It’s Monday, 30 September – What Are You Reading

It’s time for Book Journey’s fabulous weekly posting “It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?”

School reading is taking up so much of my time, so I have been doing a lot of reading – just not my pleasure reading to share you with all here. Since last I posted I did finish up Veronica Roth’s Divergent. I am currently reading The Interestings by Meg Wolitzer. I’m not too far in, but what I have read so far is already incredibly engaging and fantastically well-written. I also still have  & Sons by David Gilbert (from LibraryThing Early Readers) to work on.

How about you? How was your reading last week and what are you reading this week?

Here is my recent reading in review:

It’s Monday, 9 September – What Are You Reading?

It’s time for Book Journey’s fabulous weekly posting “It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?”

It’s the 9th of September and if you live on the East Coast, you can tell that fall is close at hand. I’m back at school and working on semester reading – but I did find some time for personal reading too. I finished up The Ghost Bride by Yangsze Choo and started Veronica Roth’s Divergent, and I am still working on & Sons by David Gilbert (from LibraryThing Early Readers). I am nearly finished with Divergent and if I find any more time for personal reading on my Kindle I am not sure what I will read next.

How about you? How was your reading last week and what are you reading this week?

It’s Monday, 2 September – What Are You Reading?

It’s time for Book Journey’s fabulous weekly posting “It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?”

So here we are, the unofficial last day of summer. I really don’t know where the summer has gone, and with it all the intentions I had for reading. As I saw summer winding down I took less time for reading to work on projects I wanted to get done this summer, so I am happy to say I got many things accomplished in that regard.

I think my pleasure/blog reading will slow down even more now that class starts on Wednesday. It will be a lot of reading and writing for class – but I will be sure to try and keep up here too, I have a feeling reading and writing for school will get me doing even more personal reading and writing.

I am nearly finished with Yangsze Choo’s The Ghost Bride and am working on & Sons by David Gilbert (from LibraryThing Early Readers). This week once I finish up The Ghost Bride I plan to start Divergent by Veronica Roth. When I posted on Facebook asking friends if they had any books to recommend, a few mentioned the Divergent series, then I saw that a movie series based on the books comes out this next Spring, so I want to read the books now.

How about you? What are you reading this week?

It’s Monday, 19 August – What Are You Reading?

It’s time for Book Journey’s fabulous weekly posting “It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?”

I’m not sure how this happened but I have apparently gone on a summer every two week posting program. But that stops now, All, I promise! I hope you are having a good summer – I definitely am.

I have been reading, but pleasure reading will probably slow-up even more soon since school starts in two weeks and I will have a lot of reading this semester. But, I am excited to start up another semester.

I just started up a book on Sunday on my Kindle, but I need to read some of the books I have received for review in paperback. Right now I am reading The Ghost Bride by Yangsze Choo and will also start & Sons by David Gilbert, which I received from  LibraryThing Early Readers.

So summer is almost over. How has your summer been? Have you met your reading goals? What do you hope to accomplish reading-wise before the summer ends?

It’s Monday, 15 July – What Are You Reading

It’s time for Book Journey’s fabulous weekly posting “It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?”

Not too bad a week over here. I finished up Daphne Kalotay’s Sight Reading (which I received for review) and got up a new review. I am still quite behind on my reading for the year so I really need to pick up my pace. Well now that I mention it, I am also behind on reviews, but there will be more coming your way soon.

This week ahead I will continue reading The Storyteller by Jodi Picoult, it has started to pick up to the point where I want to keep reading to the next chapter instead of going to bed. I will also start & Sons by David Gilbert  (which I got from Library Thing’s Early Reviewers).

It’s Monday, 24 June – What Are You Reading?

It’s time for Book Journey’s fabulous weekly posting “It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?”

Another good week . A book finished, a review up. I’m liking how summer is going here so far, although I would like to up my “finished book” count. I finished Alison Sweeney’s The Star Attraction (a little pre-review comment: what a great start to summer read). I am still working on Dead Ever After by Charlaine Harris, I also did some more reading of Hal Higdon’s Marathon because I will be starting my marathon training soon.

