It's Monday, What Are You Reading?


I've fallen off the cart. But I'm hopping back on! I've read a few books since the last time I was online, but my reviewing pace is dismal. Not to worry, they're coming, they're coming!

This January, I read:
  • The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern, a beautifully descriptive book that I read rather slowly -- ahh magic, the circus, and a love story. What's not to like?
  • The Persecution of Mildred Dunlap by Paulette Mahurin, how a national issue can impact on a small town. With its incisive look at small-town communication (read: gossip) and dynamics, this is quite the rocker. [Check out: Friday 56/Book Beginnings and it's author's guest post]

I am still reading The Little Book of Heartbreak by Meghan Laslocky and am finding love and heartache quite ... entertaining. Check out my Friday 56/Book Beginnings post.


That's it for me. Please don't forget to check out Bookmark Monday, the 2013 edition! And join in, because I know you guys must have a bookmark stashed away somewhere! :)

  1. I liked Night circus- and I agree, I think you have to read it slowly. I enjoyed it but kind of hoped for a different ending.

    Have a lovely reading week! Whatcha readin' this week @ the Brunette Librarian and Don't forget to enter to win Philippa Gregory's "Changeling"

    1. I wanted to like it more, honestly. I agree about the ending ... with that build up I think it could've gone many ways.

  2. I thought The Night Circus was one of those rare books that deserved all of the hype. I'm glad you enjoyed it too!

    1. True dat. Sometimes there is hype for a reason! f you haven't already, I suggest you read Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrel - between that and Night Circus, Jonathan Strange wins it hands down!

  3. I really need to read The Night Circus! Now that the hype has died down a bit, maybe I should give it a try. Glad to hear you liked it!
