What are You Reading?

Three later nights than I'd like to have in a row, and running home at lunch to feed cats because I had meetings, means I haven't yet had a chance to finish Jenn McKinlay's Cloche and Dagger. I'm planning to finish it tomorrow. McKinlay, the New York Times bestselling author of the Library Lovers' Mystery Series an the Cupcake Bakery mysteries, launches a new series featuring an American whose love life becomes prime fodder on the Internet. Her cousin invites her to London, since they co-own a hat shop there, but she finds her cousin missing when she arrives. I'm not giving away any more of the storyline because I hope to have the review up soon.


In the meantime, let's talk about what you're reading. What book has your attention right now? I'd love to know!

I'm re-reading Absolutely, Positively by Heather Webber. It's a good light summer read.

Lesa said...

Must be a good one, Sandy, since you said you're re-reading. I'm glad you have a good book for today!

I'm reading The Yonahlossee Riding Camp for Girls by Anton Disclafani.

Lesa said...

Oh, how are you liking it, Kathy? I've heard mixed comments about The Yonahlossee Riding Camp for Girls.

I'm still trying to get through The Telling Room by Michael Paterniti. I've had to stop and read some other books, but figured I'd get back to it over the weekend. I hate it when, with all the books sitting on my shelves and ereaders, that I can't get interested in anything!

Lesa said...

Oh, that's "telling" right there, Karen, that you're trying to get through the book. I have it on a pile, and I'm interested, but we'll see.

I know. Isn't it frustrating? As much as I love books, sometimes I just need to spend a night playing solitaire or watching TV.

The Black Path by Asa Larsson
Story of Civilization by Will Durant

I gave up on THE HIGHWAY by CJ Box. One of the characters was too evil for me.

Lesa said...

Oh, I do the same thing, Page, when I'm not reading to deadline. I read multiple books at the same time.

Lesa said...

Gotcha, Cindy. I totally understand. Sometimes it's just too much to read.

Patricia Stoltey said...

I was reading nonfiction until today, but am ready to start Stuart Neville's Ratlines. I've been reading a lot of gritter crime fiction lately.

Lesa said...

Ah, gritty. I read some once in a while, Patricia. I'm going to miss Leighton Gage for gritty mysteries.

I'm reading the The Cuckoo's Calling by Robert Galbraith a.k.a. JK Rowling on Audible.

Liz said...

I just picked up Kathleen Ernst's third book in her Chloe Ellefson mystery series: "The Light Keeper's Legacy." I highly recommend this series to readers of cozies that are willing to get just a touch "grittier."

Liz said...

p.s. very fun discussion thread. As Lesa knows, I love to see what others are reading.

Ivy said...

I am enjoying Last Wool and Testament by Molly MacRae. It looks like a promising new cozy series.

Carol N Wong said...

I am just starting "The Man Who Died Laughing" by Tarquin Hall.

Melissa Bo said...

I love Jenn McKinlay's Cupcake Bakery mysteries, ( Ive read almost all of them ) -- Im putting this series on my "to be read" list for sure! =)

Im reading a cozy mystery called "Do or Diner" by Christine Wenger.

Lesa said...

Reine, I'll be interested in hearing your reaction to A Cuckoo's Calling.

Lesa said...

Thank you, Liz. I'm not familiar with Kathleen Ernst. I'll have to check out her books. Like you, I love to see what others are reading!

Lesa said...

Ivy,

If you like the first book, the second, Dyeing Wishes, is just as good.

Lesa said...

A friend of mine highly recommends Tarquin Hall, Carol, but I haven't yet had the chance to read his books. Are you enjoying it?

Lesa said...

U have Do or Diner on my TBR pile, Melissa. If you come back, you'll have to let me know what you think.
