It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

It's been a few weeks since I posted a Monday reading list. Must admit I was in something of a reading slump all during March. But spring always makes me want to read more - new beginnings and all that - and I think I'm starting to get back on track here in April.

  • In the last few weeks, I've only finished one book, Henrietta Sees It Through by Joyce Dennys. Most of my time has been spent sorting through the junk in our closets and storage spaces (we're trying to get the condo in shape to sell a little later this year), and starting a brand new blog.

  • This week, I'm reading The Girl Who Would Speak for the Dead by Paul Elwork. I'm not very far along, but so far I'm enjoying it. Nice and spooky, but not terribly frightening up to now.

  • Haven't decided yet what I'll read next. But I've got several ARCs I should have read already, including Prophecy by S.J. Parris, and Iron House by John Hart. So I have much to choose from. Too much, probably - I think that might be one of my biggest problems!

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. Here's looking forward to a great reading week, Joy.


  2. Sounds like you have some good books to choose from here. RE: your moving story on your other blog: One time, when our boys were young, a charity group mistakenly picked up a sack of clean cloth diapers from our door step (thinking we were donating them). We called the company and put a trace on them and we got a call 3 years later that they found the cloth diapers. At that point, we were all done with the diaper scene and we donated them.

  3. Henrietta Sees it Through sounds like a fun read (despite the fact it takes place during WWII).
    Don't worry about not reading or reviewing enough, the most important thing is to enjoy reading, right?

  4. I can't wait to see what you think of The Girl Who Would Speak for the Dead - it looks so good!

  5. I like the sound of Henrietta Sees It Through...I'll be watching for your review.

    Thanks for visiting my blog.

  6. It is always hard to choose what to read next, I went through 3 books before I settled on one, must be the weather.;o)

  7. Happy Happy Joy Joy! Sorry... it was in my head. I was kind of "slumpy" in March too.... just too busy in my case and eyes too tired to read once I did finally hit home base. Glad to see you back :)

  8. Congrats on your new blog. Keeping two blogs going is hard work, at least, for me it is. But as long as it's fun, that's the main thing.

  9. The Girl Who Speaks for the Dead looks like a good one. Enjoy!

    Here's my Monday:

  10. Organizing and cleaning can be fun...especially when you see the end product!!

    Enjoy your read this week!! I have a copy of that one and look forward to my turn with it!

  11. Spring Break's over. I mostly read books for my project. Come see what I finished.

  12. All those books sound interesting especially The Girl Who Would speak for the Dead. I love scary books!
    Happy Reading :0)


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.
