The Sunday Salon: In Which I Finish Four Wonderful Books after Several Weeks of Wandering in a Bookless Desert


Life slowed down just a bit this week, and I was able to get some reading time in for the first time in a month or so. 

I also went to two wonderful author events with two wonderful authors who shared two wonderful books (more on this in future posts). 

And I am spending time with family this weekend---always a good thing!

I finished four books this week, two fiction and two nonfiction, 
and I strongly recommend them all.

The links will take you to my reviews.

The Mountains Under Her Feet by Catherine Vance (Historical Fiction)

Silas Marner by George Eliot (Classic)

Poverty by America by Matthew Desmond (Nonfiction)

The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas (Classic)

Isaac's Storm: A Man, a Time, and the Deadliest Hurricane in History by Erik Larson (Naturalist Book Club)

Happy Place by Emily Henry (Current Fiction)

The People's Hospital: Hope and Peril in American Medicine by Richardo Avila (Current Nonfiction)

from the Modern Mrs. Darcy

Last week I posted here at Readerbuzz:

Meaningful May 2023 Calendar

Good Thing #1

A lovely author event in my hometown
for The Mountains Under Her Feet by Catherine Vance 

Good Thing #2

The last Inprint author event of the season,
and Abraham Verghese was magnificent. 
I can't wait to read his new novel.

Good Thing #3

We are spending time 
with family this weekend.

I'm happy you joined us here at the Sunday Salon. Sunday Salon is a place to link up and to share what we have been doing during the week. It's a great way to visit other blogs and join in the conversations going on there. 

Some of the things we often talk about at the Sunday Salon:

  • What was your week like?
  • Read any good books? Tell us about them.
  • What other bookish things did you do? 
  • What else is going on in your life?

Other places where you may like to link up over the weekend are below. Click on the picture to visit the site.
