It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

This meme is hosted by Sheila (Book Journey)


It’s been a while since I participated in this meme, so here I am bearing books that you might want to add to your TBR lists (insert evil laugh) :) If you want to join the fun, please visit Sheila at Book Journey.

So far, I’ve read two books this month (click on the images to go to the book’s Goodreads page):

I have not finished writing my reviews, but for Stay Where You Are And Then Leave, you can read Nish’s review in her blog.

I’m currently reading a book of short stories by Kodi Scheer: “INCENDIARY GIRLS“.

This will be released tomorrow, April 8, 2014.
Incendiary Girls explores our baser instincts with vivid imagination and humor. In these stories, our bodies become strange and unfamiliar terrain, a medium for transformation. In “Fundamental Laws of Nature,” a doctor considers her legacy, both good and bad, when she discovers that her mother has been reincarnated as a thoroughbred mare. In the title story, a mischievous angel chronicles the remarkable life of a girl just beyond death’s reach.In Scheer’s hands, empathy and attachment are illuminated by the absurdity of life. When our bodies betray us, when we begin to feel our minds slip, how much can we embrace without going insane? How much can we detach ourselves before losing our humanity? Scheer’s stories grapple with these questions in each throbbing, choking, heartbreaking moment. – Goodreads

Before I say farewell (and finish this book), have you seen my fourth Armchair Travels post? I shared five books set in the Czech Republic. I finally posted my review for The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society and shared my favorite quotes from the book too.

How about you? What are you currently reading? Have you read any of the books I mentioned?

Wishing everyone a great week ahead! :)

  4. I need to read more collections of short stories. I read Tenth of December by George Saunders a couple months ago and really enjoyed most of those!

    I’m currently reading a graphic novel called Anya’s Ghost.

    • I need to read Tenth of December. I was actually planning to read it first before The Isle of Youth but then I opted for the latter. I’m going to read Anya’s Ghost for the Graphic Novel Challenge this year! I’ve heard good things about it and I hope I’ll enjoy it :)
