It’s Monday! #12


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


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!

  1. Congrats on the new job. I have yet to read Winter Passage and Iron Daughter, but I lent the series to my daughter and she raved about it. Looks like you have a great line up this week. Hope you enjoy them all.

  2. Nice line-up of books. I really liked The Graveyard Book. Enjoy your week, good luck with your new job and hope you still manage to squeeze in a few books ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. I’m glad you liked the Iron Daughter. I have both books on my shelf, but no time to read them. I also tend to have several books on the go at once, and pick up whichever strikes my fancy at that time. People think I’m crazy, but I’ve always read that way. My mom does it too, so I probably picked up the habit from her.

    Have a great reading week!

  4. I’m looking forward to your review on The Boy With the Cuckoo-Clock Heart, I’ve been wanting to read that for ages! ๐Ÿ™‚ Have a great week, and I hope you enjoy your new job!

  5. That’s awesome about your Master’s and the new job!! enjoy life as it happens and have a great week!
