3.22.14 – Whatcha’ Reading & Watching?


So, what is everyone reading and watching this weekend?  I just finished up The Iron Duke, a steampunk romp which is currently on sale for $1.99 (thanks Smart Bitches, Trashy Books) and have started on Japanese Farm Food but am jones-ing for a all-absorbing read. In terms of TV, we’ve finished up The Americans and started in on the latest season of Scandal (both so good!).  Also, I discovered at the library on Friday that Henning Mankell, on of my favorite authors, has done a young adult series! So that is also on my list.

    I’m in the middle of the Dreseden Files series by Jim Butcher. Picture a cross between Harry Potter and Sam Spade, set in modern-day Chicago. Highly entertaining! Each book is a fairly short read and mostly self-contained, but there are quite a few: the 15th installment comes out in May.

    I just finished up Edith Wharton’s “Summer” and it was so good. It’s pretty short and engrossing. Loving “Scandal” and got a bit weepy watching this past Thursday’s episode. Olivia Pope is my professional muse…but without the murder and mayhem.

    I’d recommend Capital by John Lanchester – it came out a few years ago but it’s very absorbing! And Sweet Tooth, the new Ian McEwan, is a quick read, not super heavy, but fun.

    Have you read Stoner by John Williams? It was published in the 60s without receiving much attention but was ‘rediscovered’ and became a bestseller here in the UK last year. It’s so beautifully written and moving.

    We have been tearing through The West Wing series on Netflix, which I watched sporadically years ago but hadn’t seen every episode. Oh my goodness, I had forgotten how good it is! So, so good! We are also eagerly anticipating The Newsroom, Season 2 on Netflix – another Aaron Sorkin series I’d highly recommend.
