What are you reading?

Pregnancy,  childbirth or unrelated.  I need new reading material.  What are you currently reading?

Re: What are you reading?

  • I'll share my book review blog with you, though I need to add a couple books to it tomorrow! The ones I just read are Divergent and Insurgent, which are YAL books. Really liked them.

  • I love getting lost in a good book. In the last month I've read 9 books I'm on my 10th

    all of which are from the young adult section... I'm a sucker for a paranormal romance.

  • Rereading Lonesome Dove, just started The Grift by Debra Ginsberg. I'm enjoying it so far, def less meaty than Lonesome Dove. 
  • I'm currently reading Blackberry Winter by Sarah Jio.  She has 2 other books, The Bungalow and Violets of March, that are both excellent if you like historic fiction.  Over the summer I read A Reliable Wife by Robert Goolrick which was really, really good.  Its quite dark, but excellent.  I could not put it down.  Oh, another great book is The Art of Racing in the Rain!  I loved this book, but its a tear jerker.  I read the first few pages to my DH and even he got teary eyed.

  • Somewhat obsessive reader here-- there is a link to my goodreads shelf in my signature--feel free to peruse.  I am currently reading non-fiction The Zanzibar Chest, by Aiden Hartley.  It is about his childhood and experiences as a journalist in East Africa. 

    I'm also in two book clubs: in the first one we're reading Annabel by Kathleen Winter this month.  We read The History of Love by Nicole Krauss last month, and it was awesome. We previously read Bringing Up Bebe in that book club, and it is a good read too. My other book club is for the sole purpose of reading Infinite Jest by David Foster Wallace by the end of 2013.  I just got my copy from amazon, so I will probably start this week.

    Kids/childbirth related-- I am reading Babywise, Ina May's Guide to Childbirth, WTEWYE and Your pregnancy week by week

    my read shelf:
    Kerry's book recommendations, liked quotes, book clubs, book trivia, book lists (read shelf)

    Haha! This is me exactly. Read Defending Jacob, but my quick reads have been Emily Giffins books! I also want to read Gone Girl.

     Currently reading Outlander and The Devil in Pew Seven. I also just got Womanly Art of Breastfeeding from the library. I plan to scan/peruse that one over the next few weeks.

    Gone Girl

  • I just returned Gone Girl to the library - I couldn't finish it. I wanted to - I wanted to know what ends up happening, but I just couldn't get into it. it sounds like I'm in the minority with that one, though.

    So, I went back to a standby author for me - Clive Cussler. Just finished Arctic Drift....took all of 3 days. Wink

    I'm not sure what I'm going to read next....

  • The Womanly Art of Breastfeeding, by La Leche League, and it is alternately making me glad that I picked it up (learning lots of tips), and INFURIATED by the language choices they often use, which seem to serve the purpose of inciting panic on anybody who can't / doesn't breastfeed, has an epidural, etc. 

    So I am not sure if I recommend it or not.

  • I'm reading The 12 Tribes of Hattie by Ayana Mathis. So far, I'm loving it. I finished three of the Tana French books since December and those were pretty good, with The Likeness being the best of the bunch.

     

    My book blog can be found at http://www.karenthecroccy.com/blog/the-book-project/  ... I have a list of the books I've read over the past few years, some of which have mini reviews with few, if any, spoilers.

    Sounds like my book club list!  I also liked Language of Flowers, but disliked Snow Child.

    At the moment I'm just reading my Hypnobirthing book before starting my next book club book "Hateship, Friendship, Courtship, Loveship, Marriage"

  • I love paranormal romance. The first one I ever read was by Keri Arthur and I was hooked! Recently I've been hooked on Rose Wynters. She just released a new book in her Endurers series called Curvaceous Condemnation. I got it yesterday for $.99 for Kindle and finished it today.
