It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

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

Last week was a very interesting one here.  Friday was a snow day as we got hit by a storm that left us with 26cm of snow in less than a day.  The entire family was home and while I had hoped to spend the day reading, I instead spent it watching movies and playing video games with the kids.  And watching snowplows get stuck in the snow.  So of course, once the storm stopped we spent a lot of time outside sledding and playing.

On Saturday, I had the great fortune of attending Random House of Canada's Blogger Love event.  It was a great get together of a group of book bloggers complete with food, great books and lively discussion.  The event was graced with the presence of author Andrew Kaufman who spoke about and signed copies of his latest book Born Weird.  He also shared with us what he's working on now and it sounds amazing.  It was a fantastic day so a big shout out to the ladies of the Random House of Canada Online Marketing crew.

Now on to books...

What I Read Last Week
Yep, just one book.  I did start two others but this is the only one I had enough time to finish.  And I probably only finished it because it was already a few days overdue at the library.  Whatever the reason, last week I read The Last Runaway by Tracy Chevalier.

What I'm Reading Now
I started The Air We Breathe by Christa Parrish last week.  It's a good book but taking me longer than I expected.  I also started reading The Dinner by Herman Koch and I hate that I have to keep putting it down to go to sleep.  I've been hearing great things about and how it keeps pulling you in as you read and it's doing just that to me.

What I Plan to Read Next

The Scottish Banker of Surabaya by Ian Hamilton and A Long Walk to Water by Linda Sue Park were the two books I had planned to read last week.  We have a long weekend this week with a PA Day on Friday and a holiday on Monday and nothing planned so I'm fairly certain I'll be able to get to them this week.

What are you reading this week?


  1. The Chevalier book is a new one for me. Looking forward to your review.

  2. The Dinner captured my interest...hope you enjoy all of your books!


  3. Yay for snow days! We got around 5" of heavy stuff last night. Enjoy your books this week :)

  4. The Dinner sounds great. and I added the Last Runaway to my list sometime back.. have to get around to reading it.
