What Are You Reading?

I know you're disappointed. Today is the day that my monthly book chat should appear featuring mysteries from Penguin's Berkley Prime Crime and Obsidian, and Jinx. But, Penguin changed warehouses last month, and it doesn't seem as if their mailing list is on track yet. Monday, I'll request the April shipment because it hasn't shown up yet. I'm sorry.

And, let's face it. For those of us who are college basketball fans, Thursday through Sunday this week wasn't exactly reading time. I have a pile of books including  Epitaph by Mary Doria Russell, a novel of the O.K. Corral, and the first mystery in a new series, Meow If It's Murder by T.C. LoTempio.


So, what are you reading? Or, are you totally caught up in March Madness?

I'm reading Jarynda Jones' Seventh Grave and No Body. I have many books to read on my bookshelves, just have to pick one or two to read. SO MANY BOOKS, SO LITTLE TIME!! Oh Woe is me :)

I'm reading Jane Casey's THE LAST GIRL and enjoying it very much.

Ah, March Madness - well, Texas lost right away and so that's pretty much it for us. I think the husband has watched a bit more, but he said the others that he was rooting for have also been eliminated.

I'm reading Andrew Klavan's WEREWOLF COP. It's different.

I just finished Lenon Pies and Little White Lies by Ellery Adams which. Enjoyed. Now I'm starting Murder With Fried Chicken and Waffles by A.L. Herbert.

Good morning, everyone! I love to see what you're reading. I'm jealous, Sandy, that you finished the new Ellery Adams. Page, I need to try that Darynda Jones series. Different, huh, Bill? I don't know if that's good or not. I can always find someone, to root against, Kay, if my team' stone. Duke is still in, though, at least for now. That' same fun series, Karen.

I got a few from Penguin, one of which I featured in my post today. Hope your books come soon! In the meantime, enjoy your cozy novel.

I got my package on Thursday, so I'm sure you'll see yours soon.

I just finished "Without Warning" by John Birmingham and am trying to decide which book from all my stacks and ebooks to read next. I'm thinking....Orphan Train.

Lesa said...

Thanks for the notes that your books arrived. I'll give it another day, then, and write if they're not there tomorrow. Thanks. I keep meaning to get to Orphan Train, Patricia, and just haven't. I heard the author speak, and she was very good.

Not interested in basketball in the least, but it's been a busy weekend nonetheless. I finished Brooke Shields' There Was a Little Girl and was very disappointed. I thought it was repetitive, writing was amateurish, and editing was poor. Oh, well . . . Right now I'm enjoying James Grippando's Cane and Abe so things are looking up!

Lesa said...

I thought about reading Brooke Shields' book, Margie. Now, I'm glad I didn't. I'm glad you found something better.

I grew up in Indiana and always got caught up in the March Madness but Texas is a Football state so I off reading my books!

Still reading The Fierce Urgency of Now by Julian E. Zelizer and Mahrob Seraji's Rooftops of Tehran. Both are good reading but take time!

Lesa said...

Totally caught up in March Madness, Carol. I understand what you're saying about good books that take time.

Tucket's Ride by Gary Paulsen. It is Book 3 of a series. It may be geared to ten year olds. I like it.

Lesa said...

I'm glad you like it, Judy. I'm waiting to get Chris Grabenstein's new juv book, The Island of Dr. Libris. Hopefully, today.
