Since my last update:
This week made me feel like I’m getting my reading mojo back (or maybe my life is returning to routine). I finished a bunch of books.
I finished Say You’re Sorry by Michael Robotham and even though I haven’t read the earlier book in the series I thought it was good and plan to seek out the earlier books.
I read a fun seasonal story by Susan Hill. The Man in the Picture isn’t exactly a ghost story but it’s got a great gothic feel that’s perfect for the Halloween season.
I also read the 5th in the Unwritten series. This is such a fun graphic novel series and I love all the literary stuff that is such a key part of the plot.
I’m now reading Eggsecutive Orders by Julie Hyzy. This White House Chef cozy mystery series is a lot of fun and something a bit lighter is a good change of pace from what I’ve read recently.
On audio I finished The Beautiful Mystery by Louise Penny and am now back in the pattern of waiting for the next book in the Armand Gamache series. I’ll pass on the print and wait for the audio.
An article on NPR about the 60th anniversary of Charlotte’s Web led me to get the audio version of that. It’s read by the author and while not up to today’s audiobook production standards (you can hear papers being shuffled in the background once in a while) it was just a delight to have this book read to me. I’m looking forward to writing my review of this one.
I have returned to the Amelia Peabody series for my current audiobook. I’m Listening to The River in the Sky (narrated by Barbara Rosenblat). It’s the most recently published book in the series but I’m reading the series in story chronology order rather than publication order.
Other than books and reading:
Well, based how much I read this week, there obviously wasn’t a lot other than books and reading going on around here. I still haven’t pulled the boxes of books out of the attic to start restocking the bookshelves . . . Ha! Maybe I’ll tackle one of those this afternoon . . . or not.
Browsing the iphone photos from this week:
Fall weather showed up this week with rain, fog and cooler temperatures.
We did reorganize and put up some new shelves in the garage so of course the cats had to help. Well in Abby’s case “help” is a stretch.
Hope you’re having a great weekend!
