I've just now finished reading the final 10 of last week's Sunday Salon. I have found it impossible to actually read all the posts in one afternoon anymore, so I've taken to reading 5 or day at various points throughout each weekday. I'm tempted to give up on the Salon because of the sheer number of posts, but I get such good ideas and read such interesting posts that I just can't.
I'm having an extraordinarily slow reading week, as I've been crawling along with Mary McGarry Morris's Songs in Ordinary Times. I probably should have stopped reading it a week ago because I don't particularly like the book, but I'm to the point where I have to find out what happens to the characters. I've invested too much time to quit.
This week I reviewed The Five People You Meet in Heaven. Blah.
Here's what I've added the past few weeks to my TBR list, gleaned mostly from Saloners:
Monique and the Mango Rains by Kris Holloway (Reviewed at The Bluestocking Society)
What Was Lost by Catherine O'Flynn (Reviewed at Big A, Little A)
Bridge of Sighs by Richard Russo (Reviewed at Bookstack)
The Girls by Lori Lansens (Reviewed on Reading, Writing, and Retirement)
Shattered Dreams: My Life as a Polygamist's Wife by Irene Spencer (Reviewed at Maw Books)
Who Killed My Daughter by Lois Duncan (Reviewed at Nonfiction Lover)
I've got The Cellist of Sarajevo by Steven Galloway waiting in my library bag to read as soon as I finish the interminable Songs of Ordinary People.
And that's what's happening this week at SmallWorld Reads! If you'd like to take part in The Sunday Salon, you can sign up here.
