Sunday Salon

Setting:
I’m sitting in The Leisure Club (my favorite place in downtown Pensacola), enjoying a latte and listening to “Believe” by The Bravery, which is playing overhead.

Recently Finished:
The Word Exchange by Alena Graedon
You know, this one didn’t quite live up to the hype for me. Still very enjoyable, though. I’ll be gathering my thoughts and hope to post a review later this week.
Recently DNF:
Night in Shanghai by Nicole Mones
I sooooo wanted to love this one! But it didn’t click with me, and I really think it could be a timing thing (especially considering my recent slump). I read enough to be able to tell it could be an amazing read for a certain type of reader, though! I’ll say a bit more and spotlight it tomorrow as part of a tour.
Currently Reading: 
Astonish Me by Maggie Shipstead
This is my first time reading Maggie Shipstead, and I’m completely in love with her writing and character building. I want to ignore everything else in my life and get lost in this book. *sigh*
Can’t Wait To Read:
Stand Up Straight and Sing! by Jessye Norman
Looooove Jessye Norman! Just opened her autobiography. Looking forward to reading about her in her own words. I’d heard a lot of stories from my late piano teacher, who taught her accompanist. 😉
Celebrating:
Holy Week begins today. Musically, this is my favorite time of the church year. So, speaking of Jessye Norman, I’ll close with this:

    Thank you for Jessye Norman and the choir.

    I really like the quick way you reviewed the book. I also like Jessye Norman. Thanks, enjoyed your blog today.
