It’s another quiet week. I’ve spent the week clearing off my desk and organizing my notes for book 3 of the Broken Fate series, as well as some other books I want to work on. When I’m deep in a book, I jot stuff down on any scrap of paper that’s handy and then it gets buried under everything else on my desk. Now that I’ve finished book 2, I’ve been slowly excavating my desk and placing all those scraps into proper folders. This organization won’t last, but it’s nice while it does. I’ve also been reading a bit more, which is nice. I’ve missed my books!
- The Last Star, by Rick Yancey. This is the final book in the 5th Wave YA sci-fi trilogy.The first two books were good, as I recall, but I think I’m going to have to go back and reread at least the second one (The Infinite Sea) because I have no idea what was going on. It’s been too long since I read that book that my fried brain can’t remember who was who. And I think there was a major plot twist that I’ve now forgotten… Were the aliens really the good guys?
- The Weekenders, by Mary Kay Andrews. I enjoy Andrews’ easy-breezy summer reads. My favorites are still her early ones that took place in Savannah, GA and featured antique picker Weezie, but almost all of her other books have been good. They’re usually about a southern woman wronged by a bad man and how the woman comes into her own by the end of the book (and sticks it to the man). They’re formulaic, but usually funny. Since this one takes place in NC, I’m looking forward to it.
