It's that time of the week again! I want to know what you're reading :)
Last week I put Lilac Girls on my list, but unfortunately my digital loan expired so I'm back on the waiting list before I can finish it!! Ugh!!I hate when that happens. So, I have a new list this week!!

#1 The Everything Box by Richard Kadrey

This is another book that sat on my waiting list from my library for a long time, so I hope I end up liking it! I'm going to start it as soon as I finish #2 on this list :P
This urban fantasy story is supposed to be really funny - it's basically about a doomsday device (the box) that an angel who is supposed to destroy humanity loses somewhere on Earth - thus beings the story as EVERYONE is suddenly out to get it! I'm excited to start this one & see if it lives up to the reviews~

#2 Eligible by Curtis Sittenfeld

I'm still working on this one, but almost finished! I'll do a proper write up about how I feel about it once I finish, but so far it's been interesting. I was hoping to finish it by this weekend, but I didn't end up having the time!
As I mentioned last week, this one is a retelling of Pride and Prejudice in a modern setting. It's actually set in Ohio!! Which is so funny to me for some reason. I really wanna give more details but I think that's more suited to an actual review so look forward to that!

#3 Miller's Valley by Anna Quindlen

I might not get to this one this week, but I have it till the end of the month so I'm sure I'll get to it before then.
This story was described (via Amazon) as:
"Miller’s Valley is a masterly study of family, memory, loss, and, ultimately, discovery, of finding true identity and a new vision of home. As Mimi says, 'No one ever leaves the town where they grew up, even if they go.' Miller’s Valley reminds us that the place where you grew up can disappear, and the people in it too, but all will live on in your heart forever."
I've been thinking a lot about home & what it means lately, so I thought this might be a good book for me to pick up and see if it can't help me untangle some thoughts :)

So, what are you reading this week?!

@AdityaImmaneni That's hard :( I try to read before bed even when I'm tired just to make it a habit :)

@EasternShell Miss Pettigrew's Home! I want to re-read that so badly. Is it still enjoyable now?

@timeturnerjones Yes. Miss Pettigrew's Home was worth the investment. I waited a long time before I bought it.

I have Eligible and Miller's Valley on hold at the library, but it's taking forever! I just picked up an older series, WWII alternative history set in England, by Jo Walton. The books are Farthing, Ha'Penny and Half a Crown. I'm finishing up Furiously Happy by Jenny Lawson. Parts of it have me snorting out loud, which says a lot for a book about the author's mental illnesses!
