What We're Reading Wednesday: June 1, 2016

What I'm Reading:

These are my before bed books. I'm about a third of the way through Nonna's Book of Mysteries, and definitely enjoying it. I just started my re read of Poirot Investigates (it's the June Agatha Christie read for Maidens of Murder Bookstagram Book Club), and read the first short story.

I haven't gotten a lot of this read on my phone recently. Life's been really busy, so when I'm walking my dog I'm unfortunately having to check other things on my phone like it's been raining a lot, which has meant one hand for my dog's leash and one hand for the umbrella.

This is my hard copy read. I'm almost halfway through, and completely hooked. The Before and After setup definitely creates a lot of tension, as do the different narrators.

I just started this ARC yesterday on my Kindle, and am flying through it. If work didn't have me so busy and so absolutely exhausted (I'm a Pre-K teacher, and its the last week of the school year for the kids, which has meant a ton of events, cleaning the classroom, and helping my students process things emotionally), I would be done with this already, it's that good a read.

What are you reading this Wednesday?

Also, on a related note, if you live in the Chicagoland area, my parents' house is going to be part of a 66 house Northcenter Neighborhood yard sale this Saturday, June 4, from 9-3. I will be there selling a ton of books. If you'd like the exact address where I will be, just let me know! :)


  1. I started reading All Fall Down by Jennifer Weiner last night. I love all of her books. It's so exciting picking up a hard copy book for the first time in maybe a year and a half (versus audio books, and I haven't even read one of those in a while). It's about a blogger with a possibly foundering marriage, a super-sensitive five year old, and a father with Alzheimer's. She starts abusing prescription drugs and eventually goes through rehab.
    Have you read anything else by Audrey Niffenegger (I'm assuming you've read The Time Traveler's Wife)? I was taken aback when I came across her novel, Her Fearful Symmetry, at a Salvation Army store last week. Apparently I've been living under a rock because not only has that book been out since 2009, but she has several other books as well. I ordered Raven Girl and Ghostly from Amazon, which might particularly appeal to you!

    1. Hey hon! I haven't read any of those books, and they all sound great! (I have read The Time Traveler's Wife, but nothing else but her-and I actually have a copy of Her Fearful Symmetry on my TBR shelf that I need to bump up the list). I'm so glad you're getting to read hard copy books again!
