What are you reading these days?

The chilly weather makes me want to curl up on the couch with a good book and a nice cup of hot tea. I always end up enjoying the books that have been recommended to me by friends more than the random ones I have picked up at Barnes and Noble. I would love to know what books you are currently reading or have recently read. Your recommendations would be greatly appreciated!

  1. for some reason a book intrigues me the minute i find out they are going to make it into a movie. after finishing the twilight series in a week, i picked up revolutionary road – the one that will star kate winslet and leo. so far so good. i also have the time traveler’s wife on my shelf. that one is going to have eric bana and rachel mcadams.

  2. I’m reading an old classic that I really love, “A Tree Grows in Brooklyn.” I just finished “The Testimony,” by Anita Shreve, which was an easy read and I definitely enjoyed it.

  3. Ok… I have to admit my guilty pleasure- just finished with the Twilight books. 😉 And design-wise I’m really enjoying Celerie Kemble’s new book, To Your Taste.

  4. I’m going to have to ask my sister for her Twilight books!

    My Decor Style- I love David Sedaris!

    Paige- Revolutionary Road sounds great. Feeling stifled in the suburbs? I can certainly relate.

    Claire- I have heard wonderful things about Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil. Maybe it’s high time I read it!

  5. The best book I have read in awhile was “Snow Flower and the Secret Fan”, by Lisa See. It make one glad she was born in the U.S.A.

  6. I am about to finish Infidel by Ayaan Hirsi Ali. It is an amazing and unbelievable true story… It is eye opening on so many levels and very readable too. I absolutely recommend it!

  7. My all time favorite book is The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand because I love architecture!

    And I heard that the author of Revolutionary Road is a writer’s writer. His book was a hit among the writing community; however, sadly never took flight in a commercial sense (although perhaps all of that is about to change!). Revolutionary Road is my next pick!

  8. The last book I read was Snowflower and the Secret Fan – and I agree with the person who commented about it above. It’s a GREAT read.

    Currently, I’m reading Eat Pray Love. I’m almost finished with the Italy section, and am enjoying it. Not totally in love with the book, yet. However, it’s taking me a while to plunge through it.

  9. Adriene, I just finished reading Eat Pray Love. It took me a while to really get into it because she seems to whine so much in the Italy section. I promise it gets better! I enjoyed the India and Indonesia chapters so, so much. I was inspired to do a lot of introspection because of those chapters. It is one of my favorite books. Stick with it!

  10. Just started Mao’s Last Dancer. I love it so far — makes you appreciate what you have. I’m going to curl up on the couch with my book and cup of tea tonight.
