It's Monday! What Are You Reading?



What a difference a week makes! Last week, I was here telling you I had read 929 pages the week before. Today, I can only report about 150 pages for the whole week! I didn't finish a single book and I only managed to put up one review.

The review is for a memoir called Before the Last All Clear by Ray Evans, who was evacuated to Wales when he was six years old to escape from the danger of World War II. I'm hosting a giveaway of a copy of this book and it ends tonight ~ so be sure to Enter Now!

Currently Reading
I'm still reading Commune of Women by Suzan Still. I haven't gotten very far, honestly.

Up Next
I plan to move on to The Revisionists by Thomas Mullen next. I also have signed up for two different read-a-thons for next weekend (see my right sidebar for links), so hopefully I'll get through another book or two during those. I also have two books I need to review.

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.

  3. When reading that you'd only read 150 pages, I was going to suggest a readathon, but I see you knew about them already.

    I'm doing the 24h readathon. Not sure I'd manage two.

    Have a fun week!

  5. Been there with a bad book week. I'm not one who can put a book aside even if it's a bad one so sometimes when I've got a real snorer it sometimes takes me a couple if weeks to get through it. I hope this week goes better for you!

  6. No worries, Julie, some weeks are just like that! This time of year seems to get especially busy.

    Hope you enjoy your books this week!

Banned Books Week: Junie B. Jones by Barbara Park

This is the end of Banned Books Week and unfortunately, I haven't had a lot of time to write about banned books this year. But I did want to include at least one post about it, so today I wanted to share one of the book series that it seems most people are surprised to find on the list: Junie B. Jones by Barbara Park.

According to Wikipedia:
The Junie B. Jones series came in at #71 on the American Library Association's list of the Top 100 Banned or Challenged Books from 2000-2009. Reasons cited are poor social values taught by the books and Junie B. Jones not being considered a good role model due to her mouthiness and bad spelling/grammar. This is an interesting example of a banned book. Many times there are serious, controversial topics featured in books that are challenged. Things like homosexuality, drugs, vulgar language, etc. You can actually understand why people may not want their children to read those books, and why they may challenge their inclusion in school libra…

Book Review: No Story to Tell by KJ Steele

Victoria has been put down since the day she was born. First by her parents who were disappointed that she survived while her twin brother died. Then by her verbally abusive husband and his low-life friends. But soon an intriguing artist named Elliott arrives in town and starts encouraging Victoria to follow her dream of opening her own dance studio. She also begins to receive phone calls from a mysterious someone who gets her to open up about her past and face her true feelings.

In No Story to Tell, KJ Steele has captured the small-town atmosphere and brought these characters to life. From the victimized Victoria, to her drunk and obnoxious husband Bobby and his drunk and obnoxious friends, to all the side characters who you'd expect to encounter in a town like this ~ all are so realistic in both their actions and their voices. She has written a compelling story of an abused woman who thinks she is trapped in this loveless, miserable existence. But then she finds a spark of hope…

Have you ever felt like someone was watching you? You will after reading Clare Mackintosh's latest release I See You. Told from the perspectives of two women, one who appears to be targeted by a criminal and the other who is the police officer working the case, this psychological thriller will have you looking over your own shoulder by the end.

Zoe is a typical working mother who takes the Underground through London to her office every day. Like most commuters, she has a routine that she follows every day, leaving home at the same time, sitting in the same train car, taking the same route to work from the station. It's habit. But she starts to realize this may not be a good idea after seeing her own photo in an advertisement in the newspaper. Another woman who appears in the advertisement is murdered and Zoe starts to ge…
