New Arrivals: two things this week:
Dare Me by Megan Abbott [Little, Brown 2012 hardcover, new] – mystery – another of Abbott’s novels of youth, angst, crime. I bought this based on the last book by her I read, The End of Everything. I have a couple of her earlier books on the shelf, but there is so much here to read I haven’t gotten to them yet.
The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie by Alan Bradley [Bantam Books 2010 trade paperback, new] – mystery – the first in the Flavia de Luce series. This has been out for some time and gotten almost nothing but raves, so I finally decided to buy it. I’ve already read and enjoyed it. Review soon.

Current Reading: as stated above, I received and read The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie this week. I really enjoyed it, the writing, character(s), everything. Not sure what I’ll start next, the TBR has gotten a little overbalanced lately.Taking time away from reading is watching the Olympics, though so far there has been a paucity of the things I enjoy most (swimming, diving, gymnastics, and an abundance of things I don’t (boxing, soccer (lots and lots of it), weight lifting, shooting). Still, many hours spent in front of the tube, instead of reading.
