It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is a weekly meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journey.

This past week wasn't a good one reading wise for me.  Scratch that, I read a lot, just not really novels.  I started a couple but unfortunately had to return them to the library before I could finish them.  I've also been reading/flipping through a lot of books about going vegan.  I flip back and forth between periods of eating meat and being vegetarian.  And now I'm in one of those vegetarian periods, but this time I decided that I wanted to try going more toward vegan.  I won't label myself that because I don't want to deny myself a bit of dairy when I'm out, but when I'm home and cooking for myself, I'm trying to do all vegan.  I'll post about the books that have been helping me on my journey later this week.

What I Read Last Week
Once Upon a Prince by Rachel Huack is a lovely story about a woman who unknowingly falls in love with an actual prince.  The Little Prince is the classic children's book by Antoine de Saint-ExupĂ©ry and I read it as a precursor to Ania Szado's latest novel.

What I'm Reading Now
You know those books where you don't really know what they're about but pick them up because the author is totally amazing?  That's why I'm reading Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie.

What I Plan to Read Next
This week is the Bout of Books 7.0 read-a-thon so I'm aiming big this week!

    1. I can't believe I hadn't read The Little Prince either! It doesn't take long to read (an hour?) you should definitely pick it up.

  3. I read the Little Prince in French class in high school, I think I need to revisit the English version :) Happy reading this week. <a title="Monday" href="http://momssmallvictories.com/its-monday-what-are-you-reading-may-13-2013/>Here's my Monday post if you'd like to stop by</a>
