It's Monday, May 2nd! 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. It gives bloggers a chance to share with they have been reading and what they plan to read next.

It's a new month! Happy May! Only 16 more days of school left for the kids.

Here is what I am currently reading:

What Is Not Yours Is Not Yours

What Is Not Yours Is Not Yours by Helen Oyeyemi is a book of short stories. I've only read the first 2 so far, and, while I prefer longer form fiction, they have both been very interesting.

The Memory of Light

I am listening to The Memory of Light by Francisco X. Stork, read by Frankie Corzo. After Vicki's suicide attempt, she finds herself in a state mental hospital. There she makes friends and tries to understand what drove her to try to commit suicide and how to get well. 

Maniac Magee

I am also reading Maniac Magee by Jerry Spinelli. This is my first Spinelli. It won the Newbery Medal back in 1991, so it seemed like a good place to start.

And that is what I'm currently reading. Up next, I have a few books. 

On audio:

The PassengerThe Serpent KingPrivate Citizens

And in print:

All Stories Are Love StoriesEleven HoursThe Hidden Oracle (The Trials of Apollo, #1)

What are you reading this week?


  1. I remember reading Maniac Magee when I was in elementary school, this definitely takes me back!!

  2. I am waiting in the library queue for What Is Not Yours. Have you read Oyeyemi before?

  3. I'm intrigued with The Memory of LIght.

  4. Love that title: What is Not Yours, Is Not Yours. :)

    Oooooo...I really liked The Passenger.

    I hope you are having a good week.

  5. So many good books here! I loved Maniac Magee, even though I read it as an adult. Modern folklore, just so well done.
    I am getting behind in my Lisa Lutz reading. I still have her last fun one, and now this serious one. Have you read her Heads You Lose book?

  6. I hope you enjoy What's Yours Is Not Yours -- I've heard lots of raves!
