Thanks, as always to Sam @ Taking on a World of Words and this wonderful WWW post to keep me semi-organized. If you want to join me, just answer the three questions below about how your reading is going this week and leave a link to your post in the comments for others to admire. Don’t forgt to check all the other participants. It is the #1 way I keep my TBR overflowing!
WHAT AM I CURRENTLY READING?
I am half way through both of these adorable books! Aggie Morton is a middle grade mystery series featuring 12 year old Agatha and her new friend Hector. This book reminds me of Flavia de Luce except, instead of an obsession with chemistry, Aggie is mesmerized by death. Her macabre fascination leads her to be overly involved in the investigation of a murder along with her new Belgium friend Hector. It is super cute.
I started The Bookshop of Second Chances by Jackie Fraser a few weeks ago. It is a cute story of a recently separated woman moving from England to Scotland when she inherits a home from a distant Uncle. There is a romance that is building (poorly) that isn’t working for me. Still, I want to finish the story. I have to find out what happens to the books she inherited!
WHAT DID I RECENTLY FINISH READING?
It was a beautiful weekend and I spent nearly the entire time reading. I read in three different parks!
I finished the epic To Sleep in a Sea of Stars by Christopher Paolini. The book club reviews on this were: generally good, few hundred pages could have been cut, and the tried and true ragtag group was the best part.
I also finished The Beast’s Heart by Life Shallcross. This is a retelling of Beauty and the Beast from the Beast’s point of view. I really enjoyed that the book cuts out Gaston completely while also giving Belle two sisters. The sisters featured prominently in the Beasts awakening but the book didn’t manage to capture me completely. It too was a little repetitive. But, if you are seeking a book that gives the Beast a completely pass on the morality of what he does, this one is for you!
Make it Stick, The Science of Successful Learning is the last book I finished this weekend. Oh, I see myself being really obnoxious recommending this one. If you love learning and hate that you can’t remember things, this book is for you.
WHAT WILL I READ NEXT?
I have no idea!
Tell me, please! What’s on your WWW?
