It's Monday, reading

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?

It’s been too long since my last post. I’ve missed you all so much! The baby’s sleep, so let’s see if I can write and post this before she wakes up.

I actually read a book last week! It’s such an amazing feeling when you finish a book after such a long period of doing everything but reading. Last week, I received a copy of William Ritter’s Jackaby and his newest book, Beastly Bones. I dove into Jackaby and finished it in a day. The book has been described as “Sherlock Holmes crossed with Buffy the Vampire Slayer” and it kind of fits. I just started Beastly Bones and I plan on finishing it soon.

Now that I’m reading again, I want to be ambitious and make a reading list for the week. Up next, I hope to read The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness by Michelle Alexander with Shannon (River City Reading). If I’m lucky (I probably won’t be), I’m including Challenger Deep by Neal Shusterman and X: A Novel by Ilyasah Shabazz.

What are you reading this week?

  1. Sherlock crossed with BtVS sounds amaaaaaaaazing.

    I couldn’t sleep last night so I spent the night reading Austenland. It seems like the only time I get any reading done is when I have insomnia.

  2. Glad that you are able to read! Blogging is a huge challenge for me – I end up using the time the baby sleeps to knit, so there goes my writing time.

  3. Jackaby would definitely be a good book to break a slump! I definitely want to reread it before I read Beastly Bones.
    I just finished the new Gregory Maguire book, After Alice, and it was disappointing and took me ages to read — quite a bummer for one of my favorite authors writing about one of my favorite stories. I need my next book to be awesome. Maybe I’ll just start in on that Jackaby reread!

  4. Hope the baby is finding her sleeping rhythm! Those covers for the Ritter books are great. Haven’t read them but am intrigued. Looking forward to your thoughts on them.

  5. I come to this post very belatedly but: How did you like Jackaby? Sounds like it was generally a win for you? I started reading it from the library a while ago and wasn’t immediately enthralled, but do I maybe just need to persist?
