So, these days I’m juggling multiple books, along with other media. I am reading Touch & Go, by Lisa Gardner for the BlogHer Book Club . Given that I’ll be reviewing that book in a few weeks, I will refrain from saying anything about it in this post. Simultaneously, I am reading What Alice Forgot, by Liane Moriarty. I admit I am struggling a bit with it. I’ve been reading this book for almost a month now, and I’m only about 60% finished. Yet I can’t put my finger on what the problem is. It’s about a mom of three who got a concussion during a gym workout and lost 10 years of her memory.
Wait, maybe that’s it. It seems a little far-fetched, don’t you think? I guess I’m partly annoyed and frustrated that she doesn’t remember her kids. Have I mentioned I’m two-thirds done the book? So far, the plot revolves around the discomfort of not knowing as much as the people in your life about your own life! Interesting, yes, but c’mon already! Let’s move the plot along, shall we?
Third, up until last week, I’d also been reading Spontaneous Happiness, by Dr. Andrew Weil. Now this is a book I highly recommend and will certainly find myself reading multiple times. I’m going to try to read it once per year, or at least skim through my notes and highlights. When I haev more than just a quick lunch break to blog, I’ll tell you guys tons more about this book. Til then, check it out on Amazon.
In a stack on my kitchen table sit a few magazines I’m dying to make time to read soon: Whole Living and Experience Life. These guys will probably sit around a while, although I typically read a magazine start-to-finish the same day it arrives. This time? I just don’t have the time!
And I’ve been struggling to NOT buy Daring Greatly by Brene Brown until I’ve finished some of my other reading. But it’s up next on my to-read list.
Actually, before Brene, I need to pick up The Secret Life of Bees, which is my friend’s book club pick for this month. Have you read it? Did you love or hate it? More importantly, is it a fairly quick read? I have tons of reading to do (obviously, if you’re still reading this blog post!), and a very busy life with a full-time job and an energetic toddler!
I wish I could quit my job and just read books all day long. Sigh…
What are you reading? Won’t you link up with me and Lindsay & share?
