What I’m Reading: October 26, 2014

I had this post typed and ready to go except for inserting images and editing and Chrome crashed and I lost the whole thing. WordPress needs to have a periodic auto-save feature like Blogger has. Grrrrr!

Weekly What I'm Reading

I had a fantastic week of reading. I finished Gail Carriger’s Etiquette and Espionage and started and finished book two, Curtsies and Conspiracies. I loved them both. I wrote a review for both books over on my Goodreads account and may or may not expound on those reviews here on the blog.


The Book of Life

Also this week, I made a trip to the library. I visit various libraries in the area pretty regularly for school, but I haven’t actually checked out a book in about four years. This has to make me the worst Library and Information Science student ever. With my self-imposed book buying ban, the library is the only option I have for new books until the New Year. I’m really happy with my trip though. Out of the four books I checked out, I started with The Book of Life by Deborah Harkness. Usually, I would never borrow the third book in a trilogy when I have already read the first two. However, I have the first two as eBooks so borrowing the third was no big deal. I’m on page 100 and so far, it’s been a slow go. Lots of chit chat with little actually going on. I’m patiently waiting for it to pick up.

The Murder of Adam and Eve

I also started a new eBook last night. It’s The Murder of Adam and Eve by William Dietrich. I’m already familiar with his other works having read quite a few of them over the years. I’m definitely a fan and was really excited when I saw this YA novel as a “read now” on Net Galley. I just started it last night (late last night) and I’m already 20% into it. It was hard to put down and make myself go to sleep. Has anyone read this? There is only one review on Goodreads and I’m curious why it hasn’t gotten more. What about the cover? There’s something about it that I find striking. Maybe the colors?

This week, I anticipate finishing both of these books and have no idea which library book I want to read next. What do you suggest?

1. Atonement by Ian McEwan. This would be my first Ian McEwan novel. I really like the sound of the synopsis.

2. VIII by H.M. Castor. I’m am very intrigued by this book. I’ve read lots of books, fiction and non fiction, about Henry VIII but none that are in the YA genre too. I’m very excited to see how this book was written and compare it to other novels I’ve already read.

3. The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks by E. Lockhart. Like I said in my review of We Were Liars, I admire Lockhart’s writing style so in order to give her storytelling another chance, I picked this book up. Also, it was the only Lockhart the library had at the time. Go ahead and suggest one.
