Links I Loved This Week – 10/22/17

Links I Loved From The Bookish World For The Week Ending 10/21/17 On Novels And Nonfiction

I’ve had a pretty good week, aside from a small debacle with my rabbit getting sick on Friday (still ongoing, but hopefully he’ll be better soon). I mostly stuck to my blogging plan and made progress on my reading as well.

I read my Book Of The Month copy of Fierce Kingdom by Gin Phillips in one sitting, staying up till 1AM to finish it this past Sunday night. It’s under 300 pages and different from the usual thriller with the girl gone missing plot. Considering that shootings are now a sadly regular occurrence in the news, it could be triggering for some, but I found it exceptionally well done.

Book Of The Month also brought me another 5 star read this week in Killers Of The Flower Moon by David Grann. I loved its mix of history and true crime. Reviews for both Fierce Kingdom and Killers Of The Flower Moon will be up on the blog this week (along with reviews of the two other Book Of The Month books from my August delivery).

Hope all of you had a good reading/blogging/regular life week as well!

Anyone else ready for it to actually be fall? We’re going through another unseasonable heat wave in LA at the moment, and it’s scheduled to be over 90 degrees today. Whyyyyy! The sad part is nearly every day for the next week is supposed to be over 80, so there’s no end to this in sight for now.

I can’t be the only one who is firmly a creature of Fall and Winter. All I’m waiting for is the opportunity to layer, wear chunky scarves, drink tea or cider non-stop and in general have even more excuse to scorn society for my books. There’s also just something regenerative in the cold air and the feeling of holidays approaching. This week I was able to book my flight home for Christmas to Milan and that’s also something I always look forward to. I’ll be home for two weeks, hopefully doing nothing but stuffing myself full of Italian food and reading 🙂

I enjoyed reading through everyone’s posts this week. Here are my favorite links!
