it’s monday! what are you reading?

It’s Monday, what are you reading?—a weekly blog meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journey.

I had a fantastic weekend of reading over Thanksgiving! I had my own little readathon, and it kind of kicked me out of a reading slump-funk I had the last couple of months (only two in October, and until this last weekend only two in November, too… not counting continuing 11/22/63 in November).

  • Room … Emma Donoghue (all)
  • Roll Me Up and Smoke Me… Willie Nelson (all)
  • Packers: Green, Gold and Glory … Sports Illustrated (finished)
  • A Prayer for the Dying … Stewart O’Nan (started)

I was able to read more than half of the O’Nan book yesterday, so I’m sure I can finish it at some point today. I’ll have review posts of these four up through the week!

Lastly of course I’m still reading Stephen King’s 11/22/63 for the 112263Along, but it was nice to take a small break from it for a few days (and I’m liking pacing my reading of this one out so I can finish close to the final day of the readalong, December 22). AND I’m planning on starting Sudden Sea by R. A. Scotti this week—our pick for December in my library’s Stranger than Fiction book group.

What are you reading this week?

    • I just finished it tonight and I really did. It was like a slow simmer… bubbling strong before you even realize it. The second-person singular took me a little getting used to at first, though. I read O’Nan’s Last Night at the Lobster several years ago and liked it, but I liked Prayer a bit better.

      Thanks for stopping by my blog!
