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:

  • Becoming Odyssa by Jennifer Pharr Davis
  • The Book of Lost Things by John Connolly
  • The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien

  

Finished:

  • Not the Killing Type by Lorna Barrett

Total pages read this week: 417

Total books for the year: 87 of 90.  I’ve only got 3 more books to go to reach my reading goal for the year.  I’ve started my annual read of The Hobbit, which should go by quickly, and I plan on reading A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens before Christmas (as I also do every year), so that leaves me with one book to finish before the 31st.  I was hoping to finish The Book of Lost Things this weekend, but it looks like that will continue to be my “bus book” despite how much I’m enjoying it.

Total books for the year: 85 of 90.  Yesterday was the last day of the #ThanksgivingReadathon, and I’m now only 5 books away from my annual reading goal.  I’m still not sure how I’m going to finish 5 books in what is now just over a month, but the office where I work shuts down for the rest of the year right before Christmas so I figure I’ll have plenty of reading time then.  Until then, I will be trying to make up all of the hours I missed from being sick.

Total books for the year: 84 of 90.  Today’s post is late due to me being sick (again!) For some reason, Goodreads counted my DNF books into the number of books I’ve read this year.  I was able to fix the issue, and the number of books I’ve read this year is a bit lower than I thought.  I’m still 5 books ahead of schedule according to Goodreads, but I’m not sure how I’m going to finish 6 books in less than 2 months.

Total books for the year: 85 of 90.  I think this might be the first week of the year in which I don’t have any ongoing reading challenges and I also didn’t finish any books.  It might actually be the first time in the history of this blog.  Thankfully, that will change soon as I’m over halfway through with Anne of the Island and there is a Thanksgiving reading challenge coming up soon and #COYER starting in December.

Total books for the year: 85 of 90.  I finished Hex in time for Halloween and the Boyfriend and I also finished the 2nd season of “American Horror Story.”  I was sick most of the week though, so I didn’t get to dress up for work.  Instead, I was stuck at home feeling like garbage.  We watched “Hocus Pocus,” ate soup, and had some candy corn before I went back to bed.

Total books for the year: 82 of 90.   I love the #Readathon in October!  I get to catch up on all my dark, creepy, and scary books and I get a huge boost towards my reading goals.  I’ve completed my goals for #RIP and I’m only 8 books away from reaching my annual Goodreads goal.  Also, my TBR mountain is now under 700 books!

Total books for the year: 79 of 90.   The Boyfriend and I finished the 1st season of “American Horror Story.”  We also watched “Coraline” this weekend since he had never seen it.  I decided to start watching “Supernatural” again, but I won’t be getting through too many episodes before Halloween since I only watch it when the Boyfriend isn’t home.  This week, I’ll be putting together my #Readathon stack, and I’m hoping to finish ‘Salem’s Lot so I can focus on shorter books.

Total books for the year: 77 of 90.  The Boyfriend and I started watching “American Horror Story.” The first couple of episodes were really weird and we weren’t sure if we wanted to continue, but we also really wanted to find out what was going on!  I also spent most of the weekend reading Roald Dahl’s Book of Ghost Stories.  Though none of them have scared me, they are delightfully creepy.
