This Week’s Blog Posts:
Thanks to everyone who came over to share their experiences with ’80s and ’90s teen fiction after reading my review of Paperback Crush by Gabrielle Moss. It was fun to read what your favorite books and series were, and what you did read if you missed the craze altogether!
We’re almost done with #ReadingValdemar in 2019, and Jackie and I discussed Owlsight by Mercedes Lackey and Larry Dixon on Wednesday.
Lastly, a new month is definitely here! On Friday I put up my TBR for December. Thanks to Anne @ I’ve Read This and her review of White Elephant, this new novel on my list is getting some holiday attention.
Next Week’s Blog Posts:
Next week, I’ll post the last reviews of not one, but two series. On Monday, check out my review of Owlknight by Mercedes Lackey and Larry Dixon, which is the last book of #ReadingValdemar in 2019.
On Wednesday, I’ll post a review of Tangled Up in Blue, the last book in Joan D. Vinge’s award-winning The Snow Queen Cycle.
Then, a big pivot on Friday, when you can read my review of the newly-published memoir Dear Girls by comedian Ali Wong.
Book I’m Reading Aloud to My Spouse:
We finished French Exit by Patrick DeWitt, and while we both loved the book overall, we were disappointed in the ending. If you’re interested, I shared my thoughts here.
We’ve also let the story A Christmas Carol take over our lives this past week. We saw a play of this story, but it’s a play within a play. The script is about a radio station putting on a radio play, and it’s a play you really watch. To get even more Inception on you, our local NPR radio station recorded the radio-play play to play on the radio on Christmas eve. Then, the spouse and I watched the excellently Disney version starring the voice Jim Carrey — by far my favorite film of Dickens’s story. We’re also reading A Christmas Carol before bed. We just paused with the Cratchit family eating their goose.
