The Voices of Nîmes, by Suzannah Lipscomb: it's very good, but it's due back at the library today and I can't renew it or speed-read it.
The Disaster on Mount Slesse, by Betty O'Keefe: the story is interesting (a plane crash!), but the telling is rather flat.
I'm about halfway through Atwood's Blind Assassin but haven't been able to stay with it regularly and you know what happens - I'm losing track of the story. And it seems to be a tricky book to follow at the best of times.
I'm still reading Medicine Walk by Richard Wagamese. As I said in #11, two versions arrived at the same time so my husband is enjoying the print edition while I am reading the ebook. It's fun to have a reading companion nearby.
I'm currently reading a hodge podge of books, The Tiger's Wife by Téa Obreht (I may be the last person to read this one); Hollow Kingdom by Kira Jane Buxton, which is hilarious and brilliant - it's the zombie apocalypse as narrated by a domesticated crow who swears a lot; Olive Again by Elizabeth Strout, which is every bit as good as Olive Kitteridge; and On Earth We're Briefly Gorgeous by Ocean Vuong, which has some of the most vivid and beautiful writing I've read.
I'm currently reading The Day I Ate Whatever I Wanted: And Other Small Acts of Liberation, a collection of short stories by Elizabeth Berg.
