What I’m Reading

Well, if you went by the information in my sidebar it would seem that I haven’t read anything since last month! I’m happy to say that is not true. I’m reading just not updating it for some reason. I thought today I would share what I’m working my way through now.

First is the book I’m reading for the Global Literature Book Club at work, The Anomaly  by Herv√© Le Tellier.

In June 2021, a senseless event upends the lives of hundreds of men and women, all passengers on a flight from Paris to New York. Among them: Blake, a respectable family man, though he works as a contract killer; Slimboy, a Nigerian pop star tired of living a lie; Joanna, a formidable lawyer whose flaws have caught up with her; and Victor Miesel, a critically acclaimed yet commercially unsuccessful writer who suddenly becomes a cult hit. All of them believed they had double lives. None imagined just how true that was.

The selections for Global Lit are hit or miss for me. (I think a lot of it depends on who is recommending the book.) I’m listening to this one one audio and it is really captivating so far. The premise is interesting, the characters have me curious to know more about them, and I can’t wait to see where it goes!

I’m also readding Tomorrow and Tomorrow and Tomorrow by Gabrielle Zevin. 

In this exhilarating novel by the best-selling author of The Storied Life of A. J. Fikry two friends–often in love, but never lovers–come together as creative partners in the world of video game design, where success brings them fame, joy, tragedy, duplicity, and, ultimately, a kind of immortality.

I have not had a chance to delve into this one yet (my hold was just filled on Libby), but I am so excited that it is finally my turn! Drew finished the audio this weekend and absolutely loved it. This book is a contender for another book club at the library (one that someone else manages), and I have not heard one bad thing about it yet.

Are you reading anything great at the moment?

  1. yes..I am reading a book explaining on I Ching, an ancient Chinese divination text, interesting

  2. I always enjoy the what I’m reading posts and get great ideas to add to my hold list at the library. Had no idea what the tomorrow and tomorrow book was about though kept seeing it pop up in suggestions, maybe I’ll give it a chance. My current book is one of those good but not great kind of choices, the latest in the Memory Man series by David Baldacci, can’t even remember the name of it but it’s still enjoyable.
