What Are You Reading?

It's a long weekend. I didn't have time to read last night, but I'll have three days to catch up this
weekend. I'm reading a fun romance, Unleashing Mr. Darcy by Teri Wilson. It's Pride and Prejudice set in the world of dog shows.

Tell us what you're reading. I'll be around most of today to discuss books.

I just finished reading Horde by Ann Aguirre. I'm going to start Pecan Pies and Homicides by Ellery Adams.

I'm reading In The Company of the Courtesan by Sarah Dunant.

Rosemary said...

I'm still reading Greenery Street by Denis Mackail, because I keep going off at tangents.....

Karen B said...

I'm in the middle of THE OTHER WOMAN by Hank Phillippa Ryan. It's terrific!!!

Mark Baker said...

I'm actually reading my first non-mystery of the year. It's Gladiator: My Story of 'Roids, Rage, and Redemption by Dan "Nitro" Clark. Yes, he was on the original American Gladiators. It's an interesting read.

Jane R said...

I'm about a third of the way through G.M. Malliet's newest book Pagan Spring. I really like her style of writing.

Sandy,

Pecan Pies and Homicide! I love every one of Ellery Adams' series, and she's getting ready to start a new one. I'll be interested to see if I like it as well as her other ones.

Lesa said...

I haven't read that Dunant novel. I hope you enjoy it, Page.

Lesa said...

Makes me wonder if you'll finish it, Rosemary. When I go off on tangents, I don't always end up finishing the book.

Lesa said...

It is terrific, isn't it, Karen? I've liked all of Hank's books.

Lesa said...

I used to watch that original Gladiators series once in a while, Mark. It sounds interesting.

Lesa said...

I like her style, too, Jane. I'm always ready for the next one from G.M. Malliet.

Wendy Allex said...

I'm reading The Circle, by Dave Eggers. It's creepy, and can't end well!

Rosemary said...

Yes, you're so right Lesa - the books I end up paying fines on at the library are always the ones I've never finished (or sometimes even started). But I'll try to get to the end of this one - it's rare for me not to like a Persephone Press book.

Kaye Barley said...

I'm reading an ARC of Anne Fortier's THE LOST SISTERHOOD. It's about a young scholar on a journey to prove that the legendary warrior women known as the Amazons actually existed. Loving it!

Margie B said...

Just finished The Rosie Project by Graham Simsion on my Kindle--extremely entertaining. Currently I'm reading the The Invention of Wings by Sue Monk Kidd--a fascinating look at two girls--one privileged, one a slave--before the abolition of slavery.

Naomi Johnson said...

I just started Adrian McKinty's THE COLD, COLD GROUND.

Lesa said...

Oh, I'm not into creepy, Wendy. I hope you're enjoying it, though.

Lesa said...

I've quite pushing myself, Rosemary, to finish a book, unless I absolutely have to read it for some reason or another. Too many good ones out there.

Lesa said...

Great, Kaye! I love to hear that people are loving the book they're reading!

Lesa said...

A friend of mine is reading The Invention of Wings, Margie, and liking it much more than The Mermaid's Chair.

Lesa said...

I just brought one of McGinty's books home from the library, Naomi. It's on my TBR pile.

Just finished "A Killing at Cotton Hill" by Terry Shames. Loved it so much that halfway through the book, I ordered "The Last Death of Jack Harbin." And now I see you reviewed that one; don't know how I missed it. I've just begun Louise Penney's "How the Light Gets In" and as always, I'm in awe of her grasp of human nature! I'm gearing up for Left Coast Crime.

Carol N Wong said...

Just finished "Fallen Beauty by Erica Robuck. In the middle of "Beowulf, Explosives Detective Dog" by Ronig Kenig.
Started "In Transit" by Kathleen Gerard and "Saving Each Other" by Victoria and Ali Guthy.

Ricky Bush said...

Just finished Grisham's Sycamore Row and about to finish Stephen King's Dr. Sleep. Just started Irish writer, Kevin Barry's City of Bohane.

Judy Stewart said...

Per your recommendation, I am reading "A Killing at Cotton Hill ". It is great and I will buy the next one also.

I bought an ebook on my Nook but wish I'd bought a volume I could pass on to someone when I am finished. I don't need a collection of electronic books.

Terry Shames writes very well.
