Monday Round Up (Christmas Edition 2010)
Belated Merry Christmas! I hope that everyone who celebrates had a wonderful Christmas. Ours was three full days of family celebrations. It was a really fun Christmas, but I’m definitely happy to have this week off and to have planned absolutely nothing for today.
All that I do have planned for today?
#1: Stay in pyjamas
#2: Eat Christmas gooodies
#3: Read. And oh boy do I have lots of new books to choose from!
On Wednesday last week, I suddenly decided I needed some Christmas reads for my week off between Christmas and New Years, so I made a pit stop at the library on my way home and came away with these:
And then Christmas came and I now have these lovelies towering on my coffee table. I love the variety found within this pile!
Sydney Salter – Swoon At Your Own Risk
Yoko Ogawa – The Housekeeper and the Professor
Christopher Moore – Lamb
Sophie Kinsella – Mini-Shopaholic
Kazuo Ishiguro – Never Let Me Go
Shilpi Somaya Gowda – Secret Daughter
Jennifer Brown – The Hate List
Shobhan Bantwal – The Sari Shop Widow
Plus (yes there’s more), these books arrived last week:
Marilynne Robinson – Gilead (borrowed from my mom)
Richard Paul Evans – The Christmas List (borrowed from my mom)
Sarrah Dessen – Someone Like You (won at Book, Line and Sinker)
“It’s Monday What Are You Reading” is a weekly event hosted by Sheila that lets you share books you’ve read over the past week and books you have coming up.
Whew. So what have I been reading lately? Thanks to everyone who left great suggestions last week as to what I should read next. I ended up starting Very Valentine by Adriana Trigiani, as recommend by Danielle. But I put it down after a couple days to start my Christmas reads and plan to pick it up again in 2011.
Finished: On Strike for Christmas by Sheila Roberts
Currently Reading: Visions of Sugar Plums by Janet Evanovich
Up Next: When Christmas Comes by Debbie Macomber and The Gift by Cecelia Ahern
What are you reading? Did any new books find their way into your possession?
