What did I read during the last week?
Bridge of Clay by Markus Zusak: Sadly, I did not love this new novel by the author of The Book Thief. My review is here.
Someone Like Me by M. R. Carey: Just finished last night! Review to follow.
First Test (Protector of the Small, #1) by Tamora Pierce: I’m back in Tortall! I finished listening to the first book in the Protector of the Small quartet. So much fun.
Outlander is back! Season 4 premiered last night, and the first episode was amazing. The show feels like it’s opening a whole new phase, and I’m so excited to see where it goes. I’ll be doing reaction posts for each episode, as I did last season. Stay turned for my episode 1 post, coming today or tomorrow.
Elsewhere in pop culture:
The big entertainment events for me this week:
I saw Waitress, and loved it! Now I need to go back and re-watch the movie version.
It was the final Rick Grimes episode on The Walking Dead last night. That ending. Whoa.
The library’s Big Book Sale was this week, and I went — twice! I wrote about my first trip here… and then I went back and came home with yet more books. Here are my two book hauls from the sale:
And hey, that’s not all! I won a giveaway of The Astronaut’s Son by Tom Siegel, courtesy of Jennifer – Tar Heel Reader, and the book (plus some extra goodies) arrived this week.
What will I be reading during the coming week?
Currently in my hands:
The Wild Dead by Carrie Vaughn: I’m so excited for this book! It’s the sequel to Bannerless, which I loved.
Now playing via audiobook:
Page (Protector of the Small, #2) by Tamora Pierce: Really enjoying this quartet!
Book group reads:
- Classic read: My book group’s current classic read is Middlemarch by George Eliot. We’re reading and discussing two chapters per week, aiming to finish in January.
- The Scottish Prisoner by Diana Gabaldon. An ongoing group read, two chapters per week — we’ll be finished in December. Want to join in? Ask me how!
So many books, so little time…
