Monday’s Minutes

“Monday’s Minutes” is a weekly post in which I track my bookish life.  All book covers are linked to Goodreads unless otherwise noted.

Currently Reading:

  • A Free Man of Color by Barbara Hambly
  • The Two Towers by J.R.R. Tolkien – for #FanspeakTheRing
  • In a Dark, Dark Wood by Ruth Ware

  • Welcome to Night Vale by Joseph Fink and Jeffrey Cranor
  • The Queen of the Damned by Anne Rice

  • Show Your Shelves Some Love: 49 out of 51
  • RIP XI: 6 books, at least 70 short stories – I took a break from the No Sleep podcast and started listening to Lore.  It is fantastic!

Total pages read: 243

Total # of books for the year: 69.  Mandatory overtime sucks, and that’s all I’m going to say about that.  I finally found time to finish The Queen of the Damned on Saturday, and though I had a lot going on this weekend, I took every spare minute I had to read In a Dark, Dark Wood.

What are you reading this week?

  1. Holy crap, 69 this year already? That’s impressive! I’m so jealous! What’s your goal?

    I’m working on a few books this week: #Girlboss, The Heartbeat Thief, & Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. Some of them are quicker reads than others. (;

    1. My original goal was 60, I think, but when I got close, I upped it to 75. I did almost 100 last year, but I knew this year would be slower once I was working full-time. However, I’m only able to read as much as I do because I don’t have anything else outside of work, friends, and blogging to keep me from turning pages 🙂
