Library book: This Is How It Always Is – Fulfills the Kindle requirement, too.
Bookclub book: The Living Is Easy – Chosen for Bookclub 1/5
Kindle Unlimited book: Kingdom Keepers – Been sitting in my Kindle Unlimited account for ages. The Paper Magician, and The Wendy should be up soon
Audible book: Gentleman in Moscow – Chosen for Bookclub 1/8

This week’s audiobook is by Jeanne Gaffigan. When Life Gives You Pears. I am really enjoying it, and I’ll be finishing it quickly.
This week’s Kindle book is A Royal Christmas Wish. I started it for a bookclub, but I won’t be able to make the bookclub, so I will relax about finishing it by a certain time.
I have a few library books almost finished and I’ll be ready to return them soon.
I still have books to finish to make my goal of 120 books for the year. I need to get my reading time scheduled. And my gym time, but that’s another matter.
The Life We Bury by Allen Eskens My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I picked this up as a bookclub book, so I wasn’t sure what to expect. The beginning seemed pretty basic, but then it blossomed into the unexpected.
I really enjoyed the book, and I flew through it quickly. I would definitely recommend it.

This was a crazy week, so Wednesday’s post is happening on Saturday. Again, better late than never.
I have two audiobooks going. One I started because none of the books I had on hold came through. That one is Thirty Year Crisis. I am not loving it.
The other audiobook is The Life We Bury. Bookclub is Sunday. I hope I can finish in time. I have three hours left in it, and a hour long drive, each way to my bookclub party tonight.
I am still working on the Alcatraz book from the library.
I have Perfect Princess by Meg Cabot going, and A Royal Christmas Wish is for bookclub on the 18th. Both are on the kindle.
I have 9 books to go to finish my annual goal. Hopefully, these five will get me close to being finished.
Again, I missed Wednesday’s post, so Friday will have to do.
I am finishing up Magic for Liars which was for bookclub last week. It’s on audiobook, and I am thoroughly enjoying it.
I am finishing up my Kindle book, Enchanted Ever After. It’s the latest in the Enchanted, Inc series, and I have loved every one of the books so far, including this one.
I am still working on the library book about Alcatraz. I may finish it this weekend.
I have to choose a book stack book to get done. They are starting to take over. It kind of reminds me of The Blob.
Lovecraft Country by Matt Ruff
4 of 5 stars
I picked this book up because of bookclub. I had no idea what I was getting into when I started it. I ended up enjoying it a lot. I didn’t have any background with Lovecraft’s books, but I didn’t really need it to understand the book.
The book kind of read like a book of short stories, but all of the stories actually tied together somehow. It all made sense in the end. It had well-rounded characters that I ended up caring about by the end. It wasn’t too scary, even though it’s tagged as horror. The sci fi part was important, though. Neither are my usual genre, but it was still worth the read.
