It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is hosted by Sheila @ Book Journey.

Happy Monday my friends! 

Here's what I've been up to this week:

Books Reviewed:

Tigers in Red Weather by Liza Klaussman

The Trajectory of Dreams by Nicole Wolverton

Brain on Fire: My Month of Madness by Susannah Cahalan

Crazy Enough by Storm Large

Read:

Lost At Sea by Jon Ronson

The Round House by Louise Erdrich

Love Anthony by Lisa Genova

I tried How To Be a Woman by Caitlin Moran. Nope. It was a DNF for this reader. I'm no prude but it read as if it was meant to be shocking and dirty. It came off crass. I wanted to like it. Ah well!

I may review the above books, or maybe not! I can do what I want, neener neener boo boo!

I joined in the Let's Talk meme again. The question this week was about time management. (Insert snorty laughter here)

Also, I shared some of what I'm feeling, wishing & anticipating.

I hope you had a fab and bookish week...here's to another!

  1. Love Anthony looks like a good one, and I already had it on my TBR. Which by the way keeps getting longer and longer..... :)

    I'm about to check out that Let's Talk Meme-not to join-but to learn how to be organized!!!

    1. I enjoy Lisa Genova's novels. Love Anthony wasn't my favorite but it was still a decent read :)

      You'll learn NOTHING about being organized from this girl, lol!

  2. The Round House sounds like a book I would love. I will have to check it out.

    I read How to be a Woman - I really liked it, but you are right, it was very vulgar! I was kind of shocked at first. Lol. And I thought it became kind of boring near the end too, oddly enough.

    1. I bet you would like The Round House, you'll have to let me know if you pick it up!

      How to be a Woman..sigh. I really did want to like it. I'd heard it compared to Tina Fey's Bossy Pants. Not even close.

  3. Still Alice was brilliant so just for that fact, Love Anthony is going on my wish list!
    Hope you review it LOL if you feel like it of course ;)

    1. Still Alice was my very favorite of hers. That book has stuck with me. You can tell she does a ton of research, love that!

    1. Doesn't it sound interesting?? I can't wait to start it! Thanks for visiting!

  7. I'm still thinking on the Moran. Wanted to read it when it was released but the reviews (on blogs at least, am trusting those much more) have made me hesitate. Her column in The Times is often good, but there's an element there that sometimes is a bit much. Same as the other commenters, I'm looking forward to what you thought of The Richest Woman.

    1. I recently read Crazy Enough by Storm Large. That was full of sex, drugs, rock & roll..and more sex. That didn't perturb me in the least because it felt honest and true. The Moran, on the other hand..I don't know. It seemed shocking for the sake of being shocking. It was like she tried to put every dirty word ever printed into one sentence. Blah.

  8. The Richest Woman in America catches my eye. Have a great week in books!

  10. Brain on Fire sounds so scary but intriguing too. It gives you hope to know that discoveries and cures continue to be found in medical science.:)

    1. It was definitely scary! But kinda miraculous too :) She was so lucky that she had great doctors.

  14. I have heard a lot about Brain on Fire in the media of late but still haven't read it. Your review sold me but is sounds terrifying! I hope you have a wonderful week.

  15. Looks like you had a good week :) Hope you enjoy Flesh...I thought about getting it for review and I don't think I could handle it, doesn't quite seem like my type of book.

    1. I did have a good week! I hope I like it too...I was wary of accepting it. After a bit of research I thought I'd give it a try :)

  16. The Richest Woman books looks interesting.

  17. The Richest Woman sounds like a fascinating read. Can I admit that I have never heard of Hetty Green? I feel like reading non-fiction fills in all of these gaps in my knowledge!

    1. That is EXACTLY why I love nonfiction Lindsey!
