It's Monday, April 18th! What Are You Reading?


It's a new week and time for the weekly Monday post! "It's Monday! What Are You Reading?" is a weekly meme hosted by Kathryn at The Book Date.

Here is what I am currently reading:

All Our Yesterdays 

I am about one hour away from finishing All Our Yesterdays by Christin Terrill. When it is done, I will have finished 12 of the 15 nomineees for the Gateway Readers Award. I think the winner will be announced later this week. On Thursday I will write a post on all of the nominees that I read and what my predictions are.

The Queen of the Night

I started The Queen of the Night by Alexander Chee on audio last month, and I had trouble getting into it. I hope to give it a try in print this week. It is due back at the library on the 23rd.

The Summer Before the War

I am listening to The Summer Before the War by Helen Simonson. I really like the narrator, but again I am having trouble paying attention to it. Maybe it's me? I plan to stick with it for now.

Inkspell (Inkworld, #2)

Also this week my son has requested that I read him the next book in the Inkheart trilogy, Inkspell

The Reason I Jump: The Inner Voice of a Thirteen-Year-Old Boy with Autism

If I find time to read some nonfiction this week, it will be The Reason I Jump: The Inner Voice of a Thirteen-year-Old Boy with Autism by Naoki Higashida. It may have to wait until after the Missouri Readers Awards are passed out at the end of this week. I still have 4 books to read for that. Even though teen and juvenile books generally only take me a day, that's still 4 days of reading! 

I know some bloggers are participating in a readathon this weekend, but between working 8-5 on Saturday and my son's baseball and soccer teams both having a tournament this week, I think I will be too busy!

Have a good week, everyone! Feel free to leave a comment and let me know what you are reading or your thoughts on what I'm reading.

  1. I enjoyed Queen of the Night. I will be interested to see if it works better in print for you!
