Review: A Long Way Gone: Memoirs of a Boy Soldier by Ishmael Beah

Review: Summer Rental by Mary Kay Andrews, read by Isabel Keating

Review: Mermaids in the Basement by Michael Lee West


Nothing. I didn’t quite finish The Grapes of Wrath before our book club meeting today, but I gave it a good shot.

Currently Reading:

The Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck

The Little Giant of Aberdeen County by Tiffany Baker, read by Carrington MacDuffie

Up Next:

I may try to re-read The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald before the movie comes out. I haven’t decided yet though. The sunshine and warmer weather have left me wanting to read lighter fare!

  1. I haven't read The Great Gatsby yet. Shame on me! I was supposed to have read it in college…

    I am curious about The Little Giant of Aberdeen County. I love that title and I've heard it is a good book club book.

  2. Why do they keep making movies that I need to read the books for? Fortunately, that isn't the case with The Great Gatsby, but still!

  3. Have fun at book club! I loved The Grapes of Wrath – hope you like it too and that you have a good discussion about it.

    Have a good week!

  4. I do enjoy Mary Kay Andrews, and The Summer Rental was such fun. Have a great week!


  5. I read the book when I was about 13 and I was disappointed, but I think I should reread it now and see if I get more from it – my tastes were very different back then. The trailer for the new movie looks INCREDIBLE! Totally going…

  6. I'm sure The Great Gatsby will be a popular read over the next few weeks – I hope you enjoy it!

    Have a great reading week!

  7. I also have the The Great Gatsby on my list to read this week as well!! Nice selection of books you have!

  8. I didn't finish any books this week either but you are lucky to have some reviews stored up, review-wise my blogging week was a dust bowl.

    I have been thinking about rereading The Great Gatsby before the movie too. As much as I want to see it, I fear that Hollywood will blow the Daisy/Gatsby affair out of proportion. Or maybe I'm just a pessimist?

    Have a great week in reading!

  9. Just read a light one this weekend too as I didn't make it to the conference due to snowstorm! yikes! glad I was home safe and could read something enjoyable 🙂
    Happy reading week even if it's less than you hope for..

  10. Ha! I just watched the promo for Great Gatsby on my TV!! 🙂 Fantastic timing.

    Have a lovely reading week!! 🙂 What are you reading this week @ the Brunette Librarian’s Blog

  11. I am with you – sunny days make me want to read lighter stuff as well. And I love Mary Kay Andrews!

    And I am definitely going to read Bliss soon!
