It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

Well, I think I'm getting back into the reading groove again, even though I only finished one book last week. Of course, I had a birthday last week too, and birthdays always slow me down (all that hand-wringing, hair-pulling, and searching for new wrinkles takes an enormous amount of time and energy) - so I'm still not performing at top efficiency. But the change of seasons is usually good inspiration for reading, and I'm hoping to do a little better in the coming weeks.

Or not. We'll see. Anyway, here's how things stand right now:
  • Last week -

    Read The Convent, by Panos Karnezis. This was an Early Reviewer book from Library Thing, and I've put up a short review over there. I'll be putting it on my blog a little closer to its release date (in the US) in November.

  • This week -

    I've got several books going right now: The Dark Half by Stephen King, and Cards on the Table by Agatha Christie (both for the RIP/V Challenge); also still reading Juliet by Anne Fortier. I just might be able to finish all those in a week's time, if I really make myself behave.

  • In the wings -

    Several ARCs I need to get to, including the 30th Anniversary edition of The Tree by John Fowles, and Moonlight Mile by Dennis Lehane. And, of course, lots of reviews to catch up on - I've been really bad about that lately. Must mend my ways.

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.


  1. Just finished reviewing The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and am on the 2nd book in the trilogy by Stieg Larsson. Everyone raves about the books, for good reason! Enjoy your week of reading!

  2. Juliet is still hanging out on my TBR list...given the number of challenges I'm working on, it's probably going to stay there for a bit. Happy Reading!

  3. I am undergoing a reading slump. You did well. Have another great reading week ahead!

    Here is my Mondays: Mailbox/Where Am I/Musings post.

  4. I cant wait to read The Moonlight Mile - I am a big Lehane fan!

  5. Looks like some really good reading ahead!


  6. I've only finished one book over the past THREE weeks -- I'm a slacker.
    Here is to getting back into the groove!

  7. I read Juliet this weekend and enjoyed it. It is a book you can't hurry through.

  8. Moonlight Mile should be a good one!

  9. I always enjoy seeing what others are reading. Thanks for the link to Moonlight Mile. It's going on my TBR list. I just started a fictional romance book called "Soul Mate" by Richard Weaver. It's one of those books you can't seem to put down. Here's to a great week of reading books you can't put down!

  10. I've got my eye on Moonlight Mile...hope you enjoy all your books.

    I have a birthday next month, so I guess I should store up my energy for hair-pulling, etc. lol

    Here's my post:

  11. Ah, John Fowles. What a good author! But do not tempt me with any more books for the TBR pile!!

  12. Belated Birthday wishes!! I so want to read Moonlight Mile!! Hope you enjoy all your books!

  13. I'm glad you posted about The Dark Half I never seen it before and it sounds like a good one!

    Thanks for sharing it....I hope you enjoy your week!
