Where do the weeks go? It’s Wednesday again 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? The Casual Vacancy, which received a lot of flak for its bevy of unlikable characters, but I’m liking them so far. Not sure what it says about me, but I love the small-town politics and intrigue. Listening to the 3rd installment of the Flavia de Luce series, A Red Herring Without Mustard, and enjoying it immensely. Flavia always brings a smile to my face. Also from J.K. Rowling, my sons and I are on the last disc of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. We are definitely on the edge of our seats at the moment. These books are a real thrill.
What did you recently finish reading? Finished an advanced copy of a disturbing new memoir, With or Without You, by Dominca Ruta. Sometimes reading about another person’s crazy scary childhood makes me feel like my life has pretty much been a cakewalk. Also read The Newlyweds, which was a very interesting novel about a Bengali bride trying to make a marriage and life in America work, all the while missing her family in Bangladesh. (That is a really simple sentence about a really complex book.)
What do you think you’ll read next? Eager to start This is How You Lose Her on audio and The Revised Fundamentals of Caregiving in hardback. I’ve been wanting to read both for a long time.
What are your W…W…W… titles?

Currently = Finishing up Harry Potter
Finished = Cutting for Stone
Going to read = Anthem and gone Girl
I’m not familiar with Anthem, but I was a big fan of Gone Girl (me and milllions of others that is)
Never sure what I’m going to read until I actually pull something off the shelf and start reading.
Currently in the middle (ok fine, first quarter) of Les Miserables! Finally! I am LOVING it so far. Just finished The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry and next…I feel like I had a plan after this but I’m probably going to see what my brain is like post-Les Miserables. Something easy for my brain? I do really want to get going on Far From The Tree though. But I also have an Agatha Christie or Camilla Lackberg waiting on the shelf…
I’m eager to follow your Les Miz journey. Sorry I haven’t read any of the others, but I do think you may want to opt for something a little lighter.
I’m not sure how to write about Les Miserables actually! I tried this last year with War and Peace and then of course I NEVER GOT TO FINISH IT. Still drives me crazy – is there no quality control to ensure that sections of pages aren’t missing?
I think it will come down to something brain easy next for sure. My poor brain can only handle so much.
