Reading and To Be Read

This one on my own. Once I got past the slow start in the beginning, I started to enjoy it! I am not a big Jane Austen fan. Shocking I know (lol) The only period book that I love is Jane Eyre. I could read that one over and over again. And I have. But Jane Austen's books kind of tire me out. This one is not so complicated as far as the language. And apparently has a twist on the original Mansfield Park. I have never read it. 
But truthfully, I think I am definitely going to give it a try now that I have read Murder at Mansfield Park. I'm curious in how the characters are different from that book.

Reading this one with Evan at bed time. He is really loving this series right now. It's the third time I have read this book, but it's fun seeing his reactions to the series for the first time. And his endless questions about what is going to happen are getting harder and harder to deflect.

To Be Read

Looking forward to this one. I don't know that much about it, but it seemed intriguing. Especially that cover! I love books with great covers :)

Still looking forward to this one.

And the reviews weren't so great on Janet E.'s book, but since I've read a lot of her other books, I thought I'd give it a try. I've been known to start a book and not finish it, so this could be one of them. We'll see :)

What are you reading right now?
Any good recommendations?


  1. i'm reading Mini Shopaholic! good for someone who doesn't wanna think and just wanna laugh when she reads. like me. LOL.

  2. I'm trying to finish up The Shack, but it's not one I have devoured! Glad you put these up-I'll be checking at the library now!

    I LOVE Jane Eyre, but I also like Austen. My sister got me on a Elizabethan England kick and I've been reading everything I can. "Kathryn" by Anya Seton is one of my favorites!
