Happy Memorial Day! A busy week, a holiday weekend. The year is flying by. I finished Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel. The post-apocalyptic tale begins with the death, on stage, of a Shakespearian actor in the role of King Lear. Then comes the world-wide pandemic… Lots of POV and flashbacks, but I enjoyed it. I then read Here, There Be Dragons by James A. Owen, the first volume of a fantasy set trilogy. While I enjoyed the story and characters, it just didn’t quite grab my imagination as I had hoped it would. I probably won’t read the others. Also read was A Nun In The Closet by Dorothy Gillian, author of the Mrs. Pollifax books. All the above came from the library.
Up next? I’m thinking of reading The Cards on the Table by Agatha Christe. I’ve been in the mood for one of her books.
Barbara finished The Devil’s Star by Jo Nesbø and liked it very much. She’s now reading A Cold and Broken Hallelujah by Tyler Dilts which she bought at LCC after hearing him on a panel. After that, no idea.
Have you read these books or authors? What are you reading?
