It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

"Girl in Hammock," Theodore Robinson (1894)
So far this summer I haven't gotten a great deal of reading done. Real life interfering a little too much, as it tends to do sometimes.

This week, I'll be getting back to a couple of books I started in June:

The Girls, by Emma Cline


Vinegar Girl, by Anne Tyler

Sounds like it's gonna be a very girly week.

Last week, I didn't finish any books, but I did post a few reviews of books I read earlier in the year. These are mostly very brief — just a few words to help me remember what I read and what I thought about it:

Also posted a (very late) wrap-up post for the Once Upon a Time X reading challenge that ended back on June 21st (see — I said it was late).

So, how's your summer reading going so far?

It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is now hosted by Kathryn at Book Date. If you want to let the world know what 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. I've heard really good things about "The Girls." I hope you enjoy it!

  2. The Girls sounds right up my alley.

  3. Both of the books you are reading have been showing up on a lot of blogs lately. I hope you enjoy them both. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

  4. I enjoyed The Girls...and read it during June, the month I themed "girls month," during which I read The Girls in the Garden and All the Missing Girls.

    I have Vinegar Girl...and want to read it really soon! Thanks for sharing and enjoy.


  5. I am reading "Vinegar Girl" right now and it is very enjoyable. I would say it is "light" reading and is turning out to be a pretty quick read.


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.
