I've been reading novels by Lisa Unger, an author I haven't read for close to ten years. Recently I finished Fragile and Darkness, My Old Friend. Enjoyed them both.
Started John Harvey's Charlie Resnick series, with Lonely Hearts. I like the character as well as the author's writing style, so I'll continue with the series.
I'm now reading What Came Before He Shot Her, the next for me in the Inspector Lynley series, although Lynley isn't in the book. I just found out that Elizabeth George has a brand new book in the series, A Banquet of Consequences, due to be published in October of this year.
Via Netflix, I've recently seen Get On Up, a biopic of James Brown that I enjoyed a lot. Also, The Theory of Everything (excellent; Eddie Redmayne deserved every bit of his Oscar and Golden Globe awards for his role), and Kings of Pastry, a documentary about French pastry chefs ~ also enjoyable.
When the post office is doing what they should be doing, I can get two DVDs a week from Netflix, one at a time. That hasn't been the case lately, though. It can take 3 or 4 days for them to get my movies back in the mail, even though I send them back the day after I receive them. Wonder what's going on with the postal service in these parts... I'd still rather not pay more money to get two movies at a time, because most nights I'd rather read than watch something. At this rate, though, it'll take me three years to get through my queue at Netflix...and that's if I don't add anything else.
