I am currently reading
Say you're one of them by Uwem Akpan: I have just one more hour left to listen to on this audiobook. So far, I listened to the two novellas - My Parent's Bedroom and An Xmas Feast. Both were very touching, but I am not too impressed. For one thing, they seemed very detached. Chilling yes, but detached. One of my friends on Goodreads mentioned that her audiobook had one short story missing. Since I have only one more hour left to listen to, I am assuming my copy too has one story missing! Big Bummer!
The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien: This is one of my much looked-forward to reads. I had never read this book before and am loving every page of it!
My reading plans for the next week
Her Fearful Symmetry by Audrey Niffenegger: I am planning to go into this book with no expectations. Blank out The Time Traveler's Wife from my mind, along with the many reviews I have heard. I wonder if I might enjoy it then? Actually like it? It's going to be tough doing that, but I look forward to reading this book.
Daddy Long-Legs by Jean Webster: A classic! I'm just getting around to it. There have been some good reviews for this one in the Book blogosphere.
The Chopin Manuscript by Jeffery Deaver (Audio book): 15 mystery writers came together to write this book. This one is 6 hours of audio on my audiobook.Check out what others are reading here!
