It’s Monday!  What Are You Reading? is hosted by Sheila at Book Journey.

I was busy last week and didn’t get to post on Monday. So over the past two weeks I’ve



Blameless by Gail Carriger

The Peach Keeper by Sarah Addison Allen


Currently Reading:

East of Eden by John Steinbeck

Ballad of the Whiskey Robber: A True Story of Bank Heists, Ice Hockey, Transylvanian Pelt Smuggling, Moonlighting Detectives, and Broken Hearts by Julian Rubinstein

Curse of the Blue Tattoo: Being an Account of the Misadventures of Jacky Faber, Midshipman and Fine Lady by L. A. Meyer, read by Katherine Kellgren

Up Next:

I think I’m almost finished with Curse of the Blue Tattoo, so I’ll be choosing a new audiobook soon. I did listen to some of When You Are Engulfed in Flames by David Sedaris on my road trip last weekend, but I accidentally packed my iPod on the trip back, so we didn’t get to finish it. I’ll resume it next. I just requested The Invention of Hugo Cabret at the library, so I’ll read it if I finish East of Eden.

What are you reading this week?

  1. I enjoyed a lot The Invention of Hugo Cabret. on my review there's also the link to the cool website. and do you know the movie by Scorsese is coming out around Thanksgiving!

  2. So many great books here I don't know how to start commenting! I have read a Gail Carringer book, and I really liked it, even though I started out of order. I loved Peach Keeper, and I am a huge fan of Jim Butcher. 🙂

  3. I love Rapunzel's Revenge and it's sequel. I keep hoping she'll write a third one. I know it's not immediately likely given how busy she's been but I continue to hope.

    Three-quarters of what I read this week was in the form of children's picture books. Please come see what they were.

  4. I have both The Peach Keeps and Anna Karenina on my tbr list. One of these days I will get to both of them!

    Stop by and see what I have going on this week at Always With a Book

  5. East of Eden is one of my favorites!!! The Peach Keeper is on my wish list and am glad to see you finished Anna Karenina. It is a huge read!!! I read it in school and I remember it took almost a whole trimester but kept us going because we have the every other day discussions. I commend you for taking this on without it being required reading as I feel it is one of the books everyone should read in their lifetime. When I saw you were reading it I truly thought about a reread but my reading schedule is just too full, but maybe someday.

    Have a great week!!!

  6. Oh, I can't wait to hear what you thought of Sarah Addison Allen's newest book! I really enjoyed it. Also, I'd love to read The Invention of Hugo Cabaret soon, before the movie!

    Hope you have a fabulous reading week and if you get a second stop by to see what I've been reading at There's A Book! 🙂

  7. I still haven't seen The Help movie but maybe next weekend; I adored the audiobook. The Peach Keeper is on my Mount TBR.

    Have a great week and happy reading 🙂

  8. I liked The Peach Keeper and Blameless (of course I'm a huge Gail Carriger fan so that is no surprise!). I've heard that The Curse of the Blue Tattoo is excellent on audio. I've been meaning to try that series.

    I enjoyed your movie review of The Help. I loved the book and movie and I want to listen to the audio version since Octavia Spencer does the voice for Minnie too.

    Have a great week and I hope you enjoy your reading 🙂
