It’s Monday June 30th, What Are You Reading?

preparing the ghost

Phew, it’s been a few weeks since I shared my current reading, so I have quite a bit to catch up on. June is still going strong and I’ve read several books since I caught up last, including The Hundred-Year House by Rebecca Makkai, The End of the City by David Bendernagel, High as the Horses’ Bridles by Scott Cheshire, God is an Astronaut by Alyson Foster, The Road to Burgundy by Ray Walker and Fourth of July Creek by Smith Henderson. Reviews are on their way! Right now, I’m digging into two great pieces of non-fiction: Elizabeth Mitchell’s Liberty’s Torch and Matthew Gavin Frank’s Preparing the Ghost.

It’s Monday, What Are You Reading?

  • You always have the best reads. I always look forward to hearing what you think about your history reads, especially, so I’ll be keeping an eye out for the Liberty’s Torch review!

    • I was so excited when it showed up that I kind of shoved all my other books out of the way to read it – I’ll definitely update!

  • Nice looking covers. All of these books are new to me. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

  • I’ve not heard any of any of these books, I’ll make a mental note to look them up later. I’m reading The Marriage Plot by Jeffrey Eugenides .

    • I’ve been very curious about that since I absolutely adore The Virgin Suicides and Middlesex. Looking forward to seeing what you think!

  • I’m reading Moyes’ One Plus One and have The Hundred Year House on my New Releases for July list. Nice reads!

  • Whew! That makes my head spin…especially since I’ve only read 3 books this month. I know…I’m appalled, too.

    Oh no….more books for the reserves list! I’m currently loving Above the East China Sea by Sarah Bird…..

  • That is a lot of books for one week :P good luck. LOL I know it is a couple of weeks worth, sounds like a great selection

    The Hundred Year House and Fourth of July Creek look good.

    Have a great new reading week. Looks like last week was good for you.
