It's Monday...What Are You Reading? (10/19)

I come to you from under a pile of dirty laundry.  Seriously.  I don't think I've ever been so far behind with this dreaded task as I am right now.  Is my daughter, at 6 and a half years old, too young to learn how to do laundry?  Because, man oh man, this is one task I would LOVE to pass off to someone else!

Congrats to all of you who participated in the Read-a-Thon!  I am in awe of every single one of you...

A little bit of news about this meme...we have a new host.  Sheila at Book Journey has hosted this meme for that past 6 years, but has decided it was time to pass it on to someone else.  So, starting RIGHT NOW, this meme will be hosted by Kathryn over at The Book Date!

Right Now, I'm Reading:
The Main Book:
A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman
I probably shouldn't call this the "main" book since I barely had a chance to read it this week.  I'm hoping to devote more time to it once I finish The Secret History of Wonder Woman.

The "I'd Better Finish this by Wednesday" book:
The Secret History of Wonder Woman by Jill Lepore
I've been working on this book forever but am now reading it in earnest.  It wasn't that this book is is just that I had too many other books going.  My book club is on Wednesday and I am hoping that I'll have this one done by then....

The "Phone" Book:
A Memoir of Grief (Continued) by Jennifer Weiner
I'm not really sure if I should count this one as it is actually a short story/novella.  Weiner has published a number of these electronically and I have them all waiting in my Kindle queue for when I need something quick.

With My Daughter:
Clementine by Sara Pennypacker
Sigh...yes...still!  This is actually a good book and we are enjoying it when we read it, but my daughter has been resisting being in bed early enough to read it, which is why we haven't made much progress.

Last week, I read:
Heart-Shaped Hack by Tracey Garvis-Graves (review to be posted 1/5/16)
I made it through this one pretty quickly and I found out that there will be a sequel coming, although I'm not sure when.

Sarai by Jill Eileen Smith (no review)
I read this one for my church book club and I had a predictable reaction to it.  Smith did a good job of rewriting the story or Sarai/Sarah from the book of Genesis, but that didn't change the fact that it is a rather uncomfortable story to read.  I'm looking forward to the discussion when we meet in November.

A Bollywood Affair by Sonali Dev (review to be posted 1/7/16)
I'm actually late writing up this post because I was finishing this book.  As I've written before, I read romance, but very few romances really stick with me.  This one was one of those. I have Dev's 2nd book, The Bollywood Bride in my TBR shelve and I hope to get to that one very, very soon!
