What Are You Reading Monday, 17 August

on_mondaysThanks to J Kaye’s Book Blog for hosting this weekly meme.

So I started last week with such high hopes for starting and finishing many books. The previous week I had finished three, and I really thought this would be the week that I read at least another three. I was visiting my parents and figured I would have some  downtime to relax and read, but you know what they say about the best laid plans. Anyway, as much as I love reading, I think my time was very well spent visiting with my parents, traveling around all over in the car and just hanging out.

I am currently in the middle of reading an ARC copy of Baking Cakes in Kigali by Gaile Parkin, which I really hoped to have done and my review up by Tuesday, the day of the book release. Unfortunately that won’t be happening, but I will have it done this week and put the review up ASAP, but in the meantime I will certainly tease you with two sentences from the book tomorrow. So far, I am really enjoying it!

I did finish up a Challenge book last week, the first book in the Harry Potter series, so that goes towards both the Harry Potter Reading Challenge and the August Reading Challenge. I should have listened to those friends all along and started the series sooner, but at least I can read the books on my time without having to wait for the next one to be released. I am not always a patient person when it comes to books – how I will last until the third in the Millennium series comes out I don’t know.

Hope you all have a good reading week – now that I am back, I will be more regularily posting on the blog and on Twitter. If you aren’t following me yet, I am on Twitter: @BaileysandBooks.

  1. I’ve never read the Sookie Stackhouse books but I want to. Happy reading!

  2. Hope you enjoy Living Dead in Dallas — love the Sookie series!

  3. So glad I am not the only one. Although I finished two, one was so thin that it could have been done in an hour by a slow reader. I just couldn’t get in the reading mood last week. It’s all SWOON’s fault! 😉

  4. I can’t wait to see what you think of Baking Cakes in Kigali.

  5. Nice list, enjoy!
