New In This Week
Better Than New: How Saving Old Homes Saved Me by Nicole Curtis
“Part celebrity memoir and part self-help book, Better Than New goes behind the scenes with an entrepreneurial single mom who worked her way from waitress/real estate agent to home renovation expert, preservationist, and television star.”
I got this one because the ebook is $1.99 right now.
Finished This Week
What Am I Reading?
I’m in a starting phase.Â I’ve started books instead of finishing much.
Â Makeup Man: From Rocky to Star Trek the Amazing Creations of Hollywood’s Michael Westmore by Michael Westmore
I got this from the library because Patrick Stewart recommended it on Twitter. If Patrick Stewart tells me to read a book, I’m going to listen.
I was on the waiting list for this for a while. I didn’t realize that the author and main character were Chinese so it works for #AsianLitBingo.
Speaking of that, how am I doing so far?
Multiracial – The Woman Who Breathed Two Worlds
Poor MC – Outrun the Moon
Contemporary – The Witch’s Market
Translated – Paper Boats
Queer Romance – DNFed The Lonely War
I’ve also started a whole bunch of graphic novels set in India for the South Asian MC spot but so far nothing is sticking.Â
What Am I Listening To?
Â I’m still listening to this historical fiction novel about a midwife who is a friend of Abigail Adams during the Revolution.Â I’m still loving it.
Have you signed up for Armchair BookExpo yet?Â It starts on May 31.Â The schedule is up for discussion posts.Â I’m going to be helping out with the Twitter chats and other social media.Â Hope to see everyone there!
These books look interesting! http://shoshireads.weebly.com/home/its-monday-what-are-you-reading4107754
I’ve participated in the Armchair Expo before but it’s been a few years. I had a great week of reading and a fun mother’s day. Come see what I’m reading now.
I really enjoyed Noteworthy. It was a lot deeper than I anticipated, hitting on many social issues, but never getting bogged down by them. The bromantic parts were fun. I hope you enjoy it too.
