Monday Malarkey

Recent arrivals:

  • The Splendor before the Dark by Margaret George - from Berkley for review

Only one book, this week. It's the second in a series and I have not read the first, so I'm hoping I won't have any trouble picking up with Emperor Nero's life in the middle. 

Books finished since last Malarkey:

  • News of the World by Paulette Jiles (reread)
  • Hey, Kiddo by Jarrett J. Krosoczka
  • Seven Days of Us by Francesca Hornak

Another hodge-podge week. News of the World (link below) centers on WWII events, Hey, Kiddo is a graphic memoir, Seven Days of Us is a story about a family that's quarantined around Christmas and how being forced together alters their perceptions of each other. 

Currently reading:

  • The Travelling Cat Chronicles by Hiro Arikawa
  • D-Day: The WWII Invasion that Changed History by Deborah Hopkinson

So far, I'm really enjoying both of these, although I started both yesterday and haven't gotten far into either. I like the fact that D-Day (which is a Scholastic book and therefore aimed at youngsters) is packed with photos, charts, and maps.

In other news:

No other news. I watched Poldark and The Durrells in Corfu, but just about nothing else, this week.

  1. I gave up on Poldark. Just wasn’t doing it for me.

    1. I still love it but there have been times I played with my phone while watching it because it bored me a little (don't tell Husband).
