Sunday Sum-Up

Just a quick update today, since it’s a busy, busy day!

This is a bit later than normal because I spent most of my morning at the public library’s annual book sale. Today was the last day and sadly, the only day I could get to. While certain sections were fairly picked over, I did manage to find several books to pick up.

They’re so pretty!

So. This week, I managed to get sleep! And I could focus on things like reading! I finished four books this week, though I’d been working on them all for the past two weeks, so my weekly average is a whopping two books, but it still feels great to have finished them.

A Year in Provence by Peter Mayle
The Heretic’s Daughter by Kathleen Kent
The Alchemists of Loom by Elise Kova (audiobook)
I Am Not a Serial Killer by Dan Wells

I’m planning to do reviews for these, plus The Heretic’s Daughter was a Buddy Read with Danielle at Books, Vertigo & Tea. It wasn’t the easiest book to read, given that it’s about the Salem Witch Trials and goes into detail about how the prisoners were treated. We’re both working on coming up with questions for each other, so stay tuned for our responses.

I’m not sure what to read next. According to my monthly reading list, I should start The Thousand Autumns of Jacob de Zoet by David Mitchell, but I’m not really feeling it. So I’ll probably start something else. Perhaps one of the books I picked up at the book sale today, or maybe one of the many books that have been languishing on my shelves forever. I’d take suggestions, but then I’d probably end up with a bunch more books on my already ridiculously long To Be Read list!

  1. Reviewing the Heretic’s Daughter will be tough! But a worthwhile read. I love your book haul and that sleep has returned!!! Double yay there. I missed our annual library sale. It was downtown and not possible for me at the time.
