Monday Malarkey

I decided I was sick of the usual places I pose books, so today I went for a change of scenery and discovered I need to do a deep clean pretty much everywhere in my house. At least this chair looked nice and tidy.

Recent arrivals (top to bottom):

  • The Punch Escrow by Tal M. Klein - from Inkshares for review
  • How to Stop Time by Matt Haig - purchased
  • Killers of the Flower Moon by David Grann - purchased
  • The Underground River by Martha Conway - from Touchstone for review

I'm ridiculously excited to finally have a copy of How to Stop Time. It feels like I've been waiting for it forever. There are just some authors who make you feel that way; waiting for the next release is eternity.

Books finished since last Malarkey:

  • Exit, Pursued by a Bear by E. K. Johnston
  • Just Fly Away by Andrew McCarthy
  • More Was Lost by Eleanor Perényi

Posts since last Malarkey:

Yay, a good reviewing week! The "mini reviews" turned out longer than intended but that's fine. Whatever works, right? 

Currently reading:

  • The Hidden Light of Northern Fires by Daren Wang 

I'm just reading the one book, right now, although I started another and I'm not sure if it's going to stick. Even if it does, it'll have to wait. The Hidden Light of Northern Fires sucked me in hard. I love that! 

In other news:

I wanted to watch Independence Day on the 4th of July but it turns out Kiddo pilfered it. So, we went through our old DVD collection. I was determined to find something equally adventurous and settled on the original Hornblower series. We don't tend to binge watch but we'll be watching an episode, now and then, for a while. Such a fun series!

  1. I think there's something to this deep cleaning a few times a year but I'll never get on board. I'm far to busy keeping up the regular cleaning and yard work. How do people find time to deep clean too? Aw well. Looks like some fun books came in.

    1. You have a lot on your plate with the rental houses, Jenny. As to yard work . . . I'm looking to hire someone. We can't keep up with our yard. So many weeds and vines!!! Yes, seriously some very fun reading ahead. I'm dying to read the Matt Haig but I have to finish the Civil War book, first.
