Currently Reading 11/7

7 11 2012

I really don’t keep a formal TBR – because it’s constantly changing. I really don’t know what I will want to read from one minute to the next.  I am constantly running across new books, free books, library books.  I just know when the time is right for a certain book.

Here’s what I’m working on now:

American Lion: The Story of Andrew Jackson’s Presidency by Jon Meacham – Yup, I just finished Thomas Jefferson: The Art of Power by Meacham, and now I’ve moved onto Jackson.  It’s a pretty good book so far.  I love the Petticoat War!  Amazing stuff.

Twelve Months by Steven Manchester – A really good book about a man given 12 months to live and what will he do.  A little sad and heartbreaking, but still enjoying.

The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon – Reading it for the Book Worms Book Club.  This is my 4th time through.  Join in if you want!

One Thousand Gifts – by Ann Voskamp – A Christian book about Thanksgiving.  How appropriate.

Unstoppable by Nick Vujicic – Kind of a little stalled on this.  Lots of good truths though.

Finished since my last update:

Dinner with a Vampire by Abigail Gibbs – 4 Star book – Review coming soon.

Highland Destiny by Hannah Howell – 3 star Romance.  Kind of a fun little read to break up some of the non fiction I’ve been reading.

The Carousel by Rosamunde Pilchard – A short little book.  Not as good as some of her other things I’ve read, but still a nice read for a stormy afternoon.

The Shadowy Horses by Susanna Kearsley – 4.5 stars – Historicalish Fiction – I’ve fallen in love with Kearsley’s unique writing style of blending the past with the present.  Will be posting a review soon.

Skywalker: Close Encounter on the Appalachian Trail by Bill Walker – AT Memoir – 4 stars – I always enjoy a good AT Memoir.  Walker’s is good and I look forward to reading about his adventures on the Pacific Coast Trail.

Where’d You Go Bernadette? by Marie Semple – 3 stars – Humor/Fiction – I was thoroughly delighted with the first half of this book, less so with the ending, but still a unique and adventurous story.

Coming Soon (I think):

City of Dark Magic – by Magnus Flyte

Does This Church Make Me Look Fat by Rhoda Janzen

The weather is getting colder and the days getting shorter.  Primo winter reading time coming soon!
