Happy November! Is anyone else freaking out this week and staying awake with anxiety about the election?
Maybe a better question is — is anyone not?
What did I read during the last week?
A Stitch in Time by Kelley Armstrong: Loved it! My review is here.
Of Noble Family (The Glamourist Histories, #5) by Mary Robinette Kowal: I loved this series so much, and can’t believe I’m done! My review is here.
Plain Bad Heroines by Emily M. Danforth: Funny, haunting, creepy, unique! My review is here.
Good Talk: A Memoir in Conversations by Mira Jacob: Another terrific recommendation from my terrific daughter! My review is here.
Pop culture & TV:
I got sucked into watching Virgin River, and while sometimes the plot was a little too sappy for me, I’m now obsessed with the location and scenery, and want nothing more than a cozy cabin along the side of that beautiful river. Question for anyone who’s read the books: Are they good? Would a reader who only-sometimes tolerates romance novels enjoy them?
Thank you, lovely people at Orbit, for these two books that arrived this week!
What will I be reading during the coming week?
Currently in my hands:
Mort by Terry Pratchett: It’s a new month, which means it’s time for another Discworld book! I’m excited to be reading Mort — this is the one I hear the most good things about.
Now playing via audiobook:
Mythos by Stephen Fry: My daughter convinced me that I had to listen to this audiobook, and as usual, she was correct. Really liking it so far!
Outlander Book Club is re-reading Outlander! We’re reading and discussing one chapter per week. This week: Chapter 21, “Une Mauvais Quart D’Heure After Another”. Uh oh. Another dramatic chapter to deal with.
So many books, so little time…
