It's Monday! What Are You Reading?
It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is a weekly meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journey.
My poor little blog has been feeling neglected over the last few months and rightfully so. It took a lot longer to get into the new school year routine than I had expected. Between the schedules of two different schools, a community project, and a three time a week French class, things are busier than I expected and unfortunately, my reading has taken a backseat.
But it's now literary award season in Canada and there are ton of great books that I'm hoping to read by the time the awards are presented in November so I've got tons of motivation to get back to the blog. And Dewey's 24 Hour Readathon is coming up on Saturday so that should give me the kick in the pants I need!
What I Read Last Week
What I'm Reading Now
The Orenda by Joseph Boyden is the story of three people - Bird, Snow Falls, and Christophe. Bird is a Huron warrior and has captured Snow Falls, an Iroquois girl and Christophe, a Jesuit missionary. It has been nominated for the Giller Prize and the Governor General's Literary Award.
This book is 486 pages long so I imagine it will take me much of the week to read.
What I Plan to Read Next
How to Get Along With Women by Elisabeth de Mariaffi is a collection of short stories about power, identity and sexuality. It is nominated for the Giller Prize.
