It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

Hard to believe the year is more than half over, isn't it? Or maybe that's just me. Summer is in full swing already, and generally I get a lot of reading done during the summer. But that hasn't been true this year.

It's been over a month since I actually finished a book, but I've started quite a few. I've got my current reading list divided up into several categories.

(1) Books I'm more than halfway through:

Anything Is Possible, by Elizabeth Strout

The Fifth Petal, by Brunonia Barry

(2) Books I've got started, but haven't yet reached that halfway point in:

Tell Me How This Ends Well,
by David Samuel Levinson

(3) Books I've had on my TBR list for this spring/summer, that I haven't actually started yet:

Grief Cottage, by Gail Godwin

Heartbreak Hotel, by Jonathan Kellerman

The Heirs, by Susan Rieger

How to Be Human, by Paula Cocozza

And then there are those "maybe" books I've been downloading onto my Kindle because I just can't pass up a cheap/free book from Amazon. And those books I bought at the spring sale over at our local public library. And those upcoming late summer/early autumn ARCs I really do need to get to pretty soon.

So you can see I'm not lacking for ideas about what to read next. I just need to get back to reading something right now. But first, I'm gonna visit a few other blogs and see what everyone else is reading. Maybe that'll give me the nudge I need.

It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is now hosted by Kathryn at Book Date. If you want to let the world know what you're going to be reading this week, head on over to her blog and leave your link. It's also a great way to discover new books and new blogs.


  1. Wha ha ha! Oh I share your boat, I also have a couple of have-started-but-not-finished-yet books at the moment. You do have a few really good and interesting reads listed here - sure you will finish them all eventually!

    Happy reading and here's my current reads:

  2. Wow, you've got a lot of books going at once. I hope you have a great week!

  3. I am currently reading "The Charm Bracelet" by Melissa Hill. It is going a little slower because I am reading an actual book (Kindle reading is MUCH faster) and because you sort of have to pay close attention. After this one, however, I think I am going to start "The Fifth Petal". I have had it for a while but I have a stack and it is somewhere in the stack. The stack was in order for a while but not so much anymore.

  4. I love Jonathan Kellerman's books and have Heartbreak Hotel...but it has slipped through the cracks in the wake of my NetGalley review books.

    The Gail Godwin and Joan Didion books look tempting...and I was caught up in the cute title Our Spoons Came from Woolworths. Thanks for sharing...and enjoy.


  5. Summer is my prime reading time. I have been enjoying lots of good books now that the chaos of moving and unpacking is (mostly) done. Come see my week here. Have a great week!

  6. Wow! That's a lot of books you go this week! I hope you enjoy them all!

  7. Our Spoons Came from Woolworth sounds interesting. Stage one of the move is complete. We're out of our house and now we're trying to get it ready to put on the market. Come see what I'm reading.


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.
