Notes of what I'm reading

Rather than cross post every review to both blogs, I have decided to post little notes here and the actual reviews over there.

This begs the question, what AM I reading?

Last weekend I read all of Storm Front by Jim Butcher and really enjoyed it. I finally got my review of it up tonight. Then on Monday night I picked up Perfectly Plum and started it. I got about two essays in before deciding that perhaps I wasn't in the mood for it. It's a much more technical style than the last few books of essays I read, and I wasn't enjoying it at all. The only other book on my end table (and heaven forbid I get up) was Literacy and Longing in L.A. by Jennifer Kaufman and Karen Mack. I've read about 80 pages and so far I am underwhelmed. Bloggers are loving it all over the place, but I can not relate to the lead character at all and the writing style doesn't grab me either. I finally picked up Iron Kissed by Patricia Briggs and, as expected, sank right in. I should finish it up in the next day or two.

I've spent a lot of time this weekend moving books around (still making room for a baby in our house!) and have found tons of books that I Really! Want! to! Read! so hopefully I can make more time for reading in the next few months.

What are you reading? What are you looking forward to?


  1. Currently reading The Summer Book by Tove Jansson, with another stack of library waiting for me after that, but nothing I'm DYING to read as yet...

  2. Finished reading The Worst Day of My Life, So Far this weekend. Now I'm working on Backwater by Joan Bauer. It's kind of YA lit and all the characters seem kind of exaggerated, but I think it's interesting enough to stick with.

    I've been so obsessed with sewing lately that my reading time has suffered. Not enough hours in the day!

  3. I'm struggling with Left Hand of Darkness (science fiction isn't a genre I dabble in frequently). I can't wait for Piccoult's new book!

  4. I haven't heard of either Michelle or Ms. Maid's books. I have heard of Trish's but suspect I'd struggle too. Would you believe I still have not read even one Picoult, even though I have 4 or 5 in my TBR? I'm working up to it. Slowly.
