It's Monday! What are you reading? (Aug 13, 2012)

What are you reading on Mondays is hosted by Sheila at One Person's Journey - You can hook up with the Mr. Linky there with your own post - but be sure and let me know what you are reading too! 

Both my kids and myself will be going back to school/work in the next 10 days.  My middle daughter starts her senior year of high school on Thursday, I go back to work at my son's school a week from today and he starts back to school the Wednesday after that.  I am hoping once we are all back on a regular schedule again that my "books read but needing to be reviewed" will start to disappear rather than grow!  I'll revisit this comment at the end of September and we can see whether or not that has happened!

Currently reading this week: 

Reading for Various read-a-longs in August: (something new I am trying):
Snow Flower and the Secret Fan by Lisa See (on audio - in the middle of disc 2 - Love it!)
The Cider House Rules by John Irving - (Just starting Chapter 3 and really like it!)
Bel Canto by Ann Patchett (This one is still a maybe - haven't started it yet)
Something Wicked This Way Comes by Ray Bradbury - (haven't gotten to start this one yet)
Wolf Hall by Hilary Mantel (I have started this one, but not sure if I am going to stay with it)

Upcoming books:
The Memory Thief  by Emily Colin
And When She Was Good by Laura Lippman

Books reviewed last week: 
Revenant by Allan Leverone

Books read and needing to be reviewed:
Why My Third Husband Will Be a Dog by Lisa Scottoline
Some Kind of Fairy Tale by Graham Joyce

Until next week ----  Ready - Set - Read!

I tried and tried to finish Wolf Hall but I just couldn't do it. Still, others seem to love it. I'd love to see what you think of it.

My favorite book last week was Wyrd Sisters by Terry Pratchett. Please come see what else I'm reading.

The Midwife of Hope River sounds good. Enjoy the rest of your summer! I'm sort of dreading the new school year and I hope I can get past that in time for it to start.

I'm into the third book in the Pine Deep trilogy Bad Moon Rising via Audible and now that I'm in the last part of the book I'm reducing the time I spend to sleeping to make more time to find out this seriously evil work of horror fiction ends.

We're flying to Montreal for the weekend so I plan to knock off Velocity by Alan Jacobson which I started three months ago. Not a typo there. [sigh]
