It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?, hosted by prolific blogger Book Journey is where we gather to share what we have read this past week and what we plan to read this week. It is a great way to network with other bloggers, see some wonderful blogs, and put new titles on your reading list.
This is what happened this past week on Booklover Book Reviews:
- My first week back at work after my three week holiday was a hard slog. Why do we do this to ourselves??? I was so exhausted each night that very little reading happened…. well I tried to read as I normally would but I soon found myself waking with a start, the book I had been reading in bed having fallen on my head – ouch!
- The only significant fiction consumption I managed was via audio during my commute. I am now halfway through Yann Martel’s Life of Pi – enjoying it immensely.
- This was a week of firsts however. My first ever guest post (my tongue-in-cheek musings on what Tolstoy the person might have been like) appeared on Desert Book Chick as part of Amanda’s Classics Month.
- I also hosted my first ever guest poster on Booklover Book Reviews – Tony from Tony’s Reading List shared with us his thoughts on Australian Authors as part of a series of guest posts I’m hosting in support of the Aussie Author Challenge.
- I also posed the question ‘Do diagrams and maps have a place in novels?‘ and ‘found another nifty way to find new authors you may like’.
So, what’s on the cards this week?
- I look forward to listening to the second half of Life of Pi by Yann Martel during my daily commute and hopefully I’ll stay awake at night long enough this week to finish Reilly’s The Six Sacred Stones (physical book) and perhaps(?) finish Tolstoy’s Anna Karenina (Kindle).
- I will be welcoming Booksploring to Booklover Book Reviews on Wednesday – pop by then to hear who her favourite Australian authors are.
- And, if I really get this work-life balance thing back in check I might just have time to post my review of The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet’s Nest.
Have a great week!
