It's Monday! What Are You Reading?


This was a slow week here in terms of blogging. It was also a strange week of reading. I finished reading Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator by Roald Dahl for the Birth Year Reading Challenge. This was my last book for this challenge, so once I've written my review I'll be done with it. I have to say I really enjoyed this challenge. It was fun to read books from the year I was born!

I also published my review of Tales from a Spanish Village by Richard A. Barrett.

I didn't finish reading anything else last week! I only got through about 50 pages in The Kitchen House by Kathleen Grissom, which is my November book club selection. I just haven't been in the mood for historical fiction, but I really need to get through this book before my book club meeting! And it's not bad, it's just not what I'm wanting to read right now.

Currently Reading
I'm about halfway through Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins. I couldn't resist starting it when I put The Kitchen House aside. I'm sure I'll finish it quickly and then move back to The Kitchen House.

Up Next
I'll be reading When No One is Watching by Joseph Hayes next. I read the first couple of chapters and am excited to read the rest and see what happens.

I also need to write a review for Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator and put together my recap of the Birth Year Reading Challenge.

What are you reading this week? This meme is being hosted by Sheila at Book Journey, so hop over there if you'd like to see what others are reading too.

  1. I was inspired to start searching for Birth Year books to read for my own personal reading challenge.

    1969 doesnt look exciting for books. I have Charlie and Choc Factory to re-read for that challenge.

    The Kitchen House looks interesting.

    I am reading 84 Charing Cross Road at the moment and really enjoying it.

    enjoy ur week!

  2. Funny that you are not in the mood for Historical Fiction and that is all I am reading :)

    Hope you enjoy the Kitchen House - I am curious about that one.

  3. Looks like you have some great reads! I think I'm one of the few people who still hasn't read the Hunger Games trilogy. Happy reading!

  4. My mom introduced me to the Charlie books years ago and I've always loved them (anything by Roald Dahl, for that matter) :) Sorry it's been a while since I returned your visit to my blog but better late than never. I'm now following. Have a great reading week :D

  8. Oh, that's tough when you "have" to read a book and it's just not what you want to be at that moment.

    I'm sure Mockingjay is a welcome distraction - you'll be through it in no time!
