Welcome BACK to my Sundays In Bed With… Meme! The meme that dares to ask what book has been in your bed this morning? Come share what book you’ve spent time curled up reading in bed, or which book you wish you had time to read today!
I know, I know, I switched to In Bed With a Book meme, but I’m switching back. I’m done trying to make this a blog hop, but still feel free to participate! Maybe someday I’ll try to make it happen as a blog hop again, but right now I feel like Gretchen trying to make ‘fetch’ happen.
This morning I’m reading:
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix by J.K. Rowling
On my plate in the picture above is a Butterbeer donut from Sugar Shack! We had book club last night, and since we’re all Potterheads and we were celebrating several birthdays (Sandy’s, Lillie’s and Julie’s), I special order these donuts for our discussion of The Martian.
But I’m picking for August, and I did something rather rare- I picked 2 books. I picked Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix because Sandy HAS NOT FINISHED THE SERIES YET and it’s pretty much killing the rest of us. So I picked it so that she would be forced to make time for it.
The other book I picked is one called The Girl With All the Gifts by M.R. Carey, which I’ve wanted to read for awhile now and it’s a little on the horror genre side, which isn’t something we read a lot of (although I think it’s meant to be more thriller than gorefest). But we do have a few members of book club who can’t read scary things, so now they have a legit reason for skipping one of the books because we don’t make reading the books all that mandatory. We’ve become more of a bookwormish social club.
To be honest, I’ll probably spend the day listening to Armada by Ernest Cline, because I finally finished the other audio I was listening to, and I’m eager to dive back into Cline’s 80’s loving novels.
What are you reading (or wish you had time to read) this morning? Are you reading the book you thought you’d be reading, or has today found you with a surprise?
