Other Than Reading...
This week just sped by. This weekend will be filled with doing report cards for my 200+ students. Our weather had been cool, rainy and snowy but the weekend is supposed to be nicer. I had furnace issues over Easter. Naturally, the people who could fix it were away for the Easter weekend. I heated my house with my oven from Saturday morning until Monday afternoon. Hopefully, all problems have been solved and things will work now.
The author signing at The Red Balloon was a lot of fun. I came home with pictures and a bunch of autographed books. The drive back wasn't much fun though. The combination of really dark and raining made finding my lane a little tricky. I was content to follow the car in front of me but I still don't know why their speed varied from 54 to 68 randomly but I wasn't going to pass them.
Read Last Week
The Outliers by Kimberly McCreight was a science fiction mystery that cries out for a sequel. I liked the characters and thought the story was intriguing. My review will be posted on April 23.
The Star-Touched Queen by Roshani Chokshi was a great fantasy based on Indian mythology. The story was lush and lyrical. My review will be posted on April 27.
The May Queen Murders by Sarah Jude is set in the Ozarks and an isolated community. Ivy tells the story about the murder of her cousin and her investigation which uncovers generations of secrets. My review will be posted on April 28.
