What are you Reading? ~ May 18, 2016

What are you Reading?  Let me know what your current read is, what you recently finish reading, and what you plan on reading next! 

Here's my list: 

I've just started reading Scarlett Epstein Hates it Here by Anna Breslaw. It looks like it will be a cute book. We shall see!

I finished reading To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee. It was really good. I like Scout, and I liked seeing this story through her eyes. I'm not sure if I want to read Go Set A Watchman because I don't think I want to see Atticus in a different light. 

What's next? I'm thinking about reading Lady Susan by Jane Austen with the Austenesque Lovers TBR Pile Reading Challenge Group on Goodreads.

I'm linking up with This Week In Books hosted by Lipsyy Lost & Found.

Check out what she's reading!

On Saturday, I attended the JASNA-SW Spring Meeting. It was held on the Queen Mary, which was really cool! One of the speakers was Bernie Su, the creator of The Lizzie Bennet Diaries and Emma Approved. He and some of the cast members were there to talk about the making of Emma Approved

Plus, I won one of the prize baskets that were raffled off that day! Woot! 

So, how was your week? Are you reading anything good? 


  1. Your encounter with the Emma group and a prize sounds fantastic. Congrats, Candy! I miss having those podcasts to look forward to.

    Oh yes, do join in for Lady Susan. I finished last weekend. She's a hoot!

    I get your reservations about having your impressions of Atticus ruined. Glad you liked To Kill a Mockingbird.

    1. Hey, Sophia Rose! It was a fun day! I'm really glad I went. I wasn't going to, but a the last minute, (well, the last day to register) I decided to go.

      Yes, I think I will! I've wanted to read 'Lady Susan' for a while now. So, yeah!

      Have you read 'Go Set a Watchman'?

  2. Hi Candy! I am about the only person I know who couldn't get in to 'To Kill a Mockingbird'. I am glad you enjoyed it. I hope to fit 'Lady Susan' in this month too. Currently I am reading Jane Odiwe's 'Jane Austen Lives Again', really enjoying it.

    It must have been good to meet the Emma Approved cast - I'm sure I'm not the only one with the jingle from the series going through my head now!

    1. Hi, Ceri! I didn't find 'To Kill a Mockingbird' a quick read that's for sure, so I can see how you might not get into it. Until the trial, it slowly moved along. But I liked Scout, Jem, and Dill, and all their shenanigans.

      'Jane Austen Lives Again' looks really cute! Fun looking cover.

      It was fun! Honestly, I haven't watched 'Emma Approved' yet, but I will! I loved 'The Lizzie Bennet Diaries', but didn't watch it until the end. I kinda forgot about Emma. So sad! Sounds like I will like the Martin and Harriet storyline in the series. :)

  3. I love To Kill A Mockingbird. I'm glad that you enjoyed it :-)

  4. So cool that you met the cast of Emma Approved and got pictures with them! And won an awesome gift basket! How fun!

    1. Hey Meredith! It was cool! I'm so glad I went (I almost didn't). And the gift basket was a nice bonus! It was a wonderful day. :)
