It's Monday, What Are You Reading?

This week was not nearly as productive as I would have liked, given that I was on spring break.  I blame it on switching from Direct TV to Comcast-we had to watch all of the backed up shows on our DVR before the big switch happened.

I finished Wolf Hall, by Hilary Mantel.  Check out my review here.  I also completed Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit, by Jeanette Winterson.  The review for that one is here.

I just, and I mean just, started The Lacuna by Barbara Kingsolver.  I love her books, so I am really looking forward to this one.  After that I think I am going to make a stack of the shortest books in my TBR pile and read them-I am way behind on my goal to read 100 this year.  Though if the goal starts to feel like homework, I may as well call myself done-that's not what reading for pleasure is supposed to be, after all.  Ironically, I'd probably get more reading done if I wasn't blogging!  My fellow bloggers are such interesting people with such good reviews I get sucked in every time!

Have a great reading week!

  3. I adore historical fiction and Wolf Hall has been sitting on my shelf for quite a while (along with a few others, unfortunately, that I haven't had time to read). I've heard good things about it and I'm glad you enjoyed it.

    Enjoy your reading week!

  4. I know what you mean about trying not to let challenges become like homework. I'm in the middle of one that I think I'm going to give up on. I'm finding myself skipping books I'd love to read because they don't fit in the challenge, and that's not good. Have a great week!

  6. I am currently reading Last Night in Montreal by Emily St. John Mandel.

    I also wanted to pass on awards handed to me by Rachel from Books are a garden.
