I’m writing this late Saturday night (technically, early Sunday morning). Just got home from playing flute in a performance of J.S. Bach’s Mass in B minor. Loved the incredibly live acoustics of the stunning church where the concert was held. This is such a massive piece, lengthy with few breaks. Physically exhausting, but hey, it’s Bach. Totally worth it.

So bummed about this! The setting and storyline, fantastic. I have a review drafted that talks about why it didn’t work for me.

Confession time: I started reading books from my Bout of Books pile early. I opened this one just to skim the first page or so, and couldn’t put it down.
Can’t Wait To Read:
All my (remaining) Bout of Books selections, and hopefully one or two more, if all goes well!
