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. It's also a great way to discover new books and new blogs.

I know I'm late getting this posted. Wish I had some really exciting excuse – just getting back from that week in Tuscany or something similar. Alas, the only excuse I have is that I stayed up way too late last night, reading – so I've been running on empty all day. Must try to mend my ways.

So, anyway, here's how things stand:
  • Last week -

    Finished Think of a Number by John Verdon (review to come)
    Started All Is Forgotten, Nothing Is Lost by Lan Samantha Chang (should finish this one up tonight or tomorrow)
    Made a start at posting brief reviews of some of the books I read earlier this year (The Forgotten Garden by Kate Morton, and Damaged by Alex Kava)

  • This week -

    Besides the L.S. Chang book (see above), I'm going to try to get back to Anne Fortier's Juliet which I started earlier this month. Also hope to get a few more reviews finished and posted.

  • In the wings -

    I'm thinking either Peter Robinson's new Inspector Banks novel, Bad Boy, or Julia Stuart's The Tower, The Zoo, and The Tortoise, both of which I've had for a while and really need to do something about. Given my tendencies, I'll probably look at that bad boy first.


  1. I liked Think of A Number and Juliet is on my TBR list. Have a fantastic week reading. My Monday is here:

  2. It looks like you are a busy gal...I hope you get a chance to read everything that you're wanting too!

  3. I'm not familiar with any of those books but looks like you've been getting a lot read!

  4. It's funny how we know we need to get to a certain book but then we once again bypass it and choose something else!! LOL!!


  5. Think of a Number sounds good!

    Oh I am late too.... my plane just returned from Italy and my pasta order was getting cold.... oh, that's not right - I am just late getting around to everyone :D

  6. I love reading, but since blogging do not have as much time. I am reading just a little love book. Nothing by a major writer. Thanks for your visit and comment.

  7. Ah yes, know all about staying up too late reading,m I do it too often!

  8. Think of a Number was a pretty good read when I read it. Heard good things about The Forgotten Garden, but don't know any of your other books this week.

    Have a good week of reading.

  9. I don't know of many better excuses to be late, aside from "I was so captivated by this book I lost track of time entirely. Is it Tuesday already?"


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.
