Welcome to my weekly update for August 15, 2022! It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is hosted by Sheila at Book Journey.
Review of The Dreaming Place by Charles de Lint
Review of The Lost City of Z by David Grann, read by Mark Deakins
Character Connection featuring Teddy Daniels from Shutter Island by Dennis Lehane
Review of How I Live Now by Meg Rosoff
Sunday Salon post about a completed challenge and some recent acquisitions
The Invisible Ring by Anne Bishop

Bone: Out from Boneville by Jeff Smith
The Betrayal of the Blood Lily by Lauren Willig
The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie by Alan Bradley, read by Jayne Entwistle
The Richest Man in Babylon by George S. Clason (A co-worker insisted I read this. I’m not really interested but I didn’t know how to say no. At least it’s very short.)
The Innocents Abroad by Mark Twain–I think I’ll bump this up to my daytime book after I finish Blood Lily. Maybe my before-bed sense of humor is just not in the right place to enjoy this. If that doesn’t work, this is going on the DNF list.
Between Blood Lily and Innocents, I’ve probably got next week covered. If I do happen to finish both, I’ll move on to Blankets by Craig Thompson
Thank you for all the well-wishes for my cousin last week. I understand the surgery went well. He is having more lab work done today to see how things stand now.
What are you reading this week?
