It's Monday, What Are You Reading?

Happy Monday!  I hope that everyone had a wonderful, fulfilling reading week.  I had so much goodness this week-I finished The Divide, by Nicholas Evans.  I also got blog posts written for The Lacuna, by Barbara Kingsolver, and Night, by Elie Wiesel.

I got a wonderful package from Sharon at Sharon's Garden of Book Reviews.  I won her Cozy Mystery Giveaway, and got a box full of books from her this weekend.  Every one is by a new-to-me author, and I am very excited for summer to get here so I can dive into that box head first!

Right now I am doing something I almost never do-reading more than one book at once.  I'm reading Push, by Sapphire.  I can tell you right now that the review is going to be hard to write.  It's a gripping story, but not easy to read at all.  I'm also reading City of Embers, a YA selection that my friend has been telling me to read for a while now.  And I'm still working on the anthology of motherhood essays entitled Confessions of the Other Mother, about non-biological lesbian moms.  Pretty interesting how diverse their experiences are.

 

Have a great reading week, everyone!

  3. Night sounds good! And isn't Sharon wonderful? I won from her once last fall and the package was so beautiful. :)

  4. I'll be reading Push for my YA lit class this summer. I saw the movie based on the book, so I'm nervous about getting through that one.

    I LOVE your blog design! Beautiful!

    Here's what I'm reading this week:

  5. Push is an amazing book. I own The City of Ember, so I'll be reading it in the near future.
