The Sunday Salon: Reviewing the Day, the Week, the Month

The Day:

  • Yeah, well, so I've hardly read this Sunday. I don't know what happens to Sunday's lately, but not much reading that's for sure.

  • I started Story of a Girl by Sara Zarr and read have read a bit of it here and there.

  • I wanted to find time to read some more in the neglected books War and Peace... and Man and Wife, but no such luck.

  • I need to send an email to one of my book groups and tell them what we are reading this month, but I'm still not sure...

The Week:

  • This last week I hosted a blog tour on The 19th Wife, including a guest post by the author.

  • I got a replacement package from Amazon for Paper Towns and Rapunzel's Revenge.

  • I read Paper Towns.

  • I read Lavinia and went to book club where we discussed it.... a little bit.

  • I read Suite Scarlett and finally got it back to the library.

The Month (October Recap):

  • Jamaica Inn by Daphne duMaurier: Bereaved girl gets sent to aunt's and proceeds to get mixed up in infamous deeds.

  • Brisingr by Christopher Paolini: Eragon and Saphira travel around solving problems and learning things.

  • The 19th Wife by David Ebershoff: Two different 19th wives live not-so-wonderful lives.

  • Lavinia by Ursula LaGuin: Lavinia chooses her own husband based on a vision where her poet tells her what will happen in her life.

  • Suite Scarlett by Maureen Johnson: Scarlett's summer turns out more exciting than she thought!

Pathetic month... but some of these were pretty huge books! :)

  1. I had hoped to fit in more reading this weekend, but I didn't crack a book open yesterday. I did do better today.

    October turned out to be a good reading month for me. I hope November will follow suit.

    Have a great week!
