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.!
Okay ya’ll, where did the week go? I swear, it was like *blink!* I missed it.
Things have been crazy busy around here. The girl was on spring break last week, so she was busy, busy, busy fitting in all the fun she could have in 5 days. It’s back to school today! And can I say, thank goodness! So glad to be back to the routines. Routines are what make our world go round!
Speaking of routines, I bet you can guess what fell by the wayside last week. Yep. Reading. I did DO some, just not the tons of it I always wants to do. I’m into the thick of A Discovery of Witches and wowzers. 1,000 year old vampires are kinda hot. Yet…cold. Can’t wait to read more, I want to know where this is going!
I kinda stalled on Lolita. It’s just so hard to listen to, with Mr. Sexy Creepy Voice Jeremy Irons reading. Being in first person, and him growling out what all is going on… it’s just hard. Plus, I downloaded the new Adele…and you know…things happen. Adele, she is HOT. I will finish it, I must force myself! I have other things I want to be listening too and it is kinda awesome.
Up next? I’m not sure! I’m holding myself back from The Wise Man’s Fear, which my lovely, lovely husband let me get myself for Easter. It’s so heavy! I want to wait and take it to the beach with me, but I must know what happens next! Stay tuned. A co-worker let me borrow a compilation book of M.F.K. Fisher that sounds wonderful. I’ve always wanted to read her work, as I hear she is one of the best food writers that ever was. I plan on getting to that soon. I also managed to snag an advanced edition of Jennifer Donnelly’s The Wild Rose. FINALLY. I feel like I’ve been waiting half my LIFE for that to come out. I am beyond excited. I loved the first two books in that series (The Tea Rose and The Winter Rose).
So? How was your week? What great reading did you get done? What not-so-great reading did you get done? Tell me ALL about it.
