Hosted by Sheila at Book Journey. We share books that we've read over the past week and those we hope to read this week.
I don't know what my deal was...but I was having a serious reading funk! I'd pick up a book and it just wouldn't hold my interest. But, I'd feel guilty and force myself to continue (at a snail's pace) because I'm a 1-book-at-a-time kind of person. Then, I'd finally give up, vow to return to it, and repeat the process. Ugh, I'm pretty sure it's me - and not the books. Anyways, I started about 5 different books but only finished one measly title. Another Georgette Heyer novel - Cotillion (which I quite enjoyed)!
Hopefully I can get myself out of this funk and finish all of the books I've started (or at least some of them). I'm going to try to get back into the swing of things with:
- World War Z by Max Brooks...I'd really like to finish this one :)
- Doc by Mary Doria Russell
- and I'd really like to read my new Ann Patchett book (see below)!
Mailbox Monday is a touring meme where book bloggers share their bookish acquisitions from the week prior. It is hosted this month by Bluestocking.
This week I acquired two ARCs:
First up, State of Wonder by Ann Patchett (courtesy of the publisher). I'm really excited about this one! I've never read her before but have heard amazing things about her writing.
Also, I received The Language of Flowers by Vanessa Diffenbaugh (via LibraryThing). I've read several rave reviews from bloggers about this one...so now I'm doubly excited!
