Monday Round Up (11.16.09)

November 15, 2009

on_mondays“What are you reading on Mondays” is a weekly event hosted by J. Kaye that lets you share books you’ve read over the past week and books you have coming up.

Last week I finished Lucy Sullivan is Getting Married by Marian Keyes. In the end I liked it, but I had trouble getting into it.

Right now I’m reading Watership Down by Richard Adams for the Back To School Challenge.

After that? I’m really hoping to get to According to Jane by Marilyn Brant. It’s been sitting on my shelf for a while now and I keep hearing about how fun it is.

No new books have made their way into my home this week, but I did just receive notification that I won a book! Woot! So I will have something to add to Mailbox Monday in the near future.


I got this very lovely award from Jennifer at Reading with Tequila.

    I listened to the audio version of Watership Down a few years ago and LOVED it.

    I haven’t read any of the books you have in your post this week. I am interested in seeing what you think of According to Jane especially if it is suppose to be funny. I love a funny book so it might end up on my TBR list if you give it a good review.

    Congrats on your award and good on you for sticking with the Lucy Sullivan Is Getting Married… sounds like it worked out well in the end..
