On my nightstand
I finished The Historian last week. I loved it so much I hated to finish it … I also skimmed through The Gift of a Year this week, but never really got into it. I also skimmed The Art of Simple Food, but wasn’t as enamored of it as I have been in the past, (maybe just my mood).
What is left:
Stalking Susan by Julie Kramer — so far I am loving this book. (OK, not as much as I loved The Historian, but for other reasons!) It is in the same genre as a book I have started to write (with a female reporter as a heroine) and has actually inspired me to begin writing again.!!!! Which is huge!!!
The copy on my nightstand belongs to my SIL (who hasn’t read it yet) but I also ordered my own copy today from Amazon and am giving her back her copy tonight. We have book club tonight and it is her turn to pick. After I raved about the first few chapters, she decided to pick this book, so I’ve ordered my own copy and am returning hers. My other bookclub meets on Thursday. We are going to discuss Run by Ann Patchett, a pretty good book, but not one I would own. What a fun week. I love bookclubs!
When Will There Be Good News by Kate Atkinson: I will probably wait a bit on this one because I own it and I’m waiting on a book from Amazon that I’m super excited about.
This book will soon (I hope) be on my nightstand:
What French Women Know — Debra Ollivier’s new book. I bought it as a pre-order and it wasn’t supposed to come out until September, but I just got a notice that it shipped! Her book, Entre Nous, was a HUGE influence on me and my life.
