I actually spent most of the afternoon at Little Ceasar’s Pizza, since the library has practically no seating for reading, and the park was too wet on account of the steady rain we were having all morning. But, I finished Unsaid, by Neil Abramson, and I earlier this week I finished Kingdom of the Golden Dragon, by Isabel Allende. In fact I turned in 5 books today, which is good because I think I checked out 5 more.
I got drawn in first by a 2010 Connie Willis book. Connie Willis is a Colorado author, from Parker, Colorado, I think. She writes books that are the sort of scifi/fantasy/literature Ray Bradbury wrote, imaginative and unique and very well-crafted. The novel I have added to my library stack is called Blackout. It is a time travel story, which is great because the book I read yesterday (cover to cover in one day, a feat I rarely accomplish with 500+pg books anymore) was The Time Traveler’s Wife, by Audrey Niffenegger.
I also checked out a few books from the authors starting with A section of adult fiction- – Tortuga, by Rudolfo Anaya – Collision, by Jeff Abbott – Say You’re One of Them, by Uwem Akpan – Flight, by Sherman Alexie
And, I was seduced into checking out one more that was lurking near the self-checkout machines on a new-books display, the most recent Clive Cussler novel, The Eye of Heaven.
So, I have lots to look forward to in this next week bookwise. I’ll be finishing reading Written in Stone, by Ellery Adams, a murder mystery involving the Lumbee, a Native American tribe from the North Carolina area. Next on my list will be Gerald’s Game, by Jane A. Adams, which at ~200pgs will be a fast read. And then..?
Well, I figure I’ll need a break from my Read My Library project, so I may read Night Circus. Or a Clive Cussler book. Or a non-library book. Or… There are so many options to choose from!
What is on your “to-be-read” list for this coming week? What are you currently reading? Is it good?
