Recent arrivals (top to bottom):
- The Reactive by Masande Ntshanga and
- The Woman Next Door by Yewande Omotoso - both purchased. It's true that Amazon snagged me during Prime Week (but I only bought these two books, nothing else)
- The Salt Line by Holly Goddard Jones - for review from Putnam (Penguin Random House)
Books finished since last Malarkey:
- The Hidden Light of Northern Fires by Daren Wang
I'm also on the verge of finishing How to Stop Time by Matt Haig, but even with a mere 20 pages to go, I can't count it as finished till I'm done because I'm weird that way.
Posts since last Malarkey:
- Just Fly Away by Andrew McCarthy (YA book review)
- The Hidden Light of Northern Fires by Daren Wang (book review)
- Fiona Friday - Izzy Bunny (cat photo)
- How to Stop Time by Matt Haig
- The Punch Escrow by Tal M. Klein
Both of the books I'm reading are utterly captivating but I am focusing on How to Stop Time (about a man who ages slowly and has been alive 450 years) and I'll return to The Punch Escrow (futuristic sci-fi), after I finish -- tonight, that is. How to Stop Time got priority because it's one of my most anticipated books of the year and it is every bit as magical as I hoped it would be. But, The Punch Escrow is loads of fun, too, so I'm excited that I'll be getting back to it, tonight. I'll review both before I leave for my summer break. If I can fit everything in (I also want to read and review Brave Deeds by David Abrams before I go), I plan to shut down by Friday. If not, I'll extend my stay a bit till I'm done.
In other news:
It's getting oppressively hot and humid, here, the time of year that you begin to feel trapped indoors because it's dangerous outside (much like being trapped indoors by the snow to avoid frostbite, for those of you in colder climates). I'm looking forward to autumn. Hope those of you in reasonable climates are enjoying your weather. I would very much like to be in Alaska, right about now. :)
