My Wednesday word was “sere” and I wasn’t the only one surprised that I didn’t know what looks like such a short and simple word: Wondrous Words Wednesday.
Our book club had a great discussion on Thursday, Book Review: At the Dark End of the Street by Danielle L. McGuire.
Yesterday, I joined Trish’s Pin It and Do It challenge, Pin It and Do It: joining a Pinteresting Challenge.
I finished Quatrain by Sharon Shinn. I enjoyed all four novellas. They were set in four different worlds that Shinn has created in her fantasy novels so three of them were familiar to me. Now I want to read the book that established the fourth one: Heart of Gold. This is the description of the world from the Sharon Shinn’s website: “Two races—the matriarchal indigo and the patriarchal gulden—uneasily co-exist in a single shared metropolis.”
I’m still reading Do I Look Fat in This? by Rhonda Britten, but I’m almost done.
I started More than a Mistress by Mary Balogh. It’s an older one of her novels and I may have read it before, but I can’t be sure yet. Oh well, it won’t be the first time that I accidentally reread a novel. In fact, I won’t be the first time with this author!
My next lunch-time reading book will be a review book I received and hope to write up for Weekend Cooking on Saturday: The Fire Island Cookbook by Mike DeSimone and Jeff Jenssen. I really like the concept of this book — we’ll have to see if I like the recipes as well.
For evening reading, my next book will be our next book club selection, Color Me English by Caryl Phillips. I wouldn’t normally be reading it so soon before our book club meeting, but there are only three copies available at local libraries so I will borrow it now and have it back before other people want to start reading for book club.
It’s Monday! What Are Your Reading? is a weekly meme hosted by Sheila of Book Journey. Be sure to check out her post today to see her selections and the list of links to all the other participating bloggers.
