It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

Not only is it Monday, but it's the last day of 2018, too! What better day to sit back and take a look at what we'll all be reading this week to end the old year and start the new.

And just between us, I could not be happier to see the end of 2018 — not the worst year I've seen, but not much about it I really want to remember, either. So I'm definitely ready for a shiny new year and lots of great books to read.

This week, though, I'm actually going to be finishing up one of the books I started this month....

Educated: A Memoir, by Tara Westover (Random House, February 2018)

Since I have more than half the book to go, I'm counting it as my first read of 2019. Then if I actually get that finished (and that's very iffy — I have some dental adventures coming up this week), I'll be moving on to an ARC of a book that's coming out next month....

The Water Tower Club, by B.K. Mayo (Fir Valley Press, January 2019)

And that should be enough to keep me occupied for a week. Especially this week, with dentist visits to get through, and Christmas decorations to take down and store away. (Yes, we always leave everything up until after the New Year.) But we've got some nasty winter weather predicted for later in the week — terrible for getting out and about, but great for curling up with a good book.

So, happy reading and a Happy New Year, everyone!

It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is 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 loved Educated - it's hard to believe it's a true story. Happy New Year!

  2. I really loved Educated...hope you do, too. I'll be glad to see the last of 2018, too. Enjoy the New Year, and here are MY WEEKLY UPDATES

  3. I've been seeing "Educated" a lot lately! I'm reading a history of Google ("In the Plex") and then "She Has Her Mother's Laugh", a book on heredity.

  4. I think we are finished with nasty weather for a while. It's snowing lightly now but supposed to warm up to the 30s later in the week. Come see my week here. Happy reading and happy New Year!

  5. I really want to read Educated. I have a hold on the audio book at the library. Hopefully it will come in soon. See what I read this month Girl Who Reads


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.
