It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

I don't think I did a Monday "reading list" post last week. So this week's post is a little run-down of my last two weeks of reading. And I actually have been getting some reading done. Not exactly the books I planned to read, but that's OK.
  • Recent reads:

    The Anatomy of Ghosts, by Andrew Taylor. Hope to get a short review of this one up today or tomorrow. For now I'll just say I'd definitely give it a thumbs-up.

    Also read several books for the Young Readers Challenge: Smart Dog by Vivian Vande Velde, Homer Price by Robert McCloskey, and two Edward Eager books - Knight's Castle and The Time Garden. These were all great fun - no reviews yet, but I've got a couple underway.

  • Reading this week:

    Bad Boy, by Peter Robinson. An Inspector Banks book; this is my first experience with Robinson and Inspector Banks, and I'm enjoying it so far.

    Back When We Were Grownups, by Anne Tyler. Started this one earlier this month and got sidetracked by all those kiddie lit books. Hope to get back to it this week.

  • Next in line:

    Not certain about this yet, but I'm thinking maybe a cozy mystery. Just bought Amanda Lee's The Quick and the Thread, the first book in her Embroidery Mystery series, and it looks like fun. But I've got a few Agatha Christies on tap, too. So we'll see what develops.

  1. I'm so jealous! The Anatomy of Ghosts is one that I want to read!! Looking forward to your review on it - Here's my Mailbox: Coffee and a Book Chick -- Mailbox Monday...

  2. Good to hear that The Anatomy of Ghosts was a thumbs up...I hope you enjoy your weekly reads...

  3. I've been seeing The Anatomy of Ghosts of all over, looks like one I've got to check out.

  4. The Quick and the Thread, looks like one I would enjoy. I guess another one for my tbr list.

    Today I am reading a light fluffy chicklit book, Blame It on Paris, by Jennifer Greene. I am in a funky mood, and really don't feel like reading anything very deep or a mystery. I don't know if I will finish the book or not. It's kind of stupid. Very predictable.

  5. I really enjoyed The Anatomy of Ghosts and look forward to your review. Have a wonderful week reading. My Monday:

  6. The cover and title of The Anatomy of Ghosts are intriguing. Looking forward to your thoughts on it.

    Thanks for checking into my Monday reads:

  7. I don't know any of these books but the covers look interesting.

    Happy Reading!

  8. Went to Indigo but our cover for The Anatomy of Ghosts is less than appealing. Is this a UK version?? Let me know since I would like your cover version instead.

    Happy reading.

  9. I'm currently reading through Harlan Coben's books.

  10. I think I would like to try Anatomy of Ghosts too!

  11. I really liked The Anatomy of Ghosts - my review is written, but not up until later this week - definitely a nice classical-feel type of gothic suspense book!


Welcome and thanks for leaving me a comment. I love to hear from visitors.
