What I Will Be Reading #47: Pandemic edition

Time to add some books to my TBR list. It’s not like I can go to the library any time soon, since everything is closed for the pandemic. I might be able to find these on another service or even as an ebook through my library. Regardless, I can add them to my TBR list.

First off are two audiobooks. Modern Mrs. Darcy recommended Quick Service by P. D. Wodehouse in a post about great British audiobooks. As a bonus, it would get me the ever elusive Q for my Alphabet Reading Challenge. Laura Weldon recommended The Highland Witch by Susan Fletcher in a retrospective post about 2019. She thought it was the best audiobook she listened to last year. That’s good enough to put it on my “to listen” list. Bonus, it’s available for free on Hoopla.

Sticking with historical fiction set elsewhere, I thought I’d read The Bedlam Stacksby Natasha Pulley. It was recommended by A Strong Sense of Place, a new blog and podcast that recommends books that contain (surprise surprise) a strong sense of place. This one is set in 19th century Peru. As I’m trying to read books set in different countries, I realized Peru isn’t a common setting. Besides, their description of the book sounded fascinating.

One more from Modern Mrs. Darcy. She did a post about short, feel good books. I was most intrigued by The Garden of Small Beginnings by Abbi Waxman. It’s spring and my plants are sprouting, and I’m in the mood to read about gardening.

Finally, I’m going to include Space Opera by Catherynne M. Valente. Wandering Scientist described it as Eurovision plus Douglas Adams. I could definitely use a bit of humor in my life.

And those are the books I want to read. See anything you like? Have any to suggest?
