  1. Just finished: The Girl in the Mirror by Rose Carlyle, about identical (mirror image) twins and their inheritance, which gets left in full to the first sibling who produces a legitimate heir. My only real complaint was that the pacing felt a little off--long stretches devoted to things that didn't seem important while scenes I wanted to spend more time with were rushed through, and I thought the flashbacks could have been woven in a little more neatly. But overall found it a very gripping story until the last page. Some reviews I read thought there was too much boat jargon (a good portion of the book takes place on a yacht), but as somebody with zero sailing experience it didn't bother me. I was always able to follow what was happening. Next up: The Book of Lost Friends by Lisa Wingate.
  2. Just finished: Invisible Girl by Lisa Jewell. It took me awhile to get into it--I didn't really care about any of the characters and the way it was told just wasn't hooking me. A lot of very short "scenes" that made it hard for me to find my footing in the book's world. I became more gripped around the halfway point, and ultimately thought it stuck the landing, but I don't know if "I'd gone through 50% before it really got going for me" is a ringing endorsement. Next up: The Girl in the Mirror by Rose Carlyle
  3. Original airdate: 11/16/20
  4. This would be a backwards move for John at any other time, but I imagine now he'll take work wherever he can get it. It's a steady paycheck in an otherwise uncertain world. This isn't anything against Seth's show, he's my favorite of the current network late night hosts and I'm excited to see what John brings to the table, but it would be a strange thing for an accomplished stand-up like John to do during non-corona times.
  5. They are both filming shows that were originally supposed to shoot over the summer but got pushed back to fall because of covid (Aidy's in Portland and Cecily's in Vancouver). They are scheduled to only appear sporadically/remotely at least through the end of 2020.
