I’m working on an index all weekend. The bot attacks on my blog just keep coming. I’m almost finished plying about 8 ounces of blue and purple wool/bamboo blend that I spun last fall; I spun it pretty fine, so there’s a lot of yardage, and it’s been taking a long time to ply it up. This afternoon, I’m looking forward to a family Zoom get-together with my husband’s side of the family.
I really enjoyed the COYER Book Club meeting last Sunday; we discussed Beach Read, which I’ve read, and To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before, which I hadn’t (but I stuck around for the discussion anyway, since I’m not planning on reading it.) March’s books are The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue and Uprooted; I’m looking forward to reading the former and rereading the latter.

What I’m Reading/Watching
Reading: I finished rereading When All the Girls Have Gone, plowed through the two remaining books in the trilogy (Promise Not To Tell and Untouchable, and continued my JAK rereading binge with Secret Sisters and Hidden Talents. (Since I have previously reviewed all of those except Promise Not To Tell, the links above take you to my review.) I also started reading Hidden Riches by Nora Roberts (for the first time), but I DNF’d it about halfway through. That’s rare but not unheard of for me with Roberts. Usually I love her books, but some are just not a good fit for me, and this one has some aspects that haven’t aged well. I’m debating whether I might ever want to go back and finish it, and whether or not to review it as a DNF.
As a palate cleanser, because I want to get off this romantic-suspense binge for a bit, I’m currently rereading the Complete Arrows Trilogy (aka the Queen’s Own trilogy) by Mercedes Lackey, beginning with Arrows of the Queen. It has been one of my comfort reads since I first read the books back when they came out in 1987–88.
