A Reading Life with Mailbox Monday


I'm going to forego my normal weekly post to focus more on my reading plans for the month.  There are a plethora of read-a-longs and events going on! So, here we go...

Read-a-Longs

Crime and Punishment at Unputdownables...a three month read-a-long

Stephen King's The Shining read-a-long, otherwise known as #shineon at Fizzy Thoughts

Continuing with Les Miserables at TuesBookTalk

Gone Girl at The Lost Entwife Read-Alongs on Goodreads

I'm behind on the Dark Tower series read-a-long that I'm hosting over at my Stephen King Challenge blog.  Still reading book three, The Waste Lands, and we're supposed to be starting book four, Wizard and Glass for February and March.  Eek!

Events/Read-a-Thons

Review Copy Clean-Up at Books, Biscuits and Tea...I'm hoping to read 3-4 review books, including The Arrow Chest by Robert Parry, Four Sisters, All Queens by Sherry Jones, and two others plus a book tour review toward the end of the month.

Wicked Valentine's Read-a-Thon, February 7 - 14 (#WWReadathon) hosted by My Shelf Confessions.  Of course, I'll be reading from the books I mentioned above.

I'm hoping to participate...big emphasis on hoping...in the Social Justice Theme Read at Resistance is Futile and French February at Delaisse.  I'm going to read The Plague by Albert Camus for both events.

Life News

During the Mini-Bloggiesta this weekend, I finally finished shelving and organizing my books.  I was going to post pictures, but my room is a mess.  I will try to post some pics later this week.


Mailbox Monday was created by Marcia and is being hosted by Unabridged Chick this month.  (You can click the book covers in the BookBox to view the book(s) on Amazon)

I apologize for word verification, but I turned it off and had close to 50 spam comments within 12 hours (nobody has time for that) so I had to turn it back on. Sorry!

  2. I really enjoyed Gone Girl! And what I feel live I've been saying over and over, is that everyone should read is ASAP, if only to make sure no one can spoil it for them.

  3. I don't know how you keep up with so many readalongs! I'm about to get back to Les Mis this week after taking a week off but I'm telling you there will be massive amounts of skimming going on!
