What are you reading today?

I'm not going to rush to the end of Spider Woman's Daughter just to get the book review written. Anne Hillerman is picking up her father, Tony Hillerman's Leaphorn and Chee series. And, it's terrific. That's all I'm going to say about it, though, until tomorrow.

Instead, I'll ask my favorite question. I even ask this question when we interview candidates for jobs at the library. What are you reading or listening to right now? I love to know what other people are reading.

And, I'll be home most of the day to check back. Thanks for reading with me, and sharing what you're reading!

Hi Lesa.... I'm almost finished with Lowcountry Boil. Terrific first novel by Susan Boyer. I have a stack of books to read so not sure what will be next but I plan to also spend some time at home this weekend so I can start to get caught up with life!

Beth Hoffman said...

I'm finishing up reading "The Husband's Secret" and then I'm going to clean out some closets. LOL

Enjoy your weekend, Lesa!

Lesa said...

Hi, Jane. That is a good book. I'm going to finish this book, and then read up on my iPad so I can take video with it next weekend.

Lesa said...

Tickets to a play tomorrow, Beth. Finishing a good book today, and have OSU football this evening. Good weekend. I hope yours is a good one as well!

I'm getting ready to start Donna Ball's new book, The Hummingbird House.

I'm reading Jeffrey Siger's Mykonos After Midnight. Luckily I'm reading it in my Nook because we lost power last night in a thunderstorm, and I could keep reading! I love this series. Siger's depicts modern Greece wonderfully! The experience is armchair traveling with interesting companions and some suspense.

Just finished Mercy Falls and Copper River - both by William Kent Krueger. This is a terrific series and I think I now have all the books, thanks to a shopping spree at BookCloseOuts (now BookOutlet.)

Trisha Klowak said...

I'm reading the "Kitchen House" :)

TFJ said...

Just started the second book, First Degree, in David Rosenfelt's Andy Carpenter series.

Lesa said...

Thanks, Sandy! I'm going to have to look for The Hummingbird House. I like Donna Ball's books.

Lesa said...

Big Jeffrey Siger fan, here, Nancy, as you probably know. You're right. He does a beautiful job with modern Greece.

Lesa said...

Ashamed to say, Karen, I haven't gotten around to William Kent Krueger. Some day! I know from what everyone says, that I'm missing out.

Lesa said...

Trisha,

Who's the author of Kitchen House?

Lesa said...

Another author, TFJ, that I haven't gotten around to, yet. I don't often read novels involving lawyers. I'm more of a cop/detective fan.

Just finished J. A. Jance's Second Watch. Cried through all the Vietnam story part.

Gave up on Laurie King's Bones of Paris - not in the mood for gruesome.

Currently on Catherine Coulter's The Final Cut, which is great. Good characters, traditional spy/crime drama.

I'm have four books on my review table.

Mary Burton's No Escape
C.L.Parker's A Million Dirty Secrets
Jules Evans' Philosophy for Life and Other Dangerous Situations: Ancient Philosophy for Modern Problems
Anne Katherine Boundaries in an overconnected world

Lesa said...

I have that Catherine Coulter book somewhere in a pile, Judith. Thanks for mentioning it.

Lesa said...

Heavy reading, Page. No wonder you have four books going!

I've been doing some reading for reviews. Ruby Hill by Sarah Ballance (supernatural romance, nice and ghostly short story) and Reclaimed: A Christmas Short Story by Marlis Melton (military romantic suspense). Attended a birthday party last night and have a book signing party this afternoon. A friend wrote and published a book about her dog when he passed. It's his adventures (The Airedale's Tales) as if he were the one writing. Yes, it's a love story.

I am reading "The Tilted World by Tom Franklin and Beth Ann Fennelly and Miss Ann in Harlem by Carla Kaplan.

The author of Kitchen House is Kathleen Grissom. Great reading!

Judy Stewart said...

Antsy Does Time by Neil Shusterman. I am reading lots of young adult and children's books lately.

Lesa said...

Karen, You brought up something I've been wondering about. How soon do people want to read reviews of Christmas books? The book is out because I received it from the library. I just don't know if I should be reviewing it before Halloween.

Lesa said...

I think I'm on hold for The Tilted World, Carol. I hope it's good. Thanks for passing on the information about Kathleen Grissom.

Lesa said...

Lots of adults turning to young adult reading lately, Judy. And, I've been reading children's picture books because I read to a second grade class once a month. Pete the Cat books are going to be fun to do, but their favorite was Wolf is Coming.

Karen C said...

Lesa, I enjoy Christmas books all year round, so I'm probably not a good judge of when people want to read reviews of Christmas books!

Lesa said...

I asked my mother, Karen, who said wait until after Halloween, but then went on to say, well, it is available in the libraries already, and the family was very excited to get the list of Christmas books. So, she said anytime. I just wondered.
