Slightly off topic - is anyone watching 'The Terror' based on the Dan Simmons book? My husband tried reading the book but couldn't get through it, but we're watching the mini-series now.

Just finished re-reading the A Series of Unfortunate Events saga so I could compare it to the Netflix show.

I like both for different reasons. The Netflix shows has scenes that never happen in the book, which I kind of like. The show also dives better in to the back story than the books.

Re-reading Sue Grafton's D is for Deadbeat. After this it's on to David Baldacci's The Fallen. Looking forward to his next installment of Amos Decker.

We Are All Welcome Here by Elizabeth Berg.

This one is a little different from her some of her other books, in that it is based on characters suggested to her by a fan. Not a true story, still fiction, but definitely some very interesting dynamics in the relationships.

2018 World Cup Fever - Stephen Rea

a transplanted Northern Irelander living in NOLA, he writes a witty book. And since the soccer community is a close one and we know each other, he wrote a humorous personalized note as well.

Oh, and Looking Back by Belva Plain was just plain awful. I have enjoyed so many of her past books, but this one was just terrible.

Thanks!
