The move is finished, the boxes are all gone, and my books are safely on their shelves. Maybe this latest transition will find me (finally) back to reading and posting?
Thanks, as always to Sam @ Taking on a World of Words and this wonderful WWW post to keep me semi-organized. If you want to join me, just answer the three questions below about how your reading is going this week and leave a link to your post in the comments for others to admire. Don’t forgt to check all the other participants. It is the #1 way I keep my TBR overflowing!
WHAT AM I CURRENTLY READING?
During the chaos of the move I found that reading just one book and listening to just one audiobook was much easier to track than my usual four-at-a-time system. Right now, I am gobbling up Cinders and Sparrows by Stefan Bachman, a middle grade fantasy / suspense about an orphan girl returned home to her haunted castle and learning the history of her family.
My audiobook right now is Talking to Strangers by Malcolm Gladwell. Gladwell argues that there is something wrong with the tools and strategies we use to communicate and understand people. I am nearly half way through this book and, while I don’t agree with all the authors theories, I am deeply fascinated by his arguments.
WHAT DID I RECENTLY FINISH READING?
Recently, I finished the most fascinating story of Grace Huminston or Mrs. Sherlock Holmes by Brad Ricca. The story of a female lawyer who was the first female US District Attorney and an active detective in solving crimes and freeing innocent people in the early 1900s consumed me.
When You Reach Me by Rebecca Stead has been on my shelf forever. When I moved I just sat down one night and read the whole thing. This middle grade mystery is so good and if you haven’t already had the chance, do yourself a favor and read it already. It was probably an hour of reading but I was completely transported.
I also read Love Your Life by Sophie Kinsella. I adore Kinsella’s books. They are light and fun. This one was no exception but I think I am growing tired of Kinsella’s main female character – you know, the one who completely misunderstands life and has to unravel everything before she figures it out? It works nearly all of the time but, perhaps, not completely with this one. I still enjoyed it but not as much as Twenties Girl, The Undomesticated Godess, or My Not so Perfect Life.
WHAT WILL I READ NEXT?
I have no idea! I am nearly half way through the year of Joyful reading and loving not making plans!
Tell me, please! What’s on your WWW?
