This is a weekly event initially hosted by J. Kaye at J. Kaye's Book Blog, now by Sheila @ One Persons Journey through a world of Books, to celebrate what you are reading for the week as well as books completed the previous week.
Books completed last week
Zilch! :-( I even went whole days without reading! It was just too busy!
Books reviewed from the week before
- Rainwater by Sandra Brown
- City of Ashes by Cassandra Clare
I am currently reading
The Help by Kathryn Stockett: I probably will complete this book before this post is up, but at the moment, I have the last 150 pages to finish. I am totally loving this book! The prejudices and racial tensions of those times, the politicians playing the race card too often, Martin Luther King's much anticipated walk, the struggle to win equality - all these elements can be felt through the book, and more than once, I could find parallels between the events in the book and some events of today, though in different contexts. It's definitely an eye-opener.
Open Season by Linda Howard: I can't say I'm really enjoying this. It's not boring or even bad, but it's dragging, and once I finish with The Help, I will be hoping that the pace of this book fastens!
The 13th Hour by Richard Doetsch: This book is due back in the library on Thursday, So I'll have to do some speed reading and finish this off by then. I definitely want to read it, since I've waited two months for this thriller.
Precious / Push by Sapphire: This one is due on Friday. But luckily, it's only 192 pages. I guess I can finish it in a few hours.
