I’ve been talking about all the new books on my stacks but how about I talk about my current reads now? I’m still reading Evil and the Mask by Fuminori Nakamura. I mentioned this one early in the month. Actually, I’m close to the end but this is a dark book with unlikeable characters and it’s not the book I want to pick up right before sleep. I’m going to try to finish it this weekend though because it is due back at the library soon.
Unfortunately Mansfield Park by Jane Austen has remained largely untouched after such a good start. I feel like this is a book I need to spend more than 15 minutes with and I just need a good chunk of time to enjoy it. So for now the bookmark remains at page 30.
The one book I am enjoying a lot and pick up over all the others is The Last Letter From Your Lover by Jojo Moyes. I think this one is going to count for both the Romance Reading Challenge and the Postal Challenge. It’s ok to double-dip right? This book is just so readable. It’s not as gut-wrenching as Me Before You but it’s a good story.
This week I started Don’t Ever Get Old by Daniel Friedman. I don’t think this book is one that would have caught my attention but it’s a book group book which I need to finish by next week. This is why it’s great to belong to book groups because you try books you may not pick up on your own! I’m glad I’m reading this because this book is a hoot. Some funny stuff here folks.
I was planning to add Jamaica Inn by Daphne DuMaurier to my current reads because I was going to join in the Slaves discussion this month. Well, guess what? I wrote the date wrong on my calendar and discussion has already started. Still I would love to read this book so who knows I may just pick it up over the weekend.
Anyway these are the books I’m spending my weekend with, how about you? Hope you all have a super weekend!
