This meme is hosted by J. Kaye at J. Kaye's Book Blog, wherein I tell you about the many, many books I read at one time and the blogging that needs to shape up already.

1. Searching for Whitopia by Rich Benjamin (ARC)

Books I am working on:
1. Best Friends Forever by Jennifer Weiner (pg. 50 of 368) (ARC)
2. Hush: An Irish Princess' Tale by Donna Jo Napoli (pg. 61 of 308) (for a challenge, and just because I wanted to read it)

1. Serious Doubts: Why People Marry When They Know It Won't Last by Carl Weisman (pg.100 of 170) (ARC)
2. Bright Lights, Big Ass by Jen Lancaster (pg. 120 of 380) (just because I like her)

  1. I can't wait to hear what you think of the Jen Lancaster, I loved Bitter is the New Black.
    I read Children of Dust- it was really good

  2. Deb- I liked Bitter is the New Black a lot. Jenners liked this one better, but I liked the first one better. But again that could be because of what we were talking about on Twitter, too- in a reading funk of sorts. Children of Dust looks good. Glad to know it comes highly recommended from you. :)

  3. I love Jennifer Weiner books. They're great.

  4. I am looking forward to seeing what you have to say about searching for Whitopia. That looked like it would be a really good book, but I never picked it up because I am swamped with other books.

  5. I think all book bloggers are perpetually behind, so don't feel bad.

  6. I've read two Donna Jo Napoli novels--Sirena, which was about a mermaid (great book, but also frustrating for me. I'm still torn on whether I liked it or not) and Daughter of Venice, which I couldn't finish.
