What I'm Reading Now

I'm doing that bad thing where I've started multiple books at the same time. There's just so much out there I want to read, though! Here's my current list.

Don't Try This at Home, edited by Kim Witherspoon
This is an amazing and eye-opening compendium of disaster stories from the kitchens of some of today's top chefs, from Ferran Adria to Jamie Oliver to Anthony Bourdain. Every chef has a night where things go wrong, and in this book, the chefs relive those experiences and what they learned from them in first person accounts that are by turns lyrical, poignant, hilarious, and shocking. This is my favorite kind of research!

A Duke of Her Own by Eloisa James
The stirring conclusion of the Desperate Duchesses series! Finally, Villiers gets his happily ever after. It's been a long time since a hero engaged me on as many levels as Leopold, Duke of Villiers. He's utterly charming, vain as a peacock, loyal to a fault, and scrupulous about covering his good heart with a veneer of debauchery and frivolity. I adore him.

In The Eye of the Storm by Gene Robinson
Gene Robinson is the gay bishop of New Hampshire whose confirmation sparked a controversy in the Episcopal Church, and beyond. His books is an examination of not only the church's policy on LGBT issues, but of Christian theology in a larger sense. His writing is passionate and straightforward, and the strength of his faith breathes through every word. Very inspiring story.

Hot Pursuit by Suzanne Brockmann
I can't get enough of the Troubleshooters. And especially Sam/Alyssa and Jules/Robin! So it's beyond fabulous to have all of them back for another round of excitement and adventure. And, of course, the kind of passionate, gutwrenching romance Brockmann excels at.

What's on your bedside table?


I loved a Duke of her Own-I loved it so much I wanted to drown myself for being such a crap writer by comparison-but luckily I got over myself LOL

Right now I'm finishing up Netherland, a look at life as an expat in post-September 11th NYC, and starting A Year In The Merde, a fictional account of a Brit working in Paris. Next up is a re-read of The Handmaid's Tale (for my book club) and my Napa-Sonoma guidebook! ;-)

I'm multiple booking it too on my nightstand!

So here's the list:

Angie Fox's The Accidental Demon Slayer

Jennifer Crusie, Anne Stuart and Lani Diane Rich's Dogs and Goddesses

Nora Roberts' Vision in White

Eloisa James' Duchess By Night

Perez Hilton's Red Carpet Suicide

Sexy, Sassy, Smart Reading Wishes --- D. D. Scott

I don't want to say because the book is pretty crappy.

Next up, Leslie Parish's Fade To Black.

I'm reading Kandy Sheperd's "Love is a Four-Legged Word." Very cute! Next up is "The Time Traveler's Wife" (only because my book club is reading it and I have to catch up, plus it's been on my TBR pile forever). After that, however, it's Eloisa for me!! Can't wait to finish the duchess series:)

Some great reads going on here!

Kate: You have nothing to reproach yourself with. Your books are lovely! And about five times hotter than Eloisa's. ;)

Meg: I want a book report on the Napa guidebook!

D.D.: You're going to love Duchess by Night! It might be my fave of the whole series.

Kristen: I've been hearing awesome things about Leslie Parrish.

Maria: If you've never read the Time Traveler's Wife, you have a treat in store! I bet you love it.
