Our FridayReads

Here at Team FridayReads, we are practicing book addicts. Because we suffer from this contagious and life-saving malady, we often read multiple books at a time. This means our hair is extra shiny, we walk with extra pep in our step, and our #fridayreads won’t fit in one Tweet!

Here’s what we’re reading around these parts:


Bethanne, Our Fearless Leader:  I’ve delved a bit back into my TBR pile and fished out EMILY, ALONE by Stewart O’Nan. Loving every single carefully observed moment. I’m also finishing a semi-trashy yet poignant new novel from Emma McLaughlin and Nicola Krauss, BETWEEN YOU AND ME, about a Britney Spears-ish singing superstar and her very dysfunctional family.

Rebecca, Runner of Giveaways and Doer of Many Things: I’ve finally moved on to BELOVED by Toni Morrison (woohoo! It’s the fifth of nine novels, so I’m almost halfway to the finish line) and am also loving BILLY LYNN’S LONG HALFTIME WALK by Ben Fountain and DROP DEAD HEALTHY by A.J. Jacobs.

Amanda, Seller of This, Thats, and Other Things: A GAME OF THRONES by George R.R. Martin,CAKES AND ALE by W. Somerset Maugham, and THE NEWLYWEDS by Nell Freudenberger (May 2012, Knopf)

Paige, Intern of Media Social and Otherwise: I’m finishing the riveting THE SHOEMAKER’S WIFE by Adriana Trigiani, and (in honor of its paperback release) I’m rereading on of my favorite books of 2011, THE FAMILY FANG by Kevin Wilson.
