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 was sick on Monday, so that threw off the rest of my week as I tried to make up the missed time at work. It felt like the longest week ever!! But the weekend was great! A friend came to visit, which is always fun! She’s with us until tomorrow, and her visits always broaden our horizons. Like today she led us in yoga before work, which I liked more than I expected. Also over the weekend, my church formally announced our new lead pastor, so we are amped up for this new year even more!

Speaking of the longest week ever, can you say longest reading challenge ever?? Katie and I started The Deathly Hallows yesterday, but it will probably still be several days before we finish. Because I’ve been reading Harry Potter so intently, I haven’t really had the time or motivation to read much else. So once again, it was a week of comics and graphic novels, although I did halfheartedly start a couple of other books.

  1. I really have to do some research on graphic novels/comics. Everyone seems to be loving them right now. While my library has a teeny tiny section, I know I could request a bunch from other branches. I just don’t know where to start!


    • See, I was never really interested in either graphic novels or superheroes. Then I played the Batman: Arkham Asylum video game, and fell in love with his whole universe, especially the villains. So I had to know more, which led to reading some of the Batman graphic novels (I used a collection of “Best of Batman” lists). Then I fell down the comics rabbit hole.


  2. I’m glad to hear that you are feeling better! We’ve had sickness in the house for over a week and I stayed healthy, until now. I think it finally caught up with me. Sigh…


  3. Wow, Kitty Hawk looks awesome. But I’m still not sure if I can start reading graphic novels on top of everything else!
