  2. Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen. I'm hoping I like it better than Persuasion, which I just finished.

    1. Not a Persuasion fan? I have a theory about all us literary types. In university, you were either a lover of Austin or a lover of the Bronte's. I'm a Bronte lover! Austin's just never done it for me...;)

  4. The Zombie Survival Guide is a fun book. Have you ever read "How To Survive A Horror Movie"... that one's a lot of fun too.

    This month I'm reading a bunch of books by my blogger friends.

  5. The books I've been reading are no where in the genre of yours. I like Historical Fiction and have read about 8 books this summer including Passage on the Titanic, True Sisters and More than Miracles, a paperback by TC Christensen about the making of the movie "17 Miracles". I recommend them all as good reads!

  7. I'm almost done with the YA novel I HUNT KILLERS by Barry Lyga (?) and up next is Gillian Flynn's new one, GONE GIRL. I have been looking forward to it since I first heard it was coming out! :)

  8. I just came from the library where I bought three used books for 50 cents each. They all look like light reading, which I need for now.

    The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society - Shaffer and Barrows
    Something Borrowed - Emily Griffin
    Little Bee - Chris Cleave

    All are NY Times bestsellers so they should be at least okay. Oh yeah, also The Awakening by Kate Chopin. I think I read it already though.

    1. I've read The Potato Peel Pie Society--it's a cute book. I haven't read Something Borrowed, but Little Bee isn't really light reading, but EXCELLENT.

  9. I love the variety you have there! I am a boring old one book at a time gal. Right now it's How to Lose Friends and Alienate People

    1. That sounds like a book I would really enjoy! :)

  10. I have not heard a single one of those books except for 'extremly loud & incredibly close' which is on my reading list. I'm reading 'the book of disquiet ' by Fernando Pessoa which is more of an bunch of essays rather than a novel but the language is quite beautiful.

    have a great day.

  12. I'm reading Jonathan Franzen's Freedom, 5 pages in, and wondering if it's for me, already. I'm very glad you're reading about surviving the zombies. This sounds very practical and I'm sure I'll be coming to you soon for advice.

    1. If you can make it to WA when the fun begins, you will be fine. Mountain man has assured me that he's very capable with a machete.

      On the other hand, I can only read three pages at a time because it's just hilarious, so I may never get to the end before the zombies attack.

      Dang laughter! It will get ya every time...;)

  13. Hi, Lisa, I'm driving by on my Post A to Z Challenge travels and wanted to let you know I'm getting a real kick out of your blog!

    I heart Max Brooks' "Zombie Survival Guide." I know it's meant to be humorous but I remember getting seriously chilled as I read it, a few years ago. It does seem to be a topical read, given the weird stories appearing in the news the past couple of weeks! (And to M.J. Fifield, above - that "How to Survive a Horror Movie" is hilariously fun!)

    I just finished MaryJanice Davidson's "Undead and Unstable," and am fixing to re-read Jane Austen's "Persuasion."
    Some Dark Romantic

  14. I am a HUGE Karen Kingsbury fan, I love her books and I am reading a book written by her right now...its from the "Bailey Flanigan Series" and so enjoying the reading this Summer.
