I downloaded "Origins" the first in the Spinward Fringe Series. Sci-fi. Decent.

Just killing time waiting on the next Wheel of Time.

Just finished Call the Midwife which I enjoyed.

Just started The One Hundred Year Old Man that Climbed Out of a Window and Disappeared

I was on a Margaret Atwood kick in my 20's and read all up until that point.
My favourite (and one that I would like to read again) is The Robber Bride.

A similar writer I loved then was Marge Piercy. "Gone to Soldiers" is an excellent read that I highly recommend.

Over Thanksgiving I read "The Kitchen House". It was enjoyable and I read it mostly on a long car ride. I wouldn't say it was my favourite book ever, but it did hold my interest and was well written.

I'm not currently reading anything, but making lists of things I would like to start (and hopefully finish!) over the Christmas break

Meta, why am I not surprised you loved "Robber Bride." Me too.

I recently read "The Kitchen House" and felt like you did.

Do you ever listen to audio books when you're in the car?

NEH the title of the second book you mentioned sounds fascinating. Am going to look it up right now.

Just finished "When it Happens To You" by Molly Ringwald. Yes, Molly Ringwald of 16 candles fame. It is a book about all different kinds of betrayal. I enjoyed it - who knew she could write?

I just started "Spending Christmas with People You Want to Punch in Throat."

So far I am loving it and it is likely to end up on "my favourite books" list

Loved "The Robber Bride".

Has anyone read "The Marriage Plot"? Jeffrey Eugenides is one of my favorite authors. I think I might try that next.

Still plugging away at "The Opposite of Me". Ugh.

Hope, I read and liked "The Marriage Plot," but it got mixed reviews from my friends who read it.

"The Chemistry of Tears" by Peter Carey, who has won the Booker Awards twice. I heard him on NPR, looked up automatons and had to read the book. (Warning: Affair in it, at the start, for those who trigger.)

I just finished "Wild" by Cheryl Strayed for my book club.

It made me cry, it was very touching and emotional at times. Liked it a lot.

Heavysigh, just started "The Chemistry of Tears." I'm liking it. Not feeling it is too triggery so far, since the OW seems to be struggling. That's kind of nice to read about for a change. Infidelity usually is shown as soooo romantic. lol Have you finished it?

No, Skye. I left the book at a relative's house in another state. I told her not to mail it, since I will be visiting again for Christmas and will finish it then. I'm halfway through it, and it didn't upset me, either.

After a rough start, I enjoyed "The Marriage Plot". It wasn't my favorite Eugenides, but I liked the ending.

I'm now diving into "The One Hundred Year Old Man that Climbed Out of a Window and Disappeared" based on NEH's rave review.

"Taking care of me" by mk mueller. I have had the opportunity to meet her as she goes to a local meetup group near me and she is a really great person. The book reflects her time and what she learned after being in a women's shelter. It is interactive with exercises built in to the book. Hope to finish in a week or two.

Just finisheded "where'd you go Bernadette" by Marie Semple. Great fun read with a brush with infidelity but no triggers I promise. Also loved Catherine the Great. Wow. Truly there are no new problems in the world -- infidelity, jealousy, self enlightenment, self destruction -- daily fare in the 1700's. and the global awakening of modern sensibilities of freedom and independence. Really eye opening. Happy New Year! Also favorite reads of the past year. Visit from the Good Squad. And Jonathan Trotter's HILARIOUS "this is where I leave you"

I just finished "Gone Girl", by Gillian Flynn, and found it quite addicting. Like so many books, movies, TV shows, there is an affair in it, though it is not glamorized.

I also read "Canada" by Richard Ford and Alice Munro's newest collection "Dear Life".

I'm rooting around for a new book!

I got all of the "Odd" books by Dean Koontz for Christmas. I finished the first book, and I am just about done with the second.

So far, I really like them. I hope the rest of the series is as good.

I also got "The Stand" by Stephen King...I'm looking forward to re-reading it.
