What I’m Reading 3

As I predicted, I’m surviving, but not with much grace.  Tutoring has taken over my life, but I love all my kids, so it’s good–as long as I can stay awake. :-)

What I’m listening to:  The Knife of Never Letting Go – I heard about this book from a friend of mine last year.  While I wasn’t sure about it at first, I’m really enjoying it.  It’s sort of dystopian, but it’s about the settlers on a new world. The most exciting part is that I haven’t figured it out yet.  :-)

What I’m reading: One of Our Thursdays is Missing – This is the newest installment in the Thursday Next series.  I’m still not very far in as I took a break and read another book, but it’s a really fun read so far complete with the usual shenanigans by various famous literary characters.

What I finished: Dead Reckoning – Not my favorite Sookie novel, but still good.  I found it as exciting as the others with a good mix of her life and troubles, but I felt like the end was a bit unresolved.  We shall see what she does with it in the next book, I guess.

What I finished: The Mountain Between Us – A few years ago, I discovered Charles Martin.  I LOVE this author!  He’s such a fantastic storyteller.  The way he weaves stories is beautiful and heart wrenching and moving and hopeful all at the same time, and this story was no different.  I found this book to be a bit different from his others in that I didn’t see the twist coming AT ALL.  As I thought back over the story, I should have, but I didn’t.  I laughed; I cried; I threw the book across the room when I finished it.  It was GREAT!  If you haven’t read his stuff–DO IT!
