Reading Report from North Central Texas: July 2016

July booksGood evening!  July has been a busy month around the Reimund household.  It looks like we still have had time to read a thing or two.

Alexis liked the M.M. Kaye books she found at the library.  This month it was Death in Kenya.  These books reminded her of Mary Stewart’s writing.  She found my collection on the bookshelf and reread The Moonspinners and Madam Will You Talk.  Sometimes it is fun to reread a book, it is like visiting with an old friend.  Here’s a list of some of the other books she read this month.

  • Rose Cottage by Mary Steward
  • Just One Damned Thing After Another By Jodi Taylor
  • Etiquette and Espionage by Gail Carriger
  • The Just City by Jo Walton
  • Half-Resurrection Blues by Daniel José Older

Sarah has been revisiting a favorite of hers A View from Saturday by E.L. Konigsburg.  She also finished Let’s Pretend This Never Happened by Jenny Lawson.

Jim started Neal Stephenson’s tome Seveneves.  He likes “science” science fiction and this is a story about preserving humanity after the break up of the moon.  He was given Fart Proudly by Benjamin Franklin by his brother, Andy during our visit to Washington DC. He reads a bit of it now and then.  I may have to take a peek at this one.

A man lay deadLike Alexis I visited with an old friend, Ngaio Marsh. I read most of her Inspector Alleyn books years ago.  I was looking in my library’s Overdrive ebook collection and found that they have a full complement of her mysteries.  A Man Lay Dead is the first in this series.  It is excellent.  Here’s the rest of my list.

  • The Trials of Apollo: The Hidden Oracle by Rick Riordan
  • A Walk in the Woods  by Bill Bryson
  • The Ruins of Gorlan by John Flanagan
  • The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman
  • Just One Damned Thing After Another by Jodi Taylor
  • Etiquette and Espionage by Gail Carriger
  • When You are Engulfed in Flames by David Sedaris
  • Half-Resurrection Blues by Daniel José Older
