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!

  1. Interesting mix of titles. Looking forward to your review of "Watership Down" - i have (very hazy) memories of seeing the movie a long time ago.

    Have a lovely reading week :) here are my reads:

  2. Those are new to me but I hope you enjoyed and enjoy them!

    Here's my Monday Wrapup

    Have a GREAT day!

  3. Oh, you've finished Watership Down already! I need to get a wriggle on, still only about half way through. Interesting to see that your cover calls it- America's Beloved #1 Bestseller. I wonder why they really needed to do that, given that it's overwhelmingly English? I don't know anything at all about that Odd Fish book, but love the cover.

    1. To motivate me to finish it this weekend, I went ahead and wrote up this little blog post, showing that I'd finished it. That got me reading!

    2. I wonder how Richard Adams, an American, I suppose, wrote a book with such a strong English setting.

  4. I'm looking forward to your review of Watership Down. This is one I started a few years back and gave up on.

  5. Oh, I haven't heard of any of those books, but they sound interesting! Especially the Order of Odd Fish!
    Happy Reading :)

  6. Very nice! Lots of familiar titles. I own Watership Down but haven't read it yet. I watched the film adaptation, but kind of fell asleep halfway through. Hehe. I also own the Odd Fish Book but haven't read it yet. Great reads! :)

  7. Hi there, I'm not sure whether my previous comment went through. Do feel free to delete this one in case this is a duplication.
    I have Watership Down but haven't read it yet. I watched the film adaptation with my daughter and fell asleep halfway through (hehehe). I also have The Odd Fish book lying unloved in my bookshelves but as per usual, I haven't read it yet. Do let me know how you found it.

  8. I haven't read Watership Down, but it definitely rings a, oh, I should have read this one!

    Enjoy your week, and here'sMY MONDAY MEMES POST

  9. I am reading a Christian Fiction / Mystery called You Don't Know Me by Susan May Warren. So far - really good. Only a few pages in, but can't wait to get back to it.

  10. Quite a mix - always fun to read stuff from different genres :)

    Happy reading this week! Whatcha readin' this week @ the Brunette Librarian :)

  11. I have seen the movie for Watership Down but I admit I haven't read it.

    Thanks for stopping by.

  12. Skyjack sounds interesting! I find that DB Cooper story pretty fascinating :) I can't believe I've never read Watership Down..eeek!

    Have a great week of reading!

  13. The Order of Odd-Fish has such a cool cover. It sounds like a fun read too. There's nothing like being transported to a magical world. :)

  14. Oooo, Skyjack looks good. I'm reading (rereading actually) Adam Gopnik's Paris to the Moon. I read it a few years ago (not that many) and unfortunately, don't remember a thing. I should just go in and reread ALL my books and save a lot on my book-buying budget for the year.

  15. Ooh I love the cover for Skyjack - hope the book is just as good.

  16. I am currently reading Death's Dream Kingdom - which is a surprisingly good read. Great first paragraph! :) Thank you for stopping by Between the Bind!


  17. I'm in a really bad reading slump so I have no idea what I'm going to read this week. I hope you have a good week.

  18. I'm still reading the same books as last week: The Passage (Justin Cronin) and The Thorn Birds (Colleen McCullough). I've always wanted to try Watership Down. Off to see if my library has it on audio.

  19. Those books are unfamiliar to me but Watership Down looks interesting!
