The last few days, due to work, I have been unable to read anything and the last few weeks my blogging has been non-existent, but I hope that will change sometime soon. And I am starting to blog again in small steps and this is one of them.
Musing Mondays is a weekly meme that asks you to choose one of the following prompts to answer:
I’m currently reading…
Up next I think I’ll read…
I bought the following book(s) in the past week…
I’m super excited to tell you about (book/author/bookish-news)…
I’m really upset by (book/author/bookish-news)…
I can’t wait to get a copy of…
I wish I could read ___, but…
I blogged about ____ this past week…
THIS WEEK’S RANDOM QUESTION: Where is the strangest place you’ve ever read a book? OR… Where is the strangest place you’ve ever found a crazy-good book,
Right now I am in the middle of a book slump, which is a bit of a bummer, but up next I will read All Quiet on the Western Front by Erich Remarque (book club read that I have to present in about a week and a half), The Book of Life by Deborah Harkness, and The Prime Minister's Secret Spy by Susan Elia MacNeal (Maggie Hope #4). I might start the Sarah MacLean series with A Rogue by Any Other Name (Rules of Scoundrels #1).
This week I blogged about the BOTNS Reading Bingo Challenge on my blog. If you wish to join, it starts today, May 25, and ends on Labour Day, September 7. You can still join and download a bingo card for this summer and I hope that some of you are interested enough to join me in the challenge (more information through the link above).
The strangest place that I read a book was a closet in the hotel room in Montreal that my sister and I were sharing. I didn't want to go and sit in the bathroom nor did I want to go down to the lobby to do some reading, so I went into the closet, where there fortunately was a light that I could turn on to read while my sister slept.
PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT with either a link to your own Monday Musings post, or share your answer in a brief comment here (if you don't have a blog). Thanks!

Description: In the spirit of The Good Place, Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure, and The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, author Russ Colchamiro has gone back to the future to deliver his wildest, funniest novel yet--the new and updated Sci-Fi/Fantasy tale Finders Keepers: The Definitive Edition.
When a jar containing the Universe's DNA falls from Eternity, bumbling backpackers Jason and Theo find their loyalties--and sanity!--put to the test. Unaware that a motley crew from another realm is chasing them across the globe to retrieve that radioactive vessel, these intrepid new friend…
Description: On the eve of her
wedding to Nicholas Young, heir to one of the greatest fortunes in Asia,
Rachel should be over-the-moon. She has a flawless Asscher cut diamond
from JAR, a wedding dress she loves more than anything found in the
salons of Paris, and a fiancée willing to sacrifice his entire
inheritance in order to marry her. But Rachel still mourns the fact that
her birthfather, a man she never knew, won't be able to walk her down
the aisle. Until: a shocking revelation draws Rachel in to a world of
Shanghai splendor beyond anything she has ever imagined. Here we meet
Carlton, a Ferrari-crashing bad boy known for Prince Harry-like antics;
Colette, a celebrity girlfriend chased by fevered paparazzi; and the man
Rachel has spent her entire life waiting to meet: her father.
Description: From award-winning and
bestselling author Michael Redhill comes a darkly comic literary
thriller about a woman who fears for her sanity--and then her life--when
she learns that her doppelganger has appeared in a local park.
Mason has a doppelganger. At least, that's what people tell her.
Apparently it hangs out in Kensington Market, where it sometimes buys
churros and shops for hats. Jean doesn't rattle easy, not like she used
to. She's a grown woman with a husband and two kids, as well as a
thriving business, and Toronto is a fresh start for the whole family.
She certainly doesn't want to get involved in anything dubious, but
still . . . why would two different strangers swear up and down they'd
just seen her--with shorter hair furthermore?
