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


Since We Fell

Dennis Lehane

Dennis Lehane is one of my favorite writers. This is the first one I have read that Lehane writes from the perspective of his female protagonist.

Recently Finished Reading

The Proud Highway

Part 1 of an autobiography of Hunter S. Thompson told through his personal letters from 1955-1967. Wonderful insight into the mind and madness of the man. If there is need for additional proff that the boy just ain’t right…this is it.

What an enjoyable read! Smart and funny.


Next Read

Dawn O'Hara, The Girl Who Laughed

Edna Ferber

Every so often I like to read an oldie that I never got around to. Next I will tackle Edna Ferber’s first novel written in 1911 Dawn O'Hara, The Girl Who Laughed.

Interesting that what once was considered the standard of excellence in writing is now deemed inferior when used by a modern writer.

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.
