Although I'm a rabid reader and I love nothing more than discussing what I've read, I am not usually so great at updating my recent reads on the Library page of my blog. Also, I tried Goodreads for about a minute until I realized that I wanted to go back and list EVERY SINGLE BOOK I HAVE EVER READ SINCE THE BEGINNING OF TIME and that seemed like a losing proposition on so many levels (but if I ever find myself laid up with two broken legs or anything it's totally on my to-do list, because how awesome would that be?!?!?!?). Then I ran across the Twitterature linkup at Modern Mrs. Darcy and it seemed to be a perfect way to share what I'm reading and to find new books to add to my ever growing list of things to read before I die.
So here are my latest reads, Twitterature style.
Tell the Wolves I'm Homeby Carol Rifka Brunt
Grief is a funny thing. Unlikely friendships can be healing. Beautiful characters, beautiful story. #NotReallyAboutWolves
Unseenby Karin Slaughter
Formula mystery/suspense at it's best. Will Trent undercover. Sara saves the day (of course). #IWillAlwaysHateLena #Cons&Drugs&BikersOhMy!
The Ocean at the End of the Laneby Neil Gaiman
140 characters is not enough to describe this amazing, compelling, exquisite modern fairy tale. Read it now. #READITNOW!
Look Againby Lisa Scottoline
Is that MY kid on the missing kid poster? Surely not, because that wouldn't make a very good book, would it? #SkipThisOne
Sisterlandby Curtis Sittenfeld
Dumb characters making even dumber mistakes. Very little ESP or otherworldly senses. #NotWhatIExpected #UseYourGiftsForGOOD
Next up on my to-read list are:
The Husband's Secretby Liane Moriarty
My friend Natalie recommends it and that's good enough for me. #ItWillBeDepressing #SheOnlyLikesSadBooks
The Girl You Left Behindby JoJo Moyes
Me Before You was the best thing I've read in a long time. I hope this one is half as good. #JoJoMoyesForTheWin
And there you have it - my recently reads and my soon to be reads, Twitterature style. What have you been reading lately? I promise I won't hold you to 140 characters.
