Time, once again, for my favorite question. What are you reading? And, to add some spice, what is stacked up on your To Be Read pile?
I just finished The Stranger You Know by Jane Casey and immediately downloaded her next book in the series. (I thought I had read them all, but it turns out there was one more to be read until I’m caught up.) However, to give myself a short break from London crime, I turned to a book I found at the Hartford Public Library. Written by E. J. Copperman and Jeff Cohen, it is The Question of the Unfamiliar Husband. I was drawn to it because the subtitle is An Asperger’s Mystery, which intrigued me. Turns out this is the second book in this series (have to get the first) and it’s delightful. Well written, well plotted and also very amusing, it’s written from the protagonist’s point of view and he is the one who has Asperger’s. I’m really enjoying it. It occurs to me, reading the book, that the protagonist reminds me very much of Sheldon on The Big Bang Theory – not understanding human interactions, very smart in a particular way – as portrayed by my former student Jim Parsons. (Have to give a rave to my friend’s brilliant portrayal of Sheldon.)
On my TBR pile (here in Hartford, there’s another one back at the cottage): The next four books in Susan Hill’s Simon Serailler series, The Fifth House of the Heart by Ben Tripp, and Then Again by Diane Keaton.
Okay, my friends, it’s your turn. Do tell!
