These four books have current bookmarks in them:
Howards End is On the Landing: A year of Reading From Home by Susan Hill. Some of my favorite books are books about books (or reading, writing, and loving them).
Enough: Finding More By Living With Less by Will Davis, Jr. I find myself wanting to argue with the author at times, which is not an altogether bad thing. It's definitely making me think.
The 10 Habits of Happy Mothers by Meg Meeker. Who doesn't want to be a happy mother?
Passing Bells by Phillip Rock. This series of novels (of which Passing Bells is the first) have just been re-released. I'm reading a much older copy from the library, but I am definitely into it. It predates Downton Abbey but it does remind me of the first and second seasons a bit. (Which I mean as a good thing)
• What did you recently finish reading?
The last book I finished was:
The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield. Draws you in. Full of mystery, abuse, neglect, gothic atmospherics, madness, twists and a distinct literary style. I figured out one of the "twists" a little too early, and this book would certainly not be everyone's cup of tea but I couldn't put it down.
• What do you think you’ll read next?
These are two from my stack that might win the "read me next lottery":
The Circle Maker by Mark Batterson
Daughter of Time by Josephine Tey
And I really need to re-order my Martyn Lloyd-Jones book because someone else snatched it away from (via a library hold) and I wasn't finished yet. I hate returning unfinished books but I also hate library fines. Such are the sorrows of being addicted to books, I suppose.
