It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

So now it's February.

January was pretty busy around here, so even though it was a nice, long month, I'm a little surprised that it's already over. But even with all our activities, I managed to get a few books read.

Finished in January:

Also one that I'm finishing up today (but will list it as a January read):

Those were all fairly short reads, and very entertaining — especially that last one. I read Alice Thomas Ellis's The Other Side of the Fire several years ago and loved it, too. I'm a real fan of her writing, but her books weren't easy to find until just recently.

Will try to get some short reviews up later in the week.

So far, this month I've started:

Jane Eyre, by Charlotte Brontë
(which will probably be a year-long project)


The Light After the War, by Anita Abriel

The Light After the War is due to be issued this month, by Atria Books. I'm reading an advance edition from NetGalley and hope to finish it up before its publication date. So I need to get back to the books!

Happy reading, 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. The Light After the War seems like a book I would enjoy!

  2. I am curious about Unexplained Laughter. In the Last Analysis looks good, too.

    Enjoy your week.

  3. The Light After the War looks interesting, and such a pretty cover! I love Jane Eyre, though it's been years since I last read it.

  4. I just received a copy of The Light After the War for review, I need to get to it next week.

    Wishing you a great reading week


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.
