Although it's technically the night before, I wanted to take the time to post a quick list of what I'm excited to take a time out and read this Sunday. As I've mentioned in a previous post, I finally cut myself some slack when I realized that the summer is just not as big of a reading time as I originally thought. Nevertheless, I am reading a number of great books and can't wait for tomorrow to roll around so that I can take a seat and read for a bit!
Here are some of my reads:
A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini. I'm actually listening to this on audio book, but it's grabbed me and I find myself staying in the car to see what will happen next. Such a gut-wrenching story!
Fasting, Feasting by Anita Desai. I recently read and reviewed The Inheritance of Loss by Anita's daughter, Kiran Desai. It was brilliant on so many levels, and I really enjoyed it. Although not an easy read, one that filled my need for a powerful message. Fasting, Feasting is along the same lines, and I'm already up late reading it, so I know it's good!
The Grand Sophyby Georgette Heyer. This was a sadly overlooked book that I forgot to get through last month before the re-release date of this novel. So far, I'm thoroughly enjoying the escape "Regency" read this is for me.
Sleep Deep (52 Brilliant Ideas): Simple Techniques for Beating Insomnia is a book I picked up on sale last weekend and haven't been able to put down. However, it's not a story, so you find yourself reading a bit at a time, writing in the book, and then reflecting on its suggestions. Honestly, the next time I have a really troubling bout of insomnia, this book will be a fantastic resource! (I'm also reading this for my Rejuvenate & Renew Challenge.)
These aren't the only books I'm reading, but are the main ones on my list right now. I can't wait for my "set aside" time so that I can dive back into one, or all of these great reads.
