It’s the first Wednesday of 2013. You know what that means? (Really, it means back to work and the end of vacation for me, but it’s also a great day for a book post). Feel free to play along. 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? I’m half-way through The Twelve Tribes of Hattie by Ayana Mathis. The book was a Christmas gift, well-chosen and very engaging. Still trying to finish the audio version of Laura Moriarty‘s The Chaperone. This is a LONG book — really good, but I’m ready for it to be over.
What did you recently finish reading? Finished Michael Chabon‘s Telegraph Avenue, which I wanted to love, but didn’t. Despite his often brilliant prose, I found the details and cultural references bogged the narrative down and prevented me from really engaging with the characters. On the other hand, I kicked off 2013 with a graphic-style memoir, Fun Home: A Family Tragicomic. I love a good memoir and Alison Bechdel‘s coming-out story fit the bill, although I’m not sure about the comic-strip approach.
What do you think you’ll read next? I’m determined to read Kate Morton soon. I also have an ARC of With or Without You. being released on February 26, that I should read and review. It’s so great to feel like 2013 is wide open with book possibilities.
What are your W…W…W… titles?
