Musing Mondays


Today’s MUSING MONDAYS post is a short meme:

  • WHAT ARE YOU READING RIGHT NOW?
  • WHAT DID YOU RECENTLY FINISH READING, and WHAT DID YOU THINK OF IT?
  • WHAT DO YOU THINK YOU WILL READ NEXT?
  • WILL YOU READ ANY HOLIDAY-THEMED BOOKS SOON?

I have just finished reading The Society of S by Susan Hubbard a while ago before writing this post. It is a coming-of-age story of a young girl in search of her missing mother. It is also a vampire story, but yet this is different from the others I read because of the writing style, the gothic feel and there are lots of intrigue and guessing in this story. I will try to post my review on it soon.

For my next reading, I choose Christmas Jars by Jason F. Wright since it has been sitting on my pile for some time, and moreover I am currently in a mood for holiday-themed books.

What about you?

    The society of S sounds quite gothic. Have you read The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova? I think that's a great take on the classic vampire story.


  2. Beth F Says:

    Hummm, I'll have to add Society of S to my list. I like vampire books.

    And I second The Historian. I really loved it.


  3. Betty Says:

    The Society of S sounds interesting as a coming-of-age vampire story, and I didn't know The Historian was a vampire story too... I should bump it up my TBR list.


  4. Callista Says:

    I'm not into vampire stories.


  5. Christmas Jar seems interesting...

    Read mine here!


  6. Nely Says:

    I plan on reading Christmas Jars within the next week or so... I'll come by to see if you review it.

    Can't wait to read your review of Society of S. I really liked that book and just haven't gotten around to the second one. Right now, I'm about 10 pages from being done with The Maltese Falcon!


  8. The Society of S looks intriguing. Look forward to hearing what you have to say about it.

    Have a good day.

    My Sunday Salon answer also applies to this musing question.

    Can't wait to read your review on The Society of S by Susan Hubbard.

    Are you enjoying Christmas Jars so far? I'm currently reading TRIBUTE by Nora Roberts (joint-reading with Alice). When it come close to Christmas holiday, I might read David Baldacci's THE CHRISTMAS TRAIN. I had this in my TBR pile for 2 or 3 years now.

    The Society of S sounds so good! Can't wait to hear more about it :)


  12. Rebecca Says:

    The Soceity of S certainly sounds interesting. And I'll have to second (or is that third) Kostova's The Historian - it was an excellent read.

    Here's mine

    Hello, everyone! Thanks for your comments. :)

    I really enjoyed The Society of S, it's so intriguing! And no, I haven't read The Historian although I've this in my pile. I've read a lot of great reviews on this so I'm looking forward to reading it soon. :)

    I hope you enjoy The Christmas Jars. I work with Jason and thought you’d like knowing he has a new contest on his web site where you can win a free trip-for-two to his hometown in VA, the Shenandoah Valley. All you have to do is mail him a Christmas card! All the details are here:

    Laura - I'm enjoying Christmas Jars so far and most probably I'll finish the book tomorrow! Thanks so much for the heads up! I'll pop over Jason's site to check out his books and read any news on him. :)
