What I'm Reading Right Now (7)

Quote of the day:
In the light, we read the inventions of others; in the darkness we invent our own stories.  
-Alberto Manguel

I am currently reading a book by English author Jeffrey Archer titled 'Only Time Will Tell'. I picked up this book to read on my way back from my mini trip last week and it has truly turned out to be a great page turner, and a fast moving one at that.

The book is a first in a series that tells the incredible story of a family across generations and the events that shaped their lives. The story of Harry Clifton which begins in 1920, and that of his family. He never knew his father-a dock worker, and he was told that he was killed in the war. Its a gripping tale of heartbreaks, secrets and triumph...

I'm more than halfway through and can say its been a great read so far. So tell me what books are you reading at the moment?

Current Listen: Bruno Mars - Locked Out Of Heaven


  1. Sure sounds like a good one.

  2. @Pat Hatt: So far so good, many thanks!

  3. This is next in line on my 'to read' list! I'm almost done with the current book I'm reading and will get to this one very soon. A friend of mine enjoyed it just as much and highly recommended it. I can't wait to get started.

  4. Not reading any book at the moment.Good read.

  5. Great author! I believe he wrote, "Not a Penny More, Not a Penny Less", which I read in my 20s.
    Nice suggestion for a fiction!
    Have a Wonderful Day!
    Peace :)

  6. Currently re-reading 'All The Light We Cannot See' by Anthony Doerr... very good read. Readying myself to read 'Go Set A Watchman' by Harper Lee.

  13. Not reading any in this category at the moment but this sounds like a very good read though. Reading more of Educational books for now like management theories......

  14. Not reading any book at the moment. But yours sounds like a good one to me.

  15. It is a long time since I read Jeffrey Archer's books, yet I always enjoyed them. I guess the gap through his incapacitation put his work out of my mind. I will look out for this book. Thanks.

  16. Is sound like a book I will not put down.

  17. I'm reading the Berglauf Journal 2015. Have just found a book titled The Yellow Wind. It cost 1 euro. Can't remember author's name, but it's about the historical 'thing' involving Arabs and Jews. See how it goes . . .

  18. Yay!! You would love it. I've read books 1-4 in the series... waiting for the 5th.
    I just finished Sons of fortune also by Jeffery Archer. Yet to start a new book. May pause in fiction and pick up something inspirational.

  19. Thank you for the recommendation :)

  20. Not reading any in this category(( Thanks for sharing))

  21. I am reading a (nonfiction ) history of the Americas by Jamake High water. It was written a couple of decades ago, but was well-researched and is quite lyrically written so it stands the test of time.

    1. It is called Native Land. Almost left out the title! Lol

  22. Your book sounds interesting. My latest reading, not so much. I'm in a rut of books, which just aren't catching my full interest. -sigh-

    "...on my way back from my mini trip last week..."

    But this, sounds very, very interesting. A tiny holiday! Yes! Yes! Yes! To where? With whom? What did you discover?<---Not very nosy, am I????


  23. I've never read any Jeffrey Archer but you make this series sound so good I might hve to start reading it. Thanks for the suggestion.

  24. I'm currently reading Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. It's very interesting to see how America and its ideals is viewed from "outsiders." Great read!

  25. At the moment not reading any. Sounds like an interesting book!

  26. I really don't like reading books bt this one sounds nice wud make an interesting read

  27. sounds like a neat ride. i wonder? how do you find your reads? ( :

  28. for now am not reading any lots to do...maybe next week will purchase one..have a great week dearie

  29. Great quote, for openers!
    I am just about finished reading Pearl S. Buck's 'The Good Earth'. It hooked me from the start. What a classic read and she certainly has captured 'man's' true nature.

  30. I won't to be like be you when I grow up.. I wish i can read like you.

  31. Books and books. Oh happy thought
    Right here beside me is "The Oxygen
    Prescription......the miracle of Oxidative'
    therapies." by Nathaniel Altman. That
    smell of rain that you love is ozone.....
    another one of my favorites.

  32. Sounds like an interesting read. I've not read any Archer. I'm currently reading an Elmore Leonard book of short stories. So far, good stuff.

  33. It does sound interesting...another book for my "to read" list :)

    At the present time I am re-reading the true stories of the hardships of women on the westward journey across The American Frontier.

