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 reading:
#Starstruck by Sariah Wilson
Kate here: Kim’s done the last several weeks of these, so I thought I’d wake up at a decent hour and try to give her a break. So Kim is still listening to Artemis, but she’s physically reading this romance. I actually like the hashtag style title, although the skinny tie just makes me think of Chris Hardwick (the host of The Talking Dead). This is about a normal woman falling in love with a hunky actor, and that’s the plot of several of my favorite Hallmark movies (although sometimes they switch it up and have the woman be the famous actress and the man is a cowboy or owns some small business and either has a super cute dog, super quirky family, or an adorable daughter/son who the actor/actress forms a close bond with). Here’s hoping this one is quirky, cute, with a little (or a lot) of sexiness! Let us know, Kim!

Fingersmith by Sarah Waters
So, I’ve read this book before- my personal book club read it years ago, in 2011. We all loved it, and it’s a book we still reference when we talk about plot twists. And I’d been wanting to reread it for my bookstore book club, but it’s a little longer than most of the books we read, so we held off until this month (since we didn’t read a book in December). I probably waited a bit long to start my re-read, but I have both the physical book and the audiobook, so I have no fears of finishing it by Wednesday night. Seriously, this book has the best plot twist ever, and Waters pulls it off masterfully. I read a lot of thrillers, and twists are bountiful, but few authors are able to deliver both the shock and surprise and have the pieces fall so seamlessly into place that you are just in awe of the author. Sometimes the twists in other thrillers just leave me rolling my eyes.
So what book are you spending the weekend with?
