Giveaway Winner and It’s Monday. What are you reading?

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

Last week was a pretty slow reading week for me. I don’t know what happened but it seemed like there was never enough time in the day. I read:



  • Just Ducks! by Nicola Davies (4 out of 5 stars)
  • A Thousand Mornings: Poems by Mary Oliver (3 out of 5 stars)
  • Home by Novogratz by Robert and Courtney Novogratz (3 out of 5 stars)
  • Fables Vol. 17: Inherit the Wind by Bill Willingham (5 out of 5 stars)

So far this week I’ve read:

Going in Circles by Pamela Ribbon (5 out of 5 stars)

Between read-alongs, advanced reading copies, library books, and my own books, I think I have too many reading choices. There are so many possibilities and I’m getting bogged down. I need to make my book jar soon.


This week I’m thinking about reading:

  • Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell
  • The Garden of Evening Mists by Tan Twan Eng. It just won the Man Asian Award.
  • A Map of Time by Felix Palma
  • Anything else that catches my eye.

    Congratulations to your winner! I am listening to The Song of Achilles, and not sure what I will be reading yet. Whatever can hold my attention!

    I sure didn’t get much reading done this weekend. Bloggiesta sapped all of my time 🙂 It was worth it though! I hope you have a great week of reads coming up! I’m curious to hear what you think of The Garden of Evening Mists

  6. readerbuzz says:

    Garden of Evening Mists looks fantastic! Hope you’ll share what you think!

    I haven’t been reading much lately — and the library wants me to return the one book that I got started, but I’m only about a third of the way through. Ack! It’s _Salt, Sugar, Fat_ by Michael Moss — brand new and the author has been on all kinds of news shows, so I guess it’s no surprise that someone else wants to read it.

    Congrats to Sara!

    Oh, I’ll be interested in your thoughts on Evening Mists, I read it as part of the Booker longlist last year and really enjoyed it but then saw that the reviews are very much love it or hate it which was a bit surprising. Happy reading this week!

    I’m definitely in the “anything that catches my eye” category. I need to get back to Fables.

    I just listened to The Map of Time on audio, and really liked it. It has an intrusive narrator, so there’s quite a bit about the story as a story, what to tell, what to leave out, etc., which I enjoy. I need to listen to The Map of the Sky now!
