I took advantage of some bright and sunny weather to check out the magnolias at the San Francisco Botanical Gardens. So pretty!
What did I read during the last week?
The Cruel Prince by Holly Black: Reading this trilogy was a 2020 goal — and book #1 is done! My review is here. Aaaaaaand… late Sunday (yesterday), I finished book #2 too. No review yet, and no time — I must charge ahead and read #3!
Tortilla Flat by John Steinbeck: My book group finished up our group read this week. I really liked it! More Steinbeck for me, please.
The Dry by Jane Harper: Another book from my shelves, done. My review is here.
And in audiobooks:
I finished listening to The Book Of Dust: La Belle Sauvage by Philip Pullman (which was a re-read for me). The audiobook was wonderful — narrated by Michael Sheen, who did a great job and kept the story exciting and completely enthralling. I can’t wait to finally read the next book in the series.
Anyone else watching Avenue 5 on HBO? So silly… but really fun so far.
Ooh. The graphic novel version of Octavia Butler’s Parable of the Sower came out this week. It’s a gorgeous hardcover, and looks amazing.
I won a book group giveaway! This book looks like so much fun.
What will I be reading during the coming week?
Currently in my hands:
The Queen of Nothing by Holly Black: I can’t stop until I finish this trilogy!
Now playing via audiobook:
The Last Wish by Andrzej Sapkowski: I’m just about to start this audiobook. After tearing my way through The Witcher on Netflix, I figured I should go back and give the source material a try.
The Space Between by Diana Gabaldon: The latest in Outlander Book Club’s group read-alongs. This is yet another terrific novella set in the wider world of the Outlander series. It’s a re-read for me, and I’m enjoying it all over again.
So many books, so little time…
