My Current Reading List

I am a reader who often has multiple books that I am juggling, or on my to be read (TBR) list. I thought I would share the current books that sit there currently.

The Southern Book Club’s Guide to Slaying Vampires by Grady Hendrix : This is one I am currently reading and it is very funny, very tongue in cheek and altogether quite entertaining.

Mexican Gothic by Silvia Moreno-Garcia: I am currently reading this one as well, and I am enjoying it so far. The NPR review was so intriguing I came home and bought it immediately.

Crossings by Alex Landragin: I got this as a new member of the Fantastic Stranglings Book Club through Nowhere Bookshop which is owned by author Jenny Lawson. I haven’t cracked it yet, but I am excited to do so.

Witches. Sluts. Feminists. by Kristen J. Sollee: I heard Kristen on the podcast The Devil’s Music with Pleasant Gehman and loved her style, so I picked up this book. I am excited to start it.

Fat Girl Finishing School and Nothing is Okay by Rachel Wiley: Rachel is a Columbus poet who is so talented, and I have been reading these in bits and bobs. Fun Fact: I saw Rachel at the Fat Babes Club of Columbus Body Positive Pool Party last year and I was utterly star struck and just stared at her across the pool like a huge creeper.

Great Godesses by Nikita Gill: More poetry. This is a gorgeous collection of poems based on mythology. I have been really inspired by poetry recently, and my next class in my MFA program is Fundamentals of Poetry.

I have more books on the way that I ordered from local bookstores on Independent Bookstore Day Saturday. I am on a brief hiatus from school so I am hoping I can finish one or two of these.

Are you reading anything fantastic right now? Are you a book juggler who reads more than one book at a time like me?

  1. It varies with me. Sometimes I’ll only have one book on the go, other times I’ll have several. If I have more than one though it’s usually a different format, for example a braille book, a PDF version of something on the computer, an eBook on my Kindle, an audio download on the Kindle, and an audiobook on CD or cassette on the go in the stereo.

    At the moment I have two on the go, since right now I’m re-reading “Stonehenge” by Bernard Cornwall, and also reading “The Time Paradox” (the 6th Artemis Fowl book) by Eoin Colfer.

    • I have heard the Artemis Fowl books are great but I haven’t read any. Something to add to my list.
      I love a good audiobook. I have the first two Jim Butcher Dresden File books downloaded, but I havent started them yet.

  2. I also tend to have several books on the go at once. Usually I’m reading a new-to-me fiction, a new-to-me non-fiction as well as re-reading some fiction (before bed). But sometimes I also add a second re-read or a comic/graphic novel or even a second new-to-me book if it’s different enough from the first.

    These books sound cool! Definitely will be adding some of them to my To Read list (Mexican Gothic is already on it).

    • I have been supporting indie bookstores (that is definitely what it is and not book hoarding) so I am trying to get through the new stuff but usually I definitely have re-reads happening. 🙂 I need to pick up some new graphic novels.
