It's Monday! What are you reading? 03/16/2015



Thanks to Sheila for hosting!

It's been another good great week. (Except for the case of the sniffles I came down with yesterday, cough cough. I think I'll live. Time will tell.)


Read:
#GangsterCats



5 stars, easy.


Currently Reading:

I'm dreading the end of this. It's going to hurt and I know it.

Upcoming:

I've promised Avery that I would read Mosquitoland next. It didn't take much arm twisting after her glowing review. 


Happy Monday! Have a fab week, everyone.

  1. I am just reading Station Eleven at the moment, about a third of the way through and enjoying how it's developing. Glad to see it was a 5 star read for you. Happy reading :)

  3. Aah - A Little Life...still getting over that one. And Station Eleven - you've got some awesome stuff going on! I added Mosquitoland to my TBR after your daughter's fantastic review!

    1. I'm not even half way through and I sense that I'll never get over this book! It's going to hurt, isn't it??

      Thanks so much, that means a lot to me. And to her :D

  5. Oh girl, I just saw where you are in A Little Life and I think you hit just about the worst of it, though the end is rough, too...you know, the whole thing's a mess.

    1. Oh I hit the hardest part (so far) today. Brutal. I'm terrified to keep reading but at the same time I don't want to stop!

  6. Oh! Station Eleven and A Little Life have both caught my eye. Neither are available in Australia yet (although I can order them in from o/s.... although when I do this the quality of the paper and/or binding is unknown until it turns up & I'm often disappointed...so to make a long story short, I'll just wait for Australian publication....& read your reviews in the meantime:-)

    1. Lol, I'd probably wait too but it'd be hard. I hope the wait isn't too long and that you thoroughly enjoy both books when you do get your hands on them!

    1. Oh man. It was SO good. I was pissed when I got to the end because I wanted MORE. ;)

  8. I've heard Mosquitoland is really good. I will be interested to know if you think there is a trigger scene in the book - and how intense you think it would be. It's making me shy away from it.

    1. I never really know what to say about those because I don't have any triggers (luckily!) but I will keep my eyes open and will definitely let you know what I think!

    1. I've been on a streak! I shouldn't even talk about it because I don't want to jinx myself, lol.

  10. It's more like what am I attempting to read. I've had three books going for a couple weeks and I'm not getting very far. It's not even a slump, cause I've been reading good stuff! My brain just feels fried, so I waste away surfing the Internet, then I got sick, and now I have research paper grading coming up. Ugh.

    1. Oh boo! It sounds like you need to find a way to get back into the groove! Maybe by hiring someone else to grade those papers? Lol ;)

      Delete
    2. I am up for any suggestions at this point! Lol! I've decided to look for a few specific things we really discussed while writing and let all else go. The grading will go much faster. It is their first try at research anyway.

  11. I hope you get over that cold soon! Avery's review of Mosquitoland was very good; I'm not surprised you're going to read it.

    1. Thanks :D I already feel better, maybe it was just a bad allergy attack? Who knows! ;)
