Reading plans this week:

  • I’m almost done with The House Next Door by Ann Rivers Siddons.  It’s an excellent start to RIP IV!
  • I have about 12 short stories to read for school this week, so I hope to blog about several of them.  They are some of my favorite Latin American and Spanish stories.
  • I began reading Catching Fire, but had to put it down so I could get some homework done.  So good!  I’m going to hopefully finish it this week.

What did you read last month?

  1. Looks like a great reading month. I particularly enjoyed Knife of Never Letting Go (I’m reading The Ask and The Answer at the moment) and Prayer for Owen Meany.

    Catching Fire was a book I really couldn’t put down. Stayed up too late the day I bought it so I could finish it. It’s already been passed on to a friend to read.
