FF: The Expanded Version

Persephone Guards A Precious Edition

Summer is taking me outside more, so I’m reading a bit less. However, I did transplant eighteen volunteer tomato plants, put in four new pepper plants, and plant hollyhocks for later in the season, so all is not lost…

For those of you just discovering this part of my blog, the Friday Fragments lists what I’ve read over the past week.  Most of the time I don’t include details of either short fiction (unless part of a book-length collection) or magazines.

The Fragments are not meant to be a recommendation list.  If you’re interested in a not-at-all-inclusive recommendation list, you can look on my website under Neat Stuff.

Once again, this is not a book review column.  It’s just a list with, maybe, a bit of description or a few opinions tossed in.

I enjoy hearing what you’re reading, by the way…

Recently Completed:

Digger by Ursula Vernon.  Graphic novel.  Smart.  Funny.  Clever.  Loved!

In Progress:

I Sing the Body Electric by Ray Bradbury.  Turns out the edition Elizabeth Leggett loaned me has more stories than mine did, so I’m reading the extras…

The Life of Greece by Will Durant.  Audiobook.  We are now into the Hellenistic period, focusing on Alexandria.

Also:

Copy edit for Wolf’s Search finished.  Dedication and Acknowledgments finished.  E-book files already back to me and I’m proofing yet again.  POD still to be proofed.

    I read Olive Kitteridge by Elizabeth Strout. I was surprised by how much I liked it. It is a very well written book.

    I also read The Time of Contempt (Witcher #4) by Andrzej Sapkowski. It had a few slow spots, but still a good read.

    Now, I am reading The Magic Engineer (The Saga of Recluce #3) by L.E. Modesitt Jr. and I have just started My Italian Bulldozer (Paul Stuart #1) by Alexander McCall Smith.

    My reading this week has been interrupted by life. (so rude😉)

    I completed Toxic Game by Christine Feehan. It’s book #15 of the Ghostwalker series. I had reserved the e-book from the library and didn’t read it, so I reserved it again and almost didn’t read it. I really liked the first few books of the series because of the Ghostwalker’s abilities. I wasn’t too keen on all the sex. It just seemed unnecessary, so I skipped over those parts. I don’t know why I feel like I have to continue reading new books in a series, but I do. I should have skipped this one.

    Still reading Nocturna by Maya Motayne. I’m about half way through and it’s okay but… I’ll finish it. Maybe the second half is better than the first.
