Last weekend was a great reading weekend for me. After finishing up A Circle of Wives by Alice LaPlante Friday night I needed to let it simmer in my head a bit before starting another novel.
Last Saturday I read three graphic novels and made a dent in the stack of books I've got out from the library. I read:
Hawkeye Vol. 2: Little Hits by Matt Fraction – a fun not quite a superhero series
Sweet Tooth Vol. 1: Out of the Woods by Jeff Lemire – this is the first in a new series for me. Post apocalyptic with half human, half animal children and after the first one I went to the library this week and picked up the second
and Pride of Baghdad by Brian K. Vaughan – I’ve had several people encouraging me to read this one for a while. Based on the true story of the animals of the Baghdad zoo roaming free after the city was bombed it’s a fascinating story and beautifully illustrated
Sunday was road trip day. I have a couple of friends who live north of Seattle and we periodically meet up at a pub in Olympia that's halfway between and me and the one who lives farthest north. That meant 5 hours of audio book time for me on the road.
I finished listening to The Wonderful Wizard of Oz narrated by Anne Hathaway and my recommendation is stick to the printed format.
I started listening to Cocaine Blues by Kerry Greenwood narrated by Stephanie Daniel. This is the first in the Phryne Fisher series and I'm enjoying both the main character and the 1920's Australia setting.
I started reading The Accident by Chris Pavone. I really enjoyed his first book The Expats and this one is extremely good so far.
Aside from reading, here are a few random photos from my phone from this week:
The trees are blooming and my allergies are raging but it's still pretty
I love the detail on this building. Even though its several floors up and not easy to see from street level it's beautiful.
Hope you’re having a great weekend!
