It's Monday! What Are You Reading This Week?

I think maybe this week it should be what am I NOT reading because I cannot seem to get into anything!  I AM plugging away at The Fox Woman by Kij Johnson, but it is a book to be read slowly, to savor, and therefore is not ‘grabbing me by the nose hairs’ as it were.  I desperately need something to grab my nose hairs and not turn me loose until the final page!   So I’m begging you, I am PLEADING with you, what can I read that will do this for me!??!?!  Because I am getting desperate!!!   What books have grabbed you and not turned you loose until it was done?  What was the last book you read in one sitting?  What do I need to drop everything and read?  Please help! 

I did manage to read one book last week, Bayou Vol. 1 by Jeremy Love, which was AMAZING.  I should have a buddy review of that very soon.   And I am still listening to The Forgotten Garden by Kate Morton which is just lovely and also extremely long.  I *think* I will finish it this week.  (God, I hope so.) 

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading This Week? is a weekly event to list the books  finished last week, the books currently being read, and the books to be finish this week. It was created by J.Kaye’s Book Blog, but is now being hosted by Sheila from One Person’s Journey Through a World of  Books.!

  1. I feel you on the book stickiness! I'm sort of floating through three books right now that I've been reading since October…just can't get into them!

    The last un-put-down-able book I read was Alice I Have Been by Melanie Benjamin. Great historical novel about the girl that inspired Lewis Carroll's Alice. V, v good.

  2. Hmmmm…

    The books that have done that for me this year that you *might* enjoy are:

    Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close by Jonathan Safron Foer

    Enchanted Night: a novella by Steven Millhauser

    The Vanishing of Katharina Linden by Helen Grant

    those are my non-sci fi, fantasy ones anyway.