    I have lent this book to so many of my friends who then asked me if they could lend it to their forth and so on...that it took almost two years to have my book returned. Its dust jacket is now showing much wear and tear and it seems to have been read in a shower or the rain because it is also weather beaten :)) I am truly happy that so many wanted to read the diaries of these brave and courageous women and their heartaches as they crossed this great country. Things I never thought of...such as burying loved ones and their children wherever they died and having to leave their graves behind them as they moved on.

    The Title: Women's Diaries of The Westward Journey by Lillian Schlissel.
    copyright 1982...

    There are also photos included.

    Happy Reading...Jan

  39. Sounds good that book you're reading :)
    At the moment I'm more into going out
    and enjoy summer instead of reading :))

  40. Resenha maravilhosa amei a dica do livro,
    tenha uma semana abençoada.

  41. Really awesome post :-)

  42. Sounds like you picked a great read. Onto a new book for me and almost done with my current audio.

  43. Interesting book!

    Right now I'm reading Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins...I got pulled into the trend. :)

  44. Right now, I am not reading.
    I actually set a target for myself early this year but I have been procrastinating but now am on it. Oops! Thank God

  45. I'm locked into a Balcacci story called The Target at the moment. I wanted a change of pace, so this was it. Like yours, it's a page turner, but with high-intrigue and aggressive larger-than-life characters.

  46. Great review! That book sounds amazing!

  47. I've got so many books that I'm working on currently - Five Days at Memorial is probably the best one (nonfic) at the time

  48. I've been meaning to read Archer. I had a few of his old paperbacks in high school, but didn't get to read them. I don't know what happened to them. This looks good.

  49. I used to be an avid reader, and a fan of Archer. I need to get back in the groove and start reading again.

  50. Sounds like a good read. Currently, I am reading Here on Earth by Alice Hoffman and The Casual Vacancy by J.K. Rowling.
    Alice Hoffman is a strong writer, ties the story together well, and has many books published.
    I am just starting J.K. Rowling's book, no opinion yet.

  51. I've read a couple of his books but not that one.
    Right now I'm reading The Aviators Wife.

  52. This sounds enticing.
    I'm reading Brandon and Bryan's Missing Link. It's loads of fun.

  53. I never really read 'books' anymore, which is embarrassing and terrible. I did go thru a period recently of trying to catch up on things, like Virginia Woolf and Faulkner.

    Now I try to keep up with all my New Yorker Magazines. It's tough...I have a pile of unread ones in the bedroom.

    Kudos to you for reading!

  54. I enjoy historical fiction, but haven't read one in a while. This sounds like an emotional read. Thanks for sharing!!!'

    Lindy@ A Bookish Escape

  55. I'm not reading anything at the moment. That seems like a good book though

  56. Currently reading PS I Love You by Lilian Harry

  57. At the moment I am reading, "What every man wants in a woman/What every woman wants in a man by John and Diana Hagee

  58. Love Jeffrey Archer's work because he's a really great storyteller. Hugs...

  59. Sounds like an interesting book! I love Bruno Mars too :)

    Right now, I'm reading War & Peace by Tolstoy, and it's pretty good.

  60. Agree. Some of my best work is done in darkness.

  61. The story of this book sounds really nice:)
    Btw I like Bruno Mars songs:)

  62. That is probably the best quote I've read all year - thanks for sharing, really!


  63. I'm reading Great Harry by Carolly Erickson written 35 years ago. It's about England's King Henry VIII and quite interesting.

  64. i am reading the writings of Julian of Norwich.

  65. I have never tried one of his books. Maybe one day

  66. Jeffrey Archer is an amazing story-teller.. I hope that you are enjoying the book!

  67. Hello, I haven't read any Jeffrey Archer for years so great tip, I did enjoy his books. Just finished Girl on a Train which was an easy holiday read. Also loved the Reluctant fundamentalist. Both super options. Cheers x

  68. Just finished the new Jack reacher book from Child. It is mindless reading, but just what I needed after finishing grad school.

  69. This book has been on my list for quite some time now. I'm currently reading Lovers and Gamblers by Jackie Collins :) Guilty pleasure!
