Review: Cinder by Marissa Meyer, read by Rebecca Soler

Review: Curse of the Blue Tattoo by L. A. Meyer, read by Katherine Kellgren

Character Connection: Captain Augustus “Gus” McCrae from Lonesome Dove by Larry McMurtry (Link up a post about a character you love anytime during the month!)

Review: Tithe by Holly Black


Um, nothing. I’ve gotten bogged down in Doctor Zhivago. Please tell me that it picks back up after his second stint in the military. Please?

Currently Reading:

Doctor Zhivago by Boris Pasternak, translated by Max Hayward and Manya Harari

The Wild Trees: A Story of Passion and Daring by Richard Preston

Under the Jolly Roger by L. A. Meyer, read by Katherine Kellgren

From Notting Hill With Love…Actually by Ali McNamara

Up Next:

I said this last week, but I really do expect to finish The Wild Trees, so I’ll be looking for a new nonfiction book. Any recommendations? I will have to start our next book club book, The Dry Grass of August by Anna Jean Mayhew by Tuesday, no matter where I stand with ol’ Doctor Zhivago.

What are you reading this week?

  4. I love the Larry McMurtry books in that series! I like Corporal Call the best. ;)I think Dead Man's Walk was my favorite.

    I love the movie Dr. Zhivago, but I have never read the book. I know I am chumping out. Maybe I will make it a goal to read next winter. 🙂

    Have a great wekek!

  5. Doctor Zhivago has been one of those books I have wanted to read for a while but have yet to make any effort to try to read it. Perhaps one day I will get to it even if I have to slowly pick away at it for several weeks.

  6. I just purchased From Notting Hill with Love…Actually – it looks like a fun read!!! I've had Doctor Zhivago on my tbr list ever since seeing the movie Must Love Dogs when John Cusack's character is always watching it.

    Have a great week!

  7. Looks like a great week ahead…enjoy! I'm curious about the Holly Black book.


  8. I struggled with Doctor Zhivago too. I got through it in the end and I could appreciate the writing but it didn't live up to this big love story for me. Not my favourite Russian classic.

  9. Notting Hill was on TV here the other day and even though I don't like Hugh Grant I do like that movie!

    Have a great reading week!

  10. I liked your review of Cinder! I just read Scarlet and I can't wait till next year when Cress is published. This is becoming one of my favorite YA series.

    I read the Dry Grass of August last year and thought it was like a combination of The Help and The Secret Life of Bees. Hope you like it.

  11. I grabbed From Notting Hill With Love…Actually recently as well, I need to make some room for it soon! Hope you enjoy it!
