It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

I have been crazy busy lately. All of my volunteer positions seem to need 100% of my time all at the same time this time of year. And heaven knows there's only one 100% to give so a lot of things have had to be cobbled together on a smaller percentage and my reading and reviewing has fallen by the wayside. Add in the fact that it is still back to school season (multiple curriculum nights for example) and you have a decent clue why my time is stretched so thin. I didn't even manage to post this last week, not that there was much at all to post, honestly. So this is actually two weeks' worth. This meme is hosted by Sheila at Book Journey.

Books I completed this past week are:

Swimming in the Moon by Pamela Schoenewaldt
Paperboy by Tony Macaulay
I Am Venus by Barbara Mujica
Silver by Andrew Motion
Painted Hands by Jennifer Zobair
Faking It by Cora Carmack

Bookmarks are still living in the middle of:

Better Than Fiction edited by Don George
The Eight by Katherine Neville
Little Island by Katharine Britton

Reviews posted this week:

  3. I read Just Like Fate by Cat Patrick & Suzanne Young. It was a pleasant book that makes you stop and think. I'm currently reading A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin and The Giver by Lois Lowry. The latter is for banned books week. I hope you enjoy your week of reading.

  4. Hope you don't get too stressed. So many good titles to check out. Thanks.

I love to hear what you think, especially so I know I'm not just whistling into the wind here at my computer.
