What are you currently reading?

I’m just beginning The Elegance of the Hedgehog by Muriel Barbery (finally,) am still finishing Tinkers by Paul Harding and have started listening to I Am a Soldier Too: The Jessica Lynch Story by Rick Bragg.

What did you recently finish reading?

Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn was just as trippy as everyone who has read has said, complete with despicable characters and lots of intrigue.  The link goes through to my review on goodreads.

What do you think you’ll read next?

I want to read David Benioff’s 25th Hour, as I liked his book City of Thieves so much!  Maybe the Edward Norton movie will follow soon afterward.

Right now, I’m listening to Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn during my commute. It is a good book but frustrating at the same time, because the two main characters are pretty despicable. I am also reading Tinkers by Paul Harding but haven’t gotten that far into it. There was a quick part about the dying man’s long-ago experience in the woods that blew me away, so I hope there are more moments like that one.

The two children’s books I got on Kindle free for my six-year old son are so bad I can’t even mention the titles here, because I’m too embarrassed. Think toilet humor.
What do you think you’ll read next?
My library reservation for The Elegance of the Hedgehog by Muriel Barbery is still outstanding, and I’m getting kind of aggravated. Many people have recommended it, but I’m too cheap to buy it outright since I don’t know how much I’ll like it.

What are you currently reading?

I’m listening to Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn on CD and liking it just as much as everyone said I would (so far).  It takes places in a fictitious Missouri town and was written by a Kansas City native, so how she treats the setting and characters is important to me.  The Kindle sample of The Elegance of the Hedgehog is tiding me over until my library reserve is delivered.  I’m not very patient!

What did you recently finish reading?

Mothers and Sons by Colm Toibin wasn’t what I thought it would be, much less sentimental and a pretty bizarre grouping of stories in comparison to each other.  I love Irish authors and stories of Ireland and was not disappointed there by a different style.

What do you think you’ll read next?

A borrowed book on top of my “tbr” pile that I’ve wanted to get into is Tinkers by Paul Harding.

Now I’m on the next-to-the-last in the Silo pre-quels with Hugh Howey’s Second Shift – Order (Wool #7).  It’s been a long journey, even if I did like the first of the series better.  I am finally starting to get into The End of Your Life Book Club by Will Schwalbe that is our next book club pick, although it’s been slowing going.  Anyone who has read my list during the last month is probably thinking, “Finish it already!”

What did you recently finish reading?

I’m on the last disc of listening to The Bell Jar by Slyvia Plath and so will call it done.  The book is pretty much what I’ve heard, at least as far as evoking emotion in reaction to Esther’s pain, so I can now appreciate what others have claimed it to be.

What do you think you’ll read next? 

We’re supposed to get bad weather, so I may start Tinkers by Paul Harding if the power and the charge on my Kindle go out indefinitely.  If the electricity holds up, I may listen to Snow Child by Paul Harding since I have it checked out from the library.
