It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

I had a pretty great reading week. I finished The Humanity Project, by Jean Thompson, which I liked a lot. It didn't have the sweep of The Year We Left Home but I loved it in a different way. I'll have a review probably later this week.

Apart from dipping into some other galleys, that was about it. I'm now headlong into Sisterland, which I'm enjoying quite a bit as well, and slowing wading through Where Tigers Are at Home. That book is extremely long and you'll likely be hearing me say "I'm still reading Where Tigers Are at Home" for several months!

This month's reading theme is books-I've-always-wanted-to-read, so I'm starting with Jean Rhys's Wide Sargasso Sea, her Jane Eyre prequel if you will, about the life of Bertha Mason, Mr. Rochester's first wife. I'll let you know what I think!

What about you? Let me know in the comments!

Sisterland looks good to me so I'll be watching for that review.

I have wanted to read Wide Sargasso Sea for the longest time, and perhaps I should see if I can grab it now. I am reading Like Chaff in the Wind, and listening to The Burgess Boys on audio, but I think I am also going to start The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle for the readalong on audio tonight too.

When I read the Wide Sargasso Sea I didn't enjoy it as much as several in my book club (and they understand my reading taste) say they thought I would. I've been meaning to reread it to see if I was just in the wrong reading mood when I read it. I'll be anxious to see what you think about it.
