I saw this brief book survey on The Broke and the Bookish today, and I had to repost. An easy way to give you some insight into my latest reading habits.
The book I'm currently reading: Look Again by Lisa Scottoline. I saw a brief summary of this book a year or two ago, and have been dying to read it ever since. Unfortunately, it's not all that I thought it would be, but I have another 100-ish pages for it to change my mind (I'll keep you posted on how that goes).
I'm also listening to The Confession by John Grisham on audiobook, and it's been an excellent way to spend my commutes these last couple of weeks.
The last book I finished: Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman--you saw my happy-customer review here.
The next book I want to read: I am hoping to get my hands on a copy of Emily Giffin's new one, Where We Belong. I'm a big fan of her other work. I've been on the library wait list for a while now, I should be up soon!
The last book I bought: Commencement by J. Courtney Sullivan--I do indeed have a professional life in higher education (book bloggin' JUST DON'T PAY), so books about colleges/universities, undergrads, recent grads, etc. always catch my interest (I Am Charlotte Simmons by Tom Wolfe is one of my absolute favorites, all-time). I haven't read this one yet but it's on my Kindle and I'm looking forward to it.
The last book I was given: Left Neglected by Lisa Genova. Cari gave me this book a few months ago, and it was an excellent recommendation for me. It's about a high-powered working mom whose life is turned upside down when she is in a terrible car accident, leaving her with a traumatic brain injury. The physical and emotional changes she goes through in the novel are amazing. A great read for anyone who loves Jodi-Picoult-style family dramas.
