Whatcha Reading? Wednesday

| | Comments (2)

Well, as you know from the entry below, I've just finished Prince Caspian.

I also finished off the Bill Bryson book I've been working on (finally!), but I forgot to return it to its owner tonight. Boo.

I finished My Life in France by Julia Child. I want to go to France!!!!!

Mrs. Mike still sits on my nightstand, but I cannot quite get into it at the moment. So I am going to put it aside for a bit and read the new book that came in the mail today: Blue Shoes and Happiness by Alexander McCall Smith. It's the 7th entry in the #1 Ladies Detective Agency series. I love this series, and think that Precious Ramotswe is a creation for any author to be proud of. I also got the next book in the series, The Good Husband of Zebra Drive, which, I am quite sure, will jump out of the stack and into my hands as soon as I finish Blue Shoes.

Also on the stack? The Voyage of the Dawn Treader by C. S. Lewis. But maybe not this week.

How 'bout you?


I just finished "David Golder" by Irene Nemirovsky (who is better known for her later, unfinished book "Suite Francaise".) A very compelling portrait of an aging wealthy business man in the early part of the 20th century.

I'm currently reading "Mistress of the Sun" by Sandra Gulland. I had very much enjoyed her Josephine B. trilogy about the wife of Napoleon Bonaparte. The current one is about Louis XIV and is very descriptive of life at that time. Hard to put down.

Next on my list is "Mara, Daughter of the Nile" by Eloise Jarvis McGraw. It's a children's novel, but I'm studying the ancient world at the moment and wanted something to read set in Ancient Egypt.

i'm still reading "wicked" -- you know how long it takes me to get through a single book. i am really enjoying it though and plan on getting more of his works, at the very least the "son of a witch" sequel.
