It’s Monday! What are you Reading? is hosted by Sheila at Book Journey.
I am currently reading:
- A Visit From the Goon Squad by Jennifer Egan – I like this book enough, but I do not feel compelled to pick it up at every available moment. There are so many characters narrating the story, which jumps around in time. I spend a few minutes at the beginning of each chapter mentally going through the list of characters in order to figure out who is narrating.
- To Fetch a Thief by Spencer Quinn – I had a stressful week last week and found myself more in the mood to listen to music than books on my way to work. Really, I will finish it this week.
Last week I finished:
Turn of Mind by Alice LaPlante – I enjoyed this book, but it may have suffered from my reading it after Before I Go to Sleep (my review). Turn of Mind is about a former surgeon with Alzheimer’s who is accused of killing her neighbor. The book essentially chronicles her deterioration over a fairly short amount of time, while she and her family deal with the murder accusation. Review soon. (4 out of 5)
Beaglemania by Linda O. Johnston
I picked up Hell to Pay for my nook. I can’t resist a $1.99 deal from a favorite author. I have only read Pelecanos’ stand-alone novels. I can’t wait to try this series. I picked up the first, Right as Rain, about a month ago.
