Hey, whatcha reading?

I am inaugurating a new (hopefully regular, as in monthly) feature on The Sunflower's Scribbles, called Hey, whatcha reading?

I'm literally just going to ask people what they're currently reading. It's pretty simple :-)

For the first installment, I pestered my best friend Nali because she's always reading an interesting book.

1. What book are you currently reading?

I'm currently reading The Lost City of the Money God by Douglas Preston (2017, Grand Central Publishing). I usually try to alternate between non-fiction and fiction. A co-worker recommended it.

2. How far along in the book are you?

Two chapters. Thus far, it's really gripping.

3. What is the book about?

It's based on a true story about an adventure to the Honduran rainforest looking for this lost civilization. When they get back, they realized they've contracted a disease and there's a medical mystery, too. By reading this, I'm traveling vicariously. It was either this or a book about tea.

4. What drew you to reading this book?

I don't know anything about the Honduran rain forest and the writing so far is exciting and suspenseful! And I was drawn to the adventure aspects, too.

5. Who would you recommend this book to?

Someone who is into history. It's an easy read for my commute--and it covers a lot of topics: adventure, medicine, history, diseases, archeology, little bit of politics. The writing is very vivid.

If you find yourself reading a book and want to share it in next month's Hey, whatcha Reading?, get in touch via Twitter @Sunflowerrei or through the Contact form.

And of course, share what your current read is in the comments below!


  1. Oh, this is fun! ^_^
    I want to read a book similar to how this is written about a guy's quest to explore Atlantis.

    I just started listening to Steve Job's biography, and I'm also reading a horror novel about a woman who lives in an old plantation house and it's haunted!

  2. Yeah, I thought it'd be fun. I'll be asking another person about what they're reading next month, so it may be you, who knows!

    I'm reading A Conspiracy in Belgravia by Sherry Thomas right now and Thirteen Years at The Russian Court by Pierre Gilliard.
