This weekend was a wash, as life seemed to creep in more than I wanted to. As a result, I didn't get as much reading as I had hoped to, primarily due to the fact that a couple of things creeped into my schedule, namely a hockey game that I didn't plan on attending and an hour doing some clothes shopping that I didn't intend on doing. I only managed to read for a couple of hours on Sunday and only got one book done. Sunday was no better, as I had a bunch of things I wanted to get done, even though I could have probably and should have done them on Saturday. I hope that I can get away more to host my own reading weekend next weekend, but I don't really see next weekend as busy as it was this past weekend. If it is, then I am going to scream!

It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is a fun weekly meme that is hosted by Shelia at Book Journey , in which we share what we've read and reviewed and what we plan on reading in the coming week. Books I finished last week: Nothing; seemed to be stuck on the same book and I couldn't find anything that I wanted to read. I was also pretty busy throughout the week that by Friday evening, all I wanted to do was watch something that wasn't on my PVR. I am hoping that I am able to finish a book or two this week. Books reviewed this week: 1) I Am Half-Sick of Shadows by Alan Bradley ( review ) 2) Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell ( review ) Books I am hoping to read this week: • Lady Catherine and the Real Downton Abbey • Thunderstruck • Sarum • Winter Solistice • some short Christmas themed books

The assignment: Write a post about the book you are most thankful for. This could be a book released this year or twenty years ago. Your post should include why you are thankful for that book. There are many books that I am thankful for and probably would take me a long time to state them all and the reasons as to why. But I suppose the book that I am the most thankful for is Jane Eyre. While it may seem slightly cliched, it is probably one of the first books that I feel in love with as a young adult. Okay, I was a young teenager at the time (about 13), but it was probably the first book that truly entranced me and made me really love reading. There had been many times I had tried to read a classic, but when I started reading Jane Eyre, I really became enthralled
