It's Monday! What are you reading?

I've known about "What are you reading? Mondays" (hosted by J. Kay's Book Blog) for a while, but only just decided that I need to play along.

I've been doing an atrocious job of keeping track of what books I've read so I'm going to skip the books-completed-last-week part for this week.

I'm currently actively reading
Beyond Black by Hilary Mantel (just started last night) and
The Manny by Holly Peterson (its fluorescent cover wore me down).

On the back burner I have:
Fun Home by Alison Bechdel (for lunchtime reading on days when there's no knitting),
Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell by Susanna Clarke (slowly slogging through this one - I want to like it so much more than I actually do), and
Miss Zukas and the Island Murders by Jo Dereske (another book set aside for lunchtime reading).


  1. Nice list. Here is mine

    I have started a book discussion forum on my blog called Cafe Blue. I hope you will visit and join.

  2. I have been wanting to read THE MANNY! Is it good so far?

  3. It's fun to check out what everyone is reading. You find some good books to add to the TBR.

  4. J.Kaye, The Manny is better than I thought it'd be. I'm really liking it so far (though I'm only on pg 40 or something like that)

  5. I hope The Manny lives up to its cover, lol.

  6. I've got Jonathan Strange on my TBR stack but its size has been putting me off. Have a great week!

  7. "The fluorescent cover wore me down" lol ... that's happened to me before.
    Happy reading :)
