What are you currently reading?


I loved Barbara Kingsolver’s previous book The Poisonwood Bible, and this, her latest novel, was shortlisted for the Women’s Prize for Fiction 2013.

What did you recently finish reading?


This book really surprised me! I’ve read it before my pre-blog days and thought it good, but second time round I loved it! My post can be found HERE.


This stand-alone by the great Margaret Atwood is part of my Short Stories Challenge this year. It’s also part of a series, which I didn’t realise so am looking forward to the next installment. My review will be up very soon.

What do you think you’ll read next?:


I’ve only read one Simon Mawer book before, The Glass Room, and absolutely loved it so looking forward to this! It will be a review by myself and my book-blogging sister, Chrissi.

What are you reading this Wednesday? Please leave your link and I’ll come take a look! Happy Reading Everyone!

  • I can’t wait to see what you think of The Girl Who Fell From The Sky…it’ll be interesting to see if we think the same again. Happy Reading!! 🙂

  • Oh I’m so jealous, I would love to visit Scotland! I’ve heard of Barbara Kingsolver and Margaret Atwood but must admit I have not read any of their books yet.

    Thank you so much for the visit to my WWW! Enjoy your reading this week!

    • Also you were interested in Quiet. I’m listening to it on audio and it’s very insightful. I wasn’t unaware of the subject, so some of it is not surprising information, but definitely more in depth. So far I think it would be a fantastic book for both parents and employers to read to help them create environments that people would do their best in, rather than trying to force people to fit into a mold that isn’t suited for them. So I would definitely recommend it!

  • Ohhh, Scotland! Color me jealous! Hope you had a great time!

    I loved The Poisonwood Bible, but haven’t read anything else of Barbara Kingsolver’s. I probably ought to change that. 🙂

  • I love the Scottish Highlands! My husband’s clan has roots there!

    I love Kingsolver, too. Have you read Animal, Vegetable, Miracle? Not a novel, but a terrific read.

    • Ah, that’s brilliant, my family are from there but I had never been to that part before. I haven’t read Animal, Vegetable, Miracle, I’ll definitely put it on my TBR pile thanks! 🙂

  • Oh I want to read Flight Behavior, glad to hear you enjoyed it! I need to read another Atwood too, you get into such interesting genres!! Super jealous about the vacation too – hope you had a wonderful time 🙂

  • Comments make me go to my happy place...
