It's Monday! What are you reading?

It's Monday! What Are You Reading? Is a meme hosted by Shelia over at Book Journey. A weekly check in to see what you are currently reading and what is coming up. Head over to Shelia's blog to see what others are reading this week

What Am I Reading Now

Sense and Sensibility - Jane Austen. My attendance at the gym last week was minimal to say the least. I went once and it was a weights day so no reading on the treadmill for me. Hoping for a better week this week.

The Household Guide to Dying - Debra Adelaide. You know you are enjoying an audio book when you look for ways to stay in the car longer. This week is the last week of school and I know the chances of me listening to this over the holidays is minimal. I don't think I will finish it this week, but I wish I could - I'm really enjoying it.

So Much for That - Lionel Shriver I really enjoy Shriver's writing. I don't know if you can say you enjoy her books as they often deal with difficult subjects. This looks at a man and his wife's journey through the American medical system as she battles cancer with insurance that doesn't cover all it should. Engrossing.

What I read last week.

One finish this week, although I've yet to post a review.

 The Carnivorous Carnival - Lemony Snickett. The kids and I managed to knock this off this week. We won't start the next one until after the school holidays. (this week is the last week of term 1 - yay!) Hopefully I will get a review up this week.
The Freeing of Jonathon Mark - Nathan Gross
I actually finished this a couple of weeks ago but was able to post my review of it this week as part of a virtual tour for it. Not a bad book, worth checking out.

I gave up on...

Tiger Lily. A quarter of the way through the book and it still hadn't grabbed me so I returned it to the library. Maybe the next person who borrows it will have more luck.

So that was my week. How was yours?


  1. Good to hear you're enjoying The Household Guide to Dying, I'm adding it to my wishlist and I think I'd 'enjoy' So Much For That. School holidays cuts into reading time. Enjoy this week and happy reading :)

  2. I'd like to learn about So Much For That, it sounds interesting. I hope you enjoy your reads this week.
    Happy Reading!

  3. So Much For That is intriguing, Shriver is such a provocative novelist.

  4. These are new to me but happy reading!

    Check out what we are reading this week.

  5. I didn't like Tiger Lily either. :( I was disappointed. I have been thinking about reading Sense and Sensibility. :)
