Re: November?! What are you reading?

I finished Nine Perfect Strangers and while it went quickly, I didn't really enjoy it. Maybe my expectations were too high --Syl YMMV.

Re: November?! What are you reading?

syl- If you like Rebecca, you should look at The Winters by Lisa Gabriele which is a modern retelling that I heard about on a podcast. Haven't read either so can't personally vouch for them. I love Seven Husbands -- it's my go-to recommend to people this year. Hope you like it. I'm reading Liane Mor...

Re: October! What are you reading?

I finished The Skies Belong to Us - it was ok. Not sure I would recommend it. I also read some organizational type book this weekend which taught me nothing. :| I read Waiting for Eden which wasn't up to the hype. *sigh* I have a small pile waiting for me and I hesitate to grab anything at this poin...

Re: October! What are you reading?

I finished Dry by Neal and Jarrod Schusterman which I really liked. Water dries up in CA - people start rioting, etc. I think it's YA. I started The Skies Belong to Us which is a non-fiction book about the plane hijacking era of the 60s and 70s before there was any security at airports. So far so go...

October! What are you reading?

I'm reading a YA book, To All the Boys I've Loved Before by Jenny Han. It's part of a trilogy and is also on Netflix. So far so good.

I read Atomic City Girls by Janet Beard this weekend and I really liked it. I'm enjoying historical fiction lately.

Re: September: what are you reading?

I read Vox by Christina Dalcher which is a dystopian novel in which females can only speak 100 words a day. I liked the beginning half but then they started talking science and it wasn't sound science so it sorta turned me off.

Not sure what's next....

Re: September: what are you reading?

I read Smothered by Autumn Chiklis this weekend (daughter of the main character of The Shield). It had great buzz but I didn't like it. I've had a few 2 star books lately which is a bummer. :(

I have a few library books left in my pile so not sure what will be next.

Re: September: what are you reading?

Spudd -- I thought they did a surprisingly good job on the movie but yeah...the book is better. The science is right on too. I'm reading the new Mary Kubica which is good but there's an insomnia part to it and I can't imagine not trying to sleep or going to a dr or something. I'm only 50 pages in so...

Re: August! What are you reading?

I just finished The Wife by Alafair Burke which I really liked.

I'm currently reading Emergency Contact by Mary HK Choi. It's a YA novel but it's very well written. So far so good. Hope I'm not disappointed later.

I finished Love Walked In by Marisa de los Santos which I really liked.

I'm reading All These Beautiful Strangers by Elizabeth Klehfoth which I just happened to pick up at the library. Takes place at a prep school - it's well written and I'm liking it!

Re: July! What are you reading?

Just finished Bring Me Back by BA Paris which I liked but didn't love.

I also read Design Your Day by Claire Diaz-Ortiz on the train yesterday. Nothing new. :(

Up next is Love Walked In by Marisa de los Santos which is a bit different than I've been reading which is good.

I'm currently reading The Book of Essie which I'm really liking. I recently finished the recent Elin Hilderbrand The Perfect Couple which was just meh. I'm pretty disappointed because I ended up taking only 2 books to TX last week and I couldn't get into either. When Will There Be Good News by Kate ...

I hadn't read The Good Daughter -- I did end up liking it.

Re: June: what are you reading?

I just abandoned The Glitch at about 50 pages in. It was just annoying me.

I started The Good Daughter by Karin Slaughter. It seems familiar to me but it's not on my reading log as having read it. Hmmm...

I just finished Class Mom by Laurie Gelman which was really funny. I didn't love the story behind it but the class mom stuff was hilarious. I don't know that Marie comes here but she should read it. I have a stack of all similar books (smart chick lit) but I'm in the mood for thriller so we'll have ...

I didn't think that book should have been extended. #moneygrab I'm reading Allison Winn Scott's latest - Between Me and You. I'm really liking it. I read Best Day Ever by Kaira Rouda this weekend.

Re: May: What are you reading?

I finished My Lovely Wife in the Psych Ward - definitely interesting and sad and honest.

I also ready Where They Found Her by Kimberly McCreight which was good.

I'm halfway through My Absolute Darling by Gabriel Tallent. I started today. The topic is a bit hard but the writing is good.
