Google+ The Introverted Reader: What Are You Reading?/In My Mailbox Monday

What Are You Reading?/In My Mailbox Monday

Monday, May 24, 2010


It's Monday!  What Are You Reading? is hosted by Sheila at Book Journey. I missed posting last week, so I'm not sure where I left off. I think these are from the past week.

Read:
The Dark Divine by Bree Despain--Not my favorite. 3 Stars.
Cleopatra's Daughter by Michelle Moran--Really good! 4 Stars
The Vision of Emma Blau by Ursula Hegi--Probably suffered from interruptions. 3 Stars
Everlasting by Angie Frazier--Lots of fun! 4 Stars

Currently Reading:
Oral History by Lee Smith. I just started this one and I'm not sure that it's what I'm in the mood for. I may put it aside for now. I do love Smith's work though.

Up Next:
I definitely need to get to Thumbing Through Thoreau, a book of quotations compiled by Kenny Luck.

What are you reading this week?

  5. I am curious about Oral History. I've read a few of Lee Smith's books -- she's a terrific writer.

  8. I loved Cleopatra's Daughter. Apparently the author is venturing away from Ancient Egypt in her next book. Oh, and I actually do have the Boudica books by Manda Scott! I've read the first two, but the other two are still waiting to be read. I really liked them. It has been a few years since I read book two, but I'm glad the books include a thoughtful summary in the beginning of each. Makes up for the gap in years for me!

  9. I met Lee Smith when I was in college, she was a guest speaker at the school's literary fest. Her title Family Linen was one of the few book that I was forced to read that I actually LOVED.
