New Week, New Book (1/15/18)

Hosted by The Book Date

Happy Monday! Some of you may be enjoying a three-day weekend, since today is the observance of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day; I, however, will be headed to work soon and will live vicariously through your undoubtedly fabulous days off! 

Winter returned for the weekend and I can't say that I was disappointed; it gave me an excuse to sleep in, stay inside, and enjoy plenty of reading time. On Friday evening, I finished Girl in Snow, thanks to this recommendation from Catherine at The Gilmore Guide to Books; what a beautifully-written novel! 

On Saturday morning, I started reading Red Clocks, one of two January releases I picked up from Book of the Month; I'll have more to share about this one in the future but, for now, I'll just say that I put off quite a few things on Saturday and Sunday in order to continue reading this unique story. 

I am very close to finishing my current audiobook, The Book of Joy: Lasting Happiness in a Changing World; I have created so many bookmarks that I've decided I need to purchase a physical copy of this one. 

In addition to reading Red Clocks, I also took some time this weekend to finish going through Work In: The Athlete's Plan for Real Recovery and Winning Results; not unlike her first book, Hit Reset, Erin Taylor provides some incredibly useful insight and I'll be posting more on this one soon. 

As of the creation of this post, I have just a few pages left in Red Clocks; next up, I have Anatomy of a Scandal by Sarah Vaughan (for review) and The Music Shop, my other January Book of the Month pick, and I'm curious about both of them! 

If you happen to be a huge book nerd, like I am, make sure to check out this new reading tracker by Sarah at Sarah's Book Shelves; this is going to make my reading life so much easier! 

I hope you all have a great start to the week; come tell me what you're reading!
