This week's arrivals:
- Nick and Tesla's High Voltage Danger Lab,
- Nick and Tesla's Robot Army Rampage, and
- Nick and Tesla's Secret Agent Gadget Battle, all by Bob Pflugfelder and Steve Hockensmith - from Quirk Books (one a Facebook win, the others tossed in because Eric at Quirk is awesome)
- Velva Jean Learns to Fly by Jennifer Niven - via Paperback Swap
- The Sister Season by Jennifer Scott - from NAL/Penguin for review - This one must have taken a slight detour. I was expecting it in December!
- In Paradise by Peter Matthiessen - from Riverhead via Shelf Awareness
- Replay by Ken Grimwood - Very kindly sent by my lovely friend Les (Lesley's review of Replay) - Thanks, Les!!!
Last week's posts:
- BOLD: A Cookbook of Big Flavors by Hoffman and Wise (gushy review w/tons of photos)
- Labor Day by Joyce Maynard - The F2F Report (About my F2F book group's latest discussion)
- Fiona Friday - Izzy Flashback (kitty photo)
Not a big posting week, obviously. I've had to return to twice-weekly physical therapy for my old neck injury and that's a bit time-consuming but hopefully I'll be back down to once-a-week appointments, soon.
Books finished last week (none have yet been reviewed):
- Nick and Tesla's High Voltage Danger Lab by Pflugfelder and Hockensmith
- Vampires in the Lemon Grove by Karen Russell
- The Gods of Heavenly Punishment by Jennifer Cody Epstein
This was a very diverse and quite interesting reading week. I've got two book tours, this week, but I hope to get caught up on reviews by next weekend. Crossing fingers and toes and such.
- A Star for Mrs. Blake by April Smith
- The Sunne in Splendour by Sharon Kay Penman (I will probably be reading this one for months, since the discussion group is reading it in sections so I may not mention it in my current reads every week)
I decided to set aside A Ragamuffin Gospel by Brennan Manning for now, but I left the bookmark in place so I may return to it at any time I feel the urge to finish it. When I stall and don't return to a book for several weeks, it's usually best to move on. It's a reread so I don't feel bad not finishing.
I'm planning to begin reading Viking Age from Sterling's Everyday Life series, this week. I didn't want to have two non-fiction titles going at once but I've been anxious to start this one -- so anxious I've taken off the slipcover and set it in a safe place. The book is just waiting for me to crack the cover.
