It’s Monday, What Are You Reading?

It’s Monday, What Are You Reading? is a weekly meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journey.  The purpose of the meme is to discuss books we are reading this week, as well as books we completed the previous week.

Books I Completed This Week:

Somebody to Love by Kristan Higgins: Cute and frequently funny.  A totally predictable romance, but satisfying.
The Disenchantments by Nina LaCour: I wanted to love this book but never connected with the characters and found their problems irritating.
Friends Like Us by Lauren Fox: It meandered a little near the end, but I really liked this sad little novel.  Review to come.

Books I’m Reading This Week:
What We Talk About When We Talk About Anne Frank by Nathan Englander: Looking forward to his short stories.
Goddess Interrupted by Aimee Carter: I’m worried about this one.

What are you reading this week?

  1. I got Friends Like Us from the library but couldn’t finish it because well, I just hated to see these friends torn apart. I may give it another try later but since there were requests I couldn’t even hang on to it right now.

    1. There’s no doubt that it’s hard to read about the destruction of that friendship, but I think Fox did such a beautiful job making Willa a sympathetic character even as she self-destructs…I don’t know. The more I think about the book, the more it grows on me.

  2. I’m bummed to hear you didn’t like The Disenchantments, as I’ve been eying it. What We Talk About sounds interesting… I like short stories, but am not always won over by the contemporary variety. I’ll have to keep it in mind.
