What I’m Reading Now (7/22/19)


I actually got a lot of reading done last week! I’m hoping that trend continues through the rest of the summer. I’m interspersing library holds in with my Fall ARCs and this is pattern is working for me.


There WILL be a new podcast this week!

Episode 25, featuring Siobhan Jones (Editorial Director of Book of the Month) will air on Wednesday! And, she will be revealing one of the August Book of the Month picks early on the podcast!

Three Women by Lisa Taddeo (July 9, 2019)
I was entertained by these women’s stories, but am having trouble with the profoundness many people are seeing in them. Mini Review coming.

Beyond the Point by Claire Gibson (April 2, 2019)
Loved this one! It’s long, but reads super fast and I loved these three women and their friendship. Plus, the women at West Point and in the military premise makes it unique. Mini Review coming.

I’m currently reading…



Dominicana by Angie Cruz (September 3, 2019)
I’m about 25% through this debut novel about a fifteen year old girl from the Dominican Republic who marries a man twice her age who brings her to America. I’m liking it alright, but it’s not blowing me away. I need to feel closer to the characters. I’m hoping that happens soon.

Upcoming reading plans…

Unless a library hold comes in…

Other's Gold by Elizabeth Ames



The Other’s Gold by Elizabeth Ames (August 27, 2019)
The premise of this debut campus novel about four female friends is right up my alley…and the Goodreads reviews are outstanding!

  1. The next podcast sounds amazing! Can’t wait to hear what one of the selections will be. I’m finishing up My Oxford Year, which is a great summer read with a bit more depth than I expected.

  2. I’ve had Beyond the Point for a while and need to get to it. I’ve also got Three Women but I can’t decide if I want to read it.

    Excited for this week’s episode! I can see why you feel that way about Dominicana- it’s got a unique writing style from the few pages I did read.

  5. I’ve been wondering about Dominicana. I keep reading about it, but then back off on requesting it. Let me know what you think when you finish, please. I sort of feel the same way about The Other’s Gold, so I’ll let you vet that one, too!

    I have Beyond The Point on my list, but I have some many on my list that it hasn’t been near the top. It sounds like maybe I should consider bumping it up!
