Chariots of The Gods by Erich von Dniken

A pleasingly crazy read re. about how the gods of the distant past were interplanetary travellers. Written in 1968, though, so the casual sexism is pretty jarring.

Yesterday evening I finished Waistcoats & Weaponry, the third book in Gail Carriger's "Finishing School" series. Lots of fun! I liked how the plot moved in one direction, then ramped up and took a turn in the last quarter of the book. The characters are great as well. I hope to start on the last book in the series this weekend.

My local library -- Arlington County, VA -- is doing a summer "Big Book" club, aka #ohboytolstoy. It really is meant to run all summer. There's a reading schedule and they're hoping to have a movie showing at the end. There is a FB group and a hashtag for twitter, a podcast that the librarians are doing, and weekly group discussions.

Anyone can join -- we just started as of the beginning of the month. Don't need to be local. Here's the website: https://library.arlingtonva.us/explore/for-readers/book-clubs/big-book-club-oh-boy-tolstoy/

I'm currently reading Genius Foods. I am now afraid to eat anything that comes from a box or jar.

Last night I finished Manners & Mutiny, the fourth & final book in Gail Carriger's "Finishing School" series. It had slow but dramatic start, then accelerated towards a rousing finish. There was a warm happy ending that I wanted and needed. I enjoyed how this and last book planted seeds for the "Parasol Protectorate" books. And there were the exploding fake desserts. I plan to move on from that to the final book in a more serious series, probably starting next week.

Mary, Queen of Scots, and the Murder of Lord Darnley by Alison Weir

I thought the research was good, but I was not happy about the writing.  The book needed the hand of a tough-minded editor.

Yesterday evening I finished The Custodian of Marvels by Rod Duncan, the third book is his "Fall of the Gas-Lit Empire" trilogy. This was a quite enjoyable book, and gave me more insight into the world, which I'd have to say is more alternate-history than steampunk. It began as a mystery about a book, then turned to revenge, then to a heist. Overall I quite liked this series. The author is writing more books in this universe. I'd like to know his next series ends before investing in it. That means I'll move on to another book next. Not quite decided which just yet...

This is an oldie but a goodie. Recommended to anyone fascinated with the Native Canadian culture.

Yesterday I finished Royal Assassin, the second book in Robin Hobb's "Farseer Trilogy." It was a really good novel. Took some turns I wasn't expecting, especially towards the end. I read Assassin's Apprentice, the first book in the trilogy, earlier this year. I'm going to wait a few days before starting on the third and final book, Assassin's Quest.
