- The Broken Girls by Simone St. James - from Berkley Books for review
- I Am the Boss of this Chair by Carolyn Crimi and Marisa Morea - from Sterling Children's Books for review
Cat book! Spooky book! Much fun ahead.
Books finished since last week's Tuesday Twaddle:
- I Am the Boss of this Chair by Crimi and Morea
- The Statue and the Fury by Jim Dees
I hadn't finished The Statue and the Fury at the time of this week's F2F discussion but it was a thunderstorm that kept me from driving the 30 miles to my meeting, this week, not worry about spoilers (it's not a book that can be spoiled). So bummed! I've missed three meetings in a row, now. Fingers crossed that next month's meeting day is a sunny, migraine-free day.
I sat down to read I Am the Boss of this Chair the moment it arrived, of course -- aloud, to the cats. I'm always excited to find any children's books centered on cats and I Am the Boss is loads of fun. It's almost identical to the story of Isabel's arrival and how it upended Fiona's routine.
- Don Quixote by Cervantes
- Our Native Bees by Paige Embry
I didn't read a single page of Don Quixote until yesterday. But, then I finally got in my daily quota. Since I'm just buddy reading with two other people and they were well behind me, we've inserted yet another catch-up week but hopefully it will be the last. Just knowing there are other people reading with me has successfully kept me from giving up when I didn't get around to reading and had to flip back to refresh my memory. Buddy reading is definitely motivating.
Last week's posts:
- January Reads in Review, 2018 (brief descriptions of everything I read + a photo and links to full reviews)
- Two DNFs, why I stopped reading them, and whether or not I'll give them a second chance
- Fiona Friday - Clearly, there's a story here. (cat photo)
No book reviews, for once! I've been thinking I need to branch out a little, now and then, and do some different posts but I seem to be perpetually behind on book reviews. Still, I may try to do an essay about book thoughts, now and then, just for a change of pace. Don't want to be boring.
In other news:
Just TV news . . . I watched the season finale of Victoria, last night, and enjoyed it. Have I mentioned that the voice of Don Quixote in my head is that of the actor playing Ernst in Victoria (David Oakes)? I love his voice. He'd make an excellent audio book narrator, in my humble opinion. I thought it was nice that the Duchess of Buccleuch finally seemed to play a reasonable role in the happenings at the palace. Diana Rigg has seemed a bit wasted in that part because so little happened with her, till the final episode. I don't recall watching any other TV, last week, apart from the movie Kinky Boots when Huzzybuns and I were having a lazy evening. Hopefully, I'll get back to Dr. Who, this week. Have you watched anything terrific, lately?
