I love weeks like last week when I get a lot of reading done. Especially when each of the books have 300-odd pages!
Books completed in the last week
The Kitchen Daughter by Jael McHenry: This was a sweet read! It was my first experience reading a fiction title with a foodie background, complete with recipes.
The Uncoupling by Meg Wolitzer: I actually enjoyed this more than I expected to. I've been saying this all day yesterday - Meg Wolitzer's writing is so beautiful that even if this book was missing in plot and characters (which it wasn't), I would have still remained hooked to the book.

Books on my nightstand
In a sense, I'm glad April is winding up. I've had a strenuous reading month and I'm eager to read for pleasure next month. Reading new and upcoming titles is cool, but that is stressful too, you know?
The Coffins of Little Hope by Timothy Schaffert: I haven't been able to read much of this last week, because of other books calling my name, but I still have just 40% left in the book, so I should be done in the next couple of days.
Far to go by Alison Pick: I know my review of this book isn't up until Wednesday and I still have half the book to go, but can I gush already? It's not often that I come across a book that hooks me from the first page and makes me sure that this is a WOW book even before I know where the book is going, but this one is IT.
The Long Goodbye by Meghan O'Rourke: There's going to be a lot of death and grief to handle here, so I hope I'm up to it. Still, I've heard good things about this one. I only hope it grips me quickly because I will have just a couple of days to devote to this one.
