It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is 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.

Last week wasn't a great reading week for me: only managed to finish one book and didn't get any reviews written. My intentions were good, but I kept getting sidetracked by other stuff. So there's not much to report, but I hope to do better this week.
  • Finished last week:
    The Hypnotist, by M.J. Rose (review coming soon)

  • Reviews posted:
    None (must do better)

  • Reading this week:
    The Forgotten Garden, by Kate Morton (I've had this one going for a couple of months now, and I'm determined to finish it up this week.)

  • Next up (not completely sure, but these are possibilities):

    The Vanishing of Katharina Linden. Helen Grant (Won this in a Good Reads giveaway. This one has gotten some great reviews, so I'm putting it at the top of the list.)

    Damaged. Alex Kava (ARC - book is due out in July.)

    The Magicians. Lev Grossman (I picked this one up on my last library visit, and it needs to go back soon. I've glanced through it, but I'm not sure it's grabbing me enough to settle down with it.)

    The Sculptor, by Gregory Funaro (Another Good Reads win. Looks interesting.)

  • In the works:
    Reviews, reviews, and more reviews!


  1. Can't wait to see your review on "The Hypnotist". I have that one in my review pile.

  2. I too have The Magicians for a while now and simply can't get into it!

    Mondays: Mailbox/Whereabouts

  3. Looking forward to your review of The Hypnotist!

    My What are you reading? is here.

    Happy Monday. :)

  4. These all sound fascinating...Hope you enjoy your reading.

    Here's my Monday:

  5. I have the Forgotten Garden too - has been on my shelf a long time, unread. I really need to red that one!

  6. I read The Magicians a few months ago. It does drag a little in the middle of the book but I thought the ending was great. Stick with it!


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.
