It's Monday! What Are You Reading?
It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is a weekly meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journey.
Happy Thanksgiving all! This is our last day of a four day weekend. This year we decided to enjoy the holiday just the four of us and not go anywhere. It's been a wonderful lazy four days. Saturday was also Dewey's 24 Hour Readathon and I was able to devote a very good chunk of the day to reading.
What I Read Last Week:
Caught by Lisa Moore is shortlisted for the Giller Prize and the Roger's Writer Trust Prize this year. The Midwife of Venice by Roberta Rich is a historical fiction novel about a Jewish midwife who delivers a baby for Christian nobility.
What I'm Reading Now
All three of these books were started last week, two during the readathon. So this week will be devoted to finishing them. The Orenda by Joseph Boyden was longlisted for the Giller Prize and shortlisted for the Governor General's Fiction Award. Hellgoing by Lynn Coady was shortlisted for the Giller Prize and the Roger's Writer's Trust Prize. And Bridget Jones: Mad About the Boy by Helen Fielding is, well, Bridget Jones.

Sounds like you have had a nice relaxing Holiday- great list of books! This weekend I read "No One Can Know" by Adrienne LaCava, an amazing political thriller that takes multiple POVs with differing perspectives on 1960’s issues, including the assassination of JFK. http://adriennelacava.com/ReplyDelete
Thanks for recommending this one, Ashley! I am a huge JFK history buff and a thriller sounds intriguing.Delete
You are welcome! Thank you for your list of books as well. I have added them to my must read list!Delete
Glad your weekend was great. I want to read the Bridget Jones book.ReplyDelete
The Giller Prize is Canadian right? Oddly enough not much Canadian fiction seems to make its way over here to Australia. I hope you enjoy your reading choices this weekReplyDelete
