It’s been awhile since I’ve done one of these & I’m all over the place with my tastes. It’s really not uncommon for me to have four new books going at once in four different genres & then pull out an old faithful with a broken spine & dog-ear pages. Doug always laughs that a) I always read the last chapter first because I hate surprises & b) he doesn’t know how I keep the stories straight. Thank God I can keep them straight, otherwise we’d have Madeline L’Engle making spaghetti in a distopian farmyard where cows rule.
Sounds like a bad drug trip, right?
I’ve been waiting almost a year for this bad boy to come out, the sequal to Divergent. Basically, it’s another distopian society novel that is set in Chicago & everyone is divided into “factions” based on personality. To me, Tris makes Katniss looks like a pipsqueak (well, book 2 & book 3 Katniss). I’ve been sitting in the cafeteria/sunshine/office nomming on my lunch while reading it on my Kindle app for the past 3 days.
Next up is the fabulous Scary Mommy, who wrote her first book. I cannot wait to dig into this one as I have always admired Jill’s incredible way of making motherhood hilarious. p.s. I am so stoked by all the bloggers coming out with books these days – Kelle Hamptom, The Bloggess, Nie Nie, Jill…
My sister-in-law recommended this author to me at the beach in August 2011. I ordered this book a few months ago & have yet to pick it up. Has anyone else read her novels?
Of course the absolutely darling Ree Drummond & her second cookbook. I’ve poured over the pages & we’ve already made the cauliflower, which was DELICIOUS.
Last up is the peace for my soul, soaking in words of Madeline L’Engle. She is fast becoming one of my favorites although I wasn’t wild about her books as a child. While her poetry is like a balm, this book delves into Christians as creatives & artists. I’m not too far into yet.
What are you reading these days?
