What I'm Reading Right Now (15)


Quote of the day: 
Elegance isn't solely defined by what you wear. It's how you carry yourself, how you speak, what you read. 
-Carolina Herrera

For this week, its back to John Grisham with a book titled 'The Racketeer'. It's a bit slow in the beginning, but things pick up pretty fast. I find the story disjointed in places and the narrative can be quite disruptive at times.

The story is about a prison inmate, Malcolm Bannister- who is halfway through a 10-year sentence for money laundering charges. A sudden murder of a Federal Judge suddenly changes the dynamics of things, and with the belief that he knows who the killer is, he senses an opportunity for his freedom and fights to get himself out from prison -as a free man.

Its a fascinating read so far and is interesting for the most part.

What books are you reading at the moment?

  1. It's a bit slow in the beginning, but things pick up pretty fast. I find the story disjointed in places and the narrative can be quite disruptive at times. And this is why I don't read Grisham. All his books are this way to me and often far too technical.

    Have a fabulous day. ☺

  9. Just started The Floor of The Sky by Pamela Carter Joern. Was in a stack of books that were gifted to me. Had no idea it was a young adult book but it is quite good so far because of the interesting characters. :)

  11. Reading 1,000 Lashes by Raif Badawi. It features 15 of his blogposts that were salvaged before the Saudis deleted them all. The power of the pen is mighty, and mightily feared. Badawi is serving 10 years with 1,000 lashes and a $250,000 fine. All proceeds to his family in Canada.

  17. I wonder if John Grisham has written too many stories at this point. Some authors seem to burn out. Hope it picks up for you.

  21. I've read most of John Grisham's books including this one, which I thought was pretty good. I'm still working on Jeffrey Archer's 'Best kept secret'. I've been very busy lately and don't have enough free time to read like I usually do.

  24. Right now I would do better with a John Grisham book. Recently someone gave me a book by Lucy Anne Holmes because it was funny. It was, but a bit crude at times. However, it did give me a laugh as well as an insight into the way girls behave these days. So I tried another one of hers on the kindle (I don't seem to get the 'flavour' of a book on the kindle) which is so trashy I can't finish it.
