Reading This Week, You?

Showing at my house in 25 minutes! YIKES! This will be quick.

What am I currently reading?

I am reading The Vacationers by Emma Straub. It’s good so far, but not yet great. It has taken 100 pages to get into the story/characters (and I don’t like that with so many books in my “to read” pile). I feel it will be interesting…soon?

I am listening to Love in the Time of Cholera and LOVING the hell out of it. I have read several books lately by Latino authors. Maybe I just “get” them. It is romantic, extremely well written, and at times humorous. Although, I don’t think I could handle unrequited love for more than 50 years as this character has.

What did I recently finish?

The Light Between Oceans by M. L. Stedman. I gave it three stars on Goodreads. I liked it. I didn’t love it. But it makes the idea, for me, of living in a lighthouse very intriguing.

Summer House with Swimming Pool by Herman Koch. I really liked it. I immensely enjoyed his last book (dark, dark, dark) The Dinner.

What will I read next?

Who knows? What about you?

Beds, dishes, fluffing? Check, check, check!

Off to hot yoga!


  1. I'm currently obsessed with Julie James' FBI/US Attorney romance novel series. If you are looking for a fun, sexy read, give them a try!

    1. Well, I am always looking for something sexy to read. I shall check it out!

  2. Hey! First of all, good luck with house sale. And I am going to see Jennifer Weiner in Naporville on Tuesday. Care to join? 6:30 pm. Champagne included.

    1. Having some come backers so fingers are crossed!

      I am pretty sure I'm free. Is she at Anderson's? I can look it up. How fun!

  3. I am back on the James Patterson Women's Murder club series. Finally on book 10. If I don't read them back to back they are hard to get into. The 7th one I stopped and started a million times - read a million books in between. Hope all is well with the the selling of the house.

    1. I'm a little scattered lately! House selling is going... I'm the type of person that when I make a decision to move on, I move on. It's only been two weeks and I am so over this. But...
