Happy (almost) Thanksgiving! I hope everyone is staying safe and planning low-key holiday celebrations. Enjoy your pie and turkey!
What did I read during the last week?
The Turn of the Key by Ruth Ware: My book group book for November. Meh. Just a 3-star read for me. My review is here.
The Princes in the Tower by Alison Weir: Fascinating history. My review is here.
Clanlands by Sam Heughan and Graham McTavish: I listened to the audio version of these two actors’ fabulous Scottish adventure. My review (and a fun trailer) are here.
Pop culture & TV:
I finished season 4 of The Crown, and loved it. But I’m sad that we’ve reached the end of this particular cast, as new actors will take over to portray the royals in seasons 5 and 6.
I’m also so happy that His Dark Materials is back! Season 2 is off to a great start.
Puzzle of the week:
Another fun one!
It’s a new Seanan McGuire book! Always a reason to cheer.
What will I be reading during the coming week?
Currently in my hands:
The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue by V. E. Schwab: I’ve read about 100 pages so far — dying to see what happens!
Now playing via audiobook:
The Cruel Prince by Holly Black: I read this book earlier in 2020, but I happened to see that the library had the audiobook available to borrow, and I think revisiting this terrific trilogy sounds like a great idea!
Outlander Book Club is re-reading Outlander! We’re reading and discussing one chapter per week. This week: Chapter 24, “By the Pricking of My Thumbs”.
Our current classic read is part 2 of Don Quixote. My book group is reading and discussing three chapters per week. I solemnly swear that I’m going to try my best to keep up!
So many books, so little time…
