What are you reading, right now?

I’m not really someone who can read and write at the same time, but I’ve managed to read three books so far this year:

1. These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman

2. Pawn by Aimee Carter

3. The Program by Suzanne Young

I had mixed emotions for the first two, but I LOVED The Program. Best book I’ve read in ages! What are you reading at the moment?

    Jodie, I shall look out for ‘The Program.’ My recent reading has covered a strange selection:
    Suzanne Fagence Cooper’s ‘The Passionate Lives of Effie Gray, Ruskin and Millais’. This was based on a lot of letters and gave a good insight into life in the 1800s. It interested me because of her husbands, one a writer, the other a painter. Worth a look. Have read a couple of thrillers and about to read ‘By Blood’ by Ellen Ullman, recommended by Margaux on her blog.
    I have ‘borrowed’ your book reading photo for a later date, thank you!! Barbara

    The days are long gone when I merely had one book on the go. My main read at the moment is:
    General Sir Hector Macdonald, story of a romantic career. by David Campbell
    Hector MacDonald was a highly regarded Victorian soldier who started life a crofter’s son and worked his way up the ranks in the British army. In Scotland he was known as the Fighting ‘Mac. A sexual peccadillo caused his to take his own life. A secret funeral was planned. Word got out and 28,000 mourners turned up at (6 am in the morning!)
    I know a MacDonald (it’s a large clan) who says there’s a lot of conspiracy theories concerning Sir Hector.For example, he was reputed to have been seen several years after his supposed suicide at a diplomatic function in Japan. Official papers on him should have been released after 100 years; it is believed that they will be retained for a further 50 years.
    David Campbell’s book was written before Sir Hector’s tragic suicide.

        I still have Images in my mind ‘From the Mountains of Madness’. Lovectaft, along with his writing buddies, R.E. Howard and Clark Ashton Smith, inspired my young imagination. To create a cosmogony that would make the proselytizers of science uncomfortable; an interesting ambition.

    As Stephen King says: “If you don’t have time to read, you don’t have the time (or the tools) to write. Simple as that.”

    Isn’t that the truth. Right now I’m reading “The Seneca Scourge” by Carrie Rubin (a medical thriller) and “Structuring Your Novel” by K.M. Weiland.

    I insist you read anything by a YA writer by the name of Hannah Moskowitz. She is a GENIUS. I’ve read two of her books, Teeth and Break, and they were amazing. If you are as crazy about YA as I am, she needs to be on your TBR list.
    Rainbow Rowell, author of Fangirl, is also an excellent one. 🙂

  33. I usually read a completely different genre from what I am writing. It’s typically a book I have read before so I’m not focusing on someone else’s story while I am trying to write my own. So at the moment I am rereading mostly Julia Quinn. I can get into it enough to be entertained and fall in love with the characters but not so much that I lose my story. I can’t read a brand new book that I have never read before while I am writing.

    This may come as a strange phenomenon to you all, but honestly can’t place myself into reading books even though I love writing and write a lot. It’s weird how I can have lots of imagination while writing, though when I have to read books, I simply can’t manage to make the images move. This may of course be an effect caused by being obsessed with movies and all the factors of storytelling within them such as music, sounds, voices, scenery etc. It is all these things that I miss when reading books and therefore my attention while reading easily fades away. I’m trying to read The Hobbit at the moment and still barely find successing the pleasure of reading.
