What I Happen to Be Reading At the Moment

"A thirteen-year-old is a kaleidoscope of different personalities, if not in most ways a mere figment of her own imagination. At that age, what and who you are depends largely on what book you happen to be reading at the moment.”

 

While not 13 anymore, the desire to read almost anything and everything in order to read for fun and for experience is still around. I'm currently working on my PhD in a physical science, but I love to read and books are one of my non-science hobbies.

Letters to the Lost

Letters to the Lost - Iona Grey Even though it was a Letter Writers Alliance book club pick, I gave up on this one, for a major, spoilery reason:

The possibly closeted gay man rapes his wife for suggesting maybe he's not happy with women. Really, it's not a great time in Britain for anyone who is/was gay, but that's a little far for an otherwise fluffy book about some lady who ends up reading decades old love letters after breaking into a house. Done, there are too many other books on my to read list to waste my time finishing this one
