It's Monday! What Are You Reading? 2/8

It's Monday! What Are You Reading? --From Picture Books to YA is a weekly meme started by Jen at Teach Mentor Texts and Kellee at Unleashing Readers. This is a chance for bloggers to recap their week of reading and share their plans for the next reading adventures they will take. Visit the host blogs for a list of great blogs participating in this meme and a whole bunch of titles to add to your to-read lists.

Books I Finished This Week: 

I really enjoyed the audiobook of Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear. The author, Elizabeth Gilbert, read the book and I loved the conversational style of the writing. She has many good points that she makes about being creative and honoring that part of who you are. I enjoyed many of the stories she tells in this book. I think I would like to get a hard copy of this book in order to refer back to some of the ideas. I highly recommend this book.

Books I am Currently Reading:

   This is such a long list that I feel like none of the books will ever be finished. I think I need to focus on one of them in order to finish it this week. I am still reading 1Q84, The Lotus Eaters, and 9 Steps to Financial Freedom. I also started listening to Bone Gap and reading Living Well, Spending Less.

 What's Next?

    I will focus on finishing The Lotus Eaters this week. I need to start reading Cutting for Stone since that is my book club's March selection. Otherwise, I will just focus on trying to finish some of the books I have started.

What are you reading this week? I would love to hear from you in the comments!


  1. Too many books, so little time, right? I have Big Magic, but still haven't started. I need to. So many of your are saying how well worth the read it is. Good luck on the other books, & hope you like Bone Gap.

  2. Bone Gap was a lovely read - my book club just had a discussion about it a few days back. :)

  3. I adored Bone Gap! It was one of my favorite YA titles last year.

  4. The best response from me to you, Andrea is that I hear you! Me, too about finding ways to manage time & do the things I really want to do.
