I’ve been a bit disconnected from the blogosphere this past week for a couple of reasons. For one, I’m disappointed in a book that I’d been really anticipating: The Bees. After one week of reading, I’ve only made it to page 77. I won the ARC in a Goodreads giveaway, and every time I think about setting it aside in favor of something else, I feel guilty. And it’s discouraged me from reading anything else. Do you ever get that feeling? But I’m determined to pick up another book this weekend, and I hope to get my reading groove back.
My other problem this week is that my air conditioning system broke on Monday. Terrible timing, since it’s been close to 90 degrees here all week. I’ve already sunk a lot of money into this system, repairing various things over the last couple of years, starting when it was just over 5 years old – just out of warranty. But now, the latest problem is just too expensive to justify replacing that one part, so I’m going for a whole new AC/furnace system. In the meantime, I’ve been grouchy, sweating, and dealing with a series of repairmen all week as I got estimates. I finally signed a contract with one of them last night to get it installed next Wednesday, and he left two portable AC units that have been helping to keep the temperature inside below 80. And I finally got a good night’s sleep last night!
OK, was that enough complaining for you? Let’s get to what you came here for – the books!
Deadly Little Sins by Kara Taylor: This is the final book in the excellent Prep School Confidential trilogy. If you haven’t read these books, you’re missing out! You can check out my reviews of the first two books here.
The Art of Lainey by Paula Stokes
The New Hunger by Isaac Marion: This is a prequel novella to Warm Bodies, a book that I loved. I’ve been meaning to purchase this ever since I finished Warm Bodies, and I finally got around to it.
The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho
