Feature Follow Friday (8)

It's Feature Friday again!

This week, the question is simple: What book are you reading right now and how do you like it?

I'm reading a bunch of books!

1) Daring Greatly - This would maybe fall into self-help. I'm reading it for a review program I'm in, and, honestly, I love it. It's scientific research into shame and vulnerability and how to accept and rise above it.  I'd never have read it by myself. I'm glad I signed up for it!

2) 1, 2, 3 Magic! - I like this book, too. I'm not able to use it as effectively as I would like, but we're getting there.

3) Love and Summer - This is a slow-moving, time period book, but I do enjoy the imagery and the way the author subtly weaves the different storylines together, creating an undercurrent out of the things the reader would feel is the most important.

4) The Portrait of a Lady - I'm really enjoying this book. James' language is thick, obviously, but once you get into it, the characterizations is phenomenal, as is the commentary on the period.

If you'd like to sign up, do it!
