what we're reading logo

Unsurprisingly, we bloggers have very different tastes when it comes to choosing books to read for  pleasure. Here’s a peek at what we’re currently reading:

Donna – I’m reading a cozy mystery, An Uplifting Murder-a Josie Marcus Mystery Shopper Series by Elaine Viets.

Amy B. – I’m reading Quiet: The power of Introverts in a world that can’t stop talking by Susan Cain.

Laura S – I’m reading Unholy Night by Seth Grahame-Smith, Sacre Bleu by Christopher Moore and I JUST got Let’s Pretend This Never Happened: A Mostly True Memoir  by The Bloggess Jenny Lawson. It’s going to be a funny, funny weekend in my house!

Vanessa – I am reading Anne’s House of Dreams, the 5th book in L.M. Montgomery’s Anne of Green Gables Series. Anne and Gilbert have finally gotten married and moved into their “House o’Dreams”. Such a sweet book!

Sarah – I’m reading The True Meaning of Smekday by Adam Rex. It might be juvenile fiction, but it’s funny for grown-ups, too!

Amy M. – I’m reading Mad Women: The Other Side of Life on Madison Avenue in the ’60’s and Beyond by Jane Maas.

Emily – I’m reading The Expats by Chris Pavone.  Newly arrived in Luxembourg, mother and expat Kate Moore suspects that another American couple are not who they claim to be and as her paranoia grows, she becomes increasingly terrified that her own past is catching up with her.

Ross – I’m currently waiting for The Social Conquest of Earth by Edward O. Wilson.  Seems like a fascinating (and probably controversial) read. We shall see.

Laura – Grave Mercy by Robin Lefevers. Marked by St. Mortain as his handmaiden, Ismae escapes a brutal arranged marriage to become a nun in St. Mortain’s convent, which isn’t your ordinary Medieval convent but one which grooms its members to be assassins. Engaging, alternate world fantasy.

McKenzie – I’m reading Clash of Kings, the second book in George R. R. Martin’s “Song of Fire and Ice” series.

Eric – I’m reading the new book from Seth Grahame-Smith, Unholy Night. Mr. Grahame-Smith is the author o Abraham Lincoln:  Vampire Hunter which was adapted for the movies and will be in theaters June 22nd.
