Another week, another It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? I like being able to catch up on books and I must say Sheila’s link up over at Book Journey is a good place to catch up on what books are out there. I love seeing and hearing about what other people are reading. In fact if I’m out in public, a waiting room or a restaurant and someone is reading, I will crane my neck into ridiculous positions in order to see what they’re reading. I’m nosy that way! This is sort of the same thing without the crazy neck positions!
So here we go!
I must say that I’ve been a bit sluggish this week in reading and in life. That happens sometimes after reading a few books in a row that I really enjoy. In fact, I started two books which I then stopped. I may go back to them, but sometimes a book needs to grab my attention for me to continue.
I did enjoy one of my Goodwill finds this week.
A Cup of Tea by Amy Ephron. It felt to me as if I was reading an Edith Wharton novel. It gave a good flavor of the time period, 1917. I actually wished that it was longer and that the story was more fleshed out. I was enjoying getting to know the characters when the book ended. As is with so many of my thrifting finds, this is a book I might never have found if it wasn’t sitting on the shelf a Goodwill.
I’m currently reading Brooklyn by Colm Toibin.
I have been a bit distracted for the last few days and it’s taken me a bit of work to get into this, but I’m enjoying it. I hope to have it finished today.
I think my next will be the continuation of the Chronicles of Narnia, The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe.
I read the first installment, The Magician’s Nephew at the beginning of January and I really enjoyed it. This is my next step.
I was excited to hear from Amazon that my copy of On Leave by my friend, R E Thorpe has shipped and is on it’s way!
That will be my next. I’m sure it will be quite a change after Narnia, but that’s the good part about reading…So many different worlds to visit.
Be sure to stop by Book Journey and see what everyone is reading, leave some comments and pick up a few ideas. That’s where I’m heading now…Join me!
Happy Monday! What are you reading?! :-)
