"It's Monday! What Are You Reading?"

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

Well, I did it.  I finally managed to get back into a reading groove.  And it feels oh so good.  I always think summer is going to be fantastic for reading but then it gets here and it's way too busy.  And it really doesn't help that lately I've been addicted to watching 8 Out of 10 Cats on Youtube.  But I've got a ton of good books in my pile that I really want to get to, so I'm making sure I make good time for reading now.

What I Read Last Week
Parenting Without Borders by Christine Gross-Loh
The Twin by Gerbrand Bakker
Crazy Rich Asians by Kevin Kwan - review coming soon but let me say, I loved this book.

What I'm Reading Now
Salt Sugar Fat by Michael Moss

What I Plan to Read Next
I picked up A Constellation of Vital Phenomena by Anthony Marra yesterday and was instantly drawn in.  

After that I can't decide between Reconstructing Amelia by Kimberly McCreight or The Woman Upstairs by Claire Messaud. Have you read either of them?  Which do you think I should read next?

What are you reading this week?


  1. With the excuse of 8 out of 10 cats, I think you can be excused of not getting much reading done. That show is pretty darn funny!

    I almost picked up Reconstructing Amelia last month, however opted for a different book instead. I look forward to your thoughts on that one once you complete it.

    Enjoy your reads!

    1. The show is hilarious, and I must confess, I've got a guilty crush on Jon Richardson! Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Reconstructing Amelia and The Woman Upstairs both look good! I haven't read either one though. And I am going to have to check 8 out of 10 cats out!

  3. I'd love to read The Woman Upstairs, it sounds great! I love those kinds of narrators who are complex or difficult or unreliable etc.

  4. You have some great books coming up. Constellation..whew, powerful and fantastic. I hope you love it!!
