Yikes! I almost missed Wednesday again. Luckily, I still have time to play a little book game. Just answer the following three (3) questions…
• What are you currently reading? • What did you recently finish reading? • What do you think you’ll read next?
What are you currently reading? Reading The Forgetting Tree by Tatjana Soli. I loved her book The Lotus Eaters so I was eager to follow up with this one. About 150 pages in a liking it very much. Just when I thought I knew where the story was going, she surprised me. Listening to Fool by the hilariously dirty-mouthed Christopher Moore. The writing is laugh-out-loud, made all the better by the narration of Euan Morton. A true delight
What did you recently finish reading? Finished reading Where’d You Go Bernadette, which I liked, but didn’t love. It felt like something I viewed from afar instead of sinking into. Clever, but not totally engaging. The same might be true for the audio book I finished. The Weird Sisters seemed to go on forever despite characters I liked and a good deal of smart writing.
What do you think you’ll read next? I just picked up Astray, a new short story collection from Emma Donoghue. I loved Room, so I’ll probably read this next even though I also have Chris Cleave’s Gold which I have waited a long time to start.
What are your W…W…W… titles?

Currenty reading Brideshead Revisited. It’s been on my list for a while and I love crossing books off my To Read list. Before that I read Mozart’s Sister which I really didn’t enjoy. And next I think I will read Tara Road by Maeve Binchy because it’s in my library books pile!
I’ve never read Binchy — which seems pretty unbelievable now that I say it.
I hadn’t either. Had always assumed (wrongly, as is so often the case these days!) that she was a romance novelist. But then my book club harangued me about never having read any and now I’m on my second one. I think that if you like Marian Keyes, you will enjoy Binchy.
I will definitely give her a chance (someday when I have unlimited reading time I’ll try all the authors I’ve been meaning to try.) Maybe I should make a list of auhors I’ve never read and start tackling them one by one.
