Musing Mondays: What Are You Reading?


Today’s MUSING MONDAYS post is a short meme:

WHAT ARE YOU READING RIGHT NOW? Right now I'm (still) reading Out Stealing Horses by Per Petterson. It's a slow read, but very good.

WHAT DID YOU RECENTLY FINISH READING, and WHAT DID YOU THINK OF IT? I recently finished The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society and I loved it! What an interestingly different sort of book. It was a very enjoyable read. You can read my review here if you like.

WHAT DO YOU THINK YOU WILL READ NEXT? It's a toss-up between Whistling in the Dark by Lesley Kagan or The Heretic's Daughter by Kathleen Kent . I'm having a hard time deciding!

WILL YOU READ ANY HOLIDAY-THEMED BOOKS SOON? I haven't really thought about it, but there is one holiday-themed book I enjoyed awhile back that I wouldn't mind reading again. It's Mary Kay Andrews' Blue Christmas. (She's the author of Savannah Blues, which I loved!) In fact, I believe it's being re-releasing for the season. It's a cute story and it's only 208 pages, so you can read it pretty quickly.

  1. Ok, have you been peeking at my TBR pile? I've read the Guernsey book, but the others are either already here in the house or are on my wish list. LOL! (Well, I don't have Blue Christmas, but I do have Savannah Blues.)

  5. I love Mary Key Andrews, and I have read everything of hers except this one...need to add it to my list. I have heard that Lorna Landvik, another favorite, has a Christmas one out this year.

  7. Jill - I'm a huge MK Andrews fan!! I have all of her books, too. Can't wait for her new one, 'The Fixer Upper' to come out. (late 09 I think). I've never heard of Lorna Landvik, I'll have to look her up.

    Kittycat - Yes, I'll play! Thanks for tagging me!
