This Week in Books
This Week in Books is a weekly round-up in which I look back on a book I've finished, highlight one I am currently reading, and one I will read in the near future. What are you reading these days? Stay safe!
THEN: I finished Levison Wood's Walking the Americas. I have read all of Wood's books, but this one (or maybe Walking the Nile) are my favorites. He goes on these mad treks that I would never have access to (nor often the desire to) attempt myself. It is a combination of exciting armchair travel and cultural reflection, which I found really engaging. I would highly recommend reading the books before you watch the TV series based on the books, because the show offers just a glimpse of what the books elaborate on.
NOW: I just started Scott Turow's The Last Trial. I haven't read his other books and I am not yet sure how that is going to impact my enjoyment of this one. Fingers crossed it won't matter much. I usually prefer to start a series at the beginning, but I am not usually so big on legal thrillers to want to go through the ten books that preceded this one.
NEXT: I may read Ask Again, Yes by Mary Beth Keane next. I've heard a lot about this book, and I do enjoy a bit of (fictional) family drama...
