Sometimes things can get a bit wild here at FridayReads. The pants come off (and sometimes stay off all weekend), our hair comes down, and we let loose with multiple books at a time. Our FridayReads usually don’t fit in just one Tweet so we’ve compiled a list here for your reading pleasure. Still not satisfied? Clickity-click on the titles for more bookish amazing-ness.
Bethanne: Leader of our Ravenous Pack- GONE GIRL by Gillian Flynn, PARK LANE by Frances Osborne, and THE STONECUTTER by Camilla Läckberg.
Rebecca: Master Giveaway-er and Multitasking Extraordinaire- I’m reading SHINE SHINE SHINE by Lydia Netzer, which is every bit as awesome as Bethanne and Amanda said it would be, THE STEAL: A CULTURAL HISTORY OF SHOPLIFTING by Rachel Shteir (totally fascinating), and THE BLIND GIANT by Nick Harkaway, about being human in the digital age.
Amanda: Seller of Promotional This, Thats, and The Other Things- I’ve reading EVERYTHING BEAUTIFUL BEGAN AFTER by Simon Van Booy, Homer’s ODYSSEY, and TELEGRAPH AVENUE by Michael Chabon (Sept 2012).
Veronica: The Interweb Do-dad Specilist- I’m reading WILD by Cheryl Strayed and will start INSURGENT by Veronica Roth.
Paige: Our Social and Other Awesome Things Intern: I’m hopelessly devoted to the brilliant, honest, and hilarious HOW SHOULD A PERSON BE by Sheila Heti. I’m also re-reading SAVING RUTH by Zoe Fishman - I’ve only just finished it, but I had to go back inside the story immediately. It’s that good.
Brittney: Our Socially Awkward Minion- I have (regrettably) not been able to read much this week but am almost through DEADLOCKED by Charlaine Harris. I also got this awesome collection of stories (thanks, Amanda!) called THE NEW WEIRD that I have been dipping into and am still working on 1Q84
