It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

It's that time again!  It's the time of visiting many different people and attending many different events.  We had several Christmas parties to go to this weekend and had a great time.  We took a cab to our friend's party on Saturday night, and although, as a family, we've travelled all over the place, you'd think my kids have never been in a taxi before.  They were checking out all of the gizmos and gadgets they could find and it drove me nuts.  But I got over it, and we had fun nonetheless.

We were hit with another snowstorm on Sunday, and I am somewhat disappointed I did not get another snowday today as I could use the time to mark and get some things together before the holidays.  However, we are under a snowsquall watch, so a snowday tomorrow is not out of the realm of possibilities. When almost two-thirds of our student population is bused, snowdays are good as students don't come to school.  I know I shouldn't be thinking this way, but I have a pile of marking sitting on my desk that needs to get done, and I could use the time to do it.  Plus, driving in this weather is giving me a headache.  We have a lot of snow already and it's not even officially winter yet.   It does make the Christmas lights look really pretty at night, though!!!! We're going for a walk tonight to check out the Christmas lights and get into the festive season. 

I am looking forward to two weeks of holidays at Christmas as I have a ton of reading to catch up on.  I didn't get as much done this weekend as planned because of the various festivities and activities, but hopefully I will get more done this weekend.  With two more parties to go however, we'll have to see.

What I Read This Week:

Last Exit in New Jersey by C.E. Grundler

Revolution by Jennifer Donnelly - I absolutely loved this book, but I adore reading anything about the French Revolution anyways and young adult, so this was right up my alley. 

What I am Currently Reading:

Nightshade by Andrea Cremer

Indulgence in Death by J.D. Robb

Remarkable Creatures by Tracy Chevalier

What I am Planning on Reading:

To be honest, I don't really know at this point.  I've got a pile of books that need to be reviewed, but I am in the mood for something that I really want to read for myself, so I might choose something off the shelf next week just for something different and give myself a break.   I've been wanting to read Book 1 of Vampire Academy for a long time so I might just dig into that for fun. 


  1. I was sick over the weekend but I got some reading done.

  2. My husband thought he'd have a snow day today as well, but nope! I can't wait to get to Revolution.

  3. My kids are DYING for a snow day!! But only a few flakes here and there so far in Delaware.

    Sounds like you've read some good ones lately. I hope you get your snow day tomorrow so you can get caught up and maybe even enjoy some reading!


  4. I wish I would have been paying attention to Revolution. It's gotten such great reviews and I love historical fiction.
    Happy reading!
