After being in a reading slump for most of the year, I have finally made it through a few books in one week - once a commonality in my life and now a rarity.

This "Week of Reading" started with the fabulous You Know When the Men are Gone by Siobhan Fallon, continued with a chic-lit title that was just okay in 29: A Novel by Adena Halpern, and concluded today with the gripping but tragically sad memoir Tiger, Tiger by Margaux Fragoso.

I have a couple more memoirs checked out from the local library (including Kitchen Confidential by Anthony Bourdain which I have been wanting to read for quite some time) but I think I need a break after Tiger, Tiger to read something else, so I hope to be diving into the new Diane Chamberlain novel this evening. My book group read The Secret Life of CeeCee Wilkes and I really enjoyed it but haven't read anything by the author since. The Midwife's Confession, published this year, currently has 67 ratings on Goodreads with an average score of 4.68 - not bad, not bad at all!

Hey, found the blog while jumping links on Goodreads. I'm also a new member of Busy as a Bee Books.. :)
I love these reading binges as well! Although, I have found my sleep timings suffering greatly when I get into one of these moods. Don't get me wrong, books are art are worth it, but it would be nice to keep up without losing out on those z's. I was just wondering how you managed to do it.. Good on ya!
