It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

Monday again. A new week and a brand new year, too. Clean slate time. I spent most of last week finishing up a few books and writing wrap-ups for all my 2010 challenges. I think that's all done now, so I can start my reading for 2011 without worrying about any loose ends. So here's how things look:
  • Finished last week:

    The Weird Sisters. Eleanor Brown. This was an Early Reviewer book from Library Thing, and I need to get a review up very soon (like, today).

    The Thirty-Nine Steps. John Buchan
    Operation Terror. Murray Leinster

    I'll be posting brief reviews of those last two, probably tomorrow. Not a lot to say. I read them mainly because they'd been on my TBR list for years and I could get free downloads from Amazon.

  • Reviews posted:
    None. I'll be posting a few later this week. No, really - I promise. That's one of my resolutions for the new year.

  • Reading this week:

    The Anatomy of Ghosts. Andrew Taylor

    Back When We Were Grownups. Anne Tyler. Reading for the What's In a Name Challenge.

    The Killings at Badger's Drift. Caroline Graham. Reading for the 1st in a Series Challenge - it's Graham's first Inspector Barnaby mystery novel. This was on my list for last year, but I never managed to get around to it. So I guess that does sort of qualify as a "loose end."

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. Good ones! I did not receive a single book, like the week prior to this. A book-famine or what?

    You did good reading. I could manage to read only one book.

    Wish you and your family a very Happy New Year. May 2011 be filled with reading!

    Here is my Monday: Mailbox/What Are You Reading? post!

  2. I added Weird sisters to my Wishlist.

    Here is mine if interested.

  3. Love the cover of The Weird Sister and am very curious. I will come back for your review!

  4. I am new to Anne Tyler so I will be checking that title out.

  5. I'm so jealous that you've dipped into Anne Tyler not once but twice in the last few months! I love her quirky characters & down-to-earth style. The Accidental Tourist is wonderful if you haven't read it.

  6. I'll be watching for your review of The Weird Sisters.

  7. The Anatomy of Ghosts sounds very interesting I hope you enjoy your week!

  8. Oooh! The Anatomy of Ghosts sounds really good! My TBR list just got longer! Happy reading this week.

    here's my Monday:

  9. I didn't get as much reading last week. I have been sick with a cold and I was traveling.

  10. We read Back When we were Grownups for book group two years had mixed reviews...will be interested to read your thoughts.
    Here is my MOnday:

  11. I heard The Weird Sisters was pretty good... I look forward to your review!


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.
