It’s Monday and I’m reading Hag-Seed


It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is a place to meet up and share what you have been, are and about to be reading over the week. This meme started with J Kaye’s Blog   and then was taken up by Sheila from Book Journey. Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn at the Book Date



My 5yo has been going for weekly piano lessons for a few months now and he’s liking it so far. His piano school had an annual recital and while he chose not to take part (he said, maybe the next one when he’s learnt more songs), we decided to attend, so that he can see other kids playing music. And I think it was a good experience, to see kids about his age playing onstage, as well as older kids with more advanced songs.

The husband was away in Seattle for two nights, so Thursday and Friday was kinda tiring for me! And I feel like I have so many blog posts I want to write, but I just don’t really want to be sitting at the computer typing things. I’d rather just be reading my book and relaxing on the couch! How do you guys find time to blog? I started this year with a review every week, but I’ve definitely slacked on that bit. But what is a book blog if there is no mention of books and book thoughts?










More of The Night Manager (love it) and Mad Men


My loan on This is the story of a happy marriage just expired!! Again!! I find it hard to listen to audiobooks with my two kids around but I try… 😛



I had pancakes (leftover from yesterday) for breakfast



I’m sure many of you have seen this Lit Hub post on How Many Books will you Read Before You Die? already, but just in case you haven’t. Yes, read it. And then feel a little sad, at least I did, knowing that I may only read 4000+ books in the rest of my lifetime.

Lit Hub again! This time with an excerpt from Fire! The Zora Neale Hurston Story

Caustic Cover Critic highlights an interesting small press releasing translated lit.

Fantastic short reads – the diverse edition



  1. Ugh yes how DO I find time to blog? I have two blog posts in my drafts folder with nothing written apart from the post title, and I can’t bring myself to sit down and actually write my thoughts about the books in question. I am sure I had many thoughts about them as I was reading!


  2. I wrote about not blogging in my post too. At least we can talk about the books we are reading right now!

    Hooray for Margaret Atwood. I hope you are enjoying Hag-Seed!


  3. I’m glad I’m not the only one who has trouble finding a time to listen to audios. I really don’t even bother, because I know it would just be too frustrating. I’m thinking most people do it when they commute, but I have no commute!
