Currently Reading

I hope your month is off to a great start. Despite the busy week and weekend, I just finished two books. Granted, I started these last month but still, kind of excited about that.

Aside from Reading Ireland month (I still haven’t decided which book to read), March is also Women’s History month and I figured this would be a perfect time to select a nonfiction choice (still trying to decide). And, tomorrow is the announcement of the Women’s Prize for Fiction long list.

So while there’s a lot of books to choose from for this month, let’s talk about what I am currently reading:

I’m in the middle of The Lost Children Archive by Valeria Luiselli. While it’s discussing a very important topic the narrative is not necessarily like a novel but reads more like an essay and I wasn’t quite expecting that so it’s been a bit harder for me to process this one. Still I’ll continue to read it and will let you know how it goes.

I’m still enjoying Weaving Sundown in a Scarlet Light by Joy Harjo and like with most poetry collections I tend to take my time with them so I may still be reading this into next month. Of course A Happy Poem to End Every Day is one that will be with me throughout the year. 

I’m also reading Love Lettering by Kate Clayborn which is a story about a famous and in demand hand-lettering artist in New York and who is dealing with a difficult client, a best friend who is ignoring her and a handsome former client who is all about numbers and not much into art but she’s determined to make him see a different side of New York. I admit I fell for this one because of the talk about fonts and letter arts because my husband is very impressive at calligraphy if I do say so myself, but something is a bit off with this romantic novel.

Oh goodness and how could I forget, I need to start Walk the Wire by David Baldacci soon as we’re discussing that this month for mystery book group and I’m leading the discussion!

So that’s what’s going on in my reading corner. What about you, are there some books you’d like to get to this month?
