What I Will Be Reading #36: It’s Been a While

It’s been a while since I’ve had a What I Will Be Reading post. Trying to homeschool on top of teaching a 70+ person class AND a lab (even if it only has 11 students in it) has been a bit too much for my brain. But, I don’t have much grading to do today so I thought I’d add some books to my reading list.

Let’s start with a couple of suggestions from The Modern Mrs. Darcy. Let’s face it, I could basically populate my reading list with books she writes about, but I’m going to try to branch out a bit.

Miss Adventure is nearly a teenager, which makes Untangled: Guiding Teenage Girls Through the Seven Transitions into Adulthood by Lisa Damour highly appropriate. This book came from a post about books to help you navigate the tween and teen years. As an extra added bonus, it provides that elusive “U” for my Title Alphabet Challenge.

My second book from The Modern Mrs. Darcy is another nonfiction book. This time, though, it’s a book about books – my favorite. The book is called Dear Fahrenheit 451: Love and Heartbreak in the Stacks: A Librarian’s Love Letters and Breakup Notes to the Books in Her Life by Annie Spence.

My next book is a suggestion from my mother-in-law. She reads quite a bit and besides having a stronger taste for mysteries than I do, has a similar taste in books. If she suggests a book, I’m likely to enjoy it. She’s suggested I read The Tea Girl of Hummingbird Lane by Lisa See. A major thread of the story is about growing and picking tea. I’m a tea drinker, not a coffee drinker, so I think this will be interesting to read.

Finally, a science fiction book to round out my books for the day: Six Wakes by Mur Lafferty. I’m a long time fan of Mur, ever since she started her Heaven series (which is still available to listen to on Scribl for free). Six Wakes is her new novel and it is nominated for a Hugo Award this year. It’s a murder mystery in space. Who has killed the entire crew? The clones don’t know, since they’ve just been woken and everyone is dead.

So, any books look good to you? What else should I add to my book list?
