It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is hosted by Sheila @ Book Journey.

Happy Monday my book loving friends! 

Here’s what I’ve been up to this week:

The most exciting news ever? I’ve been blogging for 6 months!  <~~ Clicky click to see my little celebration and to enter a giveaway on The Relentless Reader’s Facebook page.


Itsy bitsy reviews of 5 recent reads  (Including Gone Girl and Love Anthony)

The Richest Woman in America by Janet Wallach


Flesh by Khan Ha (Review to be posted on Jan 23rd)

The Revised Fundamentals of Caregiving by Jonathan Evison

Currently Reading: 

Birdsong by Sebastian Faulks I picked this up at my library’s book sale a few months back. Let me point out that yes, this is the copy I own and no, I don’t like television or movie tie-in covers.


I have a few review copies that I’m itching to read, but most of the release dates aren’t until February or March. Maybe it’s time to start requesting library books again? Since my self-imposed library ban I’ve made a GINORMOUS list of books that other bloggers have reviewed and that I desperately want to read.

Other Blog Business:

Book Feature: The Siren of Paris by David LeRoy

I decided to join in The 2013 TBR Pile Challenge. You might want to as well? It’s a good one!

It was another great week here, not least because the Packers beat Detroit on Sunday night. Woot! I love watching snowy games. Know what else I love? Packer fans.

  1. I'm with you on movie tie-ins, have to say though, in this case it doesn't look so bad. The picture is quite atmospheric. I'd say that's reason enough to start requesting library books again 🙂 Either that or read the review copies early.


  2. Wow, six months! You do such a great job and don't seem like a fairly new blogger at all! I had blogged for a year before I really started to catch on to the community…lolCongrats! And I'm going to check out your event.I joined a TBR Challenge for the New Year, too; mine was Mt. TBR 2013, but same idea. Enjoy!Here's MY MONDAY MEMES POST


  3. Birdsong is one of my favorite books! I loved it. However, I watched the PBS film after reading it and the storyline is so different. I know that it is difficult to compress such a story into two hours and while the film is lovely to watch, I wish it would have followed the book. I agree that books shouldn't be marketed with the film covers!Have a great week!Rebecca @ The Key to the Gate


  4. Gah! I wish I could get into Sebastian Faulks! I have tried and tried, but no dice. He and I…we just don't get along. *sobs* Maybe when I grow up, I'll try again. lol


  5. Yes, great win for the Pack! Did you see that ELF was there? ( scroll to bottom… that mustache!) Are you going to wear your Packer gear for Aaron Rodgers Day 12/12/12? I'm going to wear my #12 jersey to work on Wednesday!Have a great reading week 🙂


  6. I did see that he was there, lol. What could be better than Will Ferrell AND the Pack?? Not much 🙂 12/12/12! Oh my word, I didn't even realize!! Heck yes I will be all geared up that day!! Thanks for the heads up!


  7. My parents were at the game too, and said it was super fun, especially with the snow—like sitting in a snowglobe! If I get teased at work on Wednesday, I'll just have to do THE BELT in their faces. haha!


  8. When I saw the snow I wished so HARD that I was there! Do the belt baby, do the belt! I'm so stinking far from Green Bay 😦 Boo! But I am going to go see the Packers play the Vikings on the 30th when they play in Minneapolis. That's a bit closer for me 🙂


  9. We were watching the game, too, and it was great. Snow, wind, loyal fans, Aaron Rogers doing the Lambeau leap–made for a wonderful evening. Thanks for reviewing The Richest Woman In America–I want to read this! Nothing like a biography of a smart woman who overcomes a bad childhood to become . . .herself. Thanks, and have a great week!


  10. You didn't get the image of the guy with the icicles all over his face? That one was definitely unique, although I have no idea how he saw anything!You crack me up, lady! Most bloggers go on a book-buying ban, and here you are on a library ban! I love it!


  11. I saw that guy, ha ha! Creative outfit but good question, how did he see anything? LOLI used to pick up 6/7/8 books at a time from the library but since I got behind on reviews I can't do that anymore. That makes me a bit sad 😦 Boo!
