  1. I want to read In the Garden of Beasts. I still need to read The Devil in the White City too.

    I'll have to check out your Character Connection post. I liked Cal.

  2. I haven't read Memory and Dream but it sounds good. My favorite read last week was Amy and Roger's Epic Detour by Morgan Matson. Please come see what else I'm reading.

  3. I've never been able to read so many books at once. I'm a one book kinda gal and I envy your multi-book-reading abilities! ;)

    1. I've slowly become a multi-book reader out of desperation to fit more different kinds of books in. Does that make sense? I read non-fiction before bed, audio in the car, and something on my nook at the gym and then there's the "regular" book that I carry around to read on my lunch break and around the house.

  4. I've always wanted to read The Heart is a Lonely Hunter. I read In the Garden of Beasts and didn't like it as much as Devil in the White City but it was still very good. Love Larson's writing style :)

    1. Larson does have a way of writing non-fiction that keeps my attention.

  5. I've seen that classic by McCullers on another blog just last week. I've heard about the book but never read it.

    1. For a change! My reading/blogging time has felt non-existent this summer!

  7. I'm slowly making my way through the Kathy Reichs' books - so far I've read the first two. I love the tv show Bones!

    Have a great week!

    1. I've never watched Bones, but the rest of my family loves it. I will have to see if it's on Netflix. I need to pick up the next Reichs book as well; it's been a few years since I read the first one! :-/

  8. I just can't seem to be able to read more than one book at a time. I will start try to at least do two. Happy reading to you! http://sidnereading.blogspot.com

    1. I keep them straight by making sure they are very different. Non-fiction before bed, fiction the rest of the time, stuff like that. It helps me read a bigger variety, or else I would just feast on fantasy and historical fiction all the time.

  9. I can't believe I've never read The Heart is a Lonely Hunter...something to add. Enjoy your week.

    Here's MY MONDAY MEMES POST

  10. I really need to read The Heart is a Lonely Hunter - I read it when I was younger and didn't really understand it. I loved The Physick Book of Deliverance Dane!!

    1. I read it when I was in college and blocked it out. Now I know why. I've barely started The Physick Book, but I do not want to put it down!

  11. I've heard good things about First Person America - Hope you like it :)

    1. I am enjoying it. It's got so many 1 or 2 page stories, it's a perfect before-bed read.
