I ended up staying home three days this week due to a family medical situation (all is well, but I was just needed around the house) — so on the plus side, I ended up with more time for reading than usual!
What did I read during the last week?
Storm Cursed by Patricia Briggs: The newest Mercy book! Loved it, of course. My review is here.
Red, White & Royal Blue: A totally adorable love story! Really a delightful read. My review is here.
The Unhoneymooners: Light & fluffy romance. My review is here.
And a novella too! I read (and loved) The Undefeated by Una McCormack. My review is here.
I did a lot of thinking about TV this week, I guess, since I posted not one but two TV-related pieces:
After my somewhat insane splurging last week, I made it through a week with no book purchases at all. Yay, me!
What will I be reading during the coming week?
Currently in my hands:
Westside by W. M. Akers: Just getting started, but I like it already!
Now playing via audiobook:
A River of Stars by Vanessa Hua: My book group’s pick for May. Getting close to the end — which is good, since our discussion starts this week.
Two ongoing book group reads at the moment:
- A Fugitive Green by Diana Gabaldon, from the Seven Stones To Stand or Fall collection: We’re just starting this (long) short story (novella?) this week. I’ve read it once before, but it’s a good one! Looking forward to sharing it with the group
- The Pickwick Papers by Charles Dickens — our current classic selection. I’m all caught up, which is good — it’s my turn to write chapter summaries this week.
Pop culture footnote:
I’m writing this on Sunday, counting the hours until the Game of Thrones finale. My anxiety levels are creeping higher and higher. I hope the ending isn’t a major letdown.
So many books, so little time…
