It’s been awhile since I linked up with Anne for Twitterature. Much of my reading the past few months has been rereading… I read the Harry Potter series again and Tim and I just started reading The Chronicles of Narnia aloud before bed. I’ve only read two new books in the meantime.
Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking by Susan Cain
I can’t stop talking/thinking about this book! Examines all angles of an introvert’s inner workings and how they function in an extroverted world. A must read for introverts; worth the read for extroverts. #INFJ
Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? by Mindy Kaling
Writer and star of The Office riffs on her childhood, love life, and time in NY. A couple chuckles. No gaffaws. A decent read for my 12 hour day of airplane travel, but not as funny as I was hoping (and certainly not worth buying). #funnierontv
A Beautiful Mess: A Perfectionist’s Journey Through Self-Care, which I only got half-way through earlier this summer.
Bread and Wine a second time for a book club.
Emily Freeman’s A Million Little Ways will be in my mailbox this Wednesday!

Had to smile at the contrast between your 2 books! An introvert would probably say, “Is everyone hanging out without me? I hope so.”
Quiet is great; I really enjoyed it and found it very affirming.
Haha! I hadn’t thought of that Jeannie, but I totally agree :)
I thought the same thing.
Okay – I started Quiet but haven’t finished it. I think it will be on my list after I finish my 31 days series (for November), and I am totally gonna have to link up at Anne’s place – I love books.
And sorry to hog your comments feed, but I am totally doing the InBloom book club for Emily’s new book.
Hog away! :) Have you done an InBloom book club before? I was tempted when Bread and Wine was the book, but I don’t know much about it and I ended up devouring BW in a couple days…
I wrote a more lengthy review for Kindred Grace that will be out later this month – it’s so worth reading! You should definitely link up with Anne. I’d like to know what you were reading… Also, I’m really enjoying your 31 Days series!
LOVED Quiet, and I also read Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me this month and posted about it. Thought it was funny, but like you said, I wouldn’t buy 20 copies for my friends or anything :) I keep hearing about A Million Little Ways and hope to read it!
I loved Grace For The Good Girl, so I’m betting that A Million Little Ways will be great as well!
I’m nodding along to your reviews of Quiet (amazing!) and Mindy Kaling (good for an airplane)–those summaries sound about right to me.
Bread and Wine sounds like a good choice to read twice!
Both of your books are on my to-read list, and I actually own the former. Now I’m curious about the InBloom book club.
Mindy’s is a quick read, but to be honest, I wish I had spent my travel day reading something else…
I’ve just started reading through the Harry Potter series. I’ve knocked out the first two books and was OK with stopping there. However, a commenter over on my blog suggested keep going and I won’t be disappointed. Sounds like you’ve loved the HP series! Bread and Wine is on my to-read list. I just joined a book club, so maybe I can convince them to make it a future selection.
Congrats on the baby boy news! (I saw it when checking out your site.) We have a 4 year old boy and 7 year old girl. A boy is truly an adventure and he melts my heart on a daily basis!
I do love the HP series and I totally agree with that commenter – keep going! Prisoner from Azkaban was one of my favorites and the series as a whole is just great.
Bread and Wine is one of my favorite books I’ve read this year. Well worth the read.
I loved Quiet! It definitely helped me put a lot of things into perspective…and feel a little less weird ;)
