It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? 4/23/18

23 Apr

Short recap for the week – I finished up A Possibility of Whales by Karen Rivers and promptly didn’t get to any other books! My mom and good friend are in town for a long weekend which has been absolutely wonderful. We’ve had beautiful weather and spent a lot of time outdoors which has lead to less time reading, but I wouldn’t change it for the world.

Right now, at my desk I’ve got:

  • Forever or a Long, Long Time by Caela Carter
  • The Art of the Swap by Kristine Asselin and Jen Malone
  • The Parker Inheritance by Varian Johnson

And my goal is to get to at least two of these this week!

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? 4/16/18

16 Apr

I’m slowly getting back into the groove! I’m really trying to do some higher quality workouts when I’m at the gym which means that I’m not riding a stationary bike and reading a book because although I’m working out, I know I should be doing better. So, I’m back to weight training and starting to get back into running over the past few weeks and as much as I hate it (and I really do), I’m beginning to feel stronger and healthier. Sadly, that means I don’t get a chance to read in the morning too often, so it’s left to the evening and weekends. But, I did get to finish The Serpent’s Secret by Sayantani Dasgupta and I also read The Prince and the Dressmaker by Jen Wang. I read a few short stories from Dreadful Young Ladies and Other Stories by Kelly Barnhill and then I put them aside. I never feel like I’m getting what I should out of short stories – I always feel like I’m in high school English class not quite “getting it” in terms of short stories. I try them every once in a while, but they’re not my favorite format. I’m going to finish up A Possibility of Whales by Karen Rivers today and hope to get a few more books read this week!

Right now, at my desk I’ve got:

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? 4/9/18

9 Apr

This week was so weird and I’m completely blaming the weather with snow flurries, rain, sun, clouds, warm weather and cold which led me feeling sleepy, a little cranky and not in the mood to read… I’m hoping to finish up The Serpent’s Secret by Sayantani Dasgupta today and over the weekend I also read Turn This Book Into a Beehive!: And 19 Other Experiments and Activities That Explore the Amazing World of Bees by Lynn Brunelle. I’m hoping to read:

  • Dreadful Young Ladies and Other Stories by Kelly Barnhill
  • A Possibility of Whales by Karen Rivers

And possibly trying to get to a few other titles as well. April’s been really busy as I’m posting three times a day as I’m working on my AtoZ Blogging Challenge and have some blog projects I’m trying to get a jump start on before the summer.
