It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

So, May 22nd. This month is zipping by even faster than April did. Isn't it? Or maybe I just feel that way because I sort of lost a week. Pulled a muscle in my shoulder last week and spent much of the time sort of snoozing because of the pain meds. Couldn't really concentrate on anything for very long. Consequently didn't get much reading done.

I'm still trying to finish up a couple of books I started several weeks ago:

Anything Is Possible, by Elizabeth Strout


The Fifth Petal, by Brunonia Barry

I really do intend to get those done this week. And after that, I have several possibilities, but I'm thinking seriously of this from my TBR list:

Haven't read much Neil Gaiman, and this one would fit in with the springtime fantasy-reading project I've got going.

So that's the plan. Of course, I'm not real good at sticking to plans. But that's OK. The main idea is to have fun reading, right? Right. Hope you all have a great, fun week of reading!

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 like Neil Gaimen because he writes in so many different styles for so many different ages and interests. I don't automatically love all of his books but I do appreciate that he doesn't limit himself. I listened to the audio of Ocean at the End of the Lane, which he read himself. It's a magnificent audio.

    My husband is home. My daughter had two pieces in her school's art show. And we got new cement poured at the bottom of our stoop. Come see what I'm reading.

  2. Anything Is Possible is one I'm considering...even though I didn't love Lucy Barton, I enjoyed it.

    Thanks for sharing...and enjoy. Here are MY WEEKLY UPDATES

  3. I was actually talking about Ocean at the End of the Lane with someone this weekend. I love Gaiman, and I enjoyed that one, but it's one of my least favorites of his (still a good book though!). Hope you enjoy it! If you like him, try The Graveyard Book - it's YA, but I loved it.

  4. I'm bogged down in a couple of review books right now. Neither one is grabbing my attention. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

  5. You need to be careful and not hurt yourself!


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.
