Up Next:

As soon as I finish this post, I’m going to start looking for a new audio book. Any suggestions? I need something light after The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks. I also need to get started on Still Alice by Lisa Genova for my book club. I’m not very excited about this one, to be honest. Give me a reason to look forward to it? Please?

What are you reading this week?

  1. Henrietta Lacks was my serious audio after Daughter of Smoke and Bone (which I agree was fantastic). We must be going in reverse!

  2. Loved the Henrietta Lacks book. A lighter follow up might be Daughter of Smoke & Bone which is fantastic on audio.


  3. I don't listen to audio books so i am afraid I am no help!

    Have a great reading week!

  4. I haven't read Still Alice so I can't help you there. Sorry. I have The Way of Shadows on my shelf. I haven't gotten to it yet. I look forward to your review.

  5. I loved Still Alice. I was fascinated by the way she put the reader into the mind of someone with Alzheimer's. It really is intriguing. I hope you enjoy it as well.

  6. I liked Still Alice, and I also liked her other book, Left Neglected. Hope you can get into it.

    Have a great week!

  7. Two of my recent audiobooks, The Art of Fielding and The Invisible Ones were really good. I have not read Sill Alice, so I am of no help to you.

  8. Henrietta Lacks was such an interesting book. The parts about her family gave me real pause as I read about poverty in America and the science was fascinating (something I didn't expect)

  9. I've been meaning to read Still Alice…and I also need to read her other book, Left Neglected…it's on my Kindle.

    Enjoy your week!


  10. I finished a lot of books last week, but I didn't review anything. I will have a lot to catch up on when I finally get time to breathe this summer!
