I have reached my goal of 50 books in the Goodreads Reading Challenge! I am now expanding my goal to 80, and hope to reach even 100! I have at least ten library ebooks on loan through Overdrive, and hope I can get to them before the loans expire! There are two historical mystery novels by Barbara Cleverly, the newest book by Lisa See, another book by Kate Atkinson, and a few literary fiction and other mysteries.
An ARC arrived:
Insignificant Events in the Life of a Cactus by Dusti Bowling, September 5, 2017, Sterling Children's Books
“Whoa! What happened to your arms?”
Aven Green gets that question a lot. She loves to tell people that she lost her arms in an alligator wrestling match, or a wildfire in Tanzania, but the truth is she was born without them.
It’s hard to solve a mystery, help a friend, and face your worst fears. But Aven’s about to discover she can do it all . . . even without arms. (goodreads)
I finished only one book last week, though I have started on others.
When Will There Be Good News, a mystery by Kate Atkinson, September 2008.
Re my gardening news, he rain has stopped, it's sunny out, and I'm waiting for frosty nights to be over before I plant the annuals and herbs - oregano, basil, thyme - I bought last week.
What's on your reading plate this week?
