Musing Mondays (Dec. 12)

Musing Mondays is now being hosted by Ambrosia at her blog, The Purple Booker.

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: Does reading help you to release stress during stressful times? If it does do you have a favorite book that you return to for calm?

I’m currently reading…

I’m a little more then 2/3 through this book and I’m still really enjoying it.

So far, I’ve read the first two short stories in this collection.  I enjoyed Minights by Rainbow Rowell, but I didn’t care for The Lady and the Fox by Kelly Link.  We’ll see what I think about the rest of the stories.  I’ve heard a lot of good things about this compilation so I’m looking forward to reading more of the short stories.

I can’t wait to get a copy of…

As Christmas is fast approaching, of course there are many books on my list.  I think this might just be the book I’m most looking forward to recieving…hopefully!  😉

THIS WEEK’S RANDOM QUESTION: Does reading help you to release stress during stressful times? If it does do you have a favorite book that you return to for calm?

Sadly, usually books do not help me to release stress.  If I’m stressed, I struggle to focus so it makes it harder to read.  If I read when I’m stressed it has to be a light and fun book that doesn’t require a ton of focus.

What book(s) are you most excited to receive this Christmas/Holiday Season?

Feel free to post your Musing Monday link.  I’d love to read what you’re musing about this Monday

  1. I enjoyed Winter Solstice…and I like the look of My True Love Gave to Me.

    I didn’t do the Musings today, and when I went over to the old site to set up my Teaser Tuesdays…I discovered The Purple Booker is the new host.

    Enjoy your reading!

    1. I almost didn’t post a Musing Mondays this week either, especially since I’m mainly still reading the same book from last week. It’s just a busy time of year. Yes, I was surprised to see the change today. I had no idea. But, I’m glad Musing Mondays and Teaser Tuesdays will be continuing. 🙂

    1. Thanks so much for hosting and keeping Musing Mondays and Teaser Tuesday going. Hahaha! So far, all I’ve planned this month are Christmas reads, which is a first for me. I love Christmas, but I usually only read maybe one Christmas book in December.
