TSS: Better Late Than Never

I had every intention of getting this post up around 8 or 9 this morning, but I woke up this morning to a conspicuous lack of electricity. Actually, the lack of electricity is what woke me up, because the battery back up on the modem and the wireless router started beeping. Although we were only without power for about 30 minutes, my husband asked that I not turn anything back on, in case they had to cut the power again to fix whatever the problem was.

So then we left for church, then it was lunch with the inlaws. Now I’m home and the power and internet are finally back on and I’m finally getting this written around 5 pm.

Anyway, this was a good week, reading wise, and really just in general. I finished two audiobooks, both by China Mieville and narrated by John Lee, the first of which I have already reviewed (click the cover of “The City & The City” for review):

I also finished four books in print, the first three of which I have already reviewed (covers link to reviews):

Look out for my review of “Dangerous Neighbors” this coming week. In addition to reviewing a majority of what I read this week, I also reviewed the audiobook of “How to Buy a Love of Reading” by Tanya Egan Gibson:

  • I’ll be looking forward to your reviews. The Life You’ve Imagined and Dangerous Neighbors looks interesting. Enjoy the rest of your Sunday~

  • Being without power totally stinks. Thankfully it doesn’t happen very often around here. Glad you had such a great week and I hope next week is just as good!

  • Amy

    I read your review of “The Life You Imagined” and am quite anxious to read it as well as Riggle’s other books! Great review.
    It sounds like a nice Sunday despite the loss of electricity. Glad it returned!

    I hope you have a great week this week, too.

  • I ordered The City and the City because of you, you know! I don’t think a great week for me will ever touch what your norm seems to be!

  • I know I could Google this and find this out, but are The City and The City and Kraken part of a series? I recently saw Kraken at the library and thought it looked intriguing, but really know nothing about it. Also dumb question: again I could Google, but I’ll just ask if you know is China Melville related to Herman Melville? And finally, since I can’t get to your review of The City and The City yet, did you like it? And did you like Kraken?

    • Ooh, lots of questions!

      First, no, they are not part of a series. I think that all of Mieveille’s novels stand alone.

      Not related, as far as I know. I think that Mieville is British, also.

      Absolutely loved “The City and the City.” Very much enjoyed “Kraken,” it was great, but I just didn’t love it quite as much as “The City and the City.”

  • Mieveille. Oh, I feel like such an idiot right now. That’s what I get for looking at covers too quickly. I had it in my head that it was Melville. But thanks for the answers and not calling me the idiot I am. :)
