It’s Monday, What are you Reading? is a meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journey to recap what I finished reading last week, what I am currently reading and other book-related news. Bloggers link up their lists and it’s a great way to get new book recommendations, discuss our thoughts on the books we’ve read and meet new bloggers. It’s a great start to the week.
Last week I Finished
It was a busy week at work and home so didn’t get much blogging or reading done. I did participate in the Ultimate Blog Party Google+ hangout. I have never done a hangout before and it was really neat watching the presenters in real time, unfortunately, the comment feed stopped working so we could not interact with them after awhile. They gave away some cool prizes though and met some new bloggers and a Blogging Basics 101, a great blogging resource for new and intermediate bloggers.
I also announced my First Blogaversary and Amazon Gift Card Giveaway! I’m so excited to giveaway the gift card as a way to say thanks for celebrating my year in books, recipes and small victories to new and old readers. Make sure to enter my Rafflecopter giveaway below!
This Week I’m Reading
Wicked by Gregory Maguire. Yes, I am STILL reading Wicked. This book has me on a roller-coaster of interest for sure, between the parts that drag and then the parts where I can’t put it down. I can’t add much without giving away the story and really wondering how this book will end. I have about 150 pages to go, let’s hope I can knock it out this week!
Little Women by Louisa May Alcott on audiobook for my Classics Club, 2013 Back to the Classics Reading Challenge children’s literature selection and April Monthly Keyword Reading Challenge. I am really enjoying this story, the tight-knit relationship between the sisters despite their little cat fights and their story of growing up in a simpler time. Lots of memorable quotes in this book I’d like to keep to remind me of the important lessons in life as a woman and mother. I have a feeling it will be one of my favorites.
