It's Monday and I read three books this week!

Hello again! How is everyone doing? It's been a busy and productive week around the literary house. I've been checking lots of things off of my to-do list, which is a lovely feeling. The weekend was busy, but good. We had a picnic after church (I made a pie) and then we relaxed at home. We finished Sunday night in the best way possible, by watching the Tony Awards of course!

This week I read Waking Gods, which is the sequel to Sleeping Giants. I enjoyed it just as much as the first book and am now impatiently waiting for the last book in the trilogy to come out. I also read Assimilate or Go Home by D.L. Mayfield and Midnight at the Bright Ideas Bookstore by Matthew Sullivan.

On the blog this week, I wrote a review of A Bridge Across the Ocean and I wrote a post about Jami Attenberg's new book All Grown Up and how the protagonist is being held up as the long-awaited single female protagonist.

Now I'm reading Marilynne Robinson's Home

 

What are you reading this week?

  1. I read Home a few years ago. The move is really happening. We have temporary housing squared away and most of our home library in storage now. Come see what I'm reading this week.

  5. I read Home a while ago...and Housekeeping, too, and I think another one in the Gilead series.

    I have All Grown Up, but have been putting off the read.

    Enjoy your week, and here are MY WEEKLY UPDATES

  6. It sounds like you had a lovely week; I hope the new ones proves to be much the same. I keep meaning to reading the Sleeping Giants trilogy, even though a little out of my comfort zone. Happy reading!
