The last update on what I have read, am reading, and am going to read was done in a WWW Wednesday on September 26th, a month ago, yesterday. Before that, way back on September 2nd, was my last Sunday (Evening) Post. I realized tonight it had been too long since I had reported in on my ongoing reading efforts and accomplishments. This is an effort to do just that.
Back on September 2nd, I reported that I was reading Amercanah by Ngozi Adichie and enjoying it. I was reading it on my laptop and often forgot to pick it up again. The result? I am still reading it, but I am continuing to enjoy both the story and the characterization of this fine author. I hope to finish it by the end of this week. At that time, I was reading a police procedural, crime-mystery, The Mercy of the Tides by Keith Rosson, a genre I hadn’t read in a long time. I finally gave up on it and passed it along via my Little Free Library.
Since then I have finished: The Rosie Result, the ending book in the Don Tillman Trilogy (reviewed on PWR recently); Ink and Bone, a book about books by Rachel Caine; The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt, a book chosen by my book and film book club, read then viewed, and discussed over lunch (reviewed on PWR recently); Rise and Shine by Anna Quindlen (reviewed); Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy Onassis: The Untold Story (reviewed); and Shadow of the Wind by Zafon, the last book in my Alphabet Soup Challenge (to be posted at a later date)
When I checked the September 26th report at WWW Wednesdays and added those books I had finished recently, I came up with the following: The Girl Who Fell From the Sky (not reviewed yet) by Heidi W. Durrow; AHA by Kyle Idleman; Sea Scope; The Lost Landscape: A Writer’s Coming of Age by Joyce Carol Oates (reviewed on my Literacy blog); Unplug by Suzie Yalof Schwartz (not reviewed yet); The Haunted Bookstore by Christopher Morely; and A Year of Wednesdays, which completed my Alphabet Soup Challenge.
As of today, Sunday, September 27th, I am still continuing to read: The Stone Sky, by N.K. Jemisin (finally! the third book in The Broken Earth series); Goodnight June by Sarah Jio; My Life with Bob by Pamela Paul, The Essential Rumi by Coleman Barks; and I am listening to Parnassus on Wheels by Christopher Morely.
Obviously, I need to finish the books I have started, but I am looking forward to a book that arrived this weekend: The Crossroads of Should and Must.
The weather here on the Texas Gulf Coast is finally cooler and seems more like fall. Today’s high was only in the low 70s, and I was able to wear a fall sweater-ish top to church. I have been eating and drinking pumpkin-spice flavors since late September, but finally, it feels “right.” I hope your week ahead brings time and weather conducive to much reading!
