It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?

Right now, I am currently reading The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt on my Kindle.

I am also attempting to read some of the books I started within the past year but never finished, because I was distracted by certain events.

I was away from book blogging for awhile because the past few months have indeed been very busy. Someone I knew was getting married so I attended an engagement party/“surprise” bridal shower /and posh wedding.

I also knew two different people who died on the same day. So there were wakes/viewings/and funerals to attend.

My husband and I spent some time in Pennsylvania visiting my step-daughter and her husband.

I also have been writing a book that I hope to upload on Kindle during the next year, and I am writing essays and querying magazine article ideas.

I am frantically writing some book reviews.

Of course, I am also preparing for Christmas.

I visited a book sale yesterday and these are some of the books I scored (you can see them in the top photo):

  • The Dovekeepers by Alice Hoffman
  • Consequences by Penelope Lively
  • The Man in the White Sharkskin Suit by Lucette Lagnado
  • Winter Garden by Kristin Hannah
  • Winter Bloom by Tara Heavey
  • The Paris Wife by Paula McLain

I’m looking forward to reading all of them!

  1. You have been busy haven't you. It's good that you're still finding time for your reading.

    Book sales always kill me. I never have the time to read all the books i bring in. =)

  2. The Goldfinch is popular right now. I want to read Winter Gloom, well all by Kristin H actually. Sorry for your losses, sounds like a sweet sour few months.

  3. Oh my goodness, you've had a lot going on!

    I love, love, love Alice Hoffman. Can't wait to hear your thoughts on the Dovekeepers! (I haven't read it yet)

    Indeed. Nelson Mandela's death… just 🙁 He was an inspiration.
