Monday Malarkey

Well, huh, I guess this is just going to be one of those off reading years. I hope not, but it certainly has gotten off to a terrible start. Last week, I only read one book . . . again.  I don't think it was the book's fault although it didn't do much for me. There were just a couple of days I didn't feel like reading at all. On the plus side, Fiona willingly posed with the arrivals. Upper.

Recent arrivals (not in the order shown above):

  • America's First Daughter by Stephanie Dray and Laura Kamoie,
  • World Gone By by Dennis Lehane, and 
  • The Taxidermist's Daughter by Kate Mosse - all from HarperCollins for review
  • Euphoria by Lily King - purchased for April F2F discussion
  • The Gone-Away World by Nick Harkaway - purchased on a whim (thanks to Carrie)

Not pictured (because it arrived about 10 minutes ago):

  • Normal Norman by Tara Lazar and S. Britt - from Sterling Children's Books for review 

Books finished last week:

  • What She Knew by Gilly Macmillan

Currently reading:

  • Absolutely nothing. I'm sure I'll start a new novel, today (since I just finished What She Knew, early this morning) but I haven't even thought about what to read next, yet. I will probably continue reading the Kate Hudson book on how she stays slim, tonight, even though what little I've read was meh.

It took a few years but this girl has totally become my lap buddy. I love it. All I have to do is put a blanket across my lap and up she comes.

  1. I hope your reading year gets better!

    1. Thanks! I'm trying not to let it bother me. Some years you just don't read as much and I'm not sure it's a terrible thing. Maybe it just means I need to put my focus elsewhere, for a while. :)

  2. The start of this month was good for me reading wise but now it's dropped off again. Just don't feel like reading. It happens. I love Fi's angry eyes in the photo with the books.

    1. Yeah, that's exactly what I'm going through. I'll have a good week, then a week that I just feel like going straight to bed without reading at night, then a good reading week . . . it's not typical but I'm getting to the point that I feel like, "OK, I'm just going to go with the flow." It's only disappointing because I own so freaking many books and I'm not going to live forever!!! LOL

      Oh, does she look angry? She was surprised, I think, when I plunked the books down next to her but she just sniffed them and stayed put. She seemed pretty relaxed to me. Fiona's quite laid back.
