It's Monday! What Are You Reading?




I'm still reading The Heart's Invisible Furies, although I should be finished in the next day or two. I'm so glad I decided to stick with this book (and was able to renew it a second time). It's really turning out to be a winner!






I've just finished the audio version of Joe Biden's book and need to decide what I want to listen to next. My book club is discussing News of the World (Paulette Jiles' historical novel), which I read this past October, but I also have it on audio so I'll probably listen to that to refresh my memory before the meeting.
It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? (#IMWAYR) is hosted by Kathryn at Book Date. It’s a place to meet up and share what you have been, are, and about to be reading over the week. It’s a great post to organize yourself. It’s an opportunity to visit and comment, and er… add to that ever-growing TBR pile! This meme started with J Kaye’s Blog and then was taken up by Sheila from Book Journey. Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn at Book Date.

  1. I really need to read News of the World since it's set in my part of the world. Several of my book group members have read it. I'll probably try it on audio since it's not very long I don't think.

    1. Kay, I've started listening to it as a re-read for my book group discussion next week. I'm really enjoying it and think you would, too.

    1. Sharon, I am so glad you mentioned Stolen Beauty! I've never heard of it, but after reading the description I think it's something I would really enjoy. Thanks!!

  3. I've heard a lot about The Heart's Invisible Furies. I bet Promise Me, Dad is a rather tough read. Have a great week!

    1. Kathy, I'm almost finished with The Heart's Invisible Furies and I'm going to be sorry to say goodbye to these characters! Promise Me, Dad isn't nearly as tough to read as I thought it might be. Even on audio. Maybe that's the problem...

  4. I've been on the fence about Promise, Me, Dad because -- as Kathy said -- I bet it's a emotionally rough read.

    1. Candace, I didn't really find Promise Me, Dad to be terribly emotional to read other than one particular passage. I wonder if it would have been better to read it rather than listen. Biden's isn't the best reader I've ever listened to.

  5. I love it when a book I'm not sure about ends up surprising me in a good way!

    1. Iliana, I am so happy The Heart's Invisible Furies has made it's way into my heart. I'm going to miss these characters when I finish it tonight. :(

  6. I keep seeing advertisements for the Biden book. It sounds intense. Have a great week!

    1. AJ, the Biden book is good and not as intense as you'd think. Thanks for stopping by!

  7. You've probably finished The Heart's Invisible Furies by now. My SIL ended up reading my copy (she's a librarian and a huge reader) - and liked the first 200 pages, was bored by the second 200, and loved the final section. Guess I'll hang on to the book a little longer in case I decide to try again. Sigh.

    1. JoAnn, I think your SIL had a similar experience to the book as I did, although I wasn't bored with the second 200 pages. I think I was a just uncomfortable with Cyril's careless behavior and the crude details of his sad youth. I was much happier with him when he finally grew up! I really enjoyed the overall story and am very glad I didn't give up on it (or on Cyril). I think you'll be glad you read it, if you go back to it later on.
