What I Am Reading

If you follow this page you will learn that my reading taste is very eclectic and is not necessarily tied to the genre I write.

I hope you find some books to add to your To Be Read List. Check out my very long list on GoodReads


Currently Reading

Illiterary Fiction

Chris Angelis

Illiterary Fiction is set in a world where no one reads for pleasure any longer. Corporations and individuals hire professional readers. The story follows Paul, a professional reader in his early thirties who has just lost his job at a media house. A rich Wall Street analyst, Stanley, hires Paul as his reader. It feels like a dream coming true. But soon Paul will enter a world of incredible misery and suffering hidden under the gilded surface

Dawn O’Hara, The Girl Who Laughed

Every so often I like to read an oldie that I never got around to, i.e. An Engish Teacher didn’t make me read. I realized I have never read Edna Ferber and decided to start with her first novel written in 1911— Dawn O'Hara, The Girl Who Laughed.

Interesting that many writing styles once considered the standard of excellence are now deemed inferior when used by a modern writer. Nontheless I thoughly enjoyed this little gem. Perhaps I will tackle one of her better known works—Giant or Saratoga Trunk

The Woman In Cabin 10

Ruth Ware

I bought this at our local library sale ages ago and keep wanting to read it…other books keep yeling “Pick Me!” louder.

With the new year I will once again make myself the promise—

no new books until I read the ones I already have. 

I happened upon Dora’s Swift Coffee Blog challenge and decided to give it a try in conjunction with my annual Goodreads Reading Challenge. I will not list all 171 books on my #TBR shelf—that time is better spent reading or writing. Instead, I will list the 35 books I plan to read in 2019. Here are my past accomplishments:

Probably every reader has the same problem: too many books, too little time. Why not join a reading challenge to help you manage your TBR list.
