Okay, it's Monday.....{huge, long drawn out sigh...}what are you reading?

LOL - in this pic, he's really asking if he can have a popsicle, then he had to pose for a picture. Cause that's how granmas are. Always with the pics. Until the kids are about three. Back to the meme - It's Monday, What Are You Reading is hosted by Sheila of Book Journey. This is the one meme that I try to do every single week, only missing when I feel especially horrid. I enjoy this meme. Full guidelines are available at Book Journey.

Sigh - Mondays continue to be a little rough for me...although to be honest, Tuesdays are now my new Mondays. (I really need to retire, LOL)

I started out reading Scardown, but of course Anne Aguirre's Aftermath came out August 30, and if you've ever picked up a Sirantha Jax novel, then the chances are high that you have to buy each Sirantha Jax novel as they come out and DEVOUR them within a space of a day, or so. Raise your hands if you know what I mean. In my case, I got about halfway through within one night and then the rest of the week was taken up with activities that stopped me from reading. I have JUST finished

Next up is going back to reading Scardown by Elizabeth Bear, and then hopefully getting right into WorldWired the final Jenny book. Great Sci Fi books.

After that? who knows. I do know that I have about 100 books that I have been slowly buying (and have been gifted with) and hoping to read. Maybe I'll get into some of them. Hopefully, I'm still interested in them, as much as when I first bought them. There are times when I'm looking forward so much to reading certain books - especially debut novels, but then I'm disappointed in the writing style or the dialogue. Then again, there have been a high number of debut novels that I've enjoyed very much in the last couple years. Of those, I have the second and third in the series to look forward to. Already here. Waiting. For me to crack them open.

Soon, Books, Soon.

Important Public Service Announcement....
What if the Zombie Apocalypse started with kittens? Not so cute then, are they?


  1. Yup, yup ... I know the part about being interrupted ... that's what the last week and this week has been like ... so much so that I took much longer to finish re-reading Jane Eyre than I anticipated...

  2. I know what you mean about TBR pile. I now have a TBR book shelf. And it is getting full fast. I need a reading vacation where that is all I do!

  3. I've got a stack that is about as high as yours; all books I wanted at least enough to haul them home, enter a contest etc. and I keep wondering when I'll ever get around to them, considering the number of new books that enter the house weekly.

  4. I don't know the books, but I think the pictures are funny.
