Friday Reads

I have no real post for you today. I didn't finish my book because I went off to see Rhys Bowen at  the Poisoned Pen. Her new Royal Spyness mystery, The Twelve Clues of Christmas, is just out. That's what I'm reading.

On Fridays on Twitter and Facebook, there's a topic called Friday Reads. Anyone can mention what they're reading. On Twitter, you mention the book, and use the #FridayReads. I'm not going to take anything away from them, but since I don't have an actual post today, why don't you tell me what you're reading right now?

I'm sure we're all interested!

I am readingThe Twelve Clues of Christmas! And I am enjoying it. Just finished Princess Elizabeth's Spy and that was good, too.

I've been "restarting" books that I couldn't get into the first time around amd find that I still can't get into them! I have a big pile to donate. Now to dig through my TBR pile and find a good read - a can't put down book/an all-nighter!

I haven't been reading much because we didn't have power after the Hurricane. Im just staring a YA book - Whispers at Moonrise by c.c. hunter

I am excited about a cookbook - THE DAILY COOKIE by Anna Ginsberg! 365 cookie recipes related to events like Chocolate Chip Day. There's even a cookie for Banned Books Week.

I bought this from The Mystery Guild and have it on my TBR shelf for pre-Christmas reading. The book looked interesting.

Christie! Since you're the one who told me about Mr. Churchill's Secretary, I'm glad you liked Princess Elizabeth's Spy. Rhys' program at Poisoned Pen last night was fun. I'll have that posted in a couple days.

Karen,

I hope you do find something good soon. How frustrating to not have a good book.

Lesa said...

Sandy,

I hope you're OK now. Totally understand not reading when you don't have power.

Lesa said...

Cindy,

What an interesting concept. What's the cookie for Banned Books Week?

Lesa said...

Joe,

I wouldn't be doing Christmas reading so early if I didn't have my brown bag luncheon this coming week. I need to tell them about some Christmas books, though.

I am reading Year of Biblical Womanhood by Rachel Held Evans and am finishing up Acedia and Me by Kathleen Norris. For fun I just finished The Edge of Nowhere by Elzabeth George. Oh, and I had a serious sit-down with the Smitten Kitchen cookbook. I can't wait to reach 12 Clues of Christmas!

I haven't started reading Rhys yet, but I am collecting her books.
Right now I'm reading Lost and Found by Amy Shojai (p. 40). If you want to get into the mind of a dog, try this one :)

I'm reading "Stolen Away" by Max Allan Collins on the Lindbergh baby case & I just got a copy of "Murder at the Luther." When I showed the latter to a nice young librarian she loved the cover & book quality & said her mother reads ALL of Kathleen Kaska's books.

And on your Christmas theme I should mention that I have started thumbing through my well used copy of "The Little Book of Christmas Joys" by Jackson Browne. It always cheers and inspires I find.

No holidays books yet. I'm currently reading The Darling Dahlias and the Confederate Rose by Susan Wittig Albert. Delightful characters, a mystery and a bit of history (the American South in the early 1930s). It's the third book in the series and it's very enjoyable (just like the first two). And BTW, I've added the series by MacNeal to my book list. Sounds like a great read!

Lesa said...

I just love to see what you are all reading! Thanks for sharing. I see books that I didn't know about, and some I really enjoyed (Stolen Away, Max Allan Collins, terrific). Thanks everyone! And, Jane? I own MacNeal's books, and haven't read them yet. But, everyone I give them to loves them. (Thanks to my sister, Christie, for her report so I bought them.)

I have just read The Other Side of the Bridge (Mary Lawson) and The Vanishing Act of Esme Lennox (Maggie O'Farrell) and quite honestly they were both far too depressing for me (though both well written.)

So now I'm indulging in some light relief with the latest Scotland St book from A McCall Smith, & am already enjoying meeting up with Bertie & Cyril again. Lovely gentle humour & lots of Edinburgh observations.

I have a TBR pile that's totally out of hand, but sometimes I just want to curl up with something fairly predictable and comforting.

No Christmas books here yet!
