It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

December 8, 2013

Right now, I am currently reading The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt on my Kindle.

I am also attempting to read some of the books I started within the past year but never finished, because I was distracted by certain events.

I was away from book blogging for awhile because the past few months have indeed been very busy. Someone I knew was getting married so I attended an engagement party/"surprise" bridal shower /and posh wedding.

I also knew two different people who died on the same day. So there were wakes/viewings/and funerals to attend.

My husband and I spent some time in Pennsylvania visiting my step-daughter and her husband.

I also have been writing a book that I hope to upload on Kindle during the next year, and I am writing essays and querying magazine article ideas.

I am frantically writing some book reviews.

Of course, I am also preparing for Christmas.

I visited a book sale yesterday and these are some of the books I scored (you can see them in the top photo):

  • The Dovekeepers by Alice Hoffman
  • Consequences by Penelope Lively
  • The Man in the White Sharkskin Suit by Lucette Lagnado
  • Winter Garden by Kristin Hannah
  • Winter Bloom by Tara Heavey
  • The Paris Wife by Paula McLain

I'm looking forward to reading all of them!

This post is in response to It's Monday! What Are You Reading? a book meme posted on Sheila's Book Journey.

  1. Sounds like you have been busy and had a lot going on. Sorry to hear about those who have passed away. I hope you have a good week.

  2. You have been busy haven't you. It's good that you're still finding time for your reading.

    Book sales always kill me. I never have the time to read all the books i bring in. =)

    1. I always find time for reading! And I do love book sales. But I figure that even if I don't read them all, they are so inexpensive that I didn't go broke buying them.

  3. The Goldfinch looks intriguing. You sure got a nice haul of books too! Enjoy reading this week.

    Take a look at what I'm reading this week.

    1. The Goldfinch is intriguing. I love my nice haul of books!

  4. Wow! You were really busy! Hope you get some good reads in this week!

    Here's my Monday Wrapup

    1. I'm sick again so I'm enjoying reading some books. Oh, and watching movies.

  5. I bought the Goldfinch book when Amazon had it on sale.
    I love what you picked up at the sale, too.

    1. I bought it on sale, too. Amazon rocks!

      I can't wait to read my book sale books!

  6. The Goldfinch is popular right now. I want to read Winter Gloom, well all by Kristin H actually. Sorry for your losses, sounds like a sweet sour few months.

    1. The Goldfinch is the "in" book right now, I guess.

  7. Oh my goodness, you've had a lot going on!

    I love, love, love Alice Hoffman. Can't wait to hear your thoughts on the Dovekeepers! (I haven't read it yet)

    Indeed. Nelson Mandela's death... just :( He was an inspiration.

    1. I can't wait to read The Dovekeepers!

      Mandela was indeed an inspiration!

  8. The Dovekeepers is a fantastic book! I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
