Finished A Wrinkle in Time, by Madeleine L'Engle. Takes a loooong time to get started, especially compared to more recent children's and YA books. Everything from their arrival on Camazotz until the end of the book is fantastic.

Started Destiny of the Republic, by Candice Millard. Millard is easily one of my favorite popular historians.

A Wrinkle in Time, by Madeleine L'Engle

Honestly, it's kind of a struggle? Maybe its' a book you have to read as a kid because I'm not getting into it. All the characters seem really flat and similar to me.

A Wrinkle in Time, by Madeleine L'Engle and it was exactly the wild trip of the imagination that fans have claimed it to be. Does a great job of answering the question, "What is it that makes us uniquely human?" Some elements feel a little hokey (like the physical form of IT) but I give that a free pass because it was written over half a century ago.


Stories of Your Life and Others, by Ted Chiang I've heard about the movie Arrival but haven't seen it yet. Still, I figured this is as good a time as any to read the short story it was based on. I'm warming up by reading some of the other stories in the anthology, and I'm just going to say "Tower of Babylon" gave me that first exploding-brain moment that apparently is Chiang's trademark.

A Wrinkle in Time, by Madeleine L'Engle First time through for me. I am glad I had time to "read" it (audio Book). You miss quick a bit from the movie. I am Kinda sad that I didn't read it before the movie though.


The Gate Thief, by Orson Scott Card Picked Series back up again. I read The Lost Gate a while ago and I am not sure why I never picked up the next book.

Measure What Matters, by John Doerr Book club for work.

Free Will by Sam Harris.He makes some interesting points in this book.

For Whom the Bell Tolls by Ernest Hemingway, which was an interesting wartime story set in Spain. There was a lot of thee, thou, and thine in the dialogue, which sounds like it was using the vosotros conjugation of the verbs,which is only used in Spain and Argentina, (yeah, I know a bit about Spanish and speak it fluently myself).


A Wrinkle in Time by Madeline L'Engle

I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings by Maya Angelou. I've been wanting to start reading her work, and was told this was a good place to start.

In The Shadow of Agatha Christie by various authors. This is a book of other mystery writers who weren't quite as well known as she was who wrote around the same period.

I finished A Gentleman in Moscow by Amor Towles

I loved it even better than Rules of Civility. Not a sweeping story but still full of exquisite dialogue and a plot that definitely had my heart racing at the end!

I started Bad Blood by John Carreyrou and I am FLYING through it. Tech startups are not my thing but a story of massive fraud and manipulative leadership that reads like a novel? Definitely up my alley.

I’m also planning to listen to Heartburn by Nora Ephron and A Wrinkle in Time by Madeline L’Engle (which I’ve somehow never read!!) on a road trip this week.

I just finished re-reading A Wrinkle in Time, by Madeleine D'Engle. I thought it'd be worth revisiting after 25 years, and I was right.

I just finished reading A Wrinkle in Time, by Madeleine L'Engle for the first time. I'd had never heard of the series until everyone started hyping the movie when the trailer was released, and I found a copy of the book at my local library's book sale last summer for $0.25. I liked it, but I disliked Meg as a character. I tried to keep in mind that she's a kid, barely 13, but she was too much of a brat for me. And the ending was a little too perfect, but that's just my opinion. I'm looking forward to reading the other four books, though.

Also, I'm currently reading: Liesl & Po, Lauren Oliver.

A Wrinkle in Time, by Madeleine L'Engle - It has been a while. I recall doing this in middle school and thought I'd reread it before the movie comes out and I take my kids

Sourdough, by Robin Sloan - Audiobook for this. I enjoyed Mr. Pnumbra, and this is also enjoyable.

I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings by Maya Angelou, which is a moving biography of her early life.

A Wrinkle in Time by Madeline L'Angle, which is a charming children's book about children time travelling to find their father.

I am still reading In the Shadow of Agatha Christie edited by Leslie S. Klinger. This is a collection of short crime fiction stories by female writers 1850-1917.


Intellectual Privacy: Rethinking Civil Liberties in the Digital Age by Neil Richards. The topic interests me.

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone by J.K. Rowling.

An Excess Male, by Maggie Shen King

An interesting take on Big Bad Government dystopia set in China. I don't know if anyone's ever stopped to think about the consequences of the One-Child Policy, but basically there are going to be way too many single Chinese men by the mid-21st century. The worldbuilding is imaginative (multiple-husband marriages are now legal) but also realistic enough to be chilling (homosexuality is outlawed and will have you sent to rehab). Goes from family drama into action thriller about 2/3 of the way through, which is a bit of an odd turn, but it does redeem itself with a bittersweet final scene.

Halfway through:

A Wrinkle in Time, by Madeleine L'Engle

One of the YA classics that I missed out on when I was a kid. From my adult viewpoint it seems kind of ... improvised? (Like ... stream of consciousness from scene to scene.) But I can't complain about the wild and wonderful imagery spinning out of L'Engle's head, or the use of theoretical physics woven in with more fantastical elements.
