This library trek was done without children – not even waiting out in the car with daddy for me to hurry up and come back so we can go do other things with our weekend. Instead I was able to browse a bit, and then pick up my holds in a leisurely fashion. It was so nice.
My Paris Kitchen: Recipes and Stories by David Lebovitz
Love cookbooks that combine lots of stories, and love Lebovitz’s previous books, so I’m pretty confident that I’m going to love this one. Plus, Paris.
Blood Royal: A True Tale of Crime and Detection in Medieval Paris by Eric Jager
My Paris-themed reading kick continues.
The Surprising Secrets of Highly Happy Marriages: The Little Things That Make a Big Difference by Shaunti Feldhahn
I’ve read some of her previous books and enjoyed them, and am curious to see what this one says. I mean, who doesn’t want a highly happy marriage?
Crossing to Safety by Wallace Stegner
Book club’s June pick, and me forgetting to ask for it earlier means I’m running out of time to get the book finished before the meeting. Also, I keep trying to call the author “William” instead of “Wallace.” Perhaps admitting that will help me stop doing that, because I really do know what his name is.
The Divorce Papers: A Novel by Susan Rieger
I’m not generally much of a fan of romantic comedies, but my completely infatuation with epistolary novels is stronger than a minor thing like genre aversion.
Where Monsters Dwell by Jorgen Brekke
It’s quite possible I won’t actually read this one, or at least finish it. Reviews have me concerned that it’ll be too gruesome for me, but the glowing remarks about how well done the historical aspects of it are have me cautiously interested in trying it.
The Silver Crown
I don’t remember how this one ended up on my list, but the author won a Newbery for another book, so surely that bodes well for this one. Well, that and that it’s still in print decades later.
