Back to the grind! It was hard to get back into the rhythm of working every day after a few days off the previous week. Since I stayed home for those days off, I’m still dying for a real getaway, someplace hot and sunny… where we can social distance and avoid contact with non-family members. I have no idea where yet, but I’m going to work on it!
What did I read during the last week?
Time After Time by Lisa Grunwald: Beautiful. My review is here.
The Blue Salt Road by Joanne M. Harris: A gorgeous selkie story. My review is here.
The Seventh Bride by T. Kingfisher: This was my audiobook listen for the past week — a really clever and engaging fairy tale. Definitely recommended!
Pop culture & TV:
Lots more Schitt’s Creek! I’m on season 4 now. Loving it!
Puzzle of the week:
Ah, an image of my dream location!
I bought one Kindle book this week that my husband requested, but that’s it!
I’ll probably start this one during the coming week, once I finish my current read.
What will I be reading during the coming week?
Currently in my hands:
The Sinister Mystery of the Mesmerizing Girl by Theodora Goss: The 3rd and final book in the Athena Club trilogy. So much fun! I’m almost done, and will share thoughts on this book and the trilogy as a whole in the next few days.
Now playing via audiobook:
News of the World by Paulette Jiles: This has been on my to-read shelf for a few years now. I’ve only just started, but so far I’m liking this Western.
Outlander Book Club’s re-read of Outlander is underway. We’re reading and discussing one chapter per week. This week: Chapter 7, “Davie Beaton’s Closet”. Anyone who’s interested is welcome to participate, so just ask me how.
Onward with Don Quixote! Plugging away, two chapters per week. I can’t say that I’m deeply enthralled or anything, but I’m glad to be keeping up with the group read.
So many books, so little time…
