Ever since the February Reading Challenge, I've continued to prime a stack of books. Mind you, what goes in the stack doesn't always get read, for various reasons. With so many friends who are authors, I always have a few of their books to add to the stack. Plus, there's the constant flow of library reserves and long-awaited book releases.
The To Read stack helps me prioritize what I want to read. Since moving to my new house, books have been scattered all over the house, with varying degrees of effectiveness. After my last trip to McKay Used Books and stops at Barnes & Noble and Parnassus, it was time to prioritize and give the stack a home in the office.
Right after requests for book recommendations, one of the questions I'm often asked is "What are you reading?" Here's what I'm reading next.
Bachelor Girl- Betty Israel
I first heard about Bachelor Girl during an exchange with Rachel on Twitter. I'm always on the hunt for savvy books on singleness and, based on past exchanges, I trust Rachel's judgment in this department.
Life After Life- Jill McCorkle
There are two books titled Life After Life and both had been recommended to me in the past year. But I didn't decide to pick up a copy until a conversation with Miriam at Parnassus Books. When she heard about my hospice background, she immediately asked if I'd read this particular Life After Life. Her take on it has me ready to dig in.
Cooked- Michael Pollan
I love Pollan's books. I picked this up after seeing him talk a few months ago but I have yet to read it. For shame!
Earth and Sky: A Beautiful Collision of Grace and Grief- Guy Delcambre
Guy is one of my fellow writers at A Deeper Story and a phenomenal writer. I'm looking forward to his memoir.
Home Behind the Sun- Timothy Willard and Jason Locy
Tim is also a fellow writer at A Deeper Story. I've heard nothing but good things about Home Behind the Sun.
French Women for All Seasons- Mireille Guiliano
I've had this book for years, probably ever since reading its predecessor French Women Don't Get Fat, which I loved. Which, now that I think about, I also read in the summer. There's something about summer that makes me want all things French in my life.
The Book of Life- Deborah Harkness
Book #3 of the All Souls trilogy is finally here!!! I've been anxiously awaiting its release and cannot wait to dive in. Pesky library books are all that stands between me and the conclusion to Matthew and Diana's tale.
Written in my Own Heart's Blood- Diana Gabaldon
Although, maybe I should read book #8 in the Outlander series first, since I've been waiting for it for even longer. This is a true book nerd dilemma.
The Nesting Place- Myquillyn Smith
I fully intended to read this one before I moved but it's never too late for home decorating inspiration.
Now it's your turn: what are you reading?
