This  is the story of my life lately. I’m a relaxed type of gal and this Go Go Go business is not to my liking. I don’t have nearly enough time for reading. Hmph. 

Currently Reading:

Ruby by Cynthia Bond


The Word Exchange by Alena Graedon
There’s a lot of buzz about this one. I’m looking forward to seeing what the fuss is all about.

  1. I just added The Word Exchange to my TBR, but my library doesn't have it yet. (Yes, I know it doesn't come out till Tuesday, but they'd at least have it in the system if they were in the process of getting it. I think I'll give it a few weeks and then put in a purchase request if they haven't jumped on the buzz themselves.)


  2. I'm feeling the same way – life is definitely getting in the way of my reading!!! I'm thinking of starting to do some mini-reviews of some of the older books I read (those published a few years ago) – still playing around with that, but thinking it might help me get caught up and keep me motivated to get the reviews written in a timely manner!!!I'm off to check out Tanya's piece – thanks for sharing!!!Have a great week!~Kristin @ Always With a Book


  3. No book has me excited right now. However, I am looking forward to reading The Storied Life of AJ Fikry by Gabrielle Zevin, about which I've been hearing good things…including from you, I think.


  4. I happen to really, REALLY like mini reviews. Both writing them and reading them. It leaves a bit more to the imagination for one thing. 😀 I think you'll really like Tanya's post. It opened my eyes!


  5. Busy is no fun!! Hope you're able to carve out some reading time. I used to leave for work earlier than I needed to just so I could have 30 minutes of reading time in the morning. I bet I looked so ridiculous reading in the parking garage at work.I just finished AJ Fikry and loved it. A book for book lovers–what's not to love? Hope you have a great week!


  6. You and me both! Last week was the week from hell as far as busy goes. It wasn't all bad stuff, but we were just constantly on the go. And so many meetings! Ugh. When I tried to read at night I fell asleep. Hope your busy week miraculously slows down!
