It's Monday...What Are You Reading? (12/15)

I didn't post one of these last week because, well, it's December and things are crazy.  There you go.  I was also going through a real reading slump.  I think I went about 5 days without reading anything, which is pretty much a record for me.  I had to do something practically unthinkable to break that slump....but I'll 'fess up to that in a minute.

I also wanted to let you all know that I'll only be posting this meme and the Saturday Snapshot for the rest of the year.  Any reviews that I write before then will be scheduled for 2015.  This is my gift to you...quit reading blogs and get stuff done.  Or read a book instead.  Everything I do, folks, I do it for you.

Anyhoo....



Right now, I'm reading....

  • Fairy Tales From the Brothers Grimm by Philip Pullman...still.  I don't know if I will ultimately review this book.  Frankly, it doesn't seem very "reviewable" to me.  But I will say this, if you are looking to read these tales, this is a great version.
  • The Nazi Officer's Wife: How One Jewish Woman Survived the Holocaust by Edith Hahn Beer.  Fun times, folks. 
  • I Love You More by Jennifer Murphy.  I wish I had more time to read this one as it is quite intriguing.  December is not good for this bookworm.
  • How to Train Your Dragon by Cressida Cowell.  Admittedly, my daughter and I haven't made much progress with this one in the past couple of weeks.  Daddy has been putting on Christmas movies, which edges out our bedtime reading.  Grrrr!
  • Pioneer Girl: The Annotated Autobiograpy by Laura Ingalls Wilder.  Too cool for words.
I'm not going to go into my audiobook titles because, well, we're just listening to Christmas carols.  All the time.

Since my last post, I read:
  • The Divorce Diet by Ellen Hawley (review to be posted 1/14/15)
  • Ugh...do I have to admit this?  Really?  Okay, I read...Grimm: The Chopping Block by John Passarella


Feel honored...I haven't even admitted to my husband that I read that Grimm book.  I don't do tie-ins.  I don't read horror.  But, frankly, it was the only thing that was going to get me out of my slump.  I don't know if I'll review it because, if I write a review, it will probably be the longest review I've ever written.  I would be dissecting that book.  I don't know if dare step into that black hole and show my geekiness to the world.  On the other hand, I think THAT shipped sailed when I added the next Grimm book to my Kindle.  Look, there are only 2 TV shows I actually make a point to watch and, if they ever came out with a tie-in novel for The Big Bang Theory, I'd probably read that too.  So, there....
