Welcome to It’s Monday! What Are You Reading, hosted by Book Journey! This is a great way to plan out your reading week and see what others are currently reading as well… you never know where that next “must read” book will come from!
I actually made a ton of progress this week on my TBRs, finishing two books for review and another off my personal TBR pile. Also worth noting, I’m at 96/100 on my 2012 Reading Challenge, so hopefully I’ll be able to wrap that up within a week or so! I love being early for a deadline. Speaking of deadlines … just barely squeaking by on NaNoWriMo. I’m hitting all the daily numbers, and giving myself an extra 200 words when possible, but when I see all these overachievers who are either done already, or 10k or so words ahead, I’m in awe. And also, I kind of hate them a little.
In the Woods by Tana French. See my review from yesterday – a great read, extremely well-written. Highly recommend for mystery/thriller fans.
The Vanity Game by H.J. Hampson. Read my review on Literary R&R.
How to Understand Economics in One Hour by Marshall Payn. It took me less than an hour, and I definitely understand economics better than I did before (read: not at all). Cheesy dialogue throughout, but would be a good book for non-econ majors forced to take the class to graduate. I would have liked this book when I was in school.
Afterwards by Rosemund Lupton. I’m only about 50 pages in, but I’m completely taken by the eerie premise and high emotional impact.
Falling – Girl with Broken Wings by J. Bennett. I’m reading this one for Literary R&R and I just downloaded it last night. I read the first couple pages so far and that’s it.
I’ve heard good things about Tana French. And I was even asked about her books this morning at tennis! Weird when real life and blog life intersect.
I heard mixed reviews about Afterwards. I liked Sister, though.
Have a great week!
In the Woods looks sounds like a creepy good read from your review. I think I need to check it out. Good luck on NaNoWriMo! I had seriously considered participating this year but chickened out. I hope you enjoy your week!

Wow! The cover for Afterwards is a bit haunting is’t it. I need to go check it out.
Very haunting! I’m loving this one so far. Very unusual!
Hmm…That’s interesting, you’re the third person lately I’ve seen who has recommended “In The Woods.” Must be a great book. I might have to peruse it soo. Thanks for sharing! 🙂
Afterwards sounds very interesting. And yes, In the Woods is fantastic! I really need to get to the rest of the series!
Ooh! I didn’t realize it was a series. I am asking for the rest of her books for Christmas, so I guess I will find out soon!
