It's Monday! What Are You Reading?


I'm starting to think I need to do all my blogging during the week because lately I never seem to get online on the weekends. This weekend was crazy! We just had so many things going on, I hardly knew which way I was going at any given time. The whole family is dragging this morning.

I had lots of fun at my book club's annual holiday dinner last night. During dinner we did our book swap and I got a copy of The Hypnotist by Lars Kepler. I'm looking forward to reading it in the new year.

I did get some blogging done last week. I put up my last two Picture Book Month posts, talking about the books we read during Week Four and Week Five. It was so much fun to read a picture book for every day! And we managed to hit every theme using just the books on our bookshelves.

I read and reviewed 140 Characters: A Style Guide for the Short Form by Dom Sagolla. I also got pretty far in The Secret Speech by Tom Rob Smith, but haven't finished it yet.

I posted my November Month in Review. I cannot believe this year is almost over! And I signed up for the Narnia Reading Project 2012. My son is reading the Narnia books so I'm going to buy the set and read them myself as well.

Several people have signed up for my first year-long challenge: The Non-Fiction Non-Memoir Reading Challenge. If you enjoy reading nonfiction or want to try it out, sign up! You can read as few as 5 nonfiction books in 2012 and still qualify for the giveaway!

Currently Reading
I'm currently reading The Secret Speech by Tom Rob Smith.

Up Next
Next I'll be reading Jacob T. Marley by R. William Bennett. I realized the galley is going to expire in just a few days so I'll be reading this one quickly!! Looking forward to getting into the holiday spirit!

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.

  1. I have seen your Challenge, well done, good luck with it. I only started reading Memoirs last year and those don't count. Your challenge would help me get some business reading done though, lol

  3. Same here, Julie! This time of year is just so busy. My husband said to me last night, "Weekend? Did we have a weekend?" It was very hectic...and we haven't even gotten to the holiday-related things yet!

    Enjoy your books this week -

  5. Now I'm reading "Vampire diaries" by L.J. Smith, because I love novels with this kind of subject. I find it very interesting, it's a book which can be read by all people and it keeps drawing your attention in every moment. I have it on my new e-book reader and I downloaded from All you can books, site told by my brother-in-law. I also think that I'll buy the book to have it on my library!

  6. I'm reading the Night Circus at the moment, which is wonderful. Wish I had more time in the day for it.
