It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is a place to meet up and share what you have been, are and about to be reading over the week. It’s a great post to organize yourself. It’s an opportunity to visit and comment, and er… add to that ever growing TBR pile! So welcome in everyone. This meme started with J Kaye’s Blog and then was taken up by Sheila from Book Journey. Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn at the Book Date.
Really great books, and I was starting to feel like I’m on a roll with loving all the books I’m reading…but then…something I didn’t love.
I was about 25% into this advanced e galley and I’m not sure I want to keep reading. I’m not in love with the characters and it’s moving a little slow moving up to any major conflict. I may return to this book.
I haven’t actually started either of theses but these are my reading plans for this week. Everyone is raving about Last Christmas in Paris, and I love books written in letters. The Story of Arthur Truluv is from of my favorite authors, Elizabeth Berg, it’s publishing next week, so I am excited to read it.
What can I say? Wiley Cash writes so beautifully and with such a passion for his characters. I am loving this story of Ella May, the struggles of everyone who works in the textile mills and the hope for a better wages, and working conditions the Union gives her and others. The mixed points of view and dual time line just seem to add to this book.
I’ve listened to the first two books in the Winter Series from Elin Hilderbrand, I have the last two in digital book format and they are really delightful holiday reads. The author is also going to be at a book store near me on November 20th and I’d like to meet her.
Lisa Genova‘s book publishes in March, and I look forward to this new one.
The Only Girl in the World is a memoir publishing in December.
I hope you’ve been immersed in a good book or two, so what are you reading?
