WHAT WE'RE READING THIS WEEK (31st October) AND WHAT WE THINK OF IT SO FAR

Post the title, author, and cover of your current read, your thoughts so far, and, if you're feeling brave, a mark out of 10. Relist, tag your ListApp reader friends, and we'll do it again next week!
  1. Eleanor and Park, by Rainbow Rowell
    I'm not far in, but I really like it so far. I'm super worried about Eleanor living with that messed up family of hers though and I kind of wish the prologue hadn't spoiled that the story ends with her leaving. 8+/10
  2. A Tale For The Time Being
    2/3 of the way through. Didn't think too much of it when I bought it but somehow it manages to interweave Zen Buddhism, quantum physics, animal spirits, mental illness and suicide, and moral choices during wartime. Very complex and multilayered. I maybe getting ahead of myself but 9/10

  3. A Torch Against the Night by Sabaa Tahir
    Just started it! I really liked An Ember in the Ashes so I was excited to pick this one up.

  4. Bossypants by Tina Fey
    I know I'm super late to the party with this one — I'm loving it and kicking myself for not having read it sooner. What's there to say except that Tina is amazing?

  5. Eligible - Curtis Sittenfeld
    1) Was in desperate need of light fiction this week, this fit the bill; 2) I am really not into Austen re-tellings (give me the original any day), but a friend highly recommended; 3) I find myself loving the ways this Pride & Prejudice update is modernized to be about sisters in their late 30s; 4) It's a fun page-turner, but original has my heart

  6. The Woman in Cabin 10 - Ruth Ware
    I will be starting this on my bus ride home from work today, and I am VERY excited.

  7. The Crime of the Century: Richard Speck and the Murders that Shocked a Nation
    Okay, so now you know about my latent serial killer fetish. In my defense, I had just plowed through The Nix and Commonwealth back-to-back and wanted something crazy mindless. This was on Book Bub for $1.99. I'm 1/3 of the way into it and it's fine. It's no Helter Skelter, but has a similar narrative vibe. I'll probably finish it but I'm already itching for fiction again.
