What are you reading today?!


It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is where we share what we read this past week, what we hope to read this week…. and anything in between!  This is a great way to plan out your reading week and see what others are currently reading as well… you never know where that next “must read” book will come from!

I love being a part of this and I hope you do too! As part of this weekly meme Book Journey loves to encourage you all to go and visit the others participating in this meme. Book Journey offers a weekly contest for those who visit 10 or more of the Monday Meme participants and leave a comment telling BJ how many you visited.

  1. I'm still slogging through some stuff this summer but my reading time is being cut into with construction. I'm about halfway through The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society and Hell's Corner by David Baldacci. I finished Fifty Shades of Grey a few months ago and it was like pulling teeth, vowing not to read anymore but with the encouragement from friends I am starting the second of the trilogy, Darker. So that is my reading right now.

    1. Insurgent takes place in Chicago (well, an alternate world Chicago) so I'm pretty sure it's going with me.

  3. Love your Paris theme...I read Paris Without End, among others, this week. On the trip, I'd definitely take the Diane Keaton book. And maybe Dairy Queen. Enjoy!

  4. Just the covers alone of those Paris books are so gorgeous!

  5. I sometimes think I buy the Paris books just for the covers!

  6. Paris books are so fantastic! I haven't read any of those. There's so many Paris books, which is great, and tricky too. And so many 1001 books! I'm very jealous. Are you going on holidays again? Have a fabulous time. I so love organising my holiday reading (always too much of course).

    1. Yes, we are headed to Chicago this week to check on our Younger Son.

      And I'm on a 1001 roll. I have several more books that came in for me at the library. Hope to get to them soon.

  7. Every time I see Insurgent on someone's list I feel really guilty that I haven't read Divergent yet! (hopefully I'll get to it when I'm on mat leave and have more "at home" time. I read a lot when my daughters were wee). I hope you enjoy all of your Paris reads!

    Here is what I'm reading this week:

  8. Looks like both a great past week and a great upcoming week (I just read Insurgent and really enjoyed it). I keep meaning to read Parvana's Journey having loved the Breadwinner

    1. Funny, but we were actually supposed to read Breadwinner for 1001 Children's Books. I think I will end up reading Breadwinner, too.

  12. I've read that Then Again is a great book. Today I'm reading The Iliad and maybe a short story collection. Happy reading and have a safe trip.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Wow. The Iliad. It was required reading in a philosophy class I took in high school. That is some read!

  14. I should really pick up some of the books from the books to read before you grow up list. I'm never going to grow up! :)

  15. Hmm, I'd go with Insurgent (I loved that one, it was amazing! :D), and Beautiful Ruins (it's supposed to be fantastic! I wanna read it soon myself :D).

    Thanks for stopping by and visiting my blog, Deb. :D I hope that we've all helped you figure out which ones to take to Chicago. :D

    Happy Reading!

  16. I love the cover of Dairy Queen. Now I'm going to have to find out what that's all about. I see that Paris was a theme there - you have have some great reads lined up also. So many books, so little time, right?

    ReplyDelete
  17. Of those I have only read Smoking Seventeen, a series I love, and Dairy Queen which I thought was okay though YA so not really my thing. I'm intrigued by the Great Typo Hunt.

    Have a great reading week and trip
