Still on my list of books that I'm "actively" reading are The Bonjour Effect and Eleven Minutes Late. Both of them take more brain power than I have by the time I crawl into bed at the end of the day, and I've been averaging 1-2 pages before I find my head nodding and the words swirling around the page. Don't get me wrong - they are great books - I'm just, if not old, at least more tired now.
Since I hate the feeling of a never-ending book, I keep throwing an Agatha Christie/Hercule Poirot mystery into the mix so that I have some sense of accomplishment, and still knock out books towards my Goodreads goal of 50 books in 2018.
This last week I finished up Cards on the Table (you can read my review of it on Goodreads) and started reading Cat Among the Pigeons - a murder mystery set at an all-girls school. Dead teachers, hidden treasures, forbidden marriages and, of course, the always brilliant Hercule Poirot to sort it all out.
Looking Ahead: I have two books that I'm quite excited about reading, but won't allow myself to start until I finish Bonjour and Eleven (motivation to keep going). The first is A Hobbit, a Wardrobe, and a Great War: How J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis Rediscovered Faith, Friendship, and Heroism in the Cataclysm of 1914-1918 by Joseph Loconte, and the second is Why the Dutch are Different by Ben Coates (being married into a Dutch family, I thought it might be good to know - HA!). Check them out on Amazon, and if you're interested in joining me in a read-together, online book club (of sorts), let me know in the comments or on Facebook.
