MONDAY MEMES — MAILBOX & WHAT ARE YOU READING? — NOV. 1

 

Good morning, and welcome to our Monday Memes, in which we share about the books we receive and/or buy, and the books we’ve read and are reading.

Mailbox Monday is hosted this month by Knitting & Sundries.

What Are You Reading? is hosted by Book Journey.

 

 

MAILBOX MONDAY:

 

This week was an empty mailbox for me, but I bought a book at the Barnes & Noble bargain table.

How To Be Single, was written by Liz Tuccillo, who also wrote “He’s Just Not That Into You.”

One woman explores how women around the world are dealing with being single.

WHAT ARE YOU READING?

 


This past week I finished:

1) Falling Home, by Karen White (review)

2)  My Nest Isn’t Empty, It Just Has More Closet Space, by Lisa Scottoline (review)

Ongoing:

The Lost Hours, by Karen White

 

Upcoming Activities:

November 1-November 30, I’ll be participating in NaNoWriMo, and you’ll be able to follow my updates at Creative Moments.

 

Books Up This Week:

1)  The Shadow Man, by Mary Gordon

2)  Bitter in the Mouth, by Monique Truong

 

A Daughter’s Search for Her Father—He died when she was seven years old, and she thought she knew him.  Thirty years later, she begins to ask who he really was.

 

 

Linda Hammerick has a special yet burdensome gift–she experiences words as tastes.

 

*****

Since I’ll be busy with NaNoWriMo, my blogging activities will probably fall off a bit.  I will try to keep reading, though.

What are the rest of you doing this week?  Is anybody else participating in NaNoWriMo?  I hope you’ll stop by and share.

    • Thanks, Mary…It’s been an intense couple of days, mentally planning out some things to do first, while not being able to write anything down yet (except my outline, character sketches, and scenes). Now that it’s Nov. 1, I can begin!

      I think I’ll enjoy How To Be Single….thanks for stopping by.

  1. I got How to Be Single from the library once and my boyfriend was horrified. He thought I was planning on leaving him. LOL. I never did read it since I just took it back to ease his mind.

    • I guess it’s not all that new, since it was on the bargain table. I hadn’t ever heard of it, but of course I’ve heard of her other book (He’s Just Not That Into You).

      Thanks for stopping by, Jessica.

  2. I should probably read How To Be Single 🙂 hope it’s an amusing read! I’ve seen Falling Home on a few blogs this week, it went straight on my wishlist, sounds like my cup of tea. Have a wonderful week, happy reading and all the best with NaNoWriMo 🙂
