I was looking forward to putting a big dent in my TBR list this week. So what do I do? Go ahead and request more books. sigh why do I do this to myself? Oh yes, because I love reading!
So, here’s what’s on my Kindle this week:
The Origins of Everything by David Bercovici
Covering 13.8 billion years in some 100 pages, a calculatedly concise, wryly intelligent history of everything, from the Big Bang to the advent of human civilization.
A short (100 pages) book, it packs a lot of information into each page, but it’s written so that anyone can understand it. I’m already well into it, I’ve always had an interest in the origin of the universe and the evolution of our planet. This book is so fascinating and has already blown my mind.
Clock and Dagger by Julianne Holmes
Expert clockmaker Ruth Clagan has another murder on her hands in the second Clock Shop Mystery from the author of Just Killing Time.
I’m also well into this one, and I loved the first book in the series, Just Killing Time. It took me a bit to get into this one, but I’m really enjoying it now. I love the little small town in Massachusetts where the book is set, it reminds me a lot of the tiny town where I grew up. I love the multi-dimensional plot, and the supporting characters are getting a little more dimension. Solid read so far!
Quirky Essays for Quirky People: The Complete Collection by Barbara Venkataraman
This one has been on my TBR list for awhile now, and I’ve been reading each essay when I have a few minutes to read, but not enough time to get back into a book. I’m about a third of the way in and the essays have been very enjoyable and laugh-out-loud funny. The Dinner Party has been my favorite so far, it was so relatable! It was just like when my family gets together for dinner. Oh, Dad’s off the wheat wagon again, and sister-in-law doesn’t like green bell peppers and Mom is doing Paleo now and….yeah, I related to that entirely too much.
The Healing Art of Essential Oils: A Guide to 50 Oils for Remedy, Ritual, and Everyday Use by Kac Young
Simple and potent, essential oils will transport you into a new world of aromatic awakening, physical healing, and natural delight. The Healing Art of Essential Oils is a comprehensive guide to fifty carefully selected oils, providing a master class in beneficial uses, blending suggestions, spiritual uses, background and history, cautions, names, ruling planet, and corresponding element.
After I got a neck massage a few weeks ago that used Juniper and Eucalyptus essential oils, I’ve been interested in learning more about how to make and use them.
Dangling By A Thread by Lea Wait
The Mainely Needlepointers are about to learn that no man is an island—especially when greedy developers want his land . . .
I read the previous book in this series (Thread and Gone) and loved the setting, a small town in Maine and the embroidery theme. Hmm, now that I think about it, I was going to read the other books in the series. But that’s a TBR for another day…
