Also breezed through Lois Lowry's Gathering Blue. Now onto, Messenger.
The Martian was a blast. I was somewhat reluctant to try the movie, but I also enjoyed it. (I have a lot of friends of friends of this author, oddly enough, including NONwriter friends. Some weird little life overlaps, including a Scrabble friend.)
Also, I LOVE Lois Lowry. Loved Gathering Blue.
I'm working on my fighting-gloom reading list for fall: I have re-upped kindle unlimited so I can bounce around frou-frou stuff if I feel like it. I also am starting GRR Martin's Wild Card series. Not sure what I think about it yet. The premise is right up my alley. Maybe some lighter mysteries?
