It's Monday...What Are You Reading? (3/23)

Happy Monday!  Happy Spring Break!  Happy Bloggiesta!  I have (gulp) a lot of work to do on the blog this week, so send good thoughts that I actually get it done! My daughter will be in dance camp for about 5 hours a day on Monday and Tuesday, so I should be able to get a good dent in my to-do list done during that time.

Before I go any further, if you subscribe to my blog in a blog reader, please note that the URL has changed....it is now www.westmetromommyreads.com.




This week on the blog I posted:
Tuesday, March 17 - Bloggiesta Week!
Wednesday, March 18 - Book Review: "When Mountains Move" by Julie Cantrell
Thursday, March 19 - Thoughts on GENRE and Why I'm Doing Away with Women's Fiction
Saturday, March 21 - Saturday Snapshot

Right now, I'm reading:
Paper Towns by John Green
I feel almost obligated to read this one.  The movie will be out in a few months and I've been meaning to read it, but now is the time.  As I was scrolling through my Kindle library for my next phone read, this title popped up.

The Bookseller by Cynthia Swanson
I'm reading this one for a TLC book tour, but it looks fascinating!  I have a feeling it will be a pretty fast read for me.

Ladies in Low Places by Mary Ann Henry
Now that I have a print book going again (The Bookseller) I probably will going at this one with a slower pace.  I've enjoyed it, but I'm reading a story only about every other day or so.

Charlotte's Web by E.B. White
Yep, still working on this one!

Horoscopes for the Dead by Billy Collins
I think I accidentally left this off my post last week, but I'm still working on it....









Right now, I'm listening to:
Bad Feminist by Roxane Gay
I'm only listening to this at the gym, which is good for my workout schedule, but slow going with this book.  I have a feeling that I'm going to have to buy a print copy of this book for a reference after I finish reading this.








Last week, I finished reading:
The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion
I flew through this book!  I sort of avoided this book for a long time because of all the hype.   Then, I won a copy of The Rosie Effect and thought I should probably read this one first.

The Children's Crusade by Ann Packer
I don't want to say too much about this book because I will be reviewing it, but I will say this:  This book was a lot of work to get through.  I'm not saying that is a positive or negative thing, but I really had to force myself to read it at times.

Sex, Lies, and Online Dating by Rachel Gibson
I finally made it through a romance novel!   I'm planning a post about my "Romance Project" but I will say that it is a very difficult genre for me, and not for any good reason.  Really, it shouldn't be that way so I'm, um, tackling the problem.  Because I haven't made peace with this genre (yet), I won't be reviewing romances--unless I absolutely love them.

And, that's it for this week....now to all my bloggiesta to-dos!
