It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

We just got back from three days at Myrtle Beach visiting my in-laws. It was a beautiful weekend at the beach. The kids even got a chance to play in the sand a bit, although they had to wear jackets. I tried reading some on the way home today, but started getting a little car sick so had to put the Nook away. I really wish I didn't have that problem because I could get some reading done on our car trips. We have a much longer trip planned for March and I'm disappointed I probably won't be able to read during it.

I finished The Shepherd by Ethan Cross last week. It's a thriller that will be published in mid-March. I'll put up my review later this week.

I wrote my review of Room by Emma Donoghue last week. Our February book club meeting isn't until next week, and I'm looking forward to talking with my group about it. I also wrote reviews of some of the books my kids have been reading lately.

Currently Reading
Now I'm reading Final Vector by Allan Leverone. It's another thriller ~ I seem to be reading a lot of thrillers this year. I'm also still reading through Elephant Talk by Ann Downer, and I'm still reading The Story of King Arthur and His Knights by Howard Pyle to C. I just read a chapter or two every other night, so it takes a while to get through books with him.

Up Next
I think I'll read Zero Day by Mark Russinovich next. I also want to get started on my March book club book, My Stroke of Insight by Jill Bolte Taylor.
