What Are You Reading?

Sheila over at Book Journey hosts this meme that gives you the opportunity to share the books that you have been losing yourself in lately and also the ones that you are looking forward to picking up next.

I recently finished reading this book on my Kindle:
Last week I met with my book club to discuss A Redbird Christmas by Fannie Flagg.  We usually read a Christmas themed book during the month of December.  From past experience we have learned that Christmas novels are usually pretty light and just for pure entertainment.  This one was not an exception and everyone enjoyed it for what it was.  The best part of our meeting was the gift exchange though!

What I'm reading now on my Kindle:
Since I had the week off after Christmas I finally had a chance to check out the public library option for the Kindle.  The Night Circus is the first book that I was able to get, but since I can only keep it for one week I'm sure I am going to have to request it again.  I can tell you that I am really enjoying it so I will definitely request it right away!

What's next:
While I am waiting for another library copy of The Night Circus, I decided to go ahead and get started on Night Road by Kristin Hannah.  I already read this one about a year ago and really enjoyed it, but I will need a little refresher as our book club will be discussing Night Road next month.

So what has been keeping you busy lately?  I woke up with a horrible cold on New Year's Day so that really slowed me down last week.  I am finally starting to feel like my old self again so this week I'm hoping to get started with my exercise regimen.

I get frustrated with the one-week borrowing periods. Hope you enjoy The Night Circus as much as I did, though. :)

I loved Night Road, hope it is a good discussion. Some may not like the mother, I enjoyed her.

I recently read The Night Circus and loved it. You can probably finish it in one week because it's so compelling!

I thought my local library's 2-week lending period for e-books was too short, but 1 week is terrible!

I adored A Redbird Christmas as well as Night Circus.

I can't wait to see what you think of The Night Circus -all the buzz it's gotten has made me a little leery.

I've been wanting to read the Night Road as I've heard good things about it.

Enjoy all your books!

PS Good luck with the exercise program!
