It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

Happy Monday Morning, faithful followers and fellow bloggers!  I hope that you all had a successful reading week...

...as I did not.  The start of summer break coincided with a language development class that is kicking my patootie, to put it politely.  I did manage to get two books completed this week.  The first, The Bodies Left Behind by Jeffery Deaver, is reviewed here.  The other, The Way Things Look to Me, by Roopa Farooki, I just finished last night-review to come soon.

There are so many things in my TBR pile that I am excited to get to, but I've started to feel a little guilty about the books that have been on my shelves for (literally) years that I still haven't read, so I went with one of those, a Karin Slaughter book I got from my mom about a year or so ago, called Undone.  What I really should do is rearrange my bookshelves-the oldest books are in the back behind all of the new ones I get.  That sounds like an excellent project for a rainy day like today...oh.wait...I have two more papers and a chapter to read before next week...stupid too-much-work-for-a-four-week-class class!  Ah well, my next class is Children's Literature-surely I'll get to read lots of great YA stuff for that class that can actually count towards my 100+ goal!  Have a great reading week everyone!

  1. I admire your determination in getting as much reading done as you did. Classes can be overwhelming especially summer classes when they pack so much into such a short time. I hope your next class does allow more time for reading.

  2. "kicking my patootie" - haha, great phrase, it made me laugh.
    Anyway, I hope you get to find more time for reading. Classes, sadly, come first, but I hope you can squeeze in some reading time.

  6. Hi Heather, thanks for stopping by my blog. You should see the stacks of books I have just for summer break. Mine started today too! No big classes for me this summer, just three days of workshops and then some curriculum writing. I hope you get to do some reading soon!
