btt,btt

It’s a holiday weekend here in the U.S., so let’s keep today’s question simple–What are you reading? Anything special? Any particularly juicy summer reading?

I am currently reading P.S. I Love You by Cecilia Ahern. I will not brief you on the summary since I am sure most of you must have read the book, or even watched the movie. I am also reading a Harlequin Mills and Boon romance, The Greek Tycoon's Defiant Bride by Lynne Graham. I quite enjoy reading the Harlequin romances because they are light and fun to read (although some of their titles and bookcovers make me cringe).

I hope everyone from the U.S. has a great holiday weekend!

  1. I have the book on Mt. TBR, but I haven't read it yet nor have I seen the movie. Is it good? The movie trailers look good. Enjoy your Fourth!

    I have PS I Love You on this summer's list but I keep putting off because it's bound to be sad! How are you finding it?

    I've been working my way through re-reads of Suzanne Brockmann's Troublshooter series for the last couple of weeks. But for a break right now I'm reading My Seven Years in Captivity by Bill Seaton. It's a light-hearted memoir about his years as PR director at the San Diego Zoo.

    Hi Melody, I've read P.S. I Love You some years back and that one made me cried buckets. It's a good book.

    Koolaidmom, Joanna - I haven't really read much of the book but so far I find it ok.

    Ruth - I'm only in the third book of Suzanne's Troubleshooter series. I know she'll have another new release out soon. I guess I need to speed up my reading! ;) I've not heard of the book you mentioned but it sounds interesting.

    Alice - Ah...another tear-jerker book. Glad to hear you enjoyed it.

    Sometimes the summer calls for light reading.

    I've always admired those who read more than one book at a time.

    I enjoyed PS I Love You, but I was surprised that the movie was so different. I was even more surprised that I actually enjoyed both the book and the movie!

    Just wanted to say that I love your two "buttons" in the sidebar of your blog ("Books: My Reason for Living", and "Reading Challenge Addict, and Proud of It")! Can I make a suggestion? (you don't have to take it...)... Why not link that second button (about Reading Challenges) to the "A Novel Challenge" blog that gives info on ALL the reading challenges out there in the blogosphere?
    A Novel Challenge

    Just an idea. ;)


  10. I am thinking of picking up a few Mills an Boons. After too much diffiult reads, I need a hange!

    Bookin through holidays

    Hey Melody! I love "P.S I Love You" movie. Really enjoy it but wasn't surprise it different from the book. I haven't actually read the book but normally from past experience with my favorite books turning into the movie, it always the case of it being different from the movies version. I think you might enjoy both :)

    Happy BTT !

    I'd like to do a re-read of P. S. Love You. Its been years since I first read it!


  13. Melody Says:

    Chris - I agree. :)

    Smilingsal - I try to read a different genre so to avoid any confusion. ;p

    Skrishna - I've been hearing great things about both the book and the movie versions! I'll have to look out for the DVD.

    Mizb - Thanks! I think that's a great idea! I'll try to link it soon. :)

    Gautami - I'm thinking the same thing too. ;)

    Julia - Another movie fan! I agree that sometimes the movie is slightly different from the book so as to appeal more to the movie goers than the booklovers, hehe.

    Jen - It's always a joy to re-read those books which we had enjoyed, isn't it? :)

    I just watched the film on the way back from Toronto and spent it blubbing. I hope you enjoy the book as I am vertainly going to buy the film and see if Alex cries as well :) ENjoy your romance book too.


  15. Jaimie Says:

    I didn't know that movie was adapted from a book!
    Enjoy your Harlequin!


  16. Melody Says:

    Rhinoa - I'll have to look out for the film as well!!

    Jaimie - I understand that the book was a hit when it was first released. It's no wonder that they decided to make it into a movie. I've finished the Harlequin book and thought it was enjoyable. :)
