This turned out to be a disappointing week on the review front. Two of the books I expected great things from fell flat – one just a bit flat and the other I only finished because I forced myself. Two I DNF’d altogether and went back to the drawing board. A frustrating week overall.
But my new committee appointment came through, so that means taller stacks in Stacking the Shelves, and more great books to look forward to once we get our annual act together. So things are looking up. Especially as I’ve already finished two of the coming week’s books and I KNOW they are excellent. That’s always a plus!
I had a bit of a time looking for an appropriate cat picture for this week’s post, but in the end, I found one. Here’s Lucifer, soaking up the sun in one of his favorite sunbeam spots, with a look on his face that says “DO NOT DISTURB!” no matter how much we might need to open the front door.

I’m hoping to get a position on a library committee in my state for next year’s reading awards, and then I’ll have a bunch to add to my stack as well! Congrats on your appointment too! The Starless Crown is one I had to DNF. It wasn’t bad, just not the kind of book I really read these days. I used to love James Rollins, but just don’t read that too much anymore, and especially not high fantasy. HOpe you have a good week!

Reading committees are so much fun. But the whole “overachievers book club” nickname is also totally on the money. I love doing it so I hope you get to too! I haven’t read Rollins before so this was a first for me. Starless Crown has an OMG slow start that I probably would have DNF’d if not for the audio. I loved it in the end but in the beginning not so much. It’s also weird as it’s not exactly high fantasy even though it reads like one especially at the beginning. It’s one of those that “walks like a duck and quacks like a duck” but in the end turns out to be a platypus. Have a great week!
