What Are You Reading?

summer-reading4

As I get my life back under my own control again, it’s time to continue our regularly scheduled features. Friday, as always, is What Are You Reading day. Me, I’m more than halfway through Jim Butcher’s Furies of Calderon epic fantasy novel. So far, I am finding it absorbing and filled with characters I am becoming invested in, though I can’t say it pulls me in like Butcher’s Dresden Files series does. But then, that’s my favorite urban fantasy series of all time, so not much does.

I just finished reading False Awakenings by Callum McLaughlin, and will be reviewing that soon, and I’m starting on Pack Princess, by Aimee Easterling. Will be reviewing that one soon, too, if I’m allowed a bit more reading time next week than I’ve been getting lately. So stay tuned for new reviews and updates on various other bookish things.

Now it’s your turn. What are you reading? As always, inquiring minds wanna know! Let us hear from you…

  1. I am reading The Secret History of Wonder Woman by Jill Lepore, The Keystone Kid: Tales of Early Hollywood by Coy Watson, Jr., and Moll Flanders by Daniel Defoe!

    • Hi, Maedez! I’m always impressed by the wide variety of genres and authors you read. I read Moll Flanders many, many decades ago and remember enjoying it very much. The other two are new to me, and I’m writing them down, as always. Thanks so much for taking the time to let us hear from you. Have a great weekend!

      • I love Daniel Defoe’s books, and Moll Flanders is no exception.

        The Secret History of Wonder Woman is fabulous. Fabulous.

        The Coy Watkins, Jr. book is a totally unique, first-hand account of movie-making in Hollywood 100 years ago!

        I’ve always just read what I wanted to, even when I was really young. My mom always encouraged me to do so!

  2. I’m really excited to hear what you thought of False Awakening!

    I’ve just started The October List by Jeffrey Deaver, which is a thriller told in reverse (certainly an interesting concept).

    • I enjoyed it very much, Callum, and with any luck, will be getting a review up in a day or so, with more details. πŸ™‚ I’ve read a lot of Jeffrey Deaver over the years, and always enjoyed his books. Do you read Lee Child? Just curious. (Not comparing them.) Thanks for stopping by!

      • That’s great to hear. Thank you, Marcia! πŸ™‚

        You know, I’m embarrassed to say I haven’t actually read any Lee Child yet. I should probably fix that.

        • What? You mean you haven’t read every single good book by every single good author out there? SLACKER! πŸ˜€ Seriously, as you no doubt know by now, I dearly love Jack Reacher, and I could read these books forever. But even if I didn’t want to follow the entire series, I would still recommend reading a couple of them. Reacher is a force of nature, with a folding toothbrush. πŸ˜€ Start at the beginning, though, if you decide to check them out. They do build on each other, even though a few are books that flashback to an earlier time. Still, they also connect with where Reacher is “today.”

          If you try one, let me know. Child has a wonderful way of building a plot, with tiny hints and clues that Reacher picks up on, and you have to try to see what HE’S seeing, as he pieces the puzzle together. You never will, of course…but that’s the beauty of it.

  3. I’m reading The Secret Diary of Lizzie Bennet, which is based on a vlog I thought was adorable. Any Pride & Prejudice fans should check out either or both.
