It's Monday!

It’s Monday! What are you reading? is a weekly event hosted by Sheila at Book Journey to share with others what you've read the past week and planning to read next.

Last week I finished Still Alice by Lisa Genova which I will review this week. The story totally hooked me up so I had to read the second half of the book at night in my bed, reading lamp on, cat and my better half already asleep next to me.

Now I'm reading Oryx and Crake by Margaret Atwood. First I thought I would never get into this book, but it had me when Snowman begins to tell the story of the days which are now long gone.

I also got three new books last week. All of them well known to you readers, I think.

I got The Help by Kathryn Stockett, The Distant Hours by Kate Morton and Room by Emma Donoghou.


  1. I love The Help. Hope you enjoy it.

  2. Oh, The Help was great! Hope you like it. I really want to read Still Alice, and I should have read Oryx and Crake before The Year of the Flood, which is on Sparky, my Kindle, and which I'm sure to dive into soon.

    Enjoy your reading!


  3. I mostly read picture books. But I did finish the Hunger Games. Come see what I'm reading now.

  4. I've got Room in my TBR pile, it's waiting for me to be in the right mood to read it.

  5. It looks like you're only reading very good books at the moment! I loved Oryx and Crake, The Help and I want to read Room and the Kate Morton book.

    It should be a really good week for you, if you're going to read these!

  6. New follower! The Help looks great :)

  7. Yes, I'm a lucky girl and I'm looking forward to reading some great books. Thank you all for your comments.
