Miscellanea

It’s Monday, January 18th. What Are You Reading?

Monday Jan 18thLove is in the air, or at least in the titles. This week I am reading Only Love Can Break Your Heart // Ed Tarkington and The Love That Split the World // Emily Henry.

I recently finished The Revenant and The 5th Wave and needed to read something different. These two hit the mark. I’m about 60 pages in to each and I have no complaints. I’m traveling to Chicago this week and I’m hoping to get quite a bit of reading done on the plane and in the hotel. I’m also anticipating being cold. The high tomorrow is 17. Brrr.

I don’t know that I have any Chicago readers out there, but just in case, any suggestions? I’ll be in the Northbrook area.

    I’ll be very anxious to hear your thoughts re the Tarkington. I adored the first half and enjoyed the second, but it didn’t carry the emotion all the way home for me. It was really well written, I enjoyed the language all the way through.

    Hi Rory! I live in Lake Bluff, about 25 minutes from Northbrook. I work at an independent bookstore, Lake Forest Bookstore. There’s a nice indie in Northbrook, the Book Bin. Frankly, there’s not much going on in Northbrook. There’s a fancy shopping mall with a movie theater. And it’s cold here now — bring your warmest clothes!

      I’m there primarily to see the Chicago Botanic Gardens, so I’ll be at a hotel right beside there. I’ll look for The Book Bin though!

        Actually, if you’re staying close to the Botanic Garden, you’ll be near the Book Stall in Winnetka — a really lovely store. Enjoy the Botanic Garden — it’s one of my favorite places on the North Shore.

    I have Only Love Can Break Your Heart in my reading stack as well. Looking forward to it. Oddly, when I receive the ARC, I couldn’t find much about it or the author at all… even Goodreads didn’t have the goss – kind of nice starting a book knowing nothing.

    Yay – I’m so glad you’re reading Only Love Can Break Your Heart! I hope it works for you…I really loved it. Except for one little thing which I’ll cover in my review.

    How was the fifth wave? Should I read it?

    • http://www.fourthstreetreview.com/ Rory O’Connor

      I would say no. It’s okay, but quite long for something that is mediocre (in my opinion).

      • http://www.marelden.com mariahelena

        OK. I’ll move it to the bottom of the list.

    How long are you in Northbrook? I love the Botanical Gardens and grew up right around there. Do you still have my cell number? :))

    The Love that Split the World is getting a lot of buzz around it, and I was so tempted to request an ARC but remembered my growing TBR. Tarkington is definitely on my list to read. Such great choices for reading this week!
