It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

Last week was a strange week around here. Lots going on, but I was a little out of commission most of the time -- still taking pain meds after my recent dental adventures. So I did get some reading done, but not as much as I would have liked.
  • Currently Reading:

    Tassy Morgan's Bluff, by Jim Stinson. Started this last week. Need to finish it up and get it reviewed for Library Thing as quickly as possible. Which shouldn't be difficult if I can just stay awake -- I'm definitely enjoying it so far.


    A Visit from the Goon Squad, by Jennifer Egan. I was on a waiting list for this at our local public library, and my number came up this weekend. I only have it for two weeks (very popular book, as you can imagine), so I went ahead and moved it up to the top of the TBR stack. I'm liking it more than I expected to and fortunately it's a short read (a large chunk of the text consists of a power point presentation).


  • Next Up:

    I'm not making any plans at the moment, since I really want to get those two read and reviewed. But while I was at the library I also picked up Tana French's Faithful Place just because it looked so tempting. I haven't read any of her earlier "Dublin murder squad" books, but I might give this one a try anyway. So that's a definite possibility for "next up."

  2. I didn't do too well either. Recovery didn't get in the way just struggling with the same book I was reading last Monday. But...the end is finally in sight.

  3. Sorry to hear about your dental adventures. It seems people either love or hate A Visit From the Goon Squad.

  5. The only way I know to feel better is to enjoy some French. ;O) I'm also reading Egan's Goon Squad, right now and I'm enjoying it thoroughly. Hope you feel better soon!

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

Also, please note that while I appreciate the thought, I don't play the blog awards game. I think you all deserve awards! But you might think about becoming a follower of my blog -- that would really be the best award.
