Monday Reading Update

Another Monday, and another week gone by!  (And half the year gone, too!)  Time to take stock and do a little future planning.

Since my last Monday check-in, I've finished two books:

A Fearful Madness, by Julius Falconer

& Sons: A Novel, by David Gilbert

You can see my review of A Fearful Madness here (strange book).  I'll try to get a review of & Sons up later this week (another strange book -- but in a good way).

Also posted a review of a book I finished earlier this year:

Fer-de-Lance, by Rex Stout

Can't believe it took me so long to discover that one.

This week, I'm having dental work, so I'm not sure how much reading I'll be doing.  But I'm hoping to finish up Inferno by Dan Brown, and the classic children's book I started over the weekend:

Mistress Masham's Repose, by T.H. White

As usual, I'm way behind on my reading.  Probably won't even make it to fifty books this year, but I'm still aiming for that.

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. If it helps...I haven't made it to 50 books the past couple of years. It used to distress me, now I just know that the important part is the journey and the experience of the books I did get read. Mistress Masham's Repose sounds fascinating.

  2. I hope your dental work goes well!

  3. Oh, I don't envy you the dental work! Hope it goes well. And I've realized that, even though I've read more books each year, I'm not enjoying them more. Yes, I am broadening my reading list, and that's great...but I still miss the days of just picking up whatever book grabbed my attention and savoring it.


  4. I've just finished the first of Leigh Bardugo's novels and I think I'll move on to the sequel next. :-)

  5. Enjoy your week. I hope your dental work goes smoothly.

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.
