It’s Monday! What are you Reading?

It’s Monday! What are you Reading? is hosted by Sheila at Book Journey.

I am currently reading:

Beaglemania by Linda O. Johnston

Beaglemania by Linda O. Johnston – I didn’t pick this one back up last week, but I should finish it this week.

Last week I finished reading:

Stories for Nighttime and Some for the Day by Ben Loory

Collecting Cooper by Paul Cleave – My review. This was a page turner about serial killers. Some scenes were pretty violent, and the characters were mentally unstable. I thought it was a pretty good read, but some readers may be sensitive to the violence. I picked up one of Cleave’s other novels, Blood Men, at the library yesterday. (4 out of 5)

Stories for Nighttime and Some for the Day by Ben Loory – This was a very fast read. Most of the stories are super short at 3-5 pages. I like short stories, but these all ended rather abruptly and left me wanting more. I suppose this is intentional on Loory’s part, but it often bothered me. Review to come.

Upcoming reads:

I’m not sure. I picked up six books at the library yesterday, even though I have a ton of other things to read. Why do I do this to myself?

Additional:

The Taken by Inger Ash Wolfe Mum's the Word by Kate Collins Son of Stitch 'n Bitch by Debbie Stoller

I bought The Taken from Kobo, where it was discounted and I used a 20% off coupon. I have the first in the series, The Calling, and figured that I will like it enough (when I finally read it) to continue with The Taken. I also purchased Mum’s the Word and Son of Stitch ‘n Bitch from the used bookstore. I rarely knit these days, but I still seem to collect knitting books. Good intentions and all that.

Happy reading, everyone!

    • I do read fiction, but mysteries are probably my favorite genre. Collecting Cooper got more and more violent towards the end, but I still liked it!

  1. I find it very hard not to pick up books from the library. Since I often have to return books, I have to tell myself that I’m only allowed one new book or so (but usually I end up with more). And at home I put them on the shelf with ALL the other books I have to read. Sigh!

    Have a good week!

    • That’s exactly how I feel. I go into the library with all my to-read books in mind and tell myself I should get maybe two books at most. The next thing I know, I have a pile. I can’t seem to stop myself.

    • Lissa, I also have the first two SnB books and think they are great! I just have a problem in that I rarely finish any knitting projects that I start. I did make the Big Bad Baby Blanket from the first book, but I gave it to the baby about a year after his birth. Oops! Thanks for stopping by!
