It's Monday...What Are You Reading? (10/12)

Phew..I survived this week.  Have you ever had one of those weeks that are over-scheduled before they begin and then NOTHING goes as planned?  Well, that was my week.  I'm hoping this coming week is better, and it might be.  My daughter has 2 days off school and I canceled a few appointments, but then the following week is supposed to be crazy busy again.  I guess I'd better just accept this as my normal....sigh!

Right now, I'm reading:
The Main Book:
A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman
I just started this last night, so I really can't say much about it yet.  It is my last postal book club book of the year.  I belong to two of these groups and it has really been great fun!

The Phone Book:
Heart-Shaped Hack by Tracey Garvis Graves
Another self-published book and another romance.  A year ago, that would have been two strikes against this book, but I surprise myself.  I will say that self-published books can be a chore to navigate, but there are some good ones out there.

With My Daughter:
Clementine by Sara Pennypacker
Because this week has been so crazy, we haven't been able to get my daughter in bed early enough to hear a chapter.  Sigh....

The "A Few Pages Before Bed" Book:
The Secret History of Wonder Woman by Jill Lepore
I feel kind of guilty putting this on here week after week when I only read a few pages at a time.  It isn't that the book is dull, it is just that I'm so tired by the time I roll into bed that I can't manage more than that...

Last week, I finished reading:
These are the Moments by Jenny Bravo (review to be posted 10/14)
I actually shuffled some reviews around to get this one up sooner (I pushed The Wanderer back a few weeks).  Oh, and there will be a giveaway!

Still Alice by Lisa Genova (review to be posted 11/18)
This one was a hard, but rewarding read.  I actually still have to write the review (again, busy week), but I think it might be a tricky one to do.  We'll see how it turns out.

Before We Were Strangers by Renee Carlino (review to be posted 11/25)
This was a quick phone read--I've found that on busy weeks, I get a lot of phone reading done.  Romances are a genre that work well for this because they are easy to pick up and put down and can stand up to a lot of interruptions (in other words, great for reading in lines and waiting rooms....)
