Week In Review
January 13 – 19
Happy Sunday! It’s cold and snowy, perfect for staying inside and reading!
My friend Kathy is doing some 2020 pop culture resolutions, and I’m thinking of participating too! I might try and watch 12 foreign films and read 12 translated works this year – one each per month – so I’m going to spend some time today making a list of movies to watch and books to read as part of the challenge.
I received some eARCs from Edelweiss and Netgalley:
Chosen Ones, Veronica Roth;
Daisy Cooper’s Rules for Living, Tamsin Keily; and
Braised Pork, An Yu.
I also purchased some physical books:
The Tenant, Katrine Engberg;
Uncanny Valley, Anna Weiner;
Spook: Science Tackles the Afterlife, Mary Roach;
In Other Words, Jhumpa Lahiri; and
The Assistants, Camille Perri.
I also purchased The Better Liar by Tanen Jones for my Kobo.
And I picked up a few books from the library:
Spirit Hunters, Ellen Oh;
The Whisper Man, Alex North; and
Shelter, Jung Yun.
I finished five books this past week (bringing my total for the year so far to 14 books):
The Remaking, Clay McLeod Chapman;
Ghost Wall, Sarah Moss; and
The Whisper Man, Alex North.
Time for more coffee and more books! Happy Sunday!
