Well, I'm finally starting to finish the books I've been working on for weeks. Sarah Dunant's excellent Blood and Beauty is off the nightstand and ripe for review; I am still reading, and will be for a while, The Art of Joy, but I finished my audiobook, How the Irish Saved Civilization, so I'm looking for another one. If you know of a good nonfiction audio about English history, please tell me in the comments! I want to emphasize that I'm looking for nonfiction, so please save your historical fiction favorites for another day and thanks!
But on to the new books!
I got The Story of a New Name, by Elena Ferrante, in the mail and I'm super excited about it. It's another chunkster and I'll be with it for a while but that OK because I love her stuff. This is the follow up to last year's My Brilliant Friend, about a pair of girls growing up together in early-20th-century Naples. I love her books.
I'm also finally starting Margaret Atwood's MaddAddam. I've had it for a while but I wanted to wait to closer to her event in Cambridge to read it. September 19- be there or be square!
That's more than enough to keep me busy for now. What are you reading today? See more at BookJourney.wordpress.com.
