It's Monday! What are you reading?


What are you reading Monday  is hosted by Shelia over at Book Journey. Head over and check out what others are reading!

It's been a couple of weeks since I have participated in this. Apparently a new job can do that to you!

What I have finished this week

Two books this week.

What's Happening to our Boys by Maggie Hamilton

Celebrity Detox - Rosie O'Donnell (review to come)

What I am reading now

We Need to Talk about Kevin - Lionel Shriver

From Goodreads:

The gripping international bestseller about motherhood gone awry

Eva never really wanted to be a mother - and certainly not the mother of the unlovable boy who murdered seven of his fellow high school students, a cafeteria worker, and a much-adored teacher who tried to befriend him, all two days before his sixteenth birthday. Now, two years later, it is time for her to come to terms with marriage, career, family, parenthood, and Kevin's horrific rampage in a series of startlingly direct correspondences with her estranged husband, Franklyn. Uneasy with the sacrifices and social demotion of motherhood from the start, Eva fears that her alarming dislike for her own son may be responsible for driving him so nihilistically off the rails.
What's next?
Hmmm, not sure. The too read list does not seem to be whittling down at all - this job at the library is not helping!! I am excited to finally be reading Kevin though.

So what are you reading? Leave me a link!
