Well I have started my new job! I work for the church I attend: Church of Christ the King, Brighton. It is six days a week, so I haven’t managed much blogging this week – only one review, and only one book finished. That hasn’t stopped me starting other books however!

Now, down to business:

Books Read:

  • The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman

Reviews:

Currently Reading:

  • Rooms by James L. Rubert
  • GodStories by Andrew Wilson – theology
  • Sisters Red by Jackson Pearce – library book
  • The Life by J. John – theology
  • The Cost of Discipleship by Dietrich Bonhoeffer – audiobook, theology
  • Spiritual Disciples for the Christian Life by Donald S. Whitney – theology
  • Wintersmith by Terry Pratchett – audiobook
  • Dear John by Nicholas Sparks – library book

This Week:

Monday and Wednesday morning are my times off, so I will try and do loads of reading! Hopefully I will get some reviews written too. I just want to get some books finished this week – that is my aim! Do leave a comment so I can visit you!

This weekly meme is hosted by Sheila at Bookjourney. I handed in my dissertation on Tuesday, yay! Now we wait until November to see if I have passed my Masters degree. It has been a mixed week; I loved having my husband at home and spending time with him but we did get some really sad family news. I only managed to get two books finished, however I did reach my target of 100 books read in 2010!

Well this week I start my new job! I’ll be working for the church I attend: Church of Christ the King, Brighton, for a year. It will be six days a week, so I’m going from not working to working full time in one big leap! It will be a shock to the system I think! It does mean that reading and blogging will be limited but it won’t stop me completely.

Now, down to business:

Books Read:

  • The Crepe Makers’ Bond by Julie Crabtree
  • Cast of Characters by Max Lucado

Reviews:

Put Down:

  • The Truth About Love by Josephine Hart

Currently Reading:

  • Rooms by James L. Rubart – this is a review book and I am really enjoying it.
  • The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman – this is a library book and won’t take me long to finish it
  • Godstories by Andrew Wilson – I have been reading this slowly and taking notes; it is a super Christian book
  • Thud! by Terry Pratchett – this is an audiobook, so I only get a chance to listen when the husband isn’t around!
  • The Boy With the Cuckoo-Clock Heart by Mathias Malzieu – this book is good, it is just taking longer to read than I thought it would

Someone asked last week how I manage to read so much at once. I don’t know, I just love having more than one book on the go, so I always have something to suit my mood!

This Week:

As ever, to get books finished! Check out my IMM to see what I took out to of the library. Do leave a comment!

This weekly meme is hosted by Sheila at Bookjourney. For those of you who are interested, my dissertation is finished! Blog activity has been low this week but hopefully that will change now I’m free! I did get a little bit of reading done however:

Books Read:

  • Wildthorn by Jane Eagland
  • Descending by Catherine Chisnell
  • Iron Daughter by Julie Kagawa

Reviews:

Currently Reading:

Most of them from last week still!

  • God Stories by Andrew Wilson – I’m reading through this slowly, it is really good
  • The Truth About Love by Josephine Hart – this is not a fast read, and so far more about death than love but it is OK
  • Cast of Characters by Max Lucado – I haven’t dipped into this one much but the few chapters I have read have been good
  • The Crepe Makers’ Bond by Julie Crabtree – YA book, fast read, easy and good!
  • The Boy With the Cuckoo-Clock Heart by Mathias Malzieu – another one I haven’t dipped into much, but so far so good. The descriptions are amazing!

Feel free to follow me on Goodreads to see my updates on these books 🙂 My profile is HERE.

This Week:

My husband is off so hopefully spending some quality time with him, but I’m hoping to reach my target of 100 books read this year during this week – I’m up to 98! I think I’ll finish The Crepe Makers’ Bond this week. Who knows what else! We’ll just see what happens!

This weekly meme is hosted by Sheila at Bookjourney. I’ve read more this week than last, but it was mostly finishing books I had already started. I’m up to 13000-ish words on my dissertation, which has had my focus this week. It would be awesome if it is finished by next Monday, but we’ll see. The result of this work is lack of blog activity, but hopefully that will change in a few weeks!

Books Read:

Dissertation reading:

  • Mary Julia Young: A Summer at Brighton
  • H. M. Moriarty: Brighton in an Uproar

Fun Reading:

  • The Iron King by Julie Kagawa
  • Winter’s Passage by Julie Kagawa
  • Therapy by Sebastian Fitzek
  • Goodnight, Beautiful by Dorothy Koomson

Three of those books I had already started, and Winter’s Passage is less than 70 pages so its not as impressive as it looks!

Put Aside:

  • Bel Canto by Ann Patchett
  • The Dream House byRachel Hore
  • Whitethorn Woods by Maeve Binchy

The first two are library books that I just don’t have time to read – I took all my library books back as I wasn’t reading them and felt bad preventing others from having them, and the Binchy novel I found a bit random and boring.

Reviews:

Currently Reading:

  • A Question of Answers by Margaret Henderson Smith (cover not shown)
  • God Stories by Andrew Wilson
  • The Truth About Love by Josephine Hart
  • Cast of Characters by Max Lucado
  • Wildthorn by Jane Eagland
  • The Boy With the Cuckoo-Clock Heart by Mathias Malzieu

As I’m still working on my dissertation that is my main focus but if I can get any of these books finished (or any other read!) I will be pleased. What are you reading? Do check out my In My Mailbox to see what new books I’ve got!

This weekly meme is hosted by Sheila at Bookjourney. I haven’t managed a lot this week, as expected. I read Sarah Dessen’ s That Summer because it needs to go back to the library. I’m up to 8000-ish words of my dissertation, out of 20,000. I’m hoping to have doubled that by next Monday, so reading and blogging might be little again.

  • James S. Gray: Brighton Between the Wars

I would like to finish these, and also read:

  • Randolph’s One Bedroom by Andrew Oberg (a review book)
