Keeping up with resolutions: August reading.


Where'd You Go, Bernadette by Maria Semple - I love the way this book was written - in emails, letters, narrations - and it had me laughing and pulling for the quirky, one of a kind individual that is Bernadette Fox all the way to the end. OK, the cover kind of was a real eye catcher to me too. I love the illustration! 

What books are you currently reading?

  1. This has been on my TBR list for a long time. I think they're turning it into a movie, right? I may be mistaken....
    Reading the 5th book of the Game of Thrones series right now (Dance with Dragons). Not so much reading time though...sigh....

  10. I loved that book too! I am reading Orphan Train right now and it's really good. I read books on a Kindle device, but seeing your photo kind of makes me miss old fashioned paper books. :)

  13. Haha I did not care for Gone Girl...too contrived and I guessed the big twist and figured it out half way through it was a total bore after that. I am reading " A Constellation of Vital Phenomena"
