I'm just wondering what's everyone's reading now.

I've just finished Engleby by Sebastian Faulks. And after that intense book, I decided to read something a bit lighter - Moms night out.

Next - Divergent
I just started reading Lean In by Sheryl Sandberg and so far I'm loving it!

I'm going to look up Engleby.

About to start Loot, about how treasures from one country wind up in another. It's non-fiction.

I Know why the Caged Bird Sings by Maya Angelou.

Great book. Well i just finished today.

That's a sad one. ^

Fonki, I requested Engleby from the library. And I decided to delay Loot until after I read a mass-market piece of cr@p about a lady werewolf.

Wth? Life is short.

What did u think of Engleby? It was a bit of head wrecker for me. The main character really annoyed me. I won't spoil it though for those yet to read it.

After that book I read Gone girl. I just saw the trailer with Ben Affleck. I can't wait to watch the film.

I've just finished all of John Greens books cept Paper towns. I really enjoyed em - massive teenage years flashback. Lots of laughs.

I also read Hacker - 1st of trilogy which was interesting. I might get the rest of the trilogy. I'm waiting for a kindle sale on those.

I'm now reading Stuck in downward dog which I thought would be really funny - but alas it's more cringe than humour.

I'm listening to audio book Fahrenheit 451 which is amazing considering it was written in the early 1950s.

Not sure what to read next - maybe Paper Towns. Or I might continue with some of those trilogies. Or check what's going on with the book club. Decisions decisions

Happy reading folks!

I thought Engleby was interesting, but it felt a bit heavy-handed at times. Thanks for the rec.

Currently reading Kate Atkinson. Loved Life after Life and Case Histories, Started Early, Took my Dog a bit less. I'll be following up with her other novels.

Also browsing Jane Austen's England.

What am I not reading should be the question of this!
Avid reader, have picked up:

Mornings in Jenin by Susan Abulhawa (love love it so far and I'm only 10 pages in; happy there's a glossary in the back for all the Arabic and explanation of prayer/salat, etc.)

Witches of East End by Melissa de la Cruz (I like witches and I started watching the series this month)

I'll Be Right There by Kyung Sook Shin (have wanted to read this author for awhile; I want to read more translated-into-English-from-Korean works)

Landline by Rainbow Rowell (I get all swoony each time she describes the men and women's relationships in her books. Gives me goosebumps. I enjoy all of her works, but my least fave was Fangirl)

All the Light we cannot See by Anthony Doerr (have been reading the most historical fiction I've ever read about Europe during WWII. The chapters are really short/choppy. Not sure if I like the style or not yet...)

The Silkworm by Robert Galbraith/JK Rowling (good mystery; am I the only one put off though by how many times the author writes that the main character's hair is "not nice" and is "like p/ubic hair"????? Side note: I imagine Robin as a young Kate Winslet in her 20s/30s time)

I also have Queen Sugar and Soy Sauce for Beginners on rotation. I love stories about women and their businesses/career triumphs.

Last Relaxer: 12/24/2012
Weekly Products I'm Using:
KCKT or SM JBCO Leave-In Conditioner
Grapeseed Oil
my hair is normal-ish porosity / dense / fine+medium strands
Dead Until Dark by Charlaine Harris
First book in the Sookie Stackhouse series that TrueBlood is based on.
Sycamore Road by John Grisham. In this novel he returns to the place of his first novel which was made into a movie: A Time to Kill. I like all the Grisham novels.

Previously, he was a lawyer, but I forgive that lapse in judgment since he writes a crackerjack book and he is literate and amusing.
2/c and some 3A.
Protein sensitive but can use occasionally
Highly porous. Color over grey.
Best 1st day method: Super Soaker
Stylers: Mix Curls in a Bottle into everything for shine. Terrible pj
Sometimes try roller sets - classic glamor but I prefer my curls.
Every day is a gift
An Illustrated History of Korea: ancient times up to 1945

Thought it might be nice to start watching some of my Korean period dramas again, and this helps fill in some gaps of knowledge.
