Recent arrivals: Top to bottom (from above photo) and then one below:
- Saving Tarboo Creek by Scott Freeman, with illustrations by Susan Leopold Freeman - from Timber Press for review (and totally up my alley!)
- Murder on the Orient Express by Agatha Christie - Movie tie-in version from William Morrow for review
- The Saboteur by Paul Kix from Harper for review
- Force of Nature by Jane Harper - from Flatiron Books for review, and this one came packed inside a drawstring bag with a flashlight, some trail mix, and a water bottle. How fun is that?! I very seldom get any extra promotional items with books, so it felt like opening a birthday gift.
Books finished since last Malarkey:
- The Goddess of Mtwara and Other Stories
- Bonaparte Falls Apart by Margery Cuyler and Will Terry
- Grace Hopper: Queen of Computer Code by L. Wallmark and K. Wu
- The Cottingley Secret by Hazel Gaynor
This past week was a fun reading week. I finally finished The Goddess of Mtwara and Other Stories, a book of prize-winning stories by African writers. Bonaparte Falls Apart just happened to arrive in the midst of Children's Week, so I read and reviewed it immediately. And, Grace Hopper: Queen of Computer Code is the book I've been walking past for months, even though it was sitting in plain sight on our piano bench. The Cottingley Secret took me several days to finish, even though it flows well and is easy to read at pace, because I kept getting started with my reading around the time I should have been turning out the light. I need to get un-addicted to Twitter.
I loved everything. And, of course, I got to reread all the books I reviewed, last week, because I always read the children's picture books at least two times before reviewing.

Huh. Can't think of any other news. The weather's nice. *shrugs*
