It's Monday! What Are You Reading?


I finally got back to some blogging this past week! I put up a review of The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest by Stieg Larsson. It was thrilling to finish the series, but also sad to have it end. Now I guess I need to look forward to seeing the movies, which I've heard are pretty good.

I also reviewed a great new children's book called Dinorific Poetry. This book is written by Michael Sgrignoli and illustrated by his young son. My kids and I have really enjoyed it.

I'm still looking for audio book suggestions, so if you've listened to a great book that lasted about 6-8 hours, please let me know! Right now, my top choice is On Writing by Stephen King. If you've listened to this one or read it, let me know what you thought!

I finished Snow Flower and the Secret Fan by Lisa See. I really enjoyed it and can see why so many people recommended it. It seems everyone who has read it has loved it. I'll put up my review later this week.

Currently Reading
I'm now reading Saving Max by Antoinette van Heugten.

Up Next
The next book on my list is Bobo's Daughter by Bonnie Barnett. Then I'm going to take some time to read over a manuscript for a friend of a friend.

    I am listening to Laura Lippman's I Would Know You Anywhere. I think it is a 10 hour audio but it is really good.

  6. Dinorific Poetry looks great and I'm not typically a poetry fan. It's one I think my son would really love, great review!
