Life has taken a turn up for me which is keeping me busy in good ways. I've also been reading a lot of good books.

What I finished reading

Chrysalis: Maria Sibylla Merian and the Secrets of Metamorphosis ended up being an interesting and depressing read. It was wonderful in terms of what she accomplished and the gorgeous art but then history and male scientists ended up discrediting her. Thankfully in the last two decades, she's been brought back to where she should be. If you're interested in lady scientists and Europe in the late 1600s, I highly recommend this book.

What I'm currently reading

The Cestus Deception by Steven Barnes keeps getting better. It really is everything I love about The Clone Wars's series; complicated politics, thoughts on the Force, the price of war and the Clones. I can imagine it fitting into the television show.

Ivory Vikings: The Mystery of the Most Famous Chessmen in the World and the Woman Who Made Them by Nancy Marie Brown which is about the Lewis Viking chess set and the world they were made in.

Irish Cream by Andrew M. Greeley, this series is one of my potato chip series and I had no idea I'd missed one until I saw this at the library book sale. They're romance with mystery and some magical elements and make me happy. I just adore the couple and the way the author writes.

I think I've given up on No Dark Place the medieval mystery I was reading, I don't feel a great pull to read the last hundred or so pages.

What I'm reading next

My hold on Sorcerer to the Crown has come in at the library, so that will be next up. Also I have an ebook of Kenobi which I'll probably start soon and Watch the Sky, a middle grade novel about a kid growing up in an odd family environment. I started reading it when it came into the library but it hadn't been cataloged so put it down and now took it out again.
