What Are You Reading?

This was supposed to be a review of Juliet Blackwell's novel, The Paris Key. Would you believe the
review didn't get written because I spent forty-five minutes looking for a key last night? Talk about irony.

So, TOMORROW, I'll review Juliet's novel, which is not a mystery, although there are mysterious elements. Aren't there always mysterious elements when it comes to life? Like - where's that missing key that I can't find?

In the meantime, what are you reading today? I haven't asked that lately, so why don't we share? I'd love to know what's keeping you busy this weekend.

I'm almost finished with The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss. In the pipeline I have
The Courtesan by Alexandra Curry
Harriet Wolf's Seventh Book of Wonders by Julianna Baggott

Jeffrey Meyerson said...

Allen Eskens, The Life We Bury. This is a terrific first novel, a trade paperback original set in Minnesota. His new book is coming out next month.

Also Jonathan Carroll's short story collection, The Panic Hand. Plus Jonathan Yardley's Second Reading: Notable and Neglected Books Revisited.

Just started reading A Strange Kind of Love, a very early (1959) Lawrence Block novel written under the pen name Sheldon Lord.

Just finished Louise Penny's The Nature of the Beast --- fabulous! Will probably start The Bullet by Mary Louise Kelly next and then Kent Haruf's Our Souls at Night. Love three day weekends to read and relax.

I'm with Tricia! I love a three day weekend for reading and relaxing. And, I appreciate the time you all took to stop by, and tell us what you're reading. I finished Julieit's book, and I'm reading Shane Gericke's The Fury. Glad you loved Louise's book, Tricia. I need to read The Life We Bury. Thanks for the help, everyone. And, I found the key!

I’m reading Angel Dance by M. D. Grayson. This is the first book in the Danny Logan mystery series. I'd already read book #2 and liked it, so backwards I went and then perhaps forwards into the series—haven't yet decided. Decent mysteries, although I find the characters to be just one step up from hormone driven high schoolers in some respects. Oh how I long for a current day Rex Stout.

Lesa said...

Oh, I so agree, Mrs. Mac - a modern day Rex tout old be wonderful!

i'm reading Sue Grafton's X, and I just bought The Paris Key.

Relic, by Preston & Child. I started with the last five books of the series then went back to the beginning. These are real page turners. Also they are good to listen to all your sewing or driving.

I'm reading Melanie Sumner's "How to Write a Novel: A Novel." Loving it!

I am almost done with The Lord of the Wings by Donna Andrews. Not sure what I will be starting next. It is so hot here in Central Ohio it is a good weekend to stay in the air conditioning to read and watch TV at night. We've been enjoying Kate Winslet in Mildred Pierce from Netflix. Happy weekend to you Lesa!

I am reading Mhairi McFarlane's "It's Not Me It's You". I probably don't fit the demographic audience but some picked it up when I saw it had a blurb by Marian Keyes and it does have some laugh out loud lines so far. I have Amy Stewart's "Girl With a Gun" waiting for me at the library. Saving Kent Haruf's "Our Souls at Night". Does anyone else save books to read because you don't want them to be over?

Lesa said...

Thanks, everyone! Enjoy a weekend of good books! And, Kathleen? I always save Louise Penny's until the last minute because I know it will be another year until the next Armand Gamache book.
