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’m getting into the very-extra-super busy time of year at work (during the school year, all the times are busy times!) but we’re approaching the end of the semester when everyone is finishing up recitals, which means I get a little bit swamped, to put it politely 🙂 So while I like being busy and having lots of projects, this 5–6 weeks or so means I don’t have as much time for reading. Summer is right around the corner, though!

Over the weekend I took a lovely day trip to Columbia, Missouri, to hear a choral work of my husband’s performed in concert, and caught up with a college friend who works out there now. We had a great time! Also, yesterday, I finished reading The Thief of Always by Clive Barker, which was a childhood favorite of my husband’s and now we can discuss it. Marriage book club! I love it.

After that, I started Hausfrau by Jill Alexander Essbaum, picked up from the library. I have to see what all the fuss is about, and I can’t wait to get into the discussions at the Socratic Salon website! I’m behind everyone over there but that’s okay. Finally, I’m almost finished with the audio for Mind of Winter by Laura Kasischke, which I expect to finish tonight on my drive to rehearsal.

What are you reading this week?

  1. Can’t wait to dive into Hausfrau… I JUST finished a wonderful book: Beyond the pale by Emily Urquhart.

    Now reading a couple of middle-grade books: The Secret Life of Owen Skye and Flora Ulysses.

    Cheers,
    Carole

  2. I couldn’t WAIT to buy Hausfrau, but now that I”m in between books I’m all “but what about those other hundred that I bought before it.” Sigh. Have you finished it by now? I might read it after my next read.
