It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

Books Completed Last Week
I read three books last week: In Praise of Stay-at-Home Moms, Dr. Laura Schlessinger; Iodine, Haven Kimmel; The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, May Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows. I'm hoping to post reviews of all of these books this week.

Books I'm Currently Reading
Yesterday I started reading The Overachievers: The Secret Lives of Driven Kids, by Alexandra Robbins. It's so fascinating, I couldn't put it down! That doesn't usually happen to me with nonfiction books. Usually its only novels that I can't put down. Also on tap for this week is American Wife, by Curtis Sittenfeld. I read Sittenfeld's first book, Prep, and really enjoyed it, so I have high hopes for this one.

Both of these books are quite long, so if I actually finish them both this week, I'll be surprised.

  1. The Overachievers sounds fun! I was such a nerd in high school :)

  2. Ooh! I didn't know about that one from Haven Kimmel! I look forward to your review!

  3. Unlike Melissa, I wasn't smart enough to be a nerd school. :) I did hang with nerds though.

    Have fun reading this week!
