Booking Through Thursday

Booking Through ThursdayA weekly meme about (mostly) books and reading. This week’s question is:
What are you reading right now? What made you choose it? Are you enjoying it? Would you recommend it?

I’m currently reading How To Be An American Housewife by Margaret Dilloway.

A lively and surprising novel about a Japanese woman with a closely guarded secret, the American daughter who strives to live up to her mother’s standards, and the rejuvenating power of forgiveness.

I received this from LibraryThing’s Early Reviewer program. I selected it because it had a lot of elements I liked in a novel: women’s fiction about a mother and daughter, taking place in past and present and about a culture different from my own. I hadn’t heard anything about the book before I saw it as a selection on LibraryThing.

I’ve read the first 100 pages and am enjoying the story. I should have it finished soon because I want to know what the secret is that Shoko has been hiding from her family. So far I like it a lot and would recommend it. I’ll have a review up next week.

    I’m reading Scarlett by Alexandra Ripley. It’s considered a sequel to Gone With the Wind.
    I choose this because my Mother-in-law gave it to me and suggested I read it. (I love my MIL)

    Ohh, you’ve got me hooked! Sounds like a great book. I think my Amazon account will be taking a hit this week, LOL
