Catching Up

Things have been crazy! Lots going on...I changed branches on October 1, and one of the things that came with that change is a new program - an afterschool program for elementary school age kids, at yet another branch. So far, it's going great and I'm having lots of fun with it.

I haven't been doing much reading...partly because I've had lots of other things to do, but also partly because of new fall t.v. shows...and watching t.v. cuts into my reading time...

Here's a little of what I have read:

The first three Myron Bolitar novels by Harlan Coben...and then I read his first young adult book that was recently published - Shelter. It focuses on Myron's nephew Mickey, and I liked it better than the others. I think in part, because it seemed to move faster. You can absolutely read it without having read any of Coben's adult titles...but after finishing, I read the newest Myron novel - Live Wire - which was really interesting because it parts of it were Shelter from a different perspective. While I'm not in a rush to finish the rest of the Myron novels, I always like having a series to fall back on.

Rules of Civility by Amor Towles - This was smartly and gorgeously written. Really, some of the sentences were just so beautifully crafted. I do think the writing surpassed the actual story, which was good, but just didn't have the wow factor I was expecting. That being said, I'll absolutely read Towles's next book.

Ruby Red by Kerstin Gier - a really fun ya time travel book...first in a trilogy

What have you been reading and really enjoying? Any recommendations? Or, what new shows are you watching? I'm really hooked on Revenge and am enjoying Pan Am, too.
