It’s Monday: What Are You Reading?


I’m still buried under my amazing library haul from April – and they’re still coming in!  So I’m never updating my kindle again lest my ebooks disappear and also reading some fun advance copies.

My biggest book is thankfully an ebook, Charlotte Bronte: Fiery Heart is really good but the 450+ pgs are taking forever.  For non-fiction I’m bouncing between Bronte and Mother Tongue:My Family’s Globe-Trotting Quest to Dream in Mandarin, Laugh in Arabic, and Sing in Spanish and basically now I want to move to Spain to learn Spanish and Catalan.  Or New Zealand to stick with English, I think I’d like being a Kiwi.

I’m going to finish Last Call at the Nightshade Lounge tonight and Chicago’s magical bartenders are cracking me up.  Then I’m going to delve into Traitor Angels for a fictional history of Paradise Lost and finally Tracy Barone’s Happy Family which I’ve been dying to read for months!

What are you reading this week?  Thanks to The Book Date for hosting this check-in!


  1. New Zealand sounds great, I’ve always thought! I have this vague notion, which I’m not sure where I heard, that there are lots and lots of used bookstores in New Zealand. PLUS I know for a fact there are absolutely no snakes. If you find a snake in New Zealand, you can call the government and they will panic and take care of it for you.

  2. Ha! I almost put aside Nightshade Lounge because it is SO badly written, but then I got into it and decided it was too much fun to stop. I now have a mission to try to make every one of those drinks.
