Wonderful weather, gardening, various outings have kept us busy, but I’ve taken time for Summer reading.
How the light Gets In by Louise Penny [Minotaur Books 2013 hardcover, new] – mystery novel. Just published and fighting it out for top spot on the Read Next pile is this novel by a very favorite author. I’ve been eagerly awaiting this since I finished the last page of the preceding novel, The Beautiful Mystery, which ended in what seemed to be a cliffhanger. That was a year ago. The wait is finally over.
I finished three more of Anne McCaffrey’s Pern books, the Dragonsinger trilogy (Dragonsinger, Dragonsong and Dragondrums). Also read were Oregon Bound, the slightly fictionalized account, based on diaries, of a family traveling the Oregon Trail in 1852, and House of Secrets, a YA fantasy.
I’m now reading the new Louise Penny novel shown here, have a Mike Shayne novel started, a Sue Grafton partly read, a Perry Mason half done and a couple of other things that have found their way into my “soonest” pile. I’m about halfway through the book of the Algys Budrys review columns from Galaxy magazine. That’s not to mention the things I’ve been gnawing away at all summer, some of them all year, it seems.
So, what did YOU get, new, used or from the library, and
what have you been reading?
