BTT – Queue

What are you reading now?

Would you recommend it?

And what’s next?

Right now, I am (unusually for me) being a book polygamist. I am:

34% through The Broken Teaglass by Emily Arsenault (I read In Search of the Rose Notes by her earlier in the year) – this is rather good, a solid 7/10 sort of book but with added points for being set in a dictionary company and therefore full of lexicographical delight.

On p26 of The Partly Cloudy Patriot  by Sarah Vowell, which is wonderful but I feel I should be listening to it instead, which is why I haven’t read any further. It won’t be a re-read so why spend time reading when I want to listen, but I don’t have the audiobook and my library doesn’t have it either and I doubt it will come up on Bookmooch… oh the dilemmas.

On p66 of Fool Moon by Jim Butcher; this is the second of the Harry Dresden files and I feel much the same as I did about the first one. There’s a fun plot in there, but the writing is a bit too jovial for me and I’m not wrapped in the characters. The Physicist will never forgive me if I don’t read them though, so…

On p37 of Crocodile on the Sandbank by Elizabeth Peters – this is quite fun, Victorian ladies go adventuring in Egypt. I feel like I should be sitting down for more than ten minutes at a time to read it though, so it’s not a great commute read.

Oh and on audio, I’m 62% through Stef Penney’s The Tenderness of Wolves which is excellent although a little slow.

Coming up next – I need to get through a few more of my review copies – far too many have piled up around here, particularly on NetGalley!

    I haven’t heard of any of those books! I do like the sound of the Crocodile one though.

    “Crocodile on the Sandbank” by Elizabeth Peters sounds really interesting. I will be looking forward to your review of it.

    Like Verity, I have never heard of any of these books 🙂

      Ironically, I got through quite a lot more of the Crocodile on various journeys today and it is rewarding me although the characters are not quite settled, somehow…

    Also I have discovered that Crocodile on the Sandbank is the first in a very long series, how lucky I bought the first one!

    I like that – book polygamist! I am definitely guilty of that at the moment! 🙂 Here’s my BTT. Happy reading!

    Interesting that you put down % and number of pages into the books you’re reading. Haven’t heard of the ones you’re mentioning.
