Friday Reads 8/19/16

Oh man. It's Friday. Which means it's almost the last day of my vacation. Sigh. And since I am taking the gate at the volleyball tournament tomorrow, I have to work Sunday, and both bells and dance start Sunday night, I don't really expect to have a lot of reading time. But, when I do read, this is the plan.

Judging a Book by its Lover

Judging a Book By Its Lover by Lauren Leto - I just picked this one up this week, but I couldn't resist it. I love books about books. I'm over half way through already, and it's just hilarious. This won't take much more time.


The Accursed by Joyce Carol Oates - This book is close to 800 pages, so I've decided to read it slowly while I'm also reading other, shorter books. I'm about 150 pages in so far. I have a feeling it's about to get good. The local beauty just ran away with some guy from the altar. Like, kissed the groom and ran out of the church. I have no idea what's going on with that, but I think I'm about to.

Garlic and Sapphires

Garlic and Sapphires by Ruth Reichl - This one meets a challenge to read a food memoir, otherwise I probably wouldn't bother. It's not really a food memoir, per se. Reichl is a restaurant critic so it is about food, but I didn't think I could deal with a celebrity chef memoir. I don't hold chefs in that high a regard to begin with, and I certainly don't want to read about the gossip in the kitchen. I don't want to know. I like eating out.

So that's what's on my plate for this week. What will you be reading?
