Friday Reads 5/12/17

It's Friday! How did that happen?!

I have no idea what day it is anymore, I just get up and go to work. Actually, tomorrow, I'm taking the dancers to the zoo. So that's different. Still don't have time to read, though.
But if I did, here's what I would read:


Commonwealth by Ann Patchett - I'm enjoying this a lot, so far. I'm almost halfway through it, and I have no idea who this book is actually about. The person whose perspective drove the first chapter, is no longer the point of view, so I'm not sure what we're really doing. But I'm enjoying the ride.


NeuroTribes by Steve Silberman - I keep this on the list because every once in a while I pick it up and read a few pages. It's not top priority and it takes a bit more brain power to read, so I don't pick it up often.

Books for Living

Books for Living by Will Schwalbe - Still reading this at the dinner table (how rude!). I know. But usually I'm there alone, so no one minds.

I have recently been feeling the itch to sit down with a book for a couple of hours and just fall in. I think about all the books I have waiting for me on my shelves, and I just want to curl up with a stack and read all day. This is obviously a fantasy right now, but one I like to think about. What would I read?

I can't even decide.

My Lady Jane has been looking at me for a few weeks. I see you.
A Natural History of Dragons has been calling to me as well.

I have hundreds of unread books on my shelves and I just got a couple more this week.
The Love Interest by Cale Dietrich - In this alternate universe, the spy organizations use teenagers to get close to the kids who are perceived to be future power brokers and get information. Two boys are assigned to this one girl, one is a bad boy, and one is a nice boy. Which one will she fall for? It matters because the other one dies. But, then they fall for each other. Twist!!

I also got The Mothers by Brit Bennett. This is about a teenage girl who gets pregnant and how it affects her whole community, but apparently, the gimmick with this is the Greek chorus of mothers in the community who weigh in on the situation.

So you see my dilemma. So many book, so little time!
