It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is hosted by Kathryn at Book Date. Sunday Post is hosted by Kimberly at Caffeinated Book Reviewer.
Well, it's been a rough couple of weeks. Just as I pressed the "Publish" button on my last Sunday/Monday post, my mom called to let me know that one of my grandmothers had passed away. Of course I'm upset and miss her, but when I step back to look at it, we were blessed to have her so long and she was blessed with a gentle passing. She was almost 94, she still lived at home with one of my aunts to help her, she hadn't been sick, and she just laid down for a nap and never woke up. She was a sweet, quiet woman who was full of grace and we'll all miss her terribly.
I did have several things scheduled to post, so it hasn't quite been a wasteland around here.
Posted:Review: Shotgun Lovesongs by Nickolas Butler, read by Ari Fliakos, Maggie Hoffman, Scott Shepherd, Scott Sowers, and Gary Wilmes--4.5 Stars
Review: Journey to the Center of the Earth by Jules Verne, translated by Frederick Amadeus Malleson--3 Stars
River Marked by Patricia Briggs
The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater
Currently Reading:Someplace to be Flying by Charles de Lint--This is a re-read for the umpteenth time of one of my favorite books. I'm slowly (re)reading all of the books set in this fictional world in order. They aren't necessarily a series but I am interested to see how they flow together. I originally read them as I could get my hands on them at the library and/or bookstore.
In Cold Blood by Truman Capote
The Calligrapher's Daughter by Eugenia Kim, read by Jane McDowell
Lady of Devices by Shelley Adina--This is my read-at-the-gym book, so it will take me a while to get through it.
Up Next:I might finish The Calligrapher's Daughter soon. If I do, I'll be in the mood for something fun like I Am Half-Sick of Shadows by Alan Bradley or The Blood of Olympus by Rick Riordan.
