What I'm Reading Lately--January 13th

I have always been a big reader and I have my parents to thank for that. I read mostly non-fiction books and I like to pick up a fiction book occasionally. 

I had seen Sarah Jio's latest book, Blackberry Winter, mentioned on blogs and Goodreads, so I was ecstatic when I found it in the new books section at the library. I loved her book The Violets of March and enjoy her style of writing.

I read this the entire bus ride to work on Friday and when I stepped off the bus, I really felt like I was leaving another world that Sarah had transported me to. Now that's when I can tell I am really into a story! I finished Blackberry Winter yesterday and jumped right into another book on my Kindle.


I really love checking out books via the digital library system and downloading them to my Kindle for the maximum of 21 days. I started reading this selection last night, after hearing about it in various publications.

After I am done with that selection, it's onto this one.

What are you currently reading? Do you prefer non-fiction or fiction? 


  1. Non-fiction! I'm reading The Trader Joe's Adventure right now. When I do read fiction, I prefer light-hearted chick lit such as Emily Giffin. Similar to my taste in movies, I love documentaries and chick flicks :)

  2. I am obsessed with Zombie/End of the World Apocalyptic Books...Cannot get enough of them, good or bad I've been reading them.

  3. I prefer a mix. I'm currently reading J.K. Rowling's Casual Vacancy and am really enjoying it. I think she's a master at character development.

  4. I love Emily Giffin too :) I really want to read "The End of Your Life Book Club."

  5. Our book club is doing Calling Invisible Women for February. I am working on switching my blog to a paid site now and it's cutting in to my reading time for a bit.
