What I'm Currently Reading...

I'm currently reading two books for school:

The Grass Is Singing: A NovelFor the last two weeks our book for discussions/reaction paper is The Grass is Singing by Doris Lessing. It's a good book, but it's depressing.




Midnight's ChildrenMidnight's Children by Salaman Rushdie is a book we'll be discussing later in class but it is the book I picked for my final project so I need to read it now. I'm moving a lot slower than I would like to be, but it's a difficult read and I want to get as much out of it as I can!


My current audio book is:

Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop TalkingSo far I'm really liking Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World that Can't Stop Talking by Susan Cain. It really is a book that I think I wouldn't have been able to get through if I was reading the print book, but listening to the audio book on my commute to and from work I have time to listen and process the information. Being an Introvert I'm really interested in a lot of the information that basically explains why I am the way I am.


My current Jane Austen read is:

Murder Most AustenI was sent a copy of Murder Most Austen by Tracy Kiely from the publisher to review for our Jane Austen Group. It's not my typical genre of book, Cozy Mystery, but I'm enjoying it so far. Her whole series is connected in some way to a Jane Austen theme and if this book is any indication she's done her research on the author and the fandom surrounding our beloved Jane.  This may be the first cozy series I read!
