Recent arrivals (top to bottom):
- Hope in the Dark by Rebecca Solnit (purchased)
- A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman (purchased)
- Three Days in January by Bret Baier (from HarperCollins for review)
- March graphic novel trilogy by Lewis, Aydin, and Powell (purchased)
And, because this list is 75% purchases, I've decided I need to attempt a buying ban. I say "attempt" because I'm usually an abject failure at not buying books, but I think it's time to take a break from making book purchases till I've caught up on reading some of what I've already bought, recently.
Books finished since last Malarkey:
- The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah
Just the one book. After finishing The Nightingale, I got it into my head that I should focus on finishing The Wars of the Roosevelts. I'm almost done but didn't feel like reading, last night. Oh, well. Soon.
- The Wars of the Roosevelts by William J. Mann
I'm focusing on finishing the one book and have set all the others aside, temporarily. They'll show up on next week's Monday Malarkey list in some fashion.
Last week's posts:
- Leopard at the Door by Jennifer McVeigh (book review)
- The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah - Review and F2F Report
- Fiona Friday (cat photo)
- Faithful by Alice Hoffman (book review)
In other news:
There's not much other news, apart from the fact that I finally found a book I've been missing for 2 or 3 months: Mister Monkey by Francine Prose. It was on a shelf that I don't normally use for books in our guest room. I have no idea what possessed me to put that and 3 other books on a shelf that's normally reserved for youngest son's possessions but I'm happy to have finally located the book and will stick it on my February stack.
