It’s Monday, February 9th. What Are You Reading?

What Are You Reading
It can be a little frustrating how publication dates (of books I like) come in waves. On one hand, I always appreciate a good book, on the other, it would be nice if I could space the reading out a little more. Last week The Marauders – amazing – came out. And this week the lovely The Glittering World will be released, as well as Get in Trouble by Kelly Link (an uneven, though mostly solid story collection).

I’m also finishing up Mosquitoland and I’m about a quarter way through the brilliant (well, so far) Bastard Out of Carolina. I can’t believe I put off reading that for so long.

  1. This is the second glowing mention of heard of The Marauders…will have to add it to my TBR now! And I’ve also heard good things about Bastard Out of Carolina. And, I also feel like this month is especially chock full of exciting releases!

  2. My copy of Get in Trouble finally arrived after a snow storm delay. But I agree, everything came out all at once, and I’m working my way to it slowly. I’m excited to get to it eventually!

      1. That’s how I feel about all the other short story collections by her that I’ve read, but the ones I loved always made it worth it. Magic For Beginners is probably my favorite of hers.

        Thank you for today’s review! I’m super excited now that I have a preview of all the good ones.

  3. Ooo I want to read Bastard Our of Carolina. Been on the TBR for a while.

    I’m reading a Champlain bio (bleh) and a trashy romance right now. Listening to Bring Up The Bodies which is phenomenal. Still waiting for my first really great read of 2015!

    1. Get in Trouble is brilliant in spots, but overall not my favorite. It’s worth reading just for the story Summer People though.

      And Mosquitoland is YA, but thematically interesting for me. 🙂

  4. Bastard out of Carolina has been on my TBR for ages. Glad to hear you’re enjoying it. I just put one of the Kelly Link’s older books on hold, Magic for Beginners. Haven’t read anything of hers before and wanted to go older before newer.

  5. I’m reading Russell Hoban’s Riddley Walker. It’s phenomenal and incredibly hard slow work. I’ve never heard of any of the ones you’re reading. If they are US titles though, they often come out later in Aus.
