What did I read during the last week?
The Perfect Mother by Aimee Molloy: My book group’s pick for October. My thoughts are here.
Ivory Apples by Lisa Goldstein: Sisters, magic, and a reclusive author! My review is here.
A Very Distant Shore by Jenny Colgan: At 160 pages, this is a sweet, light read, very enjoyable. It’s a nice little treat for fans of this author.

And in book group news:
We’re reading the Outlander-related novella A Leaf on the Wind of All Hallows — it’s such a good one! I’ve read it before, but it’s really great to read and discuss it with the group.
So many books, so little time…
