What I'm Reading Now: October Edition

I had so much fun last month doing a quick review of my current books I may turn this into a monthly feature! So right now here's what I'm reading:

On my Nook: I'm actually not reading a book right now - I've been catching up on my Entertainment Weekly reading since I was about 10 weeks behind. This is one of the few magazines that I read. Since I'm not working in a book store anymore I like the way this gives me a recap of the current media and entertainment stuff going on.

On audio in my car: The Weird Sisters by Eleanor Brown. I've been wanting to read this since I saw it at the book store and I found it in audio at my local library. I am thoroughly enjoying it, though I find the plural 3rd person narration to be very odd at times. This contemporary novel is about three sisters, daughters of a Shakespeare professor and scholar, who all return home in various levels of personal failure to deal with their mother's breast cancer diagnosis and the complications threaded through their lives. The characters really shouldn't be likable, yet I find them compelling and interesting. I'm curious to see how it will all play out.

On my phone: Caught in the Middle by Regina Jennings. I grew up reading historical Christian fiction so there's a bit of nostalgia in this choice. I am annoyed with the cover as I don't feel like it actually fits the book to this point, but I am enjoying it overall. Anne escaped from her life by donning men's clothes and becoming a buffalo hunter after she shot her husband to save a neighbor. She's closed her heart and her life to anyone who might hurt her again. But when she finds herself in custody of a baby and an old friend's brother comes to her rescue, Anne finds her heart slowly opening to the possibility of love again.

In print: Venom by Fiona Paul. I suddenly realized that I needed to read this month's book club book before Sunday! So I dove in and I won't say more because, of course, we'll be doing a post about this eventually. But I will say that so far I'm finding it quite intriguing.

On TV: Gilmore Girls finally came to Netflix and after pretty much everyone I know raved about this series I had to dive in. Oh. My. Werd. This show is filled with awesomesauce. I love everything about it and I know I'll be doing a 10 Things post about it. But go. Watch it. Now. :)
