I have been devouring books recently. Ok maybe not devouring more like sneaking reading into every spare second I can find each day. Twelve minutes before I need to leave for work? Time to pick up a book. Half an hour before I need to be asleep? Grab a book. Twenty minutes left of my lunch break? Oh yeah I’m reading a book.
My reading tastes are always changing. Earlier this year I went on a young adult lit. kick and read The Hunger Gamesand the Chemical Garden Series. I’m also always trying to read something for book club, like Steven King’s 11/22/63, but I can’t always finish them.
Here’s what I’m reading now:
The Shape of Mercy
I’m surprised how much I am enjoying this book. I took one look at the front cover and just though, ”Oh no, I am NOT in the mood for period literature.” I was pleasantly surprised. The book is about a young college student transcribing the diary of a young woman accused of witch craft during the Salem trials.
Not a typical subject for me, but the writing is good. I’m completely invested in the characters and a little sad that there are so few pages left before I finish.
