    Oh I am glad to see those all included as “Awesome” books! I am saving the new Nora for the right occasion. I have to look up Hotel Ruby because that cover is excellent.

    I’m reading the Underground Girls of Kabul and am simultaneously depressed and fascinated

      The new Nora is not her best but still a lot of fun. Like all of her trilogies, she certainly knows how to grasp a reader’s interest and keep them on edge. Hotel Ruby was stunning, somewhat predictable but just an excellent read. If you need something lighter after you finish your current nonfiction selection, I would highly recommend either of those!

      So, so good! In fact, I will be buying a hard copy of it for my permanent library shortly. It is that good!

    I’m excited to read Illuminae. It’s getting such great buzz. Did you enjoy These Shallow Graves? I have that one, need to read it! I love having a good reading week like that once in awhile!

      I loved ALL of them this week. It was a week of late night reading because I didn’t want to stop reading any of them. All of them were so very different but just excellent.

    Along the Infinite Sea by Beatriz Williams. I am captivated by it

      Lucky you! My e-galley expired and archived before I ever got around to downloading a fresh copy of it.

    I hope you are liking Indifferent Stars. Yikes — what a fate.

      I am loving it. I honestly had no idea what the full story was. I’m in awe.

    Nice to get a week in of great reading. I liked the new Nora Roberts and I am keen to learn a little more about Illuminae.

      I loved the new Nora, but that type of trilogy with those types of characters are among my favorite of her stories. It has been a few years since I’ve read anything of hers, so it was great to dive back into her writing.

    The Indifferent Stars Above is supposed to be really interesting. How it is as an audiobook?

      It is very interesting. The narrator reminds me of a typical documentary narrator and is a little dry at times, but it fits the tone of the novel. As far a learning is concerned, I am sadly learning more than I ever thought I would. I had no idea some of things that happened to them. It is just an amazing story of human survival.

    I love the look of Illimunae – I hold a special affinity to illuminated novels. :)
