It's Monday, What Are You Reading?

Monday, May 03, 2010

YAY!  I actually finished some books.  What a relief to actually have something to say this Monday.

Books finished this week:

The Lacuna, by Barbara Kingsolver
Night, by Elie Wiesel

What I'm reading right now:

The Divide, by Nicholas Evans
Confessions of the Other Mother: Non-biological Lesbian Moms Tell All!, edited by Harlyn Aizley

Reviews on the first two coming soon!  Hope everyone has a great reading week!


  1. How did you like Night? I will be interested in reading your review. Hope you have a great week.

  2. I'll be looking forward to your review of The Lacuna. I've loved everything I've read of Kingsolver's except for Poisonwood Bible, and I disliked that one so much I'm a little afraid of her books now. I know most people loved that one the most, but I just didn't click with it. Enjoy your books this week!

  3. I loved Night, it's so moving! I hope you have a fantastic week of read. Also, I have an award for you on my blog.

  4. Yay for a good reading week! I look forward to reading your reviews. I hope this week is great too!

  5. Awesome reading week - I still need to read a Kingsolver book but plan to remedy that soon.

    Here is my Monday:

  6. You had a great reading week with those two books. I loved both of them. I look forward to any thoughts you have on them. Lacuna was my first Kingsolver experience and I want to read more. I've read about 20 plus books by Wiesel since reading Night, and loved them all. Happy reading.

  7. Ooh how was Night? That is one I think sounds good!

  8. I'll have reviews of The Lacuna and Night up soon...I liked them both, though saying you "like" Night feels a little strange given the subject matter. It was heartwrenching!

    Jen-I also did not like Poisonwood Bible, I think that the religious/missionary theme made me a little twitchy, as religious fundamentalism always does. I've loved all of her other books, though, so you're safe with Prodigal Summer and this latest one.

  9. Hi...thanks for visiting my blog and I loved your analogy - abrupt endings similar to students writing "the end." That used to be one of my biggest pet peeves in teaching writing! Love your blog and am now a follower!

    Have a great week!
