What books are you reading?

In the same vein as movie/music threads...

"Books? You want books?! Ha! We've got books on hairy otters, on onions and on mars! All the fungus you could care for, plus, three triple zillion stars. We've got books on flossing teeth, plus three books on tossing sheep. If we spent our lives just counting books, we'd never get to sleep!" -Leopold the Librarian ("The Great Wishy Woz, Part 2")

I finished Far Side of the Sea by Kate Breslin yesterday morning, very good book. I'm currently reading With You Always by Jody Hedlund it is the first book in her Orphan Train trilogy. Very good so far.

I've heard good things about Jody Hedlund and haven't gotten around to reading any of her books yet. One of these days!

I'm starting "Kidnapped at Christmas" by Maggie K. Black. I know it's a bit of an odd title for June, but it's next in the series I'm reading.

Mathematical Mindsets - Jo Boaler

It's for a college class, but I'm really enjoying it so far. It's about getting rid of the assumption that some brains are built for math and others aren't, instead adopting a growth mindset when teaching math to children that will empower them to learn much more than they ever thought they could.
I love the ToO!

I'm reading "The Blue Castle" by Lucy Maud Montgomery. It's one of my all-time favourites and I like to re-read it now and then.

I love to find a kindred spirit!

I just read "Protective Measures" by Maggie K. Black. She's a solid author - I was pleasantly surprised by the mystery and how things worked out.

I enjoyed Moments We Forget, can't wait for the next book in the series. Yesterday I finished The Medallion by Cathy Gohlke. Very good. Very sad and intense at times due to the fact it takes place during WW2. I am now reading Flights of Fancy by Jen Turano. It is the first book in her American Heiresses series/trilogy. Very good so far. I needed something light with humor after the Cathy Gohlke book.

I agree that Jen Turano is a great light author! They're fun and easy to read.

I'm starting "Rescuing His Secret Child" by Maggie K. Black. I wish the book didn't have such an overly dramatic title, but I expect the actual book to be good!

I'm about to start "Cold Case Secrets" by Maggie K. Black. It's her newest, and it's been perfect timing because I've been reading through her books and the new one came out just as I finished her other books.
