The Bibliophile Files - 12/1/15

Holy Schmoley - it's already December! How did that happen? It's OK tho - I finished a good list of books this month. Getting back into my quilt lab and back to walking after falling down the stairs at the end of October helped me get through many of these books. I've got to finish 11 more books to have read more books than last year. I don't think that will be a problem!

On Thursday it will be official - no measurable snow at the Buffalo Airport or downtown Buffalo yet. A record that has held since 1899 and we aren't due for snow for another week or so. (Our weather mimics Buffalo, even tho they are an hour away, as we are both in the lake effect snow belt) I can only imagine how we will pay for this later...

Completed:
Code Name Verity
Spartan Gold - a new to me series - can't wait to read the next one!
Unintended Consequences
Postcard Killers
Nemesis
Swamp Bones
Z: A novel of Zelda Fitzgerald - I wasn't sure what to expect other than a dry biography but I needed a 'z' book and this filled the bill. It turned out to be a fascinating story of an author and his wife that I had no background on. I just might have to read some Fitz and Hemmingway books...
Kitchens of the Great Midwest - O.M.G. This is one of my most favorite books ever. I don't want to give away the ending but lets say it's 97.7% of what I wanted to happen. Essentially it's a foodie book that moves through the evolution of family and friends and their daily struggles. And I would like to add that this should be a movie!!!!
The Apprentice
Wicked - cool, another series to read, even if it is short. I've never seen the play but now I really hope to. Funny thing, I was finishing this book when Mom told me the live version of The Wiz will be on tv this Thursday. Woot!
14th Deadly Sin

In progress:
On my home stereo: Hearts in Atlantis
On my iPhone: V is for Vengance

And now it's your turn - We want to hear it all: novels, magazines, new quilt books, fav blogs and cereal boxes. Looking forward to hearing about them all!!

I love Hemingway; he's probably one of my favorite classic literature authors! I may have to give Wicked a go. Gone Girl did *nothing* for me. I couldn't even finish it, which is so rare! Weird, eh?? I've got a book review on blog tour tomorrow -- I'll link up then!! :)

I've not seen Wicked or read it, but my sister has done both. She loves the play, but was not fond of the book. I'll be interested in your assessment.

I read Wicked when it first came out, I hated it.
I'm behind on my blog reading and missed your fall. I hope you're okay?

A nice list, Sarah! I'm reading Orwell now. My friend ordered me this book "1984" on essaytoday.net for my birthday. I only started reading it several days ago, but I like it already. It's a bit gloomy and sad, but I'm sure I'll read it quickly till the end.
Hugs,
Claudia
