  1. I've been to the recently re-opened Mall.... So a *bumper* crop for me this week!


    The Silk Tree by Julian Stockwin
    The Second Sleep by Robert Harris
    The Border by Don Winslow
    The Warlow Experiment by Alix Nathan
    The Truants by Kate Weinberg


    The American Revolution - A Very Short Introduction by Robert J Allison
    Foreign Devils on the Silk Road - The Search for the Lost Treasures of Central Asia by Peter Hopkirk
    The Patient Assassin - A True Tale of Massacre, Revenge and the Raj by Anita Anand
    The Outlaw Ocean - Crime & Survival in the Last Untamed Frontier by Ian Urbina
    The Border - The Legacy of a Century of Anglo-Irish Politics by Diarmaid Ferriter

    1. I liked your lists better when you were stuck inside and the mall wasn't open, lol. I am very interested in all your non-fiction books, except for the one on the Revolutionary War. I am Rev War-ed out.

    2. The 'Rev-War' book will be part of a future 'Blitz Read' on the US in a vain attempt to understand WTF is going on over there! [lol] I'm not holding out any great hope on that point.... [grin] But it's always a good excuse to buy even more books.

    3. Blech, none of us know what is going on either, except we still have a bunch of morons refusing to wear masks, a joke of a president saying he won't accept the 2020 election results, and teams of unmarked officers/agents snatching protesters off the streets. And more teams are now just going to be sent into random cities that are "out of control". We are so screwed.

  2. I read Sadie last year and loved it, so I might need to pick up that other Courtney Summers book. I hope you enjoy all these!

    Aj @ Read All The Things!

    1. Sadie was such a masterpiece! I could not put it down so I only could read after my daughter went to bed because I had to have zero interruptions. It remains my fave but I have plowed through all of these already and loved them also. Summers is insanely good at writing strong female leads and she has become a must-read for me now. I definitely do not recommend reading them all back to back to back like I stupidly did, because the emoional hangover was real and exhausting, but DAMN she is a great writer.

    1. I have finished them all already and most were really great! No DNFs, which has not happened much lately!

    1. Thank you, I really did (I am done with them all already). Courtney Summers is perfection. And Rhodes is such a fantastic middle grade writer.


Thanks for visiting my little book nook. I love talking books so leave a comment and let's chat!
