It was a busy day today. One of the things I did was attend the book group that meets at the library--first time since we've been here. Since it was the first time I was there, I had not read the book they discussed, but it was interesting to hear what they had to say nonetheless.
Here is the end of my February book list:
Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman
A Fatal Grace by Louise Penny
The second in the Inspector Gamache series. Reading this, I can see why people say to read the books in order. There’s a backstory that is unfolding regarding a case from Gamache’s past and the continuing repercussions. The third book is in transit.
Women, Art, and Society by Whitney Chadwick
Fleeing Xinhe Street by Zhe Gui, translated from the Chinese by Ana Padilla Fornieles
Saw this in the e-book section of the library website and borrowed it:
In a town where everyone has secrets, Wang Wuxian is the original conman. With a huge heart and a house full of strays, he scams everyone on Xinhe Street by getting them to invest in the One Plus One Guarantee Company. Hu Weidong is a fool that bites the bait, leaving his shoe business at risk of ruin while his wife Jiang Lina tries to pick up the pieces. Chen Naixing is the brains behind the whole operation and has the most at stake when things turn sour. All the while, Ai Mengya is the only one that has a handle on the situation. In the end, there is no easy way for anyone to run away from the trouble on Xinhe Street
The Sun Fish by Eiléan Ní Chuilleanáin
I hope this is a good day in your neck of the woods!
