It's Monday! What Are You Reading?












What I Finished Last Week

Nothing.

Oh dear. 
Nothing?  I finished nothing last week?
 Odd. Disconcerting.



 
What I'm Reading Now

Bloom by Kelle Hampton


What I Reviewed Last Week


Still: Notes on a Mid-Faith Crisis
Still: Notes on a Mid-Faith Crisis

When I Was a Child I Read Books
When I Was a Child I Read Books

And here's a treat:
I received a little audio clip
from the Macmillan audiobook, When I Was a Child,
read by the author herself:

What I Might Read Next


Tomorrow is the start of my Book Un-Birthday Month,
so I hope to read any un-birthday books that
will arrive in the mail for me.

Of course, I'm always open to suggestions!


What are you reading today?!



It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is where we share what we read this past week, what we hope to read this week…. and anything in between!  This is a great way to plan out your reading week and see what others are currently reading as well… you never know where that next “must read” book will come from!

I love being a part of this and I hope you do too! As part of this weekly meme Book Journey loves to encourage you all to go and visit the others participating in this meme. Book Journey offers a weekly contest for those who visit 10 or more of the Monday Meme participants and leave a comment telling BJ how many you visited.

    1. Yes, but I must find a book soon that I can't stop reading...not one that I'm forcing myself to read.

  2. We all have bad weeks, so don't feel to bad about not finishing a book! Hope you have a better week this week! Happy Reading!

  3. Great list! Still looks interesting. I dont know what a book "Un-Birthday" is... am I out of the loop? :)

    Enjoy you day no matter what 0 I am reading The Most Dangerous Thing - Lippman

  4. When I was a child I read books - that book looks really interesting. I don't think Ive ever read a book or essays but you've made me want to look into this one a bit more. Thanks for that :-)

    1. It's smart and thoughtful...maybe a little over my head, at times, but I like that.

    2. The title alone is intriguing to me because that sums up my adult reading life in a sentence. I've always identified myself as a reader, but then I looked up one day and realized I wasn't reading anything but blogs and magazines! That is what made me start my book blog. I may have to check that book out.

  5. Our Un-birthday Book Group has been around for seven or eight years, I think. It is a Yahoo group that came out of a book list called On the Porch Swing. I love it. Especially when my Un-birthday Month is next!

  6. Looking forward to your thoughts on Bloom, a book I plan to read as well. Have a great reading week!

  7. We all have weeks like that. It's a horrible feeling but sometimes you need a break to catch up on everything else. I read your review on the Marilynne Robinson book. It sounds good but will take your advice and maybe pick it up when I have more time to spend on it.

    You have me curious, what's an Un-Birthday?

  8. I've added Still to my tbr list because of you. I hope you're enjoying Bloom. Right now I'm reading Learned Optimism by Seligman for a research project and Game of Thrones. Have a great week.

  10. I love Marilynne Robinson's books...so I want that one! I saw Bloom in the bookstore last week and was SO tempted...but I kind of went crazy on Amazon, so I stopped myself. Enjoy your week!

    Here's MY MONDAY MEMES POST

  12. I try to read books on the Dymocks list of best 101 Books of all Time (it's online)- you can pretty much guarantee a good read from those books!

  13. I hope this week is a finishing week for you! ;o)

  14. I wouldn't worry to much, some times life gets in the way of our reading but I have found books wait pretty patiently unless of course you have a review deadline, :)

    I hope this week is better!!

  15. If it wasn't for audiobooks there would be times when I finished nothing too!

    Unbirthday? Like the Mad Hatter's tea party type birthday? LOL

    1. Maybe I need to get a few audiobooks to help my numbers!

    2. Give it a try. It's nice having someone read to me while I'm doing boring things like cleaning the house or cooking. And if I listen to something humorous I don't need to concentrate too much either!

  16. Bloom and Still have very different but both very interesting covers. I'm definitely a Cover Girl. :) I hope you enjoy your reads this week!

  17. I didn't know Kelle came out with a book on her baby girl! I read the story a few years ago and it is such an amazing tear jerker. I'll need to read her book now. :)

  18. Not heard of any of those books but I do hope you enjoy them :) Thanks for stopping by my blog :)

  19. I don't think it would be for everyone, but Rotters by Daniel Kraus is kind of blowing me away. The writing is fantastic. It is about a boy learning the trade of graverobbing from his father, though, so if you're not into that you probably wouldn't like it.

  20. I have weeks where I finish nothing. Disconcerting is exactly the word.
