On My Kindle

10/02/2012


Right now I'm reading In the Garden of Beasts by Erik Larson. It's a true story about the U.S. ambassador to Germany in the 1930s. It's disturbing and frustrating, but an amazing story. There are times where I want to yell at the pages because we all know the outcome and the characters seem so naive. But then again we have the luxury of living in hindsight.

What books are you reading these days. I'd love to hear! :)

I recently read that book and really enjoyed it! I totally agree that it's an amazing story but it was a little disturbing and frustrating. I just started Andy Cohen's book "Most Talkative." Loving it so far!

Ooooh, that sounds like a good one!

I'm in the middle of Tina Fey's Bossy Pants and just finished Is Everyone Hanging Out Without My by Mindy Kaling. I guess I'm looking for funny girl memoir-y inspiration!

Oh this sounds really good! I'm trying to read Wurthering Heights- I never read it before and it's really good but the old english and style of writing is really hard to get through

Ohh I haven't heard of this! I'll have to check it out.
I'm reading Sarah's Key and it's soo good. Very sad, but a wonderful story.

Just finished Caitlin Moran's How to be a Woman and cried, laughed, and sighed my way through it. I think you'd really love it.

Now onto David Mitchell's Cloud Atlas! (Must read before the movie comes out later this month!)

Krystal said...

I recently came across that book in a bookstore recently and thought it sounded great. Then I forgot about it until now! Thanks for reminding me to add it to my reading wish list. Can't wait to hear what you think when you've finished it!

Just got through How to be a Women and now onto Gone Girl, which I can't put down! I wish I could just sit and read all day long.

I read If I Stay and am currently reading Where She Went by Gayle Forman. That of course only when I have time to rest and put the Plato book aside. :(
