What are You Reading?

I spent yesterday reading a book for a Library Journal book review, so I didn't have time to finish the
next book for here. I'm reading By the Book, in which writers talk about literature and the literary life. Sixty-five authors have discussed that topic for The New York Times Book Review.

We're all busy this time of year. Have you had time to read anything? What are you reading right now? Or, what are you looking forward to reading when everything gets a little quieter?

I'm in the middle of Seth Rudetsky's "Seth's Broadway Diary, Volume I," which I asked for and received for Christmas. I listen to Seth regularly on Sirius' Broadway channel--he is a Broadway insider with knowledge of just about everything Broadway-related, and with a wicked sense of humor. LOVE IT! I recently finished Norman Lear's "Even This I Get to Experience" and Lisa Scottoline's "Betrayed," both highly recommended.

Lesa said...

Oooh, Margie. That sounds like a book I'd enjoy. I'll have to look for it. I'm glad you've been reading books you highly recommend, but it's that Broadway one that intrigues me.

Currently reading "Death of a Village" by M.C. Beaton, "Big Little Lies" by Liane Moriarty, and "Everything Changes" by Jonathan Tropper. The last one is for a book club I belong to.

I just finished Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn and started Raven Black: Book One of the Shetland Island Quartet by Ann Cleeves. I started the series on the fifth book (confused?), Dead Water, but set it aside to read the quartet in order first! Next on my list is The Silkworm by Robert Galbraith—not sure though. I liked the first in the series and want to continue with these new characters. They are fascinating. I rather like JK Rowling's adult books.

Lesa said...

Did you like Gone Girl, Reine? I've read 2 of Gillian Flynn's books, including that one. Not a fan. I read, and liked, Ann Cleeves' quartet. Haven't read JK Rowling's adult books yet, but hear good things.

I hope it's been good reading, Mary!

Lesa, with That one book, I felt cheated with each twist and turn from the first "reveal" and onward. In the end I felt like I'd been led by the nose over the river and through the woods until the author figured out where to go and never did. The other books I loved. I'm glad I'm not a reviewer.
