It’s Monday! #10


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. Iā€™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.


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

This Week

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!

  1. I read a Maeve Binchy years ago.
    I have made some terrible choices at library recently and taken them back unfinished….maybe something to do with a toddler up and down and not wanting to wait for me to choose my books šŸ™‚
    enjoy ur week.

  2. Iron King is on my wish list. I hope you really enjoyed it. Bummer you sat the Maeve Binchy aside, I thought that one sounded interesting, yet I cant tolerate boring either. šŸ˜€

    Have an awesome week! šŸ˜€
