Reviews coming soon...
A couple of crazy weeks followed by weekends of travel have lead to a sorry scarcity of 'proper' reviews at Lakeside Musing. This week is shaping up to be more of the same and will be followed by a weekend get-away for my husband's birthday. My goal is to carve out an hour or two, find a quiet spot (the one above is on Daughter #1's campus), and finish up some reviews.
Here's what I'm working on:
97 Orchard: An Edible History of Five Immigrant Families in One New York Tenement by Jane Ziegelman. My book club met last Thursday. Now I can include their reaction, too.
Jitters - A Quirky Little Audiobook by Adele Park. I'll also be hosting a give-away.
Stiff: The Curious Lives of Human Cadavers by Mary Roach
The Language of Baklava by Diana Abu-Jaber. Saturday's Writer's Almanac told me it was her birthday, but also served as a reminder that this review has been lingering in my draft folder for far too long.
Travels with Charley in Search of America by John Steinbeck
Her Fearful Symmetry by Audrey Niffenegger
My google reader is crying out for attention, too.
Wish me luck...
