What are you reading?

Recently I discovered this great book site called Goodreads, where you can keep track of all the books you've read, or intend to read.  You can also read and write reviews on books, recommend books and join book clubs.  They have a little widgety thing that you can add to your blog...mine is on the sidebar.  I thought this was so cool, especially if you're into reading, or if you just want to get back into reading. 

Goodreads also lists non-fiction books, so I was able to find some of the crochet books that I've been fortunate enough to purchase over the past few years.  In the future, I plan to post reviews of those books on my blog and on my Goodreads, look for that over the summer.

In the meantime, I am reading Secret Daughter, by Shilpi Somaya Gowda.  This book has been everywhere recently...the author is Canadian, and the story is set in both India and the U.S.  Without getting too much into the story, a young Indian woman gives birth to a female and is forced to give up her daughter into a orphanage.  The story follows the little girl as she grows up and the mother who gave her up.  So far, Secret Daughter has been an enjoyable read.

I'd love to hear what others are reading these days.  Especially with the summer approaching, I'm always looking for new books to read, even though my to read list is quite long.  Well, bye for now...we're off for more Easter celebrating this weekend.

  1. Hi! I came over to your blog from your flickr photos. I love the crochet you have going on. On another note, I recently read this book. It was an eye-opener for me as to how people live and survive the slums. I'm on goodreads too and on the look out for good summer reading. The last book I read was The Distant Hours by Kate Morton and I'd like to read Madam Tussauds by Michelle Moran. Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
