It's Monday! What are you reading this week? is a weekly event now hosted by One Persons Journey Through a World Of Books. It's helpful way to take a look at what you have read and what you want to read!
It's been about a month since I posted. Not much has changed since then. Still just chugging along with life, getting in a little reading here and there. I did take an extra two days off this week, and scrubbed down the whole house, boxed up some odds and ends that were just taking up space and cleaned cleaned cleaned! With all the rearranging and condensing, I no longer feel like my house is closing in on me with the additional baby stuff. So much nicer!!
During the past month I did read some pretty good books. I'm hoping to have the reviews up this week:
1. The Iron King - Julie Kagawa
2. Firespell - Chloe Neil
3. Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children - Ransom Riggs
I also had one DNF and that was Hereafter by Tara Hudson. I got within a hundred pages of finishing it, but was so completely bored with the story that I finally stopped wasting what little bit of time I did have. It just wasn't worth it in the end.
This week I'm hoping to relax, and we don't have much going on for the holiday weekend so hopefully I'll be able to get some reading in. I cleaned off my shelves (again) and found some real treasures that have been hidden on the shelves for quite some time.
Here's my week:
I read Angry Housewives Eating Bon Bons by this author a few years ago and absolutely loved it. I'm hoping that this one is just as good.
I listened to Arcadia Falls late last year by this author and thought the gothic setting, and the story told within a story to be really fun and interesting. I've read good things about this one so I'm excited to read something else by Goodman!
I love big, chunky, drama filled sagas and I'm pretty sure that this one fits the bill. I might have to break out a bottle of wine to enjoy with this one.
I've never read anything by this author, but the premise of this book looks really good. As a mother myself now, I think this one will hit even closer to home.
So that's what's on my reading plate this week. How bout yours?
