I’m reading more than one book at a time, as usual.

This is a unique take on World War II historical fiction. It is about what the Nazis did to the works of art in the countries they conquered, and a man trying to return some of what is left to the rightful owners. My review will be posted tomorrow.

This is a unique and quirky book about a magical library with some of the best lines I have ever read. I’ll share one with you: “All giraffes are named Janice, excepting a few heretics.” I’m enjoying it very much so far.


This is a powerful book about domestic abuse and friendship. My review is here.

This is an important book of poetry and interesting facts about endangered animals in Africa. My review is coming soon.


“The All American” is about the All American Girls Baseball League. I loved the movie “A League of Their Own,” so I have high hopes for this. “Beneath the Darkening Clouds” is about the Irish Potato Famine, a tragedy that has always fascinated me for many reasons that I will share in my review. “Ithaca Bound” is a Roman time travel mystery, and many of you know how I love time travel fiction. I’m reading all of these books for The Historical Novel Society, so I can’t share the reviews until August 1st, after they are published.

What about you? What are you reading? What have you just finished? What are you reading next?

  1. Imaginary Friends sounds really interesting Bonnie. I love Lion Scream and hope to read the Allie Cresswell books. I hope you enjoy whichever one you pick up next.

  2. I’m currently beta reading a book that defies being pigeonholed into one particular genre, which I always appreciate. I just finished More Poetic Meanderings by Kevin Morris, which I enjoyed for its “variations on a theme” approach. Then I’m going back to reading The Siege of An Loc by Hien T. Nguyen.

  3. Interesting reads, Bonnie. I just finished “Harem” by Colin Falconer, a story of some of the women in Suleiman the Great’s harem. I just started The Siege of An Lộc by Nguyễn Trọng Hiền.
