What are You Reading?

It's the Friday after board meeting, when I usually get home a little later and go out to dinner since I'm late.
That means I don't finish a book. Instead, I ask you to tell me what you're reading. I'd love it if you told us what you're reading, and you can tell Twitter using #FridayReads.

I'm reading The Supremes at Earl's All-You-Can-Eat by Edward Kelsey Moore. I'm not far into it, but it's fun so far. And, it's set in southern Indiana. It's certainly a break from the book we're reading this month for book club, Susan Vreeland's The Passion of Artemesia. The first chapter of that book was a little too graphic, which makes it tough to go on.

So, what are you reading this week? Do you want to share?

I'm reading a cozy mystery, A Peach of a Murder by Livia J Washburn. I'm not very far into it yet but I'm enjoying it.

Always like to hear that a cozy mystery is good, Sandy. Thanks for sharing it!

Oh Lesa, I thoroughly enjoyed The Supremes at Earl's... Maybe I was just in the mood for that type of book. Right now I'm reading Brooklyn Bones by Triss Stein (I like it).

I recently read the first part of a mystery (or is it 'crime fiction' now?) and found it way too graphic for me, and quit.

On paper, I'm reading Malled to Death by Laura DeSilverio. I like the feeling of being with old friends again. On my ereader, I just started Every Contact Leaves a Trace by Elanor Dymott. I've just started it and I like it so far.

I just finished Michael Stanley's DEADLY HARVEST. Botswana Detective Kubu and his protege Samantha (the first woman homicide detective in the Botswana police) investigate the murders of kidnapped young girls. The motive for murder comes from the culture itself.

This is a chilling and powerful story. All the Kubu stories are wonderful.

Right now I'm reading Chances Are by Christy Reece, the newest in her Last Chance Rescue series (romantic suspense). I just finished reading Gallagher's Pride and Gallagher's Hope by MK McClintock. They're historical fiction and I really got into the stories, but they have some surprise endings!

I just finished Blowback by Brad Thor (his April challenge book - I got bogged down in another book and got behind) and am now reading his May challenge book: Takedown. Having read them both before, I'm still finding they keep my interest. Next on my list is The Tiger: A True Story of Vengeance and Survival. Just looked up The Supremes at Earl's ... and it looks fascinating. Great article at Chicago Trib about the book. Not sure if the url will translate here:

In the U.S., we tend to break crime fiction into mysteries and thrillers, Nan. In Britain, it's crime fiction, which I think is much better. Then you don't hae to decide where it fits.

Lesa said...

Mrs. Max, Thanks for the link! And, I wanted to thank everyone who wrote about what they're reading! I'm nosy that way.

I'm reading an ARC of Darynda Jones newest book
Fifth Grade Past the Light

I'm also reading The Soprano Sorceress by L E Modesitt JR.

Just finished both of Sara J. Henry's mysteries, "Learning to Swim" and "A Cold and Lonely Place." Read them out of order, but that turned out okay. Can't wait for the next in the series.

Two authors on my "want to read list and haven't had time, Darynda Jones & Sara J. Henry. I need to get to both of them!
