It’s Monday! is a weekly meme now hosted over at Book Date 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 feel like last week consisted of a lot of nights in and early bedtimes. We were all kind of sniffly due to the frequently changing weather, so it was a really low-key week for us. Jerelle spent the weekend dog sitting for her cousin, so Katie and I read, went out for lunch, and took turns gaming, which made for a pretty great Saturday.
I finally finished off House of Leaves. I really recommend if if you’re looking for something different and definitely a lot weird. Finishing felt like the same accomplishment as I felt when I read Infinite Jest. I also finished off Rain – it took longer than expected. I finished out the week by speeding through some lighter books, though none of the novels that I originally planned to read last week.

Looking Ahead: As always, several options. So this week, I think I’m just going to read whatever my heart desires. I have some good books lined up, and I’ll be happy to read any of them. I’m also considering taking a break from blogging during the month of December. It’s always so busy and full of events that I would love as few obligations as possible. What do you all think?
