It’s been some time since we all talked about what we were reading, so let’s catch each other up. What are you reading right now? I MEAN BESIDES HOTSPUR’S BOOK, GUYS! That’s a given. (Plus some of us are waiting for the print version, so no spoilers.)
I went to the library on Thursday to pick up the latest book for my book club, but we won’t be meeting for a month, so I decided to grab something else to pass the next couple of weeks. I dawdled around the new fiction display in the hopes that I could find something 1) written by a woman, and 2) in a genre I wouldn’t usually be interested in. Those are a couple of the book-picking guidelines I’m trying to follow in 2016.
And that’s how I ended up with Rosamund Lupton’s The Quality of Silence. It’s about a British lady astrophysicist (!) and her deaf pre-teen daughter who journey into the Alaskan wilderness during that-time-of-the-year-when-it’s-always-night in order to find her husband, who is presumed dead by the authorities after a suspicious accident. This is very much not something I would normally try, but I have to say I’m enjoying it! It’s low-key thrilling and suspenseful, and it’s nice to read about someplace that is colder than where I am now. I’m a little under halfway through, and I want to finish writing this post so that I can get back to it!
What about you guys? BESIDES HOTSPUR’S BOOK, geez, I just said that!
