What Are You Reading?

The book club I belong to met last night to select our titles for 2015. Between that, and coming home to the college bowl game, I didn't have time to finish my book. I'm reading When Books Went to War by Molly Guptill Manning about books and World War II.

So, what are you reading right now? Or, what did you finish over the weekend? I'd love to know!

I'm reading an ARC of Second Life. It's by the author of Before I Go To Sleep.

Just started Station Eleven.

Lesa said...

Oh, I saw that Watson had a new book, Lori. Hope you like it!

Lesa said...

I've heard lots of good things about Station Eleven, Holdenj.

I finished reading Cradle to Grave by Eleanor Kuhns over the weekend--a period piece and the latest in her Will Rees series. I've just started The Rosie Effect by Graham Simsion, the sequel to my favorite read of 2014, The Rosie Project. I know it won't be as good, but I'm enjoying it so far. Maybe I'll get some reading done today, as I am home sick (chills and cold symptoms). I almost never take a sick day, so I have to take advantage of it, right?

I've been on a non-fiction kick of late. Am almost finished with Sonia Choquette's Walking Home:A Pilgrimage from Humbled to Healed. Initially, I wasn't sure I'd be able to finish it, but I kept on & am glad I did. I am fascinated by books about Camino de Santiago and those who walk it. I saw The Way on Netflix (great movie too) and became so interested in reading people's reasons for walking the Camino. I'm already looking for the next pilgrimage book.

Lesa said...

You do have to take advantage, Margie. Unfortunately for me, when I'm sick enough to stay home, I usually run a fever, and have to sleep the day away. I hope you get better soon, but at least continue to be able to read!

Lesa said...

I'll read an occasional nonfiction, Kay, but, as you can tell by my reviews, not often. Although I am reading When Books Went to War right now. I'll finish that tonight. Hmmm - my nonfiction reading tends to be about books, memoirs or WWII.

I am reading The Martian. So far, so good.

I loved When Books Went to War. I'm currently reading The Source by James Michener and getting ready to start Local Souls by Allan Gurganus for next month's book club.

I'm reading THE WHITES by Harry Brandt, a.k.a. Richard Price and I just started the audio for THE STORIED LIFE OF A. J. FIKRY by Gabrielle Zevin. I need to get some knitting projects done, so I may get through this one quickly. :-)

Tracy G said...

I just finished The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry while I was traveling this weekend to see my great-aunt, who passed away this morning. I had no idea when I picked that book to take with me on the plane that it would be the perfect thing to read as I said goodbye to a woman who lived a great life. I will be recommending that book for years to come!

Trisha said...

I finally read "Fun Home" by Alison Bechdel over the weekend. It was amazing.

Cindy D said...

I loved AFTER THE WAR IS OVER by Jennifer Robson. Also reread ME BEFORE YOU by Jojo Moyes because I am leading book group discussion on it on Thursday.

Lesa said...

For those of you reading The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry, it's our first book for our book group this year, and I'm discussing that list on Thursday. Thank you for sharing the books you just finished, the ones you're reading, and what they mean to you.

Lesa said...

Tracy, I'm sorry for the loss of a woman who meant so much to you. At the same time, I'm happy there was the perfect book at that time. You're not the only one to need, and find, the right book.

Finished With Baited Breath by Lorraine Bartlett yesterday. Reading Dying to Read by Lorena McCourtney and Reconstructing Amelia by Kimberly McCreight, and in the background working my way through the rest of the Outlander series.

Carol N Wong said...

I finished reading Death Never Sleeps by E.J. Simon and starting the sequel, Death Logs In. Love technothrillers. This is one of the rare times that I can read two books in consequetive order!! Thrilled.

Lesa said...

Ah, another multi-book reader at the same time, Grandma Cootie. To me, it's a way to read more books!

Lesa said...

Carol, Did you enter this week's giveaway? It's for a techno-thriller. I don't normally read them, but wanted to remind you.

Carol N Wong said...

Yes, I did. I just checked. It was in my "sent" part of my e-mails. I have never been able to read science fiction but I am fine with technothrille

I've been trying to catch up on some arcs I've gotten through netgalley. A lot of them, truthfully, I've tried and put them aside. I did just finish reading Jennifer Bohnet's A French Pirouette and enjoyed it. Light and comfy. Next up is going to be something a bit "meatier" - Susan Hill's latest in the Simon Serrallier series, "The Soul of Discretion."

Lesa said...

Don't you hate it, Kaye, when you go through a stack and nothing seems to fit your mood? I know it's just me, and I'm not really in the mood for anything. Sometimes light and comfy will get me back in the swing of things.

Kaye Barley said...

I do hate it, Lesa. And I've already dropped the Susan Hill novel. I had forgotten that I didn't particularly care for the last one, and this one isn't going to hold my attention at all. I used to love Simon, but lately he's become (to me) shallow and one dimensional, selfish and boring. sigh.
