Yet another Monday! (July 4, 2011)

Monday, July 4, 2011


It's Monday! What are you reading this week?

Sheila @ One Persons Journey through a world of Books wants to know what we're reading. I'm only too happy to oblige!


The first of my long weekends is just getting over today, but I am so looking forward to the rest of them this month and the next. While I have a few trips planned during some of the weekends, I'm looking forward to more reading and blogging during the rest.

Reviews up!
Books on my nightstand
I like the pile of books that I'm looking forward to reading next from my Orange list and otherwise. Right now, I have a couple of books going that are both pretty good.

Hello GoodbyeHello Goodbye by Emily Chenoweth: I hadn't made much progress into this book until two days ago. I'm not too far in yet, but the writing is very beautiful so far.
ShantaramShantaram by Gregory David Roberts: I'm finally getting caught up with Shantaram for the readalong after so long. I know I am weeks behind, but I am finally able to read this book without "fearing" interruptions.

Hello Goodbye has a beautiful cover. I don't know what's the book is about, but I'm thinking something sad! ;)

I just finished State of Wonder last night and I'm still mulling it all around in my head.  I hope you have a great week in books.

Can't wait to see what you think of the Shantaram readings once you start posting to our group! Enjoy your three-day weekends, that extra day somehow seems to make a huge difference

Misha  Shantaram is entertaining so far! I don't really like some of the caricaturing happening, but otherwise it is written very well!

Athira / Aths said...

Thanks! I hope you have a great day and week!

Athira / Aths said...

I hope you have a fab week too!

@5cd5ef7a41623c98d07b82f0777e28f7:disqus It is. Good guess! :D Something very sad - about a woman with terminal cancer telling her final goodbyes.

Thanks! I hope you have a great week too!

I can't wait to hear your thoughts!!! I'll be looking for your review!

Athira / Aths said...

I can't wait to post either. Right now, I'm weeks behind on everything, so I'm just taking it all one step at a time.

I also can't wait to hear what you think of Shantaram. I remember it being a dense read, but also very good. There was a film version slated for release last year, starring Johnny Depp as Lin, but that seems to have gone off the radar. Too bad!

My reading list consists of a lot of picture books read with my children, as well as the manga I've been reading with my oldest.   Come see what I read.

Oh I did like reading Hello Goodbye, I hope you do as well.  Enjoy your week and your books.

I was so looking forward to the movie. It's sad that it didn't work eventually. Still, the book is good so far.

Athira / Aths said...

Thanks! I hope you have a good week too!

I hope you have a good week!

I can't wait to see what you think of THE SECRET LIVES OF BABA SEGI'S WIVES. I finished it this week as well and thought is was fascinating. I received STATE OF WONDER this week and cannot wait to read it.
