Literary Junkies: Night Circus

With all the Christmas craziness, I didn't manage to pull my act together enough to post in the link up with all the other ladies in the Literary Junkies group. So here's my post, a tad bit late.

Goings on in Texas

1. What are you currently reading? Tell us about it.
I just finished Night Circus, which was our first selection with Literary Junkies. I loved it!! Very rarely am I immediately involved and engrossed in a story line. This book grabbed me from about page 3 and held my attention the whole way though!
I haven't started another book yet, but I'm probably going to jump into JK Rowlings Casual Vacancy (our January book selection).

 Currently Reading

2. If you could choose any author in the world to write a story based on your life, who would you choose to be the author? Why?
Stephanie Meyer. She gets a lot of flack because she isn't the most amazing author in the world. I pick her because she knows how to tell a good story. She may not use the best literary tools, but she can express an idea with great effectiveness.
(you should check out her non-Twilight book The Host if you hold Twilight against her ;)

3. Tell us about your favorite place to read.
 The couch. We have a little corner of the couch that butts up to the other couch creating a 'nook' of sorts (we seriously need to get a sectional). It's the perfect space for reading, a place for both elbows and back support!

4. What books would you buy for lovers of
a) suspense/mystery, b) chicklit, c) comedy, d) literary fiction, e)nonfiction, f) classics?
 Oh goodness, well I'm not great at picking out my own books, much less books for someone else...
a. suspense/mystery - The Night Circus, it's officially one of my favorite books!
b. chicklit - Anything by Jennifer Weiner. I particularly like Good in Bed
c. comedy - hmm... I'm not sure. I know I've read books that make me laugh, but I can't think of any off the top of my head.
d...e... no clue!
f. classics - My favorite book of all time The Great Gatsby!! 

Come join us with Literary Junkies!! You would be jumping in at a perfect time with plenty of time to get our next book read before our discussion (twitter party)!



  1. I agree with you about Stephaie Meyer. I like the way she tells a story and she gave us Edward Cullen! :)

  2. I loved Good in Bed and the Great Gatsby (I think I've read it 5 times! ha!) Thanks so much for linking up with us!! :)
