The Book Chat: Currently Reading

I'm so excited to be co-hosting The Book Chat with Jessica from Sweet Green Tangerine today! This week's topic is: What are you reading?


I recently joined the Literary Junkies Book Club, hosted by Pink Heels Pink Truck and By the Porchlight. The January book was The Casual Vacancy by J.K. Rowling, she of esteemed Harry Potter fame, so I was excited to finally have an excuse to start it. I had been waiting to buy it until I caught up on all my reports for work, and then the Kindle version was briefly available for only $8! I was stoked. Unfortunately, I'm only about 11 percent of the way through, so I wasn't able to participate in the monthly Twitter chat on Tuesday, but I am still planning to finish the book. If you want to join in on the fun next month, the February book is The American Heiress.

I was also planning to update you on the state of my 2013 reading resolutions today, but with all these technical difficulties I've been having, I don't want this post to be any later than it already is. So, check back tomorrow (or this weekend) for that update. Thanks again for asking me to co-host, Jessica! I'm so honored. :)

You'll have to let you let us know if you like it! I want to read it just because J.K. Rowling wrote it. I haven't picked it up yet for fear of being disappointed.
I LOVED Harry Potter and I don't think it will live up to my expectations.

I really want to know what you think of this book! I really want to read it but don't know anyone firsthand who has read it and want some honest opinions on it. I think her writing was one of the many things that made Harry Potter so good, so I hope it can transfer into a different genre.

I am working on The Casual Vacany too but haven't been able to get into it. I read The American Heiress last year and didn't love it, but was entertained enough.
