I missed posting yesterday because I was elbow deep in kid puke. Yup. Elbow deep. Harper & I both had a round with a stomach virus. I felt like crap. She puked like she was auditioning as an extra for Linda Blair. She’s better today, I need a nap. Or a drink. Or a drink, THEN a nap.
This week, I finished Caliban’s War. This is Book 2 in The Expanse Series. It did not disappoint! I’m pacing myself in this series, picking up another unrelated book in between each of these delectable morsels. They’re really that good. In this story, we have the same crew, searching for a botanist from Ganymede’s daughter who goes missing during a devastating event on the moon’s surface. The ugly protomolecule rears its head again (see Book 1); this time, looking a little more at home in a two-legged host. I can’t wait to start book 3!
Erika Swyler’s “The Book of Speculation,” is my in-between read during my Expanse series marathon. It’s marvelous and beautiful. I can’t muster enough adjectives for this book. If you liked “Water for Elephants,” “The Night Circus,” or “The Museum of Extraordinary Things,” you will LOVE The Book of Speculation. You will also immediately want to rent a car and drive to somewhere in New England with lighthouses, a body of water referred to as a “sound,” and visit a library. All in the same day. I want a lobster roll (totally unrelated).
