Tea & Books - What are you reading?
Currently taking a break from Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, because despite buying more books than I can handle, I always end up breaking in the middle to check out a bunch from my library. And then of course since those have due dates…
So the above is on hold so that I may read Under the Dragon’s Tail, from Maureen Jenning’s Murdoch Mysteries.
Just started HARD RAIN FALLING by Don Carpenter. If you like film noir, crime fiction, and great writing you will LOVE this book. I couldn’t put it down! http://www.nybooks.com/books/imprints/classics/hard-rain-falling/
Artemis Fowl: The Last Guardian and as far as I know the last book in the series…
I’ve been reading nonfiction since I simply tired of novels. I’ll be back to them soon. I’m nearing the end of a book called Bad Science by Ben Goldacre. It’s been highly informative and interesting. It has also confirmed all my suspicions about the misuse and misrepresentation of science in media and popular culture. Scariest of all is the purposeful faulty research performed in order to force a desired conclusion. For medicine even! People have died! :(
The author does have a sense of humor so it’s not such a depressing read. I’d recommend it for required reading in science classes at schools. Just excerpts maybe, but I think it has an important message.
Now reading A Little Princess by Frances Hodgson Burnett I really liked the movie so I thought I would read the classic book :D
Hoping for some quiet time this weekend to reread A Monstrous Regiment of Women (Laurie King). Sherlock, retired, meets a precocious half-American university student, mentors her, and adventures ensue. Really liked the series, up until the last three books or so.
Now reading Bitten by Kelley Armstrong a Canadian author :) I love her otherworld series :D
I finally got around to starting 11/22/63, and I’m liking it a lot.
Right now I’m reading Lamb by Christopher Moore and Academ’s Fury by Jim Butcher.
Due to my recent obsession with BBC’s Sherlock, I’ve started reading the old classic Sherlock stories. I didn’t like hem when I attempted them in the past, but now that I can imagine my favorite characters in the stories it is much better. :)
I’m also reading The Picture of Dorian Grey as a part of Steepster’s book club. Seems like just me and MadelineAlyce at the moment. :)
