It's Monday 12/24! What Are You Reading?

Busy, busy, busy holiday week!  No time for blogging. I probably shouldn't even by typing this, but I couldn't stand to miss a Monday post!  So, just a quick one, then back to wrapping gifts and cooking.
  • I finished reading Time and Again by Jack Finney, the last of my Christmas gift books from LAST Christmas!  I loved this novel about traveling back in time to 1882 NYC so much that it's characters are still with me days after I finished it - that's the sign of a great book!
  • Now I am FINALLY reading The Fault in Our Stars by John Green, one of the year's top YA (and adult) novels that I have been wanting to read for many months - fitting it in just before the end of the year!
  • My husband, Ken, finished Defending Jacob by William Landay last week and loved it! He said he can't tell me much about it without giving away surprises - I can't wait to read it!
  • Ken has now started The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness - both he and I have been wanting to read this trilogy for a long time - our son says it is great!
  • Jamie, 18, is still re-reading City of Fallen Angels by Cassandra Clare, book 4 in the Mortal Instruments series. He's been busy playing with his brother and cousins so hasn't had much reading time since coming home.
  • I am still listening to Wildwood by Colin Meloy and Carson Ellis, a middle-grade audio book, though I don't have much time to listen with a house full of people!
What are you and your family reading this week?

(What are you reading Monday is hosted by Sheila at Book Journey, with a kid/teen version hosted by Teach Mentor Texts.)


  1. Even busy, you and your family are still getting lots of reading done. The Fault in Our Stars and Wildwood are both languishing on my TBR mountain. Here is my Monday Report. Have a great holiday!

  2. The Fault In Our Stars and The Knife of Never Letting Go are both books I want to get to. Probably not this year, though.

    Merry Christmas!

  3. I haven't gotten to that John Green yet..I don't know what I'm waiting for! :) Happy Holidays and happy reading too!

  4. Hope you love the Chaos Walking series as much as I did. Defending Jacob is on my fav of 2012 list. Merry Christmas.

  5. I missed Monday - boo - but Merry Christmas! And I'm finally getting to A Fault in Our Stars too.

  6. Oh, I can't wait to hear more about Defending Jacob! Fun!
