It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

Good morning! I hope all of you who celebrate had a wonderful Christmas and are enjoying Hanukkah still. I guess today is Boxing Day and Kwanzaa too. Isn't December fun? Of course, it's also been a bit stressful for me, but these last few days have been great. We all really enjoyed Christmas this year, and we all got some great gifts. The kids are very happy with all the things they got, and I'm very happy with my new mother's ring!!!!

As far as reading goes, I read The Buddha in the Attic by Julie Otsuka. It was from NetGalley and I realized last week that it was about to expire! It was an interesting books. I still have to think about what I want to say in my review. Hopefully I'll have time to write it this week.

I did review Jacob T. Marley by R. William Bennett last week. What a great book! Click on the title to read my review.

I also shared a few of the Christmas and Hanukkah books my kids and I have been reading.

And I posted about the Book Blogger Holiday Swap, which I participated in for the second year.

Currently Reading
I'm still reading Shanghai Girls by Lisa See since I read The Buddha in the Attic last week. Funny that they're both about Asian women being married off to American men.

Up Next
I think I'll read The Ruins of Us by Keija Parssinen next. It's another NetGalley book and since we'll be traveling for New Year's, I'll want to read something that's on my Nook.

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.

    I'm still on vacation but I've caught a cold. I've been too sick to get much reading done. Please come see what I'm reading.
