It’s Monday, April 18. What Are You Reading?

Because I’d really like to know since I’m reading the same book as last week for my library book group titled Mister Owita’s Guide to Gardening. It’s a memoir by Carol Wall and hope it gets better because the blurb on the book made me anxious to read it. Now, not so much. It feels like work and I’m not gelling with the characters or the story. I have many others that came in from the library that I’m desperate to start. Like:

You Should Pity Us Instead by Amy Gustine

The Ancient Minstrel: Novellas by Jim Harrison

What Is Not Yours Is Not Yours by Helen Oyeyemi

The Bed Moved by Rebecca Schiff

Short stories have really been working nicely for me right now with school back in full swing. I’ve always had a collection going while reading other books, but this year they seem like the only genre that has been steadily keeping my attention.

I’m also listening to The Swans of Fifth Avenue by Melanie Benjamin for my commute here and there and I can’t tell you how surprised I am by it. It’s not typical reading fare for me and the story, voices and juicy scandal is captivating.

What are you reading this week?

    • YES!! Dishy, fabulous, also sad and a bit dark in places. I’m getting caught up looking at photos of the real people online. So fascinating! I really hope Eligible is great. I’m going to give it a chance when my hold comes in. It’s been a while since I’ve read a P&P modern take and going in open-minded. Can’t wait to hear what you think.
