It's Monday! What Are You Reading?


I'm back! I was on vacation last week, so didn't get around to publishing my weekly recap. But I'm back now and I got some reading done over the past couple weeks despite the lack of blogging.

I published a review of The Girls: A Novel by Lori Lansens. I also read and reviewed Finding Marco by Kenneth C. Cancellara. And I finished reading The Middle Place by Kelly Corrigan. You can click on the title for my review of that one as well.

Currently Reading
Middlesex by Jeffrey Eugenides ~ This was just chosen as our September book club selection, and I'm hosting. So I figured I'd read it now and pass it along to others in my group. I'm also almost done with the audio version of A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L'Engle. I tried to listen to it on my ride to and from the beach, but with two kids in the car with me, I got interrupted too many times to finish it.

Up Next
I think I'll move on to City of Dreams by William Martin next. I also have a couple non-fiction books on my Summer Reading list that I think I'll try to fit in.

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.

  2. I loved Middlesex. It's such a wonderful book. A Wrinkle in Time was one of my favorites as a kid, but I have yet to revisit it as an adult.

  3. Read your review on The Girls and enjoyed your thoughts. Although not a book I would probably pick up I think is cool that the author was able to get both girls voice so distinct. Hope you have a great week.

  5. Glad you enjoyed a nice vacation! I've wanted to read Middlesex for a long time - it's one of those really popular books I can't believe I missed.