This week I will finish up Dead Ever After, start Daphne Kalotay’s Sight Reading and also continue reading The Snow Child by Eowyn Ivey which I began on my Kindle last night.

It’s Monday, 17 June – What Are You Reading?

It’s time for Book Journey’s fabulous weekly posting “It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?”

June is half-way over, how did this happen? Reading and posting is getting better – and I hope to keep it up and increase postings throughout the summer. I have to up my reading too – according to my Goodreads tracker, I am 7 books behind in reading 50 books this year. That’s a lot of catch-up, but I hope to get there this summer.

Last week was a good reading week, I started and finished The Lullaby of Polish Girls by Dagmara Dominczyk (which I  got as an ARC from LibraryThing Early Readers), started up Alison Sweeney’s The Star Attraction and also, in honor of True Blood’s return to HBO, started Dead Ever After, the final book in Charlaine Harris’ Sookie Stackhouse series. I didn’t like the previous one and had planned to swear off them, but this one is the end of the series, so I figured I could read one more to see how it all ends.

This week I plan to finish up Sookie and start Daphne Kalotay’s Sight Reading (which I received as an ARC), and also hopefully finish up The Star Attraction, which is really what I want to spend all my free reading time reading - it is definitely a fun, quintessential  summer read!

It’s Monday, 10 June – What Are You Reading

It’s time for Book Journey’s fabulous weekly posting “It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?”

While I am not starting out June really strong with reading or posting – I committed to finishing Dan Brown’s Inferno - and did, but not until after midnight last night (or should I say this morning). I have lots of books I could read, I am putting A Tale for the Time Being by Ruth Ozeki aside for now and will either read Daphne Kalotay’s Sight Reading (which I received as an ARC) or The Lullaby of Polish Girls by Dagmara Dominczyk (which I also got as an ARC). I will also be reading something new on my Kindle, maybe Alison Sweeney’s The Star Attraction.  And I need to review and read some of the marathon books I just got – I bought one and then my wonderful friend who is a runner brought me a stack this weekend. So I have lots on my reading agenda this week.

It’s time for Book Journey’s fabulous weekly posting “It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?”

June, wow – where did May go? It’s now time for beaches, pools, vacations and just general relaxation. Much like last week, I didn’t finish any books, but for the first time in awhile, I did get a new review on the site! Yay! I’m still actively reading all the same books (Inferno by Dan Brown and A Tale for the Time Being by Ruth Ozeki), I really need to get back on track for reading Born to Run because I just signed-up for my first marathon. A summer of training here I come!

It’s Monday, 15 April: What Are You Reading?

It’s time for Book Journey’s fabulous weekly posting “It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?”

If you follow my blog, you may know that in addition to being an avid reader one of the things in my life that takes my time from reading for fun and posting to you all as much as I would like — is running. I’m new to the sport, running my first 5K and then a half marathon last year, but I have now become a bit of an addict. I am proud to report I finished my second half marathon yesterday – the More Magazine/FItness Magazine Women’s Half Marathon. This is my 4th race I have completed this year with the New York Road Runners, and I hope to finish at least 5 more to get entry for the 2014 NYC Marathon. Now, as I sit here typing I want to send best wishes for an amazing day to all the runners up in Boston today.

Now on to reading. Yes I had work, and school and schoolwork – but I did at least finish up one personal read, Nell Freudenberger’s The Newlyweds. Then, instead of reading anything I already had going (which would have probably made more sense to finishing another book) I started Debbie Macomber’s new one Starting Now – which I got as an ARE following a Shelf Awareness posting. I have never read anything from Macomber before, and I am enjoying it. I haven’t read a lot, but it’s a nice book to read to wind down before bed. I do need to get back to reading Born to Run and Pukka’s Promise.

So all good things going on here. I am happy with my reading, but I do need to get some reviews up (soon, I promise).
