It's Monday! What Are You Reading?


Last week, I got a lot accomplished! I finally finished Middlesex by Jeffrey Eugenides. I really enjoyed it. I'll write my review this week, so keep an eye out for it! I also read and reviewed The Big Ten of Grammar by William B. Bradshaw, PhD, and Drawn to the Land by Elizabeth and Barton Cockey. You can click on those titles to read my reviews.

Finally, I reviewed a children's book called A Book About Color: A Clear and Simple Guide for Young Artists by Mark Gonyea. It's a great introduction to the color wheel for kids.

Currently Reading
I'm reading City of Dreams by William Martin this week. I got a lot of reading done on the plane to NY last night so it shouldn't take long to finish it.

Up Next
I brought Scent of the Missing: Love and Partnership with a Search and Rescue Dog by Susannnah Charlson on my trip as well, so I'll be moving on to that next. I also brought Audience, Relevance, and Search by James Mathewson, Frank Donatone and Cynthia Fishel, and Snow Flower and the Secret Fan by Lisa See, just in case I finish Scent of the Missing on the plane ride home and need something else to read!

  5. Snow Flower and the Secret Fan was a book recommended by author Adrainna Trigiani. She said it was fantastic. I would like to try that one too.

    What are you doing in New York? Vacation or work?

  6. I've been wanting to read Middlesex forever, but it's one of those books that I just keep putting off reading. I'm glad you liked it and look forward to reading your review. Have a great week! :)
