It's Monday! What Are You Reading?


Good morning. I hope you had a good weekend. I had a wonderful time celebrating my birthday all weekend. I went out to a couple delicious dinners and got to sleep in late on Saturday morning. It was nice.

I got a lot of writing done last week. First, I wrote up my month in review for January. I read more than I had expected to in January. I also started making progress on two of the challenges I'm participating in this year.

I wrote a review of a memoir called Repairing Rainbows by Lynda Fishman. I also wrote a review of a thriller called Child 44 by Tom Rob Smith. And I wrote a review of Murder on the Down Low by Pamela Samuels Young.

Currently Reading
I'm now reading Room by Emma Donoghue. This is my February book club book. I'm about halfway through the book and it's good. I've been wanting to read it for a while, so I'm glad to finally be getting to it! I'm also reading Elephant Talk by Anne Downer.

Up Next
I'm not sure what I'll move onto next. I have Final Vector by Allan Leverone to read for review. And I have several other books on my shelf and on my Nook that I've been wanting to read for a while. I'm also planning to write some reviews this week, including The Water is Wide and The Mouse and the Motorcycle by Beverly Cleary.

  1. I have Room sitting on my desk and I'm not sure why I haven't read it yet - I think maybe I'm waiting for the buzz to die down? Not sure! Here's my Mailbox: Coffee and a Book Chick -- Mailbox Monday...
