It's Monday! What are you reading?


It's Monday, What Are You Reading? is a weekly meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journey, that is guaranteed to add to your reading list.

I didn't get as much reading done as I wanted this week. School surprised me with an essay assignment on top of the enormous workload we have weekly, so I was buried under a metric ton of schoolwork. I did get a little reading done, but not all that I wanted. 

Read Last Week:

I am also a big chicken this year! I don't know if being pregnant makes you paranoid, but lately things that normally wouldn't scare me, do. So I have been settling for reading slightly less scary books, but with  witchy/mystery/supernatural themes.

  


Death of a Gossip by M.C. Beaton: This series is so perfect for me right now, I am enjoying my rereading.

Shadow Spell by Nora Roberts: I don't usually read much Roberts, but I am really liking this series! It's fun and has that element of scary I am craving without being too intense.

Kiss of the Spider Woman by Manuel Puig:  Our book club book for the month.

Reading this Week:

  
The Turn of the Screw by Henry James: A classic - let's hope that it doesn't put me over the edge!

Angel Stone by Juliet Dark: A nice little supernatural diversion.

Posted Last Week:

I am really going to write some reviews this week!!


Watching:

Gilmore Girls (season 3!), Supernatural, Vampire Diaries and out of the corner of my eye, The Walking Dead and American Horror Story

  2. I feel like I need to start reading more scary books now that Halloween is nigh! I'm also considering watching Gilmore Girls since it's getting a lot of buzz!

    1. Lol I was feeling the pressure myself! Halloween is my favorite holiday, and here I am, not spending much time with it this year. Lol.

      I absolutely love Gilmore Girls!

  3. I have been reading more suspense this month but I don't like things that are too scary either. I will have to try M.C. Beaton's mysteries sometime. I hope you get more time to read this week. Last week I just finished one book and two novellas and I usually read 3 books a week. I just haven't been motivated. I've been watching more TV. Yesterday I was planning to read my book discussion book but I only read one chapter and spent the rest of the day watching old episodes of Downton Abbey and Gilmore Girls. :)

    1. Yeah, the whole scary thing isn't working for me this year. I love the Hamish Macbeth series - I think it is because it takes place in a small town, with quirky characters, much like Gilmore Girls. I am a sucker for that setting. :)

      I have been watching more tv as well. Yesterday I had plenty of time to read yesterday as well but I snuggled up under some blankets on the couch and watched a marathon of Gilmore Girls episodes instead. Sounds like we had a similar day!

  4. It wasn't a big reading week for me either... different reasons though. Turn of the Screw is a strange book. I've read it twice (possible three times?) and had a different idea about what happened each time.

  5. I've been reading some mysteries but nothing scary, as it turns out. I thought I would too. I like the cover of the MC Beaton book, it has that village look to it...

    Nice apple orchard pics! I love getting donuts from those places... :)

    1. It's just not the year for it, for me. I haven't even watched a scary movie yet! I plan to watch something Halloweeny soon, but it will be more on the level of The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown, or Disney's Sleepy Hollow. :)

      Thanks! And yes, the donuts! I think they are the best part! Lol.

I love hearing from people, don't be shy! I would love to hear what you think! I always reply back, although it takes me a bit longer these days due to the little guy.
