The Sunday Salon: I'm Reading!

Have I had a good couple weeks of reading or what? This is what summer is all about!

Here's what I've just finished recently and need to officially review:

Little Bee by Chris Cleave: Beautifully written book with a subject matter that is intensely hard to read.

My Ridiculous Romantic Obsessions by Becca Wilhite: perfect summer fluff

Everlost by Neal Shusterman: a highly adventurous ghost story

Here's what I've started:

The Dragon Reborn by Robert Jordan: about five chapters in and so far we're seeing the story only from Perrin's point of view, which is okay by me... so far....

Hidden Wives by Claire Avery: a few pages in and already I'm interested and curious

Captivate by Carrie Jones: One chapter in and so far it's mostly just a wrap up of the first book Need.

The Demon's Lexicon by  Sarah Rees Brennan: Several chapters in and I've put it aside in favor of the other books. I'm not sure why. Just a mood thing I guess.

And what I hope to get to soon:

The  Short Second Life of Bree Tanner by Stephenie Meyer: My friend at work bought it, started it, said she couldn't handle it, said I could borrow it if I wanted, after which she plans to donate it to the library. This does not bode well for the book! But still, I want to read it just so I'm up with things.

Spells by Aprilynne Pike: Reviews are saying they like it better than Wings.

The King of Attolia by Megan Whalen Turner: Dang, I'm dying to get back to Gen!

Fall of Giants by Ken Follett: So cool, this showed up in the mail. And I think it's the hugest book I've seen in awhile (bigger by another third than The Passage) and so if I want to have it done by its September release date, I need to start now!

Then there's eight or so other random library books most of which I'm so very anxious to read! Ah, but that's just the same old story, right?

I think I can keep up this roll for another week. But then, the next week, not so much. Hopefully that busy week won't throw me off too much and I can get back on track afterwards and read read read!

How's your summer reading going? What book have you read so far this summer that you think there's no way I should miss?


  1. I just finished The Likening by Tana French--really a wonderful mystery and fun for summer. I will be on the lookout for your review on Little Bee.

  2. I can't say I've read one you don't want to miss. Sad, eh? I was really clipping right along with my reading until my newest online class started this week. Hopefully I'll get back into a routine with the online job & my summer break. LOL. I am reading Catching Fire right now though. I hope it catches on to me soon!

  3. You have an awesome week planned can't wait to read all the fab reviews. Enjoy.

  4. Can't wait to read more of your thoughts on Little Bee. I've seriously been considering buying it, and I never buy!

    So far my fave read of summer is The Good Earth. It was just as readable and engrossing as any contemporary novel, even though it was published in 1931.

  5. Reviews: I really need to read a Tara French book sometime. I see her everywhere.

    Becky: That is crazy that you are struggling through Catching Fire. You must really not be in the mood!

    Jan: Boy, I better get busy reviewing!

    Andi: I already commented on your blog how much I too love The Good Earth! It's an amazing book.

    Review for Little Bee coming up soon!

  6. Hidden Wives sounds great -- looking forward to your thoughts!
