It's Monday 10/26! What Are You Reading?

(Thanks to J. Kaye's Book Blog for starting What are you reading Monday)

October 26? Huh? Where am I? After more than three weeks spent sick and lying on the couch, I feel a bit like Rip Van Winkle this morning. But, I am up! It's been more than 24 hours now, so I'm hoping this trend of feeling OK continues. Just in time - my husband caught the virus our sons had last week.

Anyway, it was a good reading week:
  • I finished The Circle of Gold by Guillaume Prevost, last book in the middle-grade/teen The Book of Time trilogy - very exciting conclusion!
  • I started The Heretic's Daughter by Kathleen Kent, about the Salem witch trials, for one of my book groups. It is haunting, horrifying, and compelling (and based on a true story). I'm glad I wasn't around in 1692!
  • I'm still listening to Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick - didn't get very far with it last week because both of my kids were home sick, too, but I have a long car ride this week, so I should finish it.
If you're interested in the kids' and teen books our family is reading, check out Great Books for Kids and Teens.

Book reviews to come this week - hurray!

What are YOU reading this week?


  1. The Heretic's Daughter is on my wishlist, I'd like to get to it soon! I enjoyed Hush, Hush but it wasn't without issue for me. Happy reading :-)

    So glad you are feeling better, I do hope that continues. Living with chronic illness myself, I understand how difficult it can be to function at even a basic level when flare up's occur.

  2. The Heretic's Daughter is on my TBR list. Happy reading.

  3. I was just looking at the Heretic's Daughter and wondering if I should pick it up - I look forward to your input

  4. Glad you are recovering. I also suffer with chronic illness and I'm in a flare now. Heading to the doctor today hoping to figure out what is going on.

    The Heretic's Daughter sounds so good. Since I just finished The Physick Book of Deliverance Dane, I am really interested in the Salem Witch Trials so I'll have to check this out.

  5. I finished Hush Hush this past week --it was really good!

  6. Sorry, meant to also say that I'm glad you are feeling better!! I'm still trying to get my latest bout to settle down -- it seems like this round is not going to ever at this rate --sigh.

  7. I really enjoyed The Heretic's Daughter. Good to hear u r better Sue.

  8. Sue, I'm glad you're starting to feel better. Hope your kids do too. Take it easy!

  9. The Heretic's Daughter looks really good. I'd love to read this one - I may just have to buy it for myself! LOL

    Have a great week! :D
