Welcome to our 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!
We’re done trying to make this a blog hop, but still feel free to participate! Maybe someday we’ll try to make it happen as a blog hop again, but right now we feel like Gretchen trying to make ‘fetch’ happen.
This morning Kim
is wishes she was reading:
Eligible by Curtis Littenfeld
Kate here- So, because Kim is in full on back-to-school mode, there’s not a lot of free time for reading. Especially this first month back. So instead of posting the books she’s still currently reading, I’m delving into Kim’s TBR on Goodreads. I actually read Eligible recently because it’s our book club selection for this month. It’s a modern take on Pride & Prejudice, and we’re also meant to read Dear Mr. Knightley too… but I haven’t found the time yet, but I still have an entire week almost! Kim, if you do decide to read this one before book club, I promise it won’t take long. It’s a fairly fast read.
This morning Kate is reading:
Autonomous by Annalee Newitz
Normally I stick to the fantasy side of sci-fi, but in the past few years, I’ve been branching out. I no longer just read about magical lands that look a lot like Florida, or epic Medieval fantasies, or zombie novels. I read about robots, and space travel, and time travel.
And this weekend I’m reading about lady pirates who reverse engineer pharmaceuticals in order to play Robin Hood to the poor dying bastards that can’t afford big Pharma prices, drugs that kill you by getting you so addicted to work that you can’t stop until you die, military men sent to track down lady pirate, and the robot sidekicks that they fall in love with. Set in a not so distant future where robot slavery has led to human slavery once more, this book will make you think of how our current world could end up looking a lot like this world. BUT, it’s also funny, and surprisingly sexy.
So, I got the arc at BEA (which the Hubs promptly stole from me), and then we got a finished copy when we went to her signing this past week at Fountain Bookstore. But I also got an audiobook version, because I’m trying to read too many physical books at the moment and I love the narrator. So, if you like audio, then I highly recommend this one!
