Happy Spring! I know it has been Spring for some time, but lately it has actually started to feel like Spring. For me this is one of my favorite times of the year. The flowers are starting to bloom, I can read outside and not be freezing. I think this year I want to make it a goal to buy a hammock so I can lay down and read outside instead of just sitting on a blanket. Anyway, I wanted to touch base and share the books I am currently reading. Side note, I am surprised that I have gotten my currently reading from 5 down to 2. Woohoo!

The Female Persuasion by Meg Wolitzer

The Female Persuasion

I am about 2 chapters into this book and so far I am very much enjoying it. The author has done a wonderful job building the “scene” and introducing the characters. Her writing is very beautiful and I easily got lost in it. I am looking forward to continuing this book.

The Pillars of the Earth

This is a huge book and I love it. I picked this book up a few months ago on the recommendation of a bookseller. You can see the details of that adventure in my post Haul | Bookseller Picks My Books . It was a great adventure. Anyway I am about 200 or so pages into this book and it is so elaborate and wonderful. I can see there are going to be a lot of plots intertwining and I love it. I am very excited to see where this goes. In fact I picked up the second book in the series so I can pick it up soon after.

      1. I really enjoy short story collections. I feel like they are just the perfect length to sit a read one or two a day and not feel the stress of a cliffhanger. I might have to see if my library has an audiobook I can borrow. Thanks!

  1. Pillars of the Earth is one of my all-time favourite historical fiction books. I found all the details about building a cathedral to be fascinating! Did you know there’s another two books in the series that are set at different time periods? The TV series based on the first two books was fantastic as well. I hope you enjoy it! 😊

  2. Hi from the other side of the world 😉 It’s supposed to be autumn here, but it’s still all sunshine and stinking heat every day… we’ll take some of that cool weather as soon as you guys are done with it! I’ve been seeing The Female Persuasion everywhere lately, and hearing so many good things…! Hope you love it 🙂 Right now, I’m reading John Bunyan’s The Pilgrim’s Progress (of all things! hahaha). I’m about a third of the way in, and learning quickly what an influence it’s had on English literature.
