Welcome to my new blog hop/meme In Bed With a Book! Why limit ourselves to just Sundays anymore? Stop by anytime during the week to share what book is in your bed, and be sure to hop to other blog participant’s sites as well. I’ll post a new link each Sunday, but you can add your post any day of the week.
At this time I would like to feature a new book blogger every week, so if you’re interested, go ahead and email a picture of what book is in your bed this week to be featured next Sunday. Emails can be sent to midnightbookgirl (at) gmail (dot) com.
This morning I’m reading:
The Ground Beneath Her Feet by Salman Rushdie
I’m almost done!! I bought this book in 1999, when it first came out, because U2 had released a song that was based on the novel. But then I never got past the first chapter. I carted the book around for a long time, until finally it failed to make one of my moves, or it finally got tired of being unread and left on it’s own accord to find a reader more worthy of it. But then when I got my audible account this was one of the first books I searched for and bought. And then I STILL didn’t read it. I finally decided that 2014 would be the year that I would listen to this novel, and I’m glad I finally got to it. Even listening at 2 and 3x speed, this is a long audio, over 27 hours long, but I love the narration and the utter weirdness of this book. I guess I thought that it was going to be a much more serious kind of book, but it’s actually funny and manic and full of magical realism. And now I have less than an hour to go! So I will finish this today.
I’m also starting:
The Secrets of Lily Graves by Sarah Strohmeyer
A book about a girl who lives in a funeral house? Um, yes, please! A murder mystery in a small town? All over it. I’ve only read the first chapter, but I’m enjoying my first Strohmeyer book, and I really hope that the mystery is a good one!
What are you reading (or wish you had time to read) in bed this week? Are you reading the book you thought you’d be reading, or has today found you with a surprise? Link up below! I’m going to try running this more like a blog hop, so feel free to add the link in your meme posts!
