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 Reading
I participated for the first time in the Bout of Books Read-a-thon hosted by Amanda from On a Book Bender and Kelly from Reading the Paranormal and I was able to finish up 3 books. See my Goals and Updates post to read about everything I attempted and accomplished. I participated in Twitter chats and found LOTS of new-to-me book bloggers, with over 100 participants!
I was able to finish Interview with a Vampire (surprisinlgy loved it!) The Great Gatsby (knew I would and loved it!), I Just Want to Pee Alone (which was lol funny!).
I also posted my Classics Club Spin list, and found out this morning that #6 was chosen. That means I will be reading Robinson Crusoe by Daniel Defoe.
I finally posted my review of Wicked by Gregory Maguire and see why I empathized with the Wicked Witch.
This week I’m Reading
Girl with a Pearl Earring by Tracy Chevalier. Paperback for my in-person book club, a fictional account of the woman that inspired a painting. Only 30 pages left and enjoying it.
Listening to The Geography of Bliss: One Grump’s Search for the Happiest Places in the World on mp3 Audiobook. Very interesting analysis of different cultures and their religious and philosophical view on what makes them happy. Results are surprising and I look forward to sharing my thoughts with you.
On Kindle, reading Across Eternity by Aris Whittier which I received from the author. Read 4 chapters so far and interesting story about crossing time dimension, reminiscent of The Time Traveler’s Wife.
