Monday Malarkey

Recent arrivals:

  • The Threat: How the FBI Protects America in the Age of Terror and Trump by Andrew G. McCabe - purchased

Yep, just one book. S'okay. I may have a few other books, here or there. 

Books finished since last Malarkey:

  • Devil's Daughter by Lisa Kleypas
  • The Threat by Andrew G. McCabe

Oh, yeah, you bet I dived right into The Threat. And, it is not only a good book -- well-written, engrossing -- it's also an important one. It'll probably scare the hell out of you but maybe we need that. It also clarifies some recent stories that needed to be explained from the FBI side because we don't hear all that we need to know. 

Currently reading:

  • Learning to See by Elise Hooper
  • The Speech by Gary Younge

Posts since last Malarkey:

I had an unusually busy week, last week, with a lot of driving hither and yon to various appointments and events, so it was not a big blogging week. I've already pre-posted reviews for this week, though, and a Fiona Friday pic. Go, me. 

In other news:

Yesterday, I started watching a Hallmark movie that takes place in Fiji but found the storyline a little boring and the fact that the heroine's face didn't move distracting (clearly, she'd had some botox or a facelift), so I ditched it and moved on to Chance at Romance, the story of a chef who has had a string of unsuccessful blind dates. She sees a photography exhibit and writes an email to the photographer, starting a nice email conversation, but she is unaware that her emails are being answered by his son. When the son invites her for a visit and then sends her a train ticket, she shows up at their house only to find that the actual photographer has no idea who she is.

It's a cute movie. Again, not thrilled with the heroine, who kept giving the hero dreamy looks. But, the actor who played the hero was very natural and awfully nice to look at. And, I liked the interaction between the heroine, Samantha, and the hero's son.

That's about it for my week. How was yours?
