It's Monday! What Are You Reading?


Happy New Year! It's been a very slow couple of weeks for reading in my house. I'm hoping to get back into it now that the holidays are over and we are finally getting back to our normal routine around here!

Last week, I read and reviewed Blood of My Brother by James Lepore. I also put up a list of my favorite books read in 2010. And I took a look back at 2010, and made some goals for 2011.

Currently Reading
I'm currently reading Blue by Lou Aronica. There's a lot of fantasy in this book, which is something I haven't read in a long time, but I'm really enjoying it. I actually sat up late last night and got through half of it in one sitting.

I've also started A Secret Kept by Tatiana de Rosnay on my new Nook. I can't decide if I'll be able to keep one going on the Nook while I have another regular book going at the same time, but I'm going to try.

Up Next
This week, I'll be interviewing Lou Aronica about Blue and about his new fiction imprint, The Fiction Studio. I'll also be moving on to my January book club selection, Picking Cotton by Jennifer Thompson-Cannino, Ronald Cotton and Erin Torneo.

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.
