It’s Monday! What are you Reading? is hosted by Sheila at Book Journey.
What can I say? I haven’t found a lot of time to write blog entries. We are still trying to find a home for Clifford, the stray dude, that showed up a month ago. We have spent a lot of time keeping him separate from our dogs and working to socialize him a bit through walks. We introduced him to one of our resident pack members this evening and it went OK. Cliff is one young hyper dude, and he is still learning manners, so we are taking things very slowly.
I am currently reading:
The Best American Mystery Stories 2011 – I have read a few stories in this collection and enjoyed them. The book is out tomorrow. I fully intended to have it read before the publish date, but life got in the way.
Room by Emma Donoghue – I was invited to join a book club with Room as the inaugural book. Unfortunately, I just got it from the library yesterday and only have a week to read it. My track record lately isn’t looking so good. I have heard great things about this book, so I am happy to finally read it – book club or not.
Wicked Witch Murder by Leslie Meier – I was in the mood for a fluffy Halloween type book, and it was available as an e-book from the library. It’s been a quick read so far.
During the past two weeks I finished reading:
Curiosity Thrilled the Cat by Sofie Kelly – Magical cats seemed sort of hokey, but there was a librarian and the book received good reviews so I gave it a shot. I was pleasantly surprised! I plan to (eventually) read the second in the series, Sleight of Paw. (4 out of 5 stars)
I am holding off on any of the NetGalley books I have been approved for since I can’t seem to find the time to write a proper review. Hopefully by being noncommittal, I will actually finish some things.
Have a great week!
