Last Monday I was still at the beach. (Sigh!) And although the weather wasn't perfect while we were there (record heat and humidity all along the Atlantic coast), it was mostly sunny and great for lazing in the sand (with judicious use of sun screen, of course). I only finished two books while we were there, and nearly finished two more. But two books in one week is pretty good for me, especially with all that people-watching and Margarita-drinking to distract me. So, anyway, this is my report for the last couple of weeks.
- Finished last week:
Damaged, by Alex Kava (Working on my review of this one.)
The Egypt Game, by Zilpha Keatley Snyder (Read this one for the Banned Books Project, and very glad I did; it's a really delightful – if just slightly dated – story for young folks.)
- Recent reviews posted:
Live to Tell, by Lisa Gardner.
The Angel's Game, by Carlos Ruiz Zafon. (Just a brief report on past reading – something I hope to do more of in the future.)
- Reading this week:
The Vanishing of Katharina Linden, by Helen Grant (Still working on this one. Not much more to go, so I should be able to finish it before the end of the week.)
The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie, by Alan Bradley (Ditto on this one. Loving it, so far.)
Besides the above two that I'm still working on, I've also just got a copy of Stieg Larsson's The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo from the library (after waiting in the queue for several weeks), and I'll probably be starting in on that.
- Next up:
Something will emerge. It always does.
