It's Monday! And A New Year. What Are You Reading?

Happy New Year!! I finished The Patriots, by Sana Krasikov, just before the clock struck midnight on the 31st, so it counts as my final read for 2016. And what a way to go out. I can't wait till this book comes out in February and everyone else can read it too.

What am I reading now?

I'm finally going to get to Beautiful Ruins, by Jess Walter. I actually had this in galley and let it go a long time ago but I decided to take the plunge over the holiday week and started reading it. It's really good so far.

I also finished The Most Dangerous Book (did I mention that already?) and I'm enjoying Mincemeat, Leonardo Lucarelli's chef-in-Italy memoir. It's kind of a lighter version of Anthony Bourdain. No big insights but fun.

Since it took me all week to finish The Patriots, I never got around to starting the other books I brought. Oh well! What are your first reads of 2017?

I'm spoilt for choice! I read a Rumer Godden Five for Sorrow Ten for Joy. Loved it.

Swing Time by Zadie Smith and The Bone Clocks by David Mitchell are two of my reads for this week. I listened to Beautiful Ruins on audio a while back and loved it, although felt bad for some of the characters!
