Mini Update Sticky Post: August 9, 2018 Contentedly moving through Hilary Mantel’s Wolf Hall, inspired by the World Book Club on BBC, slowly, figuring the third volume will be available for me at the perfect time, at this rate. For fun, I am rereading and reading Madeleine L’Engle’s Austin Family series, as I only read the first two books when I was a girl. (I still love the grandfather’s house, the repurposed stable and all the bookshelves!) I have been reading Kim Thuy for #WITMonth and have Julie Demers lined up next. Mohsin Hamid’s Exit West is finally in my stack (I loved How to Be Filthy Rich in Rising Asia). And I’ve started N.K. Jemisin’s The Fifth Season, because her Inheritance trilogy was awesome.
Reading Mavis Gallant, one story at a time. (The End of the World started August 7th.
Exploring my grandmother’s copies of Mazo de la Roche’s Jalna stories. (I’m in the 13th volume now.)
How about you: what are you reading these days, and what are you looking forward to reading soon?
