Friday! What are you reading?

Friday Book Club! What are you reading this week?

I’m planning on curling up with Eloisa James My American Duchess. She is the queen of witty, sexy dialogue and I have really been looking forward to this one.

And I’ve already read Virginia Kantra’s CAROLINA DREAMING, but since it’s coming out this week I’ll just mention that I love it and recommend it!

Other than that, my daughter had me read RAPUNZEL’S REVENGE with her (a graphic novel by Shannon Hale and Dean Hale which I think you all were the first to recommend to me. She had read it a while back but kept insisting I should read it, too, so she finally picked it as her bedtime cuddle book and I have to say it was excellent. I recommend it, particularly if you have girls who love adventurous heroines.

Also, for those of you looking for good books for girls, we picked up Friday Barnes by R.A. Spratt at the library and loved it. A great, humorous voice, with a very smart heroine. “Friday was on her third lollipop and she still hadn’t solved the case”. (A stolen diamond.) Excellent. I think we might have to order the next ones from Australia and not wait for the U.S. release.

What about you? What are you reading? Anything you recommend? Anything you’re looking forward to?

    This week I have finally and irrevocably consigned Incognito to the bin ( tried it all ways read out loud to dyslexic son,read myself and audio book) fascinating subject but like Thinking Fast and Slow its not readable. It does hit a subject that I have been mulling over for awhile, in that, is it reasonable to expect profound thinkers to also be able to write. In lieu of these two books I have got Chang Ha-Joon’s Economics The Users Guide he had a great series of articles in The Financial Times over the summer including one on, believe it or not chocolate!
    I love that you read with your daughter it really is one of the greatest joys and fascinating which books resonate between the generations, Swallows and Amazons, yes Little Women,no and the new discoveries one makes. However it becomes a little more daunting with a dyslexic when the current request is Simon Sebag Montifiore’s The Romanovs all 1000 pages out loud, help!
    To compensate for this I have been reading Thea Harrison who I find quite patchy.
    Also tried Flowers From The Storm hadn’t realized its historical, for some reason historicals usually feel quite heavy handed to me. Often because there has been the Scottish castle in the driech very romantic, very cold and the word laird seems to have a mystical appeal. Even when its historically right as Deborah Harkness was in Shadow of the Night it still grates. I was fascinated that Georgette Heyer is used in your teaching as she is one of the few I have encountered where the whole period issue is handled with style.
