It's Monday, What Are You Reading?


It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is a weekly meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journey.  It's a great way for book bloggers to get themselves organized for the week and for book lovers to find tons of new books to add to their reading pile!

I missed writing one of these posts last week due to all the illness going around my house.  I did very little reading for about a week and a half but thanks to Dewey's 24 Hour Readathon on Saturday I managed to get a couple of those left off books finished ask well as starting and finishing two great books.

What I Read:
 

Brave New World by Aldous Huxley
Inside by Alix Ohlin
The Stone Thrower: A Daughter's Lessons, A Father's Life by Jael Ealey Richardson
Teaching: It's Harder Than It Looks by Gerry Dee

What I'm Reading Now/Next:
Haven't quite decided what I'm going to pick up today but here's what is at the top of my pile.
 

The First Gardener by Denise Hildreth Jones
The Selector of Souls by Shauna Singh Baldwin
The Sweet Girl by Annabel Lyon

What are you reading this week?

    It seems almost everyone did the read-a-thon. I didn't but might have to try it out next time!
