It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is hosted by Sheila at Book Journey. 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.

Well, after all the record-breaking heat here on the east coast last week, I guess we can definitely say summer is here to stay. And all that hot weather has made me really lazy when it comes to reading and blogging. Not getting much done. Only finished one book last week, and didn't get any reviews posted. But I did get all the rest of my summer clothing out of storage, so I don't feel too absolutely slothful (storage problems – one of the nagging issues of apartment living).

So, here's how things stack up this week:
  • Finished last week:
    Noah's Compass, by Anne Tyler (I really enjoyed this one, and hope to get my review up today or tomorrow.)

  • Reviews posted:
    None (that's none)

  • Reading this week:
    The Good Psychologist, by Noam Shpancer (This is an Early Reviewer book from Library Thing. A little strange, but I'm enjoying it so far.)

    The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie, by Alan Bradley (I'm loving this one. Started it last week, and intend to get back to it as soon as I get the Shpancer book out of the way.)

  • Next up:
    Haven't decided yet. We'll be heading to the beach at the end of the week, and I usually read whodunits on vacation. So I'm thinking maybe another Mrs. Murphy mystery (by Rita Mae Brown), or something with a seaside theme. Any suggestions?


  1. I loved Noah's Compass, too; there's something about Anne Tyler's books that tug at my heartstrings. Those quirky characters, I guess!

    I was wondering about The Good Psychologist...I also saw it on Library Thing.

    My Monday is here:

  2. I'm interested to see your review for Noah's Compass. I'm a fan of the cover. :) Hope you enjoy this week's reads. They look great! I haven't won anything from Librarything yet, so I'm glad to know that people DO win. Ha! It looks a bit...psychological. xD

    Check out my post, and feel free to enter my contest.

  3. Isn't Flavia great? Have a wonderful week of reading.

  4. I LOVED Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie. The next one in the series is even better and a third is on the way. I'm happy you're enjoying it!

  5. Can't wait to read your review of Noah's compass!!

  6. I still have not read Anne Tyler, but it sounds like Noah's Compass is good, I'll have to add it to my list.

  7. I want to read Noah;s Compass - I think it sounds so good!

  8. The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie sounds like a wonderful title!

  9. I do love Anne Tyler! I am interested in the other two books, too.

  10. I really enjoyed Sweetness too! I'm looking forward to your Noah's Compass review since I enjoyed the book too.

  11. Sweetness is in my pile too. Can't wait to see what you think of it!


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