New In This Week

Better Than New: How Saving Old Homes Saved MeBetter 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.  I’ve started books instead of finishing much.

 Makeup Man: From Rocky to Star Trek the Amazing Creations of Hollywood's Michael WestmoreMakeup 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.



NoteworthyNoteworthy by Riley Redgate

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. 

What Am I Listening To?

 I’m still listening to this historical fiction novel about a midwife who is a friend of Abigail Adams during the Revolution.  I’m still loving it.

Have you signed up for Armchair BookExpo yet?  It starts on May 31.  The schedule is up for discussion posts.  I’m going to be helping out with the Twitter chats and other social media.  Hope to see everyone there!
