It's Monday -- What Are You Reading?

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is hosted by Sheila at One Persons Journey Through a World of Books. It's is a weekly event to celebrate what we are reading for the week as well as books completed the previous week.

A new year and a new round of books! I hope everyone had a scrumptious literary holiday -- because I certainly did!


True Grit by Charles Portis (5 stars!  And the movie was AWESOME too!)
True Grit

Little Heathens by Mildred Armstrong Kalish (2 stars -- I'm reluctant to admit that I found this very popular book dreadfully boring.)
Little Heathens: Hard Times and High Spirits on an Iowa Farm During the Great Depression

Charms for the Easy Life by Kaye Gibbons (3 stars -- I liked it, but it was heavy on characters, too light on plot.)
Charms for the Easy Life

Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet by Jamie Ford

Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet

I bought this book a year ago for a birthday present to myself -- and I'm just now getting around to reading it!

I have NO IDEA!  I got a sled full of books from Santa -- so I'm not even sure where to begin. 

What did Santa bring you -- and what are you reading this week?
