After two business trips in the past two weeks, I feel like I’ve had loads of travel time to devote to reading. After taking on the 770 page behemoth that is Dublin by Edward Rutherford, I’m currently appreciating a few shorter books. I’m also linking up with Show Us Your Books as usual!
This week’s Reading Roundup!
Work Book (for lunch time reading):
Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury – HBO is releasing a movie based on this classic in May. It’s been quite a few years since my last read, so I figured now was a perfect time. The trailers for the movie look incredible. Luckily, at less than 200 pages I should finish this in plenty of time.
The Hating Game by Sally Thorne – I searched my library for an easy breezy break from historical fiction / sci-fi and this delivered. Two co-workers who detest each other are vying for the same role. The tension grows and turns into something neither of them expected. Can’t beat an office romance and a happy ending!
Where Hope Begins by Catherine West – My first book tour read! I’m reviewing this in June over at Literary Quicksand. It arrived in the mail already so I decided to get a jump start. I’m excited to get back into reading a Christian fiction novel.
On the Banks of Plum Creek by Laura Ingalls Wilder – I decided to start rereading the Little House series last year and it continues to delight. As Laura gets older, the stories become a bit more complex. I’m identifying more with Ma this time around and find her willingness to go along with Pa’s adventures truly admirable.
Home: Interstellar by Ray Strong – This is my current read for IndieReader and it’s surprisingly decent, so far. A sci-fi novel about a young woman trying to save her family’s spaceship and find a mysterious “home” planet.
From Around the Web:
Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine Book Review – Full book reviews aren’t usually my cup of tea, but I had lots to talk about with Eleanor!
Books and Bottles – Books AND wine?? Yes, please. The subscription box of my dreams.
How to Build Your Home Library on a Budget – I love buying books every chance I get, but I’d never be able to support this habit buying them full price. This is a great list of resources for finding discount and used books!
