Hello and welcome to the Wednesday Book Club. You may be wondering, “Who is this handsome devil, and where is Geesejuggler?” Well, she’s stuck juggling geese so I’ve been asked to fill in. Don’t look the minion in the eyes, or you will be forever lost to them.

So this past week I picked up two books at random from the library. One was a smashing new adventure book called Hell’s Gate. The other was a “quirky” cozy mystery novel that tried waaaaay to hard to be “quirky” and also included some amazingly tone deaf comparisons of yard work to slavery. All in the first chapter. So that was a no-go. How about y’all? What have you read in the past week or so?
