Books On My Radar


Recently I tweeted about this problem I have and many of you seem to relate: I can't stop buying books, but I have no time to read them.  It's really disappointing actually that I feel like I don't have much time during my day to simply sit down and read a book.  I have time to watch TV shows because I am also usually doing a multitude of other things on my phone or computer, which has allowed me to almost master the art of multi-tasking. But that's what is so magical about dedicating all of your attention to a book. You allow yourself to get completely lost in what you're reading.

Like I said, I have been purchasing a lot of books as of late that I have yet to crack open. Later this week I will be making the trip up to Martha's Vineyard for a few days and I am so excited to take that time to get through a few of these books!

Anyone want to read along with me?

I AM PILGRIM by Terry Hayes | "A former intelligence agent who wrote a book on forensic pathology becomes involved in a case where someone uses his book to commit untraceable murders.  Because of his ealier career, he also gets involve din another case involving a threat to the population of the U.S.." - Wikipedia

THE UNDERGROUND RAILROAD by Colson Whitehead | "Cora is a slave on a cotton plantation in Georgia.  Life is hellish for all the slaves but especially bad for Cora; an outcast even among her fellow Africans, she is coming into womanhood - where even greater pain awaits.  When Caesar, a recent arrival from Virginia, tells her about the underground Railroad, they decide to take a terrifying risk and escape.  Matters do not go as planned and, though they manage to find a station and head north, they are being hunted." - Goodreads 

SEASON OF STORMS by Susanna Kearsley | "In 1921, infamous Italian poet Galeazzo D'Ascanio wrote his last and greatest play inspired by his muse and mistress, actress Celia Sands.  On the eve of opening night, Celia vanished, and the play was never performed.  Now, two generations later, Alessandro D'Ascanio plans to stage his grandfather's masterpiece and has offered the lead to a promising young English actress, also named Celia Sands-at the whim of her actress mother, or so she always thought." - Amazon
