We promise Bookmates will be revived!

Life has just been pretty crazy lately and we (mainly me!) have neglected Bookmates. But I promise to post again soon. In the meantime, here is a quick mini-post.

I've gotten back into my eclectic reading schedule lately. Here's a sample of my latest reads:

The Passage by Justin Cronin
This book is long. Really, really long. I'm on page 640ish right now and I think I have about 150 pages left. Anyhow, worth the read but I think it may have needed a harsher editor. Also: freaky viral vampires.

The Imperfectionists by Tom Rachman
I think every one's reading this book right now, and there's a reason why: it's excellent. It's rare that interconnecting stories entertain me, but I was glued to this book throughout the night. Highly recommended.

Yes, this is not a book. But! I love BUST. It's my feel-good magazine. It's like etsy combined with Jezebel combined with Highlights for adults. Yay!



  1. My book club has decided to read The Passage by Cronin in August. We just finished Snow Falling on Cedar and will discuss a young adult book about a teenaged Sherlock Holmes, Eye of the Crow, in July.

  2. Highlights for Adults. Awesome. I am glad to see you did not _shelve_ the blog. I heart Bookmates!

  3. Yay, Bookmates! Glad to see you're back!

    Maybe it's because I have no joy in my soul, but I didn't like "The Imperfectionists" very much. I'm contrary and difficult, what can I say.

    But Brad Pitt bought the movie rights, so that'll be, uh, fun?

  4. Agh, Brad Pitt? You are contrary and difficult in a great way, Evan. :)
