Currently I'm about to start reading:

Perfection by Julie Metz

Also reading the next installment of The Woman in White.

We're going away on Wednesday to visit our daughter and her family for a few days so its doubtful whether I'll be getting much reading done during that time.
These are the two I'll take with me .......

One Child by Jeff Buick
Lavinia by Ursula le Guin


  1. Have a great trip and enjoy your choices if you get to them.

    My post is here.

  2. I love the cover of Perfection. Lavinia sounds really good. I think I checked it out from the library once but didn't have time to read it. I hope you enjoy whatever you read this week.

  3. We Need To Talk About Kevin is such a powerful read. I hope you really enjoyed it. I look forward to reading your thoughts on it.

  4. LeGuin, a favorite! I haven't read enough! Looking forward to your review.

  5. Interesting selection you've read and reviewed. I need to get through my library books before the textbooks arrive. Here's what I'm reading this week.

  6. You did awesome! Have a great week & happy reading!

  7. Seems like you had a very good week, and another one planned. Haven't read any of LeGuin's books in a while, but Lavinia looks interesting. Hope you enjoy!

  8. Enjoy your family time. Love the cover of Perfection; hope the contents are as good as the cover :)
    Have a great week and happy reading, whatever you have time for.

  9. Oh, I love the cover on Perfection! You have several delectable looking books this week. Enjoy!

    Looking forward to catching up with ur blog

    Enjoy ur break.


  12. I like the look of Lavinia - different from her usual sci-fi books.

    Teddyree - I started Perfection last night and not that impressed.

    Jennifer - I loved Peony too.

    Sheila - Kevin made a big impact. Amazing book.

    Thanks everyone for dropping by.

  13. Thanks for stopping by today! I can't wait to read your review for We need to talk about Kevin. It's a haunting story about nature s nuture but in a wierd way I think everyone should read it. It's brilliantly written but frightening.

    Have you started it?

  14. I totally dropped the ball for joining that Northanger Abbey readalong. I hope you're enjoying it :)
