Two Books I’m Reading Now…Actually Probably Three

Posted October 10, 2011 by Asheley in Uncategorized / 11 Comments

Last Monday (in the spirit of Book Journey‘s It’s Monday, What are you Reading?) I told you about my habit of reading multiple books at one time, and I listed the four books I was reading at the same time. Today, I’m not reading quite as many, but it is only because I am pretty captivated by this piece of genius: 

The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
Published by Doubleday
Publish Date:  September 13, 2011 

I waited forever to start this book and I was finally able to start it this weekend. At only a few chapters into the book, I am IN LOVE with it. There has certainly been a great deal of buzz around Erin Morgenstern’s unique circus story, and I completely understand why. I am mesmerized so far, and I highly doubt that will change. 

Little House in the Big Woods by Laura Ingalls Wilder
Illustrated by Garth Williams
Published by HarperTrophy
Publish Date:  January 1, 1953

I’m still reading Little House in the Big Woods out loud to my children in the mornings before school, although we are almost finished…

Dearly, Departed by Lia Habel
Published by Del Rey Books
Publish Date:  October 18, 2011

I’m thinking since I usually like to read more than one book at a time, I’ll probably start on Dearly, Departed some time today. Because that’s how I do things around here. Also, I think this cover is pretty cute.

  1. Okay, so, this Night Circus business. 1) I've heard good things. 2) I've heard that the SPINE is beautiful? Can you tweet me a pic of this thing? My curious eyeballs need to see!

    Also — multiple books at the same time! POLYGAMIST!

  2. I just got Dearly, Departed from netGalley! I've already read the first few pages, but had to put it down because I have others to read first! AHHHH I'm so excited to read it! I'm a book polygamist, too! I read anywhere from 2-4 books at a time! Sometimes, they're just too good to wait to read!

  3. I'm currently reading The Night Circus! Well I started it a couple of weeks back, but haven't finished it. I took a break because it was THAT awesome. I've been struggling with reading lately so I decided it might be a bad time to pick it back up…I might start it again in the next few days.

    Can't wait to see what you think of Dearly Departed! I want to read that one!
