Feature and Follow (2)

Hi all!  I had a lot of fun meeting some new people during last week's Feature and Follow, so I figured I'd do it again this week.  F+F is hosted by Parajunkee's View and Alison Can Read--stop by either of their blogs to check it out!

This week's question: What are you reading right now?  How do you like it?

Right now, I'm reading Jane Green's The Beach House (book cover photo in sidebar).  So far, I love it!  I enjoy women's fiction that feels "smart"...books that go beyond shopping and dreamy boys and impossibly silly situations, and that deal with real-life relationship issues.  This book does that.  I'm about 50% done, so I should have a full review for you next week...but so far, it looks like it will be a good one!

I also just started a new audiobook--The Mermaid Chair, by Sue Monk Kidd.  I am still only on the first disc, so no big review yet, but I will say I enjoy the narrator quite a bit.

What are you reading this weekend?


  1. Glad you are enjoying your book!

  2. I read The Mermaid Chair a while back. I wish I could remember more about it. All I really remember is that I liked The Secret Life of Bees better ;)

    I've seen The Beach House floating around the blogosphere lately, I'll look forward to your review.

  9. I read The Secret Life of Bees and The Mermaid Chair is on my TBR list (and it is sitting on my bookshelf)- I look forward to reading your thought on it. The Beach House sounds like a great book!

  15. It's nice to read things that aren't always silliness, I agree... although I usually foray into Adult Fiction or Fantasy... it can be so gritty!
