I Read. You Read. Everybody Reads: Books I’ve Read This Semester

I love my position as an adjunct English instructor, but it’s cut into my writing and reading time. That makes the books I've managed to squeeze into my free moments all the more precious.

Because it’s days before finals, and I’m swamped in student projects and research papers, I’m only going to list the books and their illustrious authors. Here are thirteen in no particular order.

  1. Boneshaker -- Cherie Priest
  2. The Hit -- David Baldacci
  3. Wired for Story -- Lisa Cron
  4. The Lazarus Curse -- Tessa  Harris
  5. David and Goliath -- Malcolm Gladwell
  6. Edit Your Book in a Month -- Eliza Knight
  7. A Duchess in the Dark -- Kate McKinley
  8. A Drink Before Rain -- Dennis Lehane
  9. Practical Emotion Structure -- Jodi Henley
  10. The Fifth Witness -- Michael Connelly
  11.  The Harbinger --Jonathan Cahn
  12. Hollow City --Ransom Riggs
  13.  Allegiant -- Veronica Roth

What have you read? Since summer’s coming and I’m always searching for a new novel, what do you recommend?


  1. I'm still reading Walden and storybooks to my grandsons.

  2. Colleen,
    I bet your grandsons love that.

  3. So Jodi published it. I'll have to get a copy.

  4. I love Baldacci. I recommend Sue Monk Kidd's last book, Invention of Wings, and I'm reading The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry and am enjoying that. Also liked Nora Roberts' Whiskey Beach.

  5. I'll have to grab a copy of Jodi's book too. I enjoyed Boneshaker and also Veronica Roth's series. I need to grab Kate's book too since I've been reading quite a few historical romances this year.

    1. Good idea. I think you'll like Duchess in the Dark.

  6. While I haven't read any of the books on your list, a couple authors are in Mount TBR. I just finished the weighty One Hundred Years of Solitude for a GR group read, now it's time to delve into something a little "lighter." My Wildflower T13

  7. Grin. I have a Mount TBR, too.
