It’s Monday! What are you reading?

It’s Monday! What are you reading?

It’s Monday! What are you reading? is a weekly meme hosted by Sheila over at Book Journey.

I’m calling this post my get-my-butt-into-gear edition. I am so behind in almost all aspects of my life since  I was suffering from migraines last week. I was able to read was A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness. It was an okay read. I didn’t love it like so many others did.  I have homework, errands, and tons of reading to catch up on. If I stay migraine-free this week, I’m hoping to read:

  1. Okay for Now by Gary Schmidt (for my Mock Newbery group)
  2. Consuming Passions: A Food Obsessed Life by Michael Lee West
  3. Switch: How to Change Things When Change is Hard by Chip Heath and Dan Heath
  4. Leaving a Trace by Alexandra Johnson
  5. I’m hoping to read at least two more books but I have no idea which ones.
I need to review:
  1. Eat: The Effortless Weight Loss Solution by Ian K. Smith
  2. 32 Candles by Ernessa T. Carter
  3. A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness (I’m not sure. I think I’ll probably re-read it first.)
  4. Radioactive: Marie and Pierre Curie by Lauren Redniss
So that’s what I’m hoping to accomplish. What are you reading this week?

  1. The Marie Curie book sounds fascinating to me, and I hope you enjoy it. I am in the middle of The True Memoirs of Little K, and finding myself a little less than enamored of it at this point. The main character has a huge ego, which is one thing I really can’t stand in the books I read. It’s so weird, but when I am reading a book that I am not really pleased with, I sort of get angry and depressed a bit. I guess I am just too temperamental!

  2. As celebration for the new Bloggers’ Alliance of Nonfiction Devotees (, I’m cheering on everyone’s nonfiction reading today. So, yay for Consuming Passions, Switch, Leaving a Trace, Eat, and Radioactive! I’ve started Switch twice but the library wanted it back before I finished. I need to try it again.

  3. I hope the migraines stay away and let you read:-) I really enjoying The Wednesday Wars, and I’ve heard great things about Okay for Now. I hope you like it!
