We must catch up!

I have failed to keep up with my reviews of books. I've been in a knitting frenzy so the book reading has taken a bit of a backseat. It's the holidays, after all!

Here's a brief synopsis of what I've read:

The Sea of Monsters by Rick Riordan
The 2nd Percy Jackson which I read because I want to see the movie. Plus I knew it would be a quick read.

The Age of Miracles by Karen Thompson Walker
Audio book recommended by Books on the Nightstand. It was ok. I think I expected more of an apocalyptic sort of tale, since the Earth's gravity is slowing, but it wasn't. Still an ok story.

W is for Wasted by Sue Grafton
I love this series. I love that it's still set in the 80's and they have no internet, cell phones or helpful computers. I really did enjoy this one.

Getting ready to start Joyland by Stephen King and working on The Age of Innocence by Edith Wharton (through the CraftLit podcast).

Last Saturday, I went to Beef and Boards, a dinner theater place in Indianapolis, to see Les Miserables. The food, as always, was excellent and the production was simply amazing. The singing was overwhelmingly stellar. I have the book on my kindle and will be tackling that now.

Les Mis is at Beef and Boards until November 24th.
