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:

  • The Silmarillion by J.R.R. Tolkien
  • A Walk in the Woods by Bill Bryson
  • A Philosophy of Walking by Frédéric Gros
  • The Book of Night with Moon by Diane Duane
  • John Saturnall’s Feast by Lawrence Norfold
  • Dreams of Gods and Monsters by Laini Taylor





Total pages read this week: 345

Total books for the year: 90 of 95.  I was in a mood most foul earlier in the week and went on Litsy to ask for book recommendations.  My request was for stories full of Buffy-like ass-kicking characters, and that’s how I ended up reading The Secret Hour.  So far, it has hit the spot perfectly even though there hasn’t been much ass-kicking yet.  I’m nearly done with it, and once I am, I’ll catch up with the Silmarillion for #LOTRChapteraDay.  I should be finished with that by the end of this week.  Then I’ll be trying to finish the rest of my current reads before the start of #COYER on December 16th.  Speaking of #COYER, I’ve been preparing by finally, and slowly getting all of my books scanned into Goodreads.  Once I’m done, I’ll also be fully prepped for next year’s #ShelfLove.
