Happy Friday! What are you reading?

How do you like it so far? Is it for any of the challenges or just for fun?

Re: Happy Friday! What are you reading?

  • I am listening to The Winter Witch by Paula Brackston. It is awful.
    I am reading a random book on my kindle. I forget what it is called. Its okay.
  • I'm reading Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys. I'm enjoying it. It's # 17 for the year.

  • I am listening to Dragonfly in Amber, which is good.  I'm almost done reading Wool, and I really like it.  I think I will start Little Bee next for my book club.
  • I just started Code Name Verity.  I'm really excited for this one because girls on here that normally enjoy the same books as me have raved about it.  It would be #35 for the year.

  • I am reading Sins of the Heart. It has been okay so far. I think it will be around 35 for the year.

  • I'm finishing up The Enchanted by Rene Denfeld.  It's short but packs a huge punch.  And I'm about to start The Martian by Andy Weir.  I've hear nothing but raves about it, so I'm excited.

  • Bedwetter by Sarah Silverman is the audiobook I started on the way to work last night. The first CD seems to be all about actual bed wetting. Kind of crazy. I'm going to try to fit it into WBC.
    I'm Not Her by Janet Gurtler which is just ok. Another teenage cancer story, but focused on the patient's sister who is a somewhat unlikable character. It's my 3 word title for WBC.

    These are books 12 and 13 for the year with a goal of 75.

  • I'm reading something called The Laird on Kindle.  It's meh.  I thought it was going to be different than it was but I picked it up to have something to do while on jury duty yesterday.

    My favorite Cake Wreck ever.

    It's slippery as waterweed.
  • I am still working on The Harding Era: Warren G. Harding and his Administration by Robert K. Murray for my presidential challenge (I am almost done though!)

    I have about 20 more pages of The Tenderness of Wolves by Stef Penney which I hope to finish up at my desk this morning.  I wasn't a big fan of this one.  

    I am also reading The Americans (Kent Family Chronicles #8) by John Jakes.  This is the last book in the series. 

    And I plan to start Snowblind by Christopher Golden today.  I am really excited for this one!  I was able to meet the author at christmas time and he read a excerpt from the book and it sounded awesome.

  • I finished HP4 for my re-read this morning. I will be starting This Song Will Save Your Life next.

    These are books 20 and 21 for the year. My goal is 50.

  • I'm thinking about reading Everblue by Brenda Pandos or The Elite by Kiera Cass. I may just read both of them. Everblue is on my Nook, which is easy to read when feeding or holding the baby. The Elite is a hardback, and I'm trying to read through hardback and paperback books to make room on my shelves. They'll be #10 and #11 for the year. No challenges.

  • I'm listening to A Visit From The Goon Squad.  I'm enjoying listening to it but hoping it all comes together in the end to reveal some sort of point because I'm not feeling much of a plot at the moment.

  • I'm reading Hyperbole and a Half by Allie Brosh, HP5 (reread) and Morning Glory by Sarah Jio.  They are all pretty good.  Hyperbole is hilarious!  I adore HP so I'm loving my reread.  I just started Morning Glory yesterday afternoon so I'm not very far in, but it seems pretty good.  They are 10-12 for the year.

    I've had Everblue on my Nook for a long time. I think it was a really cheap book that I thought looked somewhat interesting. I really liked The Selection and have been looking forward to reading The Elite.

    Yep. I was a little disappointed.  It's still funny, but there really wasn't much new material.

    That is kind of disappointing. At least I know now.

  • Reading Allegiant.  I'm about halfway through and I like it so far.  I am kind of dreading getting to the end, which so many people seemed to dislike.

    Listening to Songs of Willow Frost by Jamie Ford.  It is very good so far, but sad.  I'm crossing my fingers for a happy ending for everybody. 

     

  • I'm a little more than halfway through The White Princess by Philippa Gregory.  I like it a lot, but I'm also in the middle of season one of the Starz series of The White Queen (I read the three books the series is based on a while ago), and it's giving me a little bit of time warp whiplash going back and forth between watching the mother (Queen) and reading about the daughter (Princess) and they're both roughly the same age in their respective vehicles.
