I apologize for my brief hiatus – my children were struck with yet another round of sickness. I’m a seasoned Mainer, but I’ve just about reached my winter limit. I say this as I watch snowflakes fall from my window, one week before spring. Old Man winter does not follow my blog, apparently. (But I’m grateful that you do!)
So, what have you been reading lately? I tend to read multiple books (and various formats) at once – depending on my mood and location.
On my Nook, I’ve recently started Rick Riordan’s The Lost Hero. This is book one of a five book series. I’ve not read any of his work yet (he has multiple kids fiction series), so I decided that it was time. And also because it was on sale for $1.99.
I’m also about halfway through Hausfrau by Jill Alexander Essbaum. This is a hardcover adult fiction that I’d heard quite a bit about – so I bought this as soon as it was available a couple of days ago. It’s fast paced and risqué – I’ll write a more detailed review next week.
I’m also reading S by J.J. Abrams and Doug Dorst. This book-in-a-book is dense and cerebral; I can usually only get through a few pages at a time before I succumb to mental paralysis. Meticulous and impressive, though.
And lastly, I’m nearly finished with From a Buick 8 by Stephen King. This is in audiobook format. Yes, I consider that reading – I’m absorbing the words that the author wrote, so it totally counts. Although a tad lengthy, I’m engrossed in the various narrators. One narrator typically voices a book, but this one has an impressive eight narrators.
That’s it for my literary juggling. What style/format is your go-to? Do you read multiple at once, too?
