it’s monday! what are you reading?

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

Over the weekend I finished Stone Mattress by Margaret Atwood! A greatly improved Atwood experience after not enjoying The Blind Assassin very much earlier this year. And I’m not usually one for fantasy elements or short stories! review post coming soon this week. I also started a new audiobook for my rehearsal commutes: The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson (gotta read something creepy this month for Halloween!)

Today, October 13, marks a year since my maternal grandmother died. Several years ago, she gave me her copy of Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë, saying it was her favorite book ever… and I never got around to it. I felt horribly guilty for a long time that I never read it or talked with her about it. This last week I’ve been thinking about her a lot, so I figured it was finally time to read her favorite book.

Also, I noticed the books I’ve read so far this month and planned to read just happen to be all by women authors. Pretty cool happenstance!

What are you reading this week?
