Ramble: What to Read Next?

I plowed through six Julia Quinn novels in three days. I have two more to read to finish the Bridgerton Series but my mind was getting overloaded and I need a rest from the romance novel. I'm also reading a book on the modern church for the book club at church and a book on manner that I must read in small doses because it tends to spark rants about the state of manners in society - really long rants.

I need a book for the interum. Therefore, I ran my Book List through a random number generator and these are the first five choices:

The Martyred Christian: 160 Readings by Dietrich Bonhoeffer and ed. by Joan Winmill Brown

Fodor's 2004: Ireland ed. by Karen Cure

Leading Religions of the World by Max Stilson

The Madwoman in the Attic: The Woman Writer and the 19th Century Literary Imagination by Sandra Gilbert and Susan Guber

Description by Monica Wood (Elements of Writing Fiction)

I admit I'm not enamorded with these choices. Yes, they are my books and I purchased them to read but I am looking for something...not them. Perhasp the next five?

Heat Stroke by Rachel Craine (Weatherwarden, Book 2)

First They Killed My Father: A Daughter of Cambodia Remembers by Luong Ung

Community Nurse by Lucy Agnes Hancock

On Prejudice: A Global Perspective by Daniela Gioseffi

The Messenger by Lois Lowry

Still not enamored. Le sigh. I shall to fall back on the tried'n'true method of staring at the bookshelves until something catches my brain.


  1. Honestly, I think your "tried 'n' true method" is the best bet. I find that a certain book will call to me as I peruse the shelves, caressing the spines and flirting with the first few pages, and suddenly I find myself enjoying a book that I never expected to be reading right now!

  2. Now would be the appropriate time to start reading the Hunger Games again. Finish them. The end.
