It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is now being hosted by Sheila at One Persons Journey Through a World of Books. If you want to let the world know what books you're going to be reading this week, head on over to her blog and leave your link.

I did a little better last week, and actually finished two books! Well, that's better than the one I finished the week before last. March has been a slow reading month for me, even though it seems to be going by at an alarmingly rapid rate. Unlike February which, though it's the shortest month of the year, seemed to drag on forever. Go figure.

But I digress (as usual). Here's how my reading is going this week.
  • Finished last week:
    The Brontes Went to Woolworths, by Rachel Ferguson. This was an Early Reviewer book from Library Thing, so I put everything else aside in order to get it read and reviewed. See my review here.
    Mrs. Malory and Any Man's Death, by Hazel Holt

  • Reviews posted last week:
    Just the one mentioned above.

  • Reading this week:
    Heresy, by S.J. Parris. One of the ARCs I'm trying to hurry through.
    A Stitch in Time, by Monica Ferris
    A Fair Maiden, by Joyce Carol Oates

  • Next up:
    The Swimming Pool, by Holly LeCraw

  • Shelved for now:
    The Family Man, by Elinor Lipman. Will try to get back to this one later in the year; it looks really good.

  • In the works (reviews to be finished):
    Contact, by Carl Sagan
    Homer & Langley, by E.L. Doctorow (read last year)
    The Lover, by Marguerite Duras (another holdover from last year)
    Mrs. Malory and Any Man's Death, by Hazel Holt
    People of the Book, by Geraldine Brooks
    Stardust, by Joseph Kanon (and yet another leftover from last year)
    The Uncommon Reader, by Alan Bennett (ditto)


  1. March has been a good reading month for me, too. So far, I've read 4 books and they've all been good!

    Happy Monday!

  2. You have an interesting reading list I hope you enjoy them!

    Have a great week..

  3. I can't wait to see what you think of The Heresy - it intrigues me.

  4. I haven't read any Joyce Carol Oates and keep being told by various folks I need to check her out.

    Here is my Monday:

  5. I'll be interested in your thoughts on A Fair Maiden. That's a book by JCO that I haven't read.

    My reading week:

  6. You have a great list here I am just looking over all your titles. Have a great week of reading :)

  7. I loved People of the Book and The Uncommon Reader. I want to read Heresy. I love Tudor history so I'd probably enjoy it. I hope you have a great reading week!

  8. Nice to see what you are reading. Hope you have another good reading week!

  9. I was intrigued by The Brontes Went to Woolworths title. I've seen The Swimming Pool on quite a few lists. Have a great reading week.

  10. Wow great reading list. I'll look forward to your review on "The Swimming Pool"...sounds interesting. I'm currently reading a book called "The Ultimate Boomer Business Launch Workbook". I've always wanted to start a business and with this to take me through it step-by-step, I finally feel like it can become a reality. Have a good week!

  11. I just read about The Swimming Pool, but I'm not sure where. It looks really good.

    My husband has been begging me to read People of the Book.

    I'm hoping to get more than one book read this week! Sheesh. I don't know what it was with me last week.

    Have a good one!


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.
