#FridayReads Jan 28

It’s Friday again, and time for another #FridayReads! Every Friday, we booklovers chat it up about what we’re reading. Here’s my list:

Water for Elephants, by Sara Gruen – Sad to say, I’m not enjoying this book. Actually I’m not enjoying the audio book. I have the physical book and I’ll probably switch to that. The audio-book is always a matter of a compelling story that I can get lost in and an excellent narrator. I DO NOT like the narrator for this book and I find I just don’t care about the main character quite yet. I’ll pick up the eBook version this week where I left off.

Damage, by John Lescroart- Another new book I started but have only read a page, so far. I LOVE Lescroart so I’m not worried about this book at all. Hoping to spend most of my weekend buried in this one.

Roseflower Creek, by Jackie Lee Miles -I got this book as a freebie from Amazon/B&N. Just started it, seems interesting and a good read, but I’m not far enough into it to say what I like, don’t like. It’s set in the 1950’s south (so you know I’m all over it) . This book begins, “The morning I died it rained. Poured down so hard it washed the blood off my face.” I’m hooked.

Stif , by Mary Roach- Still chugging away at this book. I really want to enjoy it, it’s just sort of boring. I am going to try to get it out of the way this weekend so I can stop looking at it on my Currently Reading list.

The Help,  by Katherine Stockett- I’m listening to this audio book in the car. I read the book back in 2009, thoroughly enjoyed it and am happy to be revisiting it. Since it’s an old book, I’m not counting it toward my 2011 goal.
