holy crap girl, you better get off that computer and start reading

I have a to read list a mile long it seems. I'm finding new reading material faster than I can get through what I already have. Life is currently motoring by at a neck breaking pace and I scarcely have time to read more than Goodnight Moon and If You Give a Moose a Muffin each day.

Over our past weeks of illness I did manage to dig up and finish Keeping Faith by Jodi Picoult. It was good. Very good. It was slow to start but picked up pace in the middle with compelling lead characters with an interesting dynamic. More than any of that though it did pose some very thought provoking questions about the struggle of being a parent. Without ruining the plot I can't say much but it is a good read. And one of the only Picoult books that didn't disappoint me on the last page.

Here's whats on my immediate to read list:

A Great and Terrible Beauty, Libba Bray
The Time Traveler's Wife, Audrey Niffenegger
Wicked, Gregory Maguire
The Friday Night Knitting Club, Kate Jacobs
The Chronicles of Narnia, C.S. Lewis (I never did read these as a kid)

What's on yours?
