It's Monday -What are You Reading? 7/25

This is a weekly meme hosted by Book Journey. 

Read last week:

One Day by David Nicholls
One Day was a good read. I hear the movie with Anne Hathaway is very true to the book. Can't wait!

Reading Now:
Freakonomics by Levitt & Dubner
I'm currently enjoying Freakonomics. I usually alternate between fiction and non-fiction. I think this book is very accessible, whether or not you have background in economics or statistics. 

Up Next:
Room by Emma Donoghue
I've heard lots about this book, both good and bad. I'm going to see for myself soon as I finish Freakonomics.

My To-Read list is already incredibly long, but I'm always taking recommendations. I often change my mind about which book to read at the last minute because of a friend's review or recommendation. So tell me, is there something else I should read next?

Love and (a book) light,

~Dorothy

  1. Room has been on my to get list forever! I hope that you enjoy it and I will watch for your review.

    At first, I didn't think I had much for my Monday Review, but I stayed up way too last last night reading.

  2. Room is on my bookshelf waiting to be read. Just gotta get through a bunch of others first.

    Freakonomics is a great book. It's entertaining, accessible for people with and without an economic degree, and is a book you can talk about with people and apply to real life. Enjoy!

  3. I hope you enjoy your books, although I didn't really love either Freakonomics or Room, but I think I'm in the minority.

  4. I decided not to go with Room, hope you enjoy it.

    Fifty Shades of Grey is a must read :-)

  5. I think I'm going to be the last person to read One Day, I have a copy but it never calls to me. I read Room in one sitting but then I had no idea what the book was about other than a room so I liked the not knowing at first. I thought it was very clever if not to everyone's tastes!

  6. I have seen Room around the blogging world and bookstore browsing. I honestly don't know much about it, but I did get my hands on a copy, so it is my list of TBR. Hope you enjoy it.

    Here is mine for this week.

  7. Enjoy your books. The wackiest book I'm reading this week is Bagelmania. Please come see what else I'm reading.

  8. I enjoyed One Day and Freakonomics was interesting but not really my thing.

    Haven't read Room yet but it's on my TBR list.
