It's Monday! What are you reading is hosted by One Persons Journey through a world of Books. Each week we spotlight the books we are reading, planning on reading or just finished reading.
What I'm currently reading:Jane by April Lindner I just started this book so I don't have an opinion yet. Here is how Goodreads describes the book: "Part irresistible romance and part darkly engrossing mystery, this contemporary retelling of the beloved classic Jane Eyre promises to enchant a new generation of readers." I am very excited to dig in.
What I'm currently listening to on audiobooks:Revolution by Jennifer Donnelly. From Goodreads: "Two girls, two centuries apart. One never knowing the other. But when Andi finds Alexandrine’s diary, she recognizes something in her words and is moved to the point of obsession. " I am nearly 1/4th of the way into this story and Andi hasn't discovered Alexandrine's diary yet. She'd better do it soon because I am sick of the Andi who has a "whiny, depressed, bratty girl" persona. I want to get on with the story and more about the French Revolution and less about unhappy Andi.
What I just finished reading:Cutting for Stone by Abraham Verghese. I have no doubt that this will be my favorite book club selection of the whole year. As Verghese said, he wanted to write a book about medicine and he has done it with a marvelous setting (Ethiopia) and a wonderful cast of characters. I highly recommend this book to any adult readers, especially for book groups. You will want to talk about this book when you are done.
What is up next:Mudbound by Hillary Jordan. I am really excited to get started on this book. It is considered by some to be one of the best debut books of the decade.
Have you read any of these? What are your thoughts about them?
