Hello, reader friends! A quick post today, as it's been a busy (but fun) weekend around here with my menfolk. We celebrated the fact that we live in Rochester and it snows every.single.day. by going to the local Winter Fest yesterday, and I think we are all tired out! Small Fry has discovered a deep love of sledding, and my husband and I have the sore arms from toting his sled up and down the hill to prove it. My husband also has the day off today, so we are enjoying a little extra family time on this long weekend.
As for what I'm reading these days...my nightstand is about to fall over from the weight, people! Here's what's going:
1. Moby Dick by Herman Melville
I've been in the midst of this since mid-December. I like to slow-read my classics. I'm about halfway through. Some parts are, admittedly, sleep-inducing, but the majority of it is pretty good. I'm keeping notes for a future review. It will
2, The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins
I heard through the blogger grapevine that this has the potential to be "the Gone Girl of 2015". If that is not true, people (AHEM, Jennifer) need to choose their words more carefully. Because I think we all know the best way to get me to drop everything and read something is to compare it to Gone Girl. My verdict is still out, but stay tuned.
3. The Last Breath by Kimberly Belle
Reading this for a book tour at the end of the month. A little more romantical than what I usually choose, but I'm still enjoying the mystery and intrigue of it so far.
Also on my nightstand but not started yet...
1. Dead Wake by Erik Larson
I have an ARC of this one and I am SO EXCITED to get started on it soon!
2. Burial Rites by Hannah Kent
Picked it up from the library because I've heard nothing but good things...it's due back in 2 weeks...I'm sure I'll get to it, right?
3. The Book of Unknown Americans by Cristina Henriquez
Not physically on my nightstand yet, but my book club just chose it as our next pick, so I've got a hold in for it at the library.
Reading is out of control right now, friends! But the great thing is, these are all excellent books so far. Too many excellent books is NEVER a bad thing.
What are you reading this week?
