It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? a place to meet up and share what you have been, and are about to be reading over the week. It’s a great post to organise yourself. It’s an opportunity to visit and comment and er… add to your groaning TBR pile! So welcome in everyone. This meme started on J Kaye’s blog and then was hosted by Sheila from Book Journey. Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn at The Book Date. Jen Vincent, Teach Mentor Texts, and Kellee of Unleashing Readers decided to give It’s Monday! a kidlit focus. If you read and review books in children’s literature – picture books, chapter books, middle grade novels, young adult novels or anything in those genres – join them.
WHAT I READ LAST WEEK (Since WWW)
I really enjoyed each of these! You can check out my reviews if you’re interested: Serpent & Dove, Wild at Heart, and Lady Midnight.
WHAT I’M READING NOW
I’m not loving Summer of ’69, but I’m continuing to read it with my group. I’m enjoying Lord of Shadows. The Screwtape Letters is a group read, but also a reread for me. I always enjoy it when I’m reading it, but it’s not one that begs me to pick it up once I put it down. All the Stars and Teeth is still just okay.
And as for Shadow of the Fox, I’m honestly just a little confused. I feel like I’m reading the beginning of Tale of Two Cities when I’m trying to figure out how all the bits fit together. And unfortunately with my first read of Tale of Two Cities, I hated the book until I got to the end and saw how it all worked together. I just don’t have the patience for that right now. Have any of you read it? Will it all start to fit together and make sense soon, or should I just put it down for now? I do know that I’ll eventually want to finish it.
WHAT I’M READING NEXT
I have possibly even picked up My Favorite Half-Night Stand by the time you’re reading this… The others are all potential reads.
