Manic Monday: Week of October 24

We all know that Mondays are typically pretty manic for us all.  Honestly, who in the world likes Mondays?!  So here's an attempt for me to organize my thoughts for the week.  Here you'll find what I'm reading, what I will picking up next, different posts that you can expect in the upcoming week, and a recap of the posts from last week!  And anything else I see fit, of course :]

Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy.
Once again, not putting my thoughts here, but pointing you in the direction of my week 2 post for the readalong!  But we warned, if you've never read the book, you probably shouldn't read that post.  Just know that I'm liking it so far :]

Murder in Three Acts by Agatha Christie
I kept staring at the pile of Agatha Christie at the foot of my bed and decided that I really wanted to start one.  I wasn't going to until I finished Frankenstein, but I couldn't help myself.  At 80 pages in, there's been 2 murders and we're finally getting more clues.  I have my suspicions, but Christie always throws you for a loop so we'll see how right I am at the end!

Frankenstein by Mary Shelley
I'm really enjoying this one so far.  Yes, many people think it is a crime that I haven't read this classic before, but I think it has something to do with where I live as to why it was never required reading.  This isn't a very long read and I'm hoping to get it finished this week, but we'll see how this goes considering all the things I have going on!


What will I be picking up next?
Like I said, I told myself that I was going to finish Frankenstein before I picked up anything else, but Christie was beckoning and I couldn't help myself.  I think I'll finish both Shelley and Christie pretty easily and then I'll move on to the rest of my pile of Christie.  I want to get at least one more of hers read before the end of the month.  I think I can accomplish that pretty easily!


What can you expect this week?
++  Tuesday: NRT, featuring the upcoming release from Diana Gabaldon as well as the upcoming album from Tegan and Sarah.
