What Do You Like to Read?

I’ve been in a reading slump lately. This has happened periodically throughout my life and is usually broken by a long browse in a good bookstore. For various reasons, I haven’t had a chance to stop by our wonderful local bookstore in town for more than a minute or two to pick up something specific (like this book about Beatrix Farrand!) But I’ll admit to not knowing what to read next.

I’m a fairly broad reader. I love mysteries and literary fiction, books about families, books about houses. I read a fair amount of academic research still (a holdover from my days working at a research institution in Washington with a Beatrix Farrand-designed garden), and historical non-fiction. But when I’m in a reading slump, having varied tastes becomes a hindrance because I just can’t decide what to read next! I’d love to hear what you’re reading, and what you like to read. Please share!

  1. I highly recommend The Elephant Whisperer by Anthony Lawrence.
    I finished it recently and it was one of those books that I missed as soon as I was done, but while reading could not put down!

    1. Thank you for the recommendations, Lauren! I do enjoy Elin Hilderbrand, but haven’t read The Ballerinas or The Golden State. Adding to my list, and can’t wait to check out your blog!

  2. Whenever I’m in a reading dry spell, I like to find a new series to really sink into. I’ve just picked up the Verlaque and Bonnett Provençal mystery series by M.L. Longworth and it’s been a delightful romp so far. Lots of lovely details about food, architecture, art, clothing, history, culture, and with a mystery too!
