It's Monday! What Are You Reading? 09/19/2016




Currently Reading:


Brooklyn by Colm Toibin is incredible. What a gorgeous bit of story telling. I'm off to work this Monday morning but I'd much rather be staying home with this book!

Upcoming:


Thanks to Book of the Month (and the recommendation of nearly every reader in the world!) my next read will probably be A Gentleman in Moscow by Amor Towles. I've heard nothing but wonderful things and when it arrived in the mail I put it right on top of my to-be-read pile.

  1. Colm Toibin is such a great writer! I loved Brooklun. I am also eager to read A Gentleman in Moscow. First must keep at my NetGalley shelf --and rue having passed up requesting it. I'm reading Michael Chabon's Moonglow.

  5. I'm reading Ann Patchett's new "Commonwealth." Her books are each so different and this one is no exception!

  6. Everyone seems to love Gentleman in Moscow...sadly, I'm an outlier there. I liked it OK, but wasn't as over the moon as everyone else.

  12. See! This is why having book friends is dangerous! I was comfortable not ever reading Colm Toibin, and then everyone's been saying how dear and lovable Brooklyn is and forcing me to rethink everything.
