'Whatcha Reading?' Wednesday!

So what has everyone been reading this week?  If you've been following my new posts you'll know that I read a Mary Higgins Clark book called "I'll Walk Alone" ... and didn't like it very much.  Apparently Ms Clark's earlier works are a lot better than her later books so I'm willing to give her another shot.  This book just didn't match with my expectations.

I'm currently reading (and almost finished) "Bad Boy Jack" by Josephine Cox.  She's one of my go-to authors if I want an easy read set in England.  Usually her books are set in the late 1800's-early 1900's.  They have interesting characters and move at a good pace. 

Next up?  I have no idea.  I have so many books on my bookshelves that are calling to me.  For example, "The Time Traveller's Wife" by Audry Niffenegger which I had tried reading years ago but couldn't get past a grown man spying on a child.  Since I've heard so many great things about this book I feel like I should give it another shot.  I also have "One Day" by David Nicholls (which was made into a move with Anne Hathaway as well as "The Castaways" by Elin Hilderbrand (an author that I haven't read before but have seen quite a bit in bookstores).  But I also really want to re-read "The Winter's Sea" by Susanna Kearsley.  So many books, so little time.

What do you suggest I read?  What are you all reading now??  Have you found any new authors, series??

I love Elin Hilderbrand. I have read them all, and always anxiously wait for her next release. The Castaways is terrific, but the Blue Bistro was my favourite.

I wasn't crazy about The Time Traveller's Wife - it was a little creepy and just left me wishing it would hurry up and end. Although the book was slightly better than the movie which was awful! I'm ready the latest Steve Berry thriller, The Emperor's Tomb. He was still a lawyer when he wrote his first book and actually did the closing on our first house. He's always a good read, with some good scenery and a good dose of historical fiction thrown in.

LauraorLianne@SomethingFromNothing -- Thanks for the suggestion of "Blue Bistro" from Hilderbrand. I'll keep that in mind for future reading.

Jen@Three Little Piglets -- Ok, so it wasn't just me. So many people were all ga-ga over Time Traveller's Wife and I just couldn't get into it. I had heard that the movie was horrid. :(

I haven't read a thriller in quite awhile. Steve Berry sounds like an interesting author (who I haven't heard of before). I'll try to find him at our library tomorrow. Thanks! :)
