It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

We went to Parents' Weekend at the oldest child's college this weekend. (I still can't believe I have a child old enough to be in college!) Since this weekend was also cold and rainy thanks to Hurricane Joaquin, we spent a lot of time just sitting around with the boy. That meant a lot of reading. I didn't take my computer though so no reviewing. And yes, the to be reviewed list is even scarier than before. I do consider sitting and reading next to a person to be quality time but somehow, sitting and poking at a computer beside someone is not. Don't ask my rationale. That's just the way it is inside my brain. I asked on Facebook for people to help me decide what to review next and I'll ask you all to weigh in too. Help me settle on a few books so I can start working my way through this appalling list! This meme is hosted by Sheila at Book Journey.

Books I completed this past week are:

Minerva by M.C. Beaton
What Is Visible by Kimberly Elkins
Katherine Carlyle by Rupert Thomson
Two Dogs and a Parrot by Joan Chittister
