Goodreads Update March 2021
I added a few books to my TBR shelf this month. I opted not to do an update halfway through the month because I think I had all of 4 books. Well, I've caught up. I think there are about 20 books on this list. So make a cup of tea, get your blanket, and settle in.
In a Book Club Far Away by Tif Marcelo - I picked this from Book of the Month for March. It's about three Army wives who had a book club that blew up spectacularly. The women haven't spoken in years. Now, one of them needs help and calls for the other two women to come to her aid. I'm here for the books.
The Ghost Variations: One Hundred Stores by Kevin Brockmeier - I liked the last book I read by Brockmeier even though that was at least 15 years ago. I heard about this one on the BookRiot podcast All the Books. This is 100 ghost stories. Some of them are only a page or two.
Mistress of the Ritz by Melanie Benjamin - I love Melanie Benamin. This one is about Blanche Auzello and her husband who own The Ritz Hotel in Paris during the 30s and 40s. They are working for the French Resistance while hosting Nazis in the hotel.
The Reading List by Sara Nisha Adams - This promises to be sweet and endearing. It's about a widower who is worried about his granddaughter and a teen girl who works the checkout desk at the library. She finds a reading list in the back of a book and decides to read all the books. Then she passes the list to the widower and the bond between them blossoms.
The Original by Brandon Sanderson and Mary Robinette Kowal - This is a sci-fi novel by award-winning fantasy authors. That's all I got. I don't really understand the summary, but I'm here for the attempt.
The Faithless Hawk by Margaret Owen - This is the sequel to The Merciful Crow that I loved in 2019. I've had the book for awhile, but my kid stole it as soon as it came in. I'll have to steal it back to read it.
Transient Desires by Donna Leon - This is the latest Commissario Brunetti mystery, so of course I put it on the list.
Fire Keeper's Daughter by Angeline Boulley - A couple of people I follow on YouTube read and loved this, so I guess I'll add it to my list.
Good Talk: A Memoir in Conversations by Mira Jacob - I heard this recommended on the Get Booked podcast, I think. It sounded good. It's a record of conversations the author has had with her son.
Lumberjanes, Vol. 10 by Shannon Watters - I love this series and I am quite behind.
Hench by Natalie Zina Walschots - I saw this on a YouTube video. The main character becomes a henchperson for the local villain. It's like the reverse of a superhero story. She's an antihero.
Senlin Ascends by Josiah Bancroft - I also saw this on YouTube. Or maybe Instagram. Either way, the reviewer said it was like one book meets another book. At this point, I can't remember what the two books are, but whatever they were, I immediately added the book to my list.
Queen of Shadows by Sarah J. Maas - This is the next book in the series. I thought I already had it on my list, but apparently not.
The Lost Apothecary by Sarah Penner - My niece said this was good. Then I heard a review of it on a BookRiot podcast and thought it sounded good. So here it is
There it is! Do any of these look interesting to you?
