What I'm Reading Mondays & Weekly Wrap-Up for 5/13/13




This week I finally got three reviews written that I've been meaning to do, so there's only currently two books in the queue, waiting to be reviewed.  But at least I got over my writer's block a little bit.  

I finished reading The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle, The Conduit, and The Lightning Dreamer.  I'm working on four books - a YA, a historical fiction, a book of humor essays, and a book full of cool facts about everything from philandering politicians to elephants.

What about you?  What have you been reading lately?  I hope your week has been as good for reading as mine has!  Leave a comment and let me know!
