I am in the middle of some really, really good books right now. In print, I started May’s “I’ve Always Meant to Read That Book” Challenge selection, and I am pleased to say that I am LOVING it. Angle of Repose is a beautifully written, complex family saga that spans generations. Wallace Stegner’s writing reminds me of Wendell Berry, though I supposed with their respective ages, it is actually the other way around. (Speaking of the challenge read-alongs, I need to write up my post for The Grapes of Wrath, which I liked a whole lot less.)
I’m also reading London Falling by Paul Cornell. Apparently, he is a writer on Dr. Who, and even though I’ve never actually watched that show, I’m sure I would love it, so I agreed to be on his tour. I’m not sorry. London Falling is a dark urban fantasy slash cop thriller, and it’s totally engrossing.
My third print selection is A Dublin Student Doctor by Patrick Taylor. It is a prequel of sorts to his Irish Country Doctor series, and it is highly enjoyable. I’m especially fascinated to read all the details of medicine and surgery in the 1920s.
I just started my fourth print selection: A Land More Kind Than Home by Wiley Cash, but I am pretty sure from the reviews I’ve read that I’m going to love it.
The book I’m currently enjoying the most, though, is the one I’m listening to on audio: Where’d You Go, Bernadette by Maria Semple. Sandy was right – this book is freaking amazing!
What are you reading on this last Sunday of April?
