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: THE CHEMISTRY OF TEARS by Peter Carey (finishing!) and THE SONG REMAINS THE SAME by Alison Winn Scotch and SOME KIND OF PEACE by Camilla Grebe and Asa Traff (Asa’s name has all sorts of Sweeeedish ooomlauts and stuff).

Rebecca, Runner of Giveaways and Doer of Many Things: For the first time in months, I am NOT reading Toni Morrison! I’m still working on BREASTS by Florence Williams and have just startedKITCHEN CONFIDENTIAL by Anthony Bourdain to feed my craving for food writing. Hooray for nonfiction!

Amanda, Seller of This, Thats and Other Things: IN ONE PERSON by John Irving (he’s a bit wordy, innit he?), BEL CANTO by Ann Patchett, and THE ODYSSEY.

Paige, Intern of Media Social and Otherwise: THE ROCK STAR IN SEAT 3A by Jill Kargman (funny with a side of sass straight out of the gate), and the oh-so-lovely PICTURE THIS by Jacqueline Sheehan.

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’m reading The Sense of an Ending by Julian Barnes and A Partial History of Lost Causes by Jennifer Dubois–both are luscious enough that I want to play hooky!

Rebecca, Runner of Giveaways and Doer of Many Things: I’m reading PARADISE by Toni Morrison. Not going to make it all the way to the finish line of A MERCY by Tuesday, but that’s okay. This is my favorite of her novels, and I’m happy to have gotten to it. I’m also reading BREASTS: A NATURAL AND UNNATURAL HISTORY by Florence Williams and FUN HOME by Alison Bechdel.

Amanda, Seller of This, Thats and Other Things: I’m reading Homer’s ODYSSEYKhalil Gibran’s THE PROPHET, BEL CANTO by Ann PatchettIN ONE PERSON by John Irving (which comes out this month), and DAUGHTER OF SMOKE AND BONE by Laini Taylor.

Paige, Intern of Media Social and Otherwise: I’m forcing myself to savor Ron Rash’s THE COVE (of which I’ve fallen for), and I’ve started SAVING RUTH by Zoe Fishman (so far it’s absolutely delicious).
