Tea & Books - What are you reading?
Just got This is a Call : The Life & Times of Dave Grohl from the library – one of my favourite musical artists, definitely looking forward to having some time to crack it open
Finishing up Excavation by James Rollins. I really love this author!
I’m reading Kushiel’s Dart. I bought it kind of on a whim, but it’s so good!
I think I remember this one from browsing, it did look interesting but I wasn’t sure :D
It’s quite good, especially if you like intrigue-filled fantasy. You know, the ones with a massive list of characters in the front you need to refer to all the time because you forget who everyone is XD
ah yes, let’s keep the encyclepedia of characters nearby :D
I’m currently reading The Outward Room by Millen Brand http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/8320645-the-outward-room
I finished House of Discarded Dreams and am now reading The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao.
Oh a classic Claire, enjoy!
About halfway through now and I love Diaz’s prose style. I also couldn’t help laughing out loud while riding the bus at “and of all these things the albino boy was the symbol. Wonder ye then at the fiery hunt”. Brilliant!
I finished up No One Writes the Colonel by Gabriel Garcia Marquez last night, and I’ve now been reading on a beautifully illustrated (with amazing stark black and white paper cut-outs) collection of Mongolian folktales, appropriately titled Mongolian Folktales.
How was No One Writes the Colonel? I love GGM, but haven’t read very much of his yet, mostly his collected stories and 100 Years of Solitude.
Can I just say that I love that so many tea drinkers are book lovers too!!!
You guys rock!
I’ve moved on to Blood Rites by Jim Butcher…LOVE The Dresden Files!
I love Jim Butcher!
I love Dresden Files, so excited for Cold Days to come out!
The Dresden Files are awesome! I can’t wait for the next one :D
I need to step up my reading so I can be ready for the new one!
Partway through Lots of Candles, Plenty of Cake by Anna Quindlan. I wasn’t familiar with her before this book, but I am enjoying it. Reads more like an essay collection on life than a memoir, but I love that. Essays are one of my favourite things to enjoy in the non-fiction world.
I was thinking the other day I wanted to read a good essay collection… maybe something pop-culturey… I have to have something like that on my shelves.
I just finished Stephen King’s “11/22/63”. Now I’m reading “Clementine”, by Cherie Priest. Her first book, “Boneshaker”, was my first Steampunk read, and this one is of the same genre, and includes some of the same characters.
Rarely has it taken me as long to finish a novel as it’s taking me to get through 11/22/63. While I’m reading it, I really enjoy it, but when I put it down at the end of the reading session, I find it difficult to pick up and get into again. So odd.
I did enjoy the book, but it wasn’t one of those books I couldn’t put down, which is good because I’m self-employed & it’s easy for me to fall into time-warps, instead of “taking care of bizness”. Actually, this site is a bit of a time warp for me, but I’m loving it!
