with the group. We’ll be done by the end of the month.
So many books, so little time…
