Weekly Book News- 8/19/17

Hi all, just an abbreviated check-in this week as I'm still recovering from my cross-country adventure move to our new home. Still so much to do, and so many aches & pains & bouts of fatigue to get over! Slowly but surely I'm re-entering the blogosphere, though! I'm excited to be back!

What I've read in the past month or so:

The Almost Sisters by Joshilyn Jackson: excellent (for me)

The Forgotten Girls by Owen Laukkanen: excellent (for me)

A New Leash on Love by Debbie Burns: good (for me)

Best Intentions by Erika Raskin: good (for me)

The Salt House by Lisa Duffy: very good (for me)

The Good Daughter by Karin Slaughter: excellent (for me)

what I'm reading currently:

Losing Leah Holloway by Lisa Regan: very good so far (for me)
Her Darkest Nightmare by Brenda Novak: very good so far (for me)

*recent post that pulled me in:
Musings of a Bookish Kitty  shares a thoughtful and informative review of a book I hadn't heard of:
Those Who Save Us by Jenna Blum --check it out if you enjoy WW II historical fiction!

*recent bookish news that I enjoyed reading:
Buzzfeed Books shares a fun article this week.
 24 Novels That Are Crying Out to Be Turned Into a TV Series
 I've only read half a dozen of these but I don't like good books mangled on the big (or small) screen. Case in point: I really enjoyed Under the Dome by Stephen King, but the summer tv series was just... wrong... in my opinion. What do you think-- do you agree with the writer's choices?

Have a wonderful weekend in your page of the bookish world!
