I am continuing with the trend of reading more than one book at a time, so I thought I would share with you what I am reading once again.
The Marriage Plot by Jeffrey Eugenides: I LOVE him! When I say favourite authors, he should totally be on my list. I am both excited and worried about this book. Middlesex was an amazing book and it is going to be hard to write a book that is that wonderful. I am only 50 pages in, but so far I am enjoying it. There is a lot of bookish connections and the main character loves to read.
Spell Bound by Kelley Armstrong: Reading this book is a sense of accomplishment to me. It is the 12th book in the series! There are very few series of that length that I am caught up with. I am early into this one, too, but it is nice to visit with the familiar characters once again. So far Savannah, Adam, Hope, Karl, and Jaime have made appearances. It is still early, too! Oh, and Savannah's father and sort of her mother. I am excited about this book.
The Infinity Gate by Sara Douglass: FINALLY! I was so excited about this book and then it took me forever to read it... I want to get cracking so I can go back and read her earlier books. It is just as great so far as the previous two books in the trilogy.
Lost in Shangri-La by Mitchell Zuckoff: This is really interesting so far. I have heard good things and it does have a very readable style. It is not dry at all so far. This will eventually be a buddy read.
The Rise and Fall of Mount Majestic by Jennifer Trafton: I have heard good things about this, so I am looking forward to it. It is fun so far! It sort of fell by the wayside because of the mail the other day including the Armstrong and the Eugenides...
A Short History of Nearly Everything by Bill Bryson: The only book still hanging on from last week. I could be done this book by now, but in the beginning I was only reading one chapter at a time. I have moved it up to two chapters, but it will still be a few days before I finish.
Nice. When I finish these books it will be 2 review copies from Random House Canada, 2 review copies from Harper Collins Canada, and 2 library books. That's a good blend.
Just in case it takes me forever to review the books I mentioned last week... Other had a few problems, but it was still pretty good. Chime turned out to be really good! I must read more from her. The Autobiography of Mrs. Tom Thumb was my favourite read lately. It was a really interesting book and well written! You must read it! Love Times Three was interesting, but a bit too religious in nature for me. At least they didn't come across as thinking they were perfect. It annoys me when people find religion and justify everything that they do with it...
