It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

This week was a pretty good week for me.  I finished Push, by Sapphire, and City of Ember and People of Sparks, by Jeanne DuPrau.  I've started to have hope that I will actually get back on track for the 100+ Book Challenge that I so enthusiastically signed up for in January.  What is it about that dark, cold month that makes us want to take up new challenges (which we often put down again by February!)

Right now, I'm working on one of the cozy mysteries I won in the spring giveaway at Sharon's Garden of Book Reviews, called Town in the Blueberry Jam, by BB Haywood.  It's a fun, light read for the end of the school year.  I'm also reading the last book in the City of Ember series, The Diamond of Darkhold.  Is it wrong that I hope there are some kids on lunch detention today so I can sit at my desk and read during my lunch duty?

I'm also still making my way through Confessions of the Other Mother: Non-Biological Lesbian Moms Tell All.  I'm really enjoying the essays, but I can only get through a couple before I am ready for something else.  It's not a difficult read at all, but without a narrative holding the whole thing together my very tired, end-of-the-school-year-brain starts to wander after 20 pages or so.  So hopefully I'll finish that up this week as well.

Have a great week everyone!
