To play along, just answer the follwoing three questions:
1. What are you currently reading?
2. What did you recently finish reading?
3. What do you think you'll read next?
The Virgin's Lover by Philippa Gregory
I found this one to be a little awkward to read in public and after some strange looks at soccer practice, picked up The Lost Hours. Now I'm 100 pages away from finishing this and loving it!
Sisterhood Everlasting by Ann Brashares
I started listening to this before vacation and obviously didn't listen while on vacation. I wasn't really thrilled with how it started but I've been told it gets better so I am sticking with it!
Tuck Everlasting by Natalie Babit
I read this as my "1975" choice for The Century Challenge. We listened to it on our way to visit friends in MA. Since my son's name is Tucker, he was interested in it because of the title but we both quickly got wrapped up in the story of the Tuck family who never ages.
The Lost Hours by Karen White
Like I said above, I picked this up because it was awkward to read the Virgin's Lover in public. It has been on my TBR (and my shelf) for a couple of month and I really enjoyed it. It's about a woman who realizes after she dies that her grandmother had a story to tell and her regret in not listening to the story while her grandmother was alive. This really struck home with me as I work with the elderly and always wish I could know more about the lives they lived. Usually by the time I meet them, they're are pretty advanced with dementia.
Sing You Home by Jodi Picoult
The Chocolate War by Robert Cormier
