Hello fellow readers! What are you reading this week? Play along with MizB and let us know what you recently finished, what you are currently reading and, if you know, what is up next.
I am taking a class for work today and then I have bookclub afterwards, so I can’t respond and visit until LATE! Sorry about that, but know I am thinking about you all and wondering what wonderful bookish treats you are serving up today while I relearn grammar rules and business writing. 🙂
I finished three things this week – Incarnate by Lawrence Weill, a difficult story about a woman struggling with mental illness and how it affects her and her family. Tangled Threads by Jennifer Estep, the 4th Gin Blanco book which was quite enjoyable action-wise and her personal life is forwarded nicely as well. I also JUST NOW finished A Homemade Life by Molly Wizenberg which is the bookclub pick (and I should have read it by last week, luckily the meeting was postponed). I grabbed it from the library today, and while it is a respectable 313 pages, many of them are wonderful sounding recipes so it was easy to finish quickly. It was lovely and I quite enjoyed her easy to read narrative style, mini-essays about life and food and her love story with her husband. If you like that type of read I recommend it. I haven’t tried the recipes – YET – but one lady is going to make the Chocolate Wedding Cake and another the Ratatouille. Yum! I will let you know…
I am currently reading The Vampire Code by E.C. Adams and am nearly finished, it is pretty fun and the story keeps surprising me when it takes a new turn. It releases on June 1st and I hope to have a review up right around then.
Next up, I need to find where I put and pick up Best Served Cold by Joe Abercrombie, I am half way through and would like to finish and Lady of Devices by Shelley Adina which looks like the beginning to a series of cute YA steampunk.
What are you reading this week? Anything good?
