It's Monday....What Are You Reading? March 27 - #IMWAYR

Happy Spring!  It is officially Spring here, which means 2 things:

  1. It is gray and rainy out
  2. My kids are on Spring Break
We have no big plans for Spring Break this year.  We normally go to Arizona during the break, but we ended up going in February this year.  My husband may take a day or two off work, but other than that the kids and I are on our own.  Personally, my goal is to sleep in every single day.  These days, that's a luxury.

In blog news, I'm going to make some rather fundamental changes with the blog and how I do things.  I'm hoping to have a post up about this on Wednesday--but, as it is Spring Break and I have that parenting gig going on, I can't guarantee that will happen.  So, just hold on if you don't see it!

Now, onto the update....

It's Monday...What Are You Reading? is hosted by Kathryn at Book Date.  Please visit her blog to link up and join the fun!

I've decided to drop books that have been lingering on here for what seems like forever from the update.  I'm still reading them (slowly, off and on), but I'm going to stick with what I consider my "active" reads for this update.

Forever is the Worst Long Time: A Novel by Camille Pagan is an interesting romance novel that is the perfect "different" read for me right now.  It's told from the male point of view, which isn't very common.  I'm not too far in, but it has me intrigued.

I'm reading The Half Wives by Stacia Pelletier for a book tour and it is another one of those books that isn't quite like any other.  It's also a good fit for me right now, format-wise, as the short chapters make it easy to pick up and put down.

In Her Shoes by Jennifer Weiner is a re-read for me that I'm doing on audio.  I love Jennifer Weiner's books and read them (usually) as soon as they come out--which means it has been over a decade since I read some of them.  This one is probably my favorite of her books, so it is making my workouts a little more enjoyable.

I'm still working through Story Genius: How to Use Brain Science to Go Beyond Outlining and Write a Riveting Novel (Before You Waste Three Years Writing 327 Pages That Go Nowhere) by Lisa Cron.  I've hit the part where I have a bit of work to do outside the book, but I'm still making progress.

I'm planning to go back to also including what I read during the week in 2 weeks.  I'll have my monthly update on April 5th, which will "catch me up" and give me a good place to start with the "read" re-caps again.
