It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?


It’s Monday! is a weekly meme hosted over at Book Journey that allows bloggers to post a sort of wrap-up of the past week while also looking to the week ahead. Without further ado…

Last Week: I had a day off work! That usually doesn’t happen because I have a 40 hours per week type job where I work Monday through Friday and every other Saturday. I spent my day serving at my church, apartment hunting, reading, and playing video games. It was glorious! I wish I had more free days to spend like that! In the world of books, I’m so angry because I only got through 2 books last week. And one was a graphic novel. Gah! Oh, and I finished up East of Eden also, but I don’t really count that because I was only reading 2 chapters a day to finish out the challenge. I also posted an author interview with Ursula Jones, who completed The Islands of Chaldea after the passing of her sister, Diana Wynne Jones.

Through the Woods Emma East of Eden by John Steinbeck

Through the Woods – Emily Carroll

Emma – Jane Austen

East of Eden – John Steinbeck


Currently Reading: Conversion – Katherine Howe

Looking Ahead: Because Emma took forever, I’m now in a bit of a pinch. I have three library books all due back within the next 4 or so days, so I’m hoping to get through all three. Plus, I want to read Isla and the Happily Ever After to finish out the Isla is Coming read-along. So many books, so little time. Here’s what I am aiming for this week.

Noggin Three (Article 5, #3) Isla and the Happily Ever After (Anna and the French Kiss, #3)

Noggin – John Corey Whaley

Three (Article 5 #3) – Kristen Simmons

Isla and the Happily Ever After (Anna and the French Kiss #3) – Stephanie Perkins


Hopefully I’ll get to read better (and more) stuff this week than last. What are you reading, friends?

  1. Oh my goodness, I understand your library situation! I have three books all due in the next week or so. Yikes!

    How did you like Emma? It’s on my classics club list.


    • I’m trying to get them read. For some reason, I hate renewing. It’s not fair to whoever else may want to read it. Or I’m just a perfectionist. That’s probably it.

      I actually didn’t enjoy Emma as much as I’d hoped. I loved Clueless though!
