It's Monday...What Are You Reading? (12.12.11)

It’s Monday What Are you Reading , hosted by Sheila, is the perfect way for me to begin my week and allows me to focus on what needs to be read and to see what I have or have not accomplished the previous week. I also enjoy discovering new books by visiting other participants blogs.

The last two weeks have gone by in a blur and I'm sorry to say that I haven't accomplished much reading-wise or review-wise. Part of it was due to my work schedule being completely hectic, but the other part is that I am just about 3 months pregnant and have been so tired that I often fall asleep when I sit to read. Hopefully my energy level will be back to normal soon. At least work will be quiet until after the new year.

Books Completed in the last 2 weeks:

  • Inseparable by Dora Heldt (review book)
  • Knit the Season by Kate Jacobs (library audio book)
Reading Now:
  • Secrets of the Tudor Court: By Royal Decree by Kate Emerson (mine)
  • Still Alice by Lisa Genova (library audio book)
  • Shanghai Girls by Lisa See (mine)
  • The Kitchen Daughter by Jael McHenry (review book)
Reviews completed in the  past two weeks

What about you?  What does your reading week look like this week?  Whatever it is, happy reading and have a good week!


  1. I loved reading books to my little ones. Have you heard about Angels in the water? I just thought you might like to read it while you are pregnant. Congratulations on your little one and happy Christmas!

  2. Great list Kristin! I read Shanghai Girls at the end of last year and loved it. I also just picked up Still Alice as an early birthday present to myself. I read Left Neglected earlier in the year and have heard that Still Alice is even better so I'm super excited!

  3. @ Jackie: I haven't heard of Angels in the Water - will have to check it out.

    @ Deb: Thanks...I find that doing this each week really helps keep me on track, especially with getting my reviews done!

    @ Bonnie: I loved Left Neglected which is why I picked up Still Alice. I'm looking forward to reading Shanghai Girls - I really like Lisa See's writing style.

  4. I am curious how Knit The Season is on audio. I cant seem to get enough audio in the house :)

  5. I haven't even heard of most of the books you've listed. LOL. I think I better go check some of them. :0
