Some Light Reading

Right now, the basket of books beneath our coffee table is full to overflowing.  So don’t you worry about me.  I’ve got thousands of pages yet to go. 😉

How I’ve managed to opine on these books without giving any real plot points away is somewhat beyond me, but I guess that’s just how we’re weaving the web, this go-round.

  1. Just read Gone Girl. I’m still thinking about it, so that’s a good sign. Pretty fast read. Would definitely recommend. Also finished Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking. Interesting book, and makes me feel better about myself for feeling anti-social sometimes.

    Just started reading Anna Karenina, along with One Bite at a Time: 52 Projects for Making Life Simpler and a book on dental practice management. Also recently downloaded to my Kindle: The Family Sabbatical Handbook; Travellin’ Mama: A Parent’s Guide to Ditching the Routine, Seeing the World and Taking the Kids Along for the Ride; London 2012: Frommers Express.

  2. Home Front showed great promise but I have to say it was the least favorite of her books. And usually I love them!

    And Sarah’s Key? We are on a different page for the first time Kat. I really thought it was fascinating!!

    I’m in the middle of “The Good Father” and it is amazing. Diane Chamberlain is the new Jodi Picoult…

  3. I’m so glad for this post – I’ve been in a deep reading rut! After I finished Book One of Game of Thrones and all the Hunger Game books, I’ve been stumped! I need a break before launching into Game of Thrones again, so I will be adding my name to the wait list at the library for these recommendations. Thanks!

  5. I’ve been letting my reading suffer in order to catch up on some knitting. Although I think I over-knitting because my hand really hurts, so I may have to return to reading. Figures.

  6. You are so on the money with Kristin Hannah! Every darn time I read a book of hers I have to blink it back…and to be honest, I do not find her writing THAT good. Kinda like a Lifetime movie. Before you know it you are so invested that you have to know what happens and you always go back for more.

    I just read The Fault of Our Stars by John Green. It’s a young adult book, but it is so beautifully written. You will laugh and cry all at once. I urge to check it out!

    I also just picked up Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn and I am excited to dive in.
