It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is hosted by J.Kaye at J.Kaye's Book Blog! Each week we share what's going on in our world of books and blogging!

Books I read last week:

Between the Assassinations by Aravind Adiga: This book is a series of short stories all set in Kittur, India. It didn't grab me like his first book, The White Tiger did, but I liked it all the same!

Beautiful People by Wendy Holden: After reading a dissapointing Wendy Holden novel, I was happy that this one was much more to my taste.

Permission Slips by Sherri Shepherd (review to come): I loved this book- it was so positive and life-affirming! This is definitely a book that I'll come back to when I need a pick-me-up!

Books I hope to read this week:

Suddenly by Bonnie Burnard: I didn't get a chance to start this one last week, so it will be the first one I start this week!

After You by Julie Buxbaum: I've heard great things about this book in the blogosphere, so I picked this one up at the library. Library books take priority!

Ruby's Diary by Ruby Gettinger: If I have time this week, I'll pick this one up, although I'm not entirely sure that this will be my third choice for the week. Usually I read my books as the mood strikes me, so I'll have to see.

That's the plan for me for this week; which books are you planning on reading this week?


  1. I'll have to look for Permission Slips -- I could use a pick me up book about now!

  2. I absolutely LOVED Julie Buxbaum's After You -- such a moving, fantastic book. Hope you enjoy!

  3. I'm reading "How to deal with your spirited child" in hopes that it helps me with my Diva! :-) I'm also reading "Bastard Husband - A Love Story," a book by a fellow blogger writer of mine. And I'm also working on my own story :-) (yeah, I like to stay busy!)

  4. Oh wow, I just got in Permission Slips!
