It's Monday, What Are You Reading? - January 18, 2016

Phew!  What a weekend!  Actually, it is still going for me.  Yes, I'm writing this up on Sunday night, but--for the first time in his professional life--my husband as Martin Luther King, Jr. Day off so we'll be going down to my hometown to see family (and my daughter will be trying to sell Girl Scout cookies).  While it is nice to have the opportunity to sleep in--if the kids will let me--these weekends do end up being busy!

Right Now, I'm reading:
Rose Under Fire by Elizabeth Wein
This is apparently the sequel to Code Name Verity, which I haven't read.  However, this one really can be read as a standalone--at least as far as I am into it.  I appreciate that after the issue I had with The Scent of Secrets (you can read my rant in last week's IMWAYR post).  The problem I am having--and it is not a problem with the book--is that I am reading this in print, and I usually do my "print reading" in bed.  This also takes place in a concentration camp (and I'm not even to that part yet!) and there is something about reading about concentration camps that always leads to dreams about concentration camps--and, well, one does not have nice dreams about concentration camps.  So, I'm having to shake up my reading a bit so that I read this earlier in the day and then read something on my Kindle at night.

Right now, I'm listening to:
Beautiful Ruins by Jess Walter
I haven't been able to get to the gym this week, so I have made very little progress on this.  Such is life!

Alexander Hamilton by Ron Chernow
Still.  Only 33 hours, 39 minutes left.

Last week, I read:
The Scent of Secrets by Jane Thynne (review 2/4/16)
I notice that the 4th book in this series is due out soon in the US soon.  It would be nice if books 1 and 2 would be released here at some point....

The Rosie Effect by Graeme Simsion (review 3/8/16)
It took me longer than I thought it would to read this and I'm still trying to sift though my thoughts on it.  And, there was another little crinkle...keep reading...

The Two of Us by Andy Jones (review 2/9/16)
So, I started reading this while I was still reading The Rosie Effect...and both books are about men dealing with their partners' pregnancies....and this similarities made it hard to read both at the same time.  Ultimately, I ended up putting this one aside until I finished The Rosie Effect.

I'll be starting a new ebook soon (like tomorrow/Monday), but I'm not sure what it will be tune in next week!
