It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

Computer is still messing with my life and kiddie activities took over all my reading time this week. Pah! So I got about nothing finished on the reading and very little on the reviewing front. Better luck next week. This meme is hosted by Sheila at One Person's Journey Through a World of Books.

Books I completed this week are:

The 19th Wife by David Ebershoff

Bookmarks are still living in the middle of:

The Far Pavilions by M.M. Kaye
Our Mutual Friend by Charles Dickens
Great Lakes Nature by Mary Blocksma (this is going to take me all year as I read her year's entries on the corresponding days of this year)
Venetia Kelly's Traveling Show by Frank Delaney
Nana by Emile Zola
The Sweet By and By by Todd Johnson

Reviews posted this week:

Alexandra, Gone by Anna McPartlin
How Clarissa Burden Learned to Fly by Connie May Fowler
Sweater Quest by Adrienne Martini
Into the Tangle of Friendship by Beth Kephart
The Blue Yonder by Alex Shearer

Books still needing to have reviews written (as opposed to the ones that are simply awaiting posting):

The Gravedigger's Cottage by Chris Lynch
A Rather Lovely Inheritance by C.A. Belmond
Dancing in Red Shoes Will Kill You by Dorrian Cirrone
The Gin Closet by Leslie Jamison
The 19th Wife by David Ebershoff

Giveaway on the blog this week:

  2. It's terrible when life get in the way of our reading :) Have A GREAT WEEK This Week READING!!


  3. I saw Venetia Kelly's Traveling Show at the bookstore, but I don't know if I even looked to see what it was about. Look forward to your review :)

  4. The Great Blue Yonder sounds really good. I'm a huge fan of YA novels, but haven't read that one yet. Thanks for the review!

  5. Ohhh - I love Connie May Fowler. "When Women Had Wings" is one of my favorite books.

    Here's my reads for the week:

I have had to disable the anonymous comment option to cut down on the spam and I apologize to those of you for whom this makes commenting a chore. I hope you'll still opt to leave me your thoughts. I love to hear what you think, especially so I know I'm not just whistling into the wind here at my computer.
