Monday Malarkey

After doing a little yardwork in the heat, this is exactly how I feel:

Only one arrival, this week:

The Woman in the Photo by Mary Hogan was sent by HarperCollins for review. Looks nice and creepy, doesn't it? It's a combination historical and contemporary. I like that kind of book if it's done well. I'm looking forward to seeing if this one is as entertaining as it looks and sounds.

Books finished since last Malarkey:

  • Tales of Accidental Genius by Simon Van Booy - Loved it even more, the second time!
  • Love Wins: The Lovers and Lawyers Who Fought the Landmark Case for Marriage Equality by Debbie Cenziper and Jim Obergefell - A very emotional read.

Currently reading:

  • The Nest by Cynthia D'Aprix Sweeney - To see what all the fuss is about. So far, I'm loving it. I'm a little less than halfway through. 
  • I've set aside Mongrels, for the moment, but haven't decided whether or not I'll return to it. And, I need to choose my next non-fiction read. Since I just finished Love Wins last night, I haven't even looked, yet, but I have plenty of non-fiction from which to choose.

Last week's posts:

In Other News: 

Huh, can't think of any other news. Surely there's something going on? Nope, can't think of a thing. It's all cats and yardwork and housework and reading till I can't keep my eyes open, lately. And, cleaning the garage. Ew. That is so not fun.

  1. Yard work and cleaning our things. Just not necessarily good things. ;) At least not in this heat.

    1. Yeah, they're nothing exciting but they are things . . . things that must be done. The heat is not helpful but I'm glad we had a productive day.

  2. It was so hot and muggy today... blah...

    1. I heard you were having a heat wave up there - about the same temps we're having and, yep, it's sultry out there. Not a fan of summer. I have more energy when it's cold (which, of course, doesn't last long, here).

  3. Hope this week gets more fun for you. :)

    1. It's not going to be an earth-shattering week. But, really, I'm okay with that. :)
