Over the past few days, I’ve received by first few galley proofs from NetGalley.com. I’m really excited to dive into them, but I have a stack of library books that I need to get through first.
Though I love the idea of other people finding this blog and using it to make decisions about what to read, I’m using it as an opportunity to keep myself writing and thinking about things critically. I’ve fallen off the wagon in that respect since I graduated from school last December, so it’s time to pick it back up again.
I’m currently working through Philippa Gregory’s The Lady of the Rivers about Jacquetta of Luxembourg. I file these types of historical romance novels under “guilty pleasures.”
So far, it’s an enjoyable read, though I do have a few minor issues with it that I’ll get into when I write up a full review.
Anyway, here’s my tentative reading list for the next few weeks. It comprises some eclectic choices. I get in the mood to read something, and request it from the library as soon as I think of it.
As you can see, I put myself in a pickle with all these books! But it’s great, of course.
