What about you?  What does your reading week look like this week?  Whatever it is, happy reading and have a good week!


  1. You've got some good books on the go. Everyone seems to have read Major Pettigrew. Am I missing out on something really good?

    Happy reading!

  2. I, too, keep hearing about Major Pettigrew. I think I may have to add him to the TBR list.

    Happy reading this week!

    Here's my Monday:

  3. I'm intrigued by a few, not completely sold yet, look forward to your reviews.

    My post.

  4. Some great titles there.

    Enjoy ur reading week

    mine looks like this


  5. I got some more fun reading done last week. Next week will involve a lot of K to 3 books. Come see what I'm reading now.

  6. I've seen Major Pettigrew all over the blog world lately, and each time it looks good. I guess I'll get to it someday! Have fun reading.

  7. I have been seeing The Paris Wife around a lot and it looks like a book I would enjoy. Look forward to a review. Have a great week!

  8. Thanks everyone for stopping by.

    Major Pettigrew is excellent...I highly recommend it. I am hoping to have my review up for it this week or early next week at the latest.

    The Paris Wife is also really good so far - it's about Ernest Hemmingway's first wife. Review will be up Wednesday (with a giveaway!) and the author is doing a guest post on Thursday.

  9. I'm curious about Cleopatra. I heard about it once long back and saw mainly good reviews. I'll have to check out that book again. Have a great week, Kristin!

  10. @Aths Cleopatra is really interesting but it is slow reading. It was the pick for my book club in January and once I realized I couldn't attend the meeting due to a work commitment, I put the book aside to do some other reading. I really need to get back to it soon so I can finish it!

  11. You are going to have a great reading week!

    I can't wait to see what you think of the E. Berg book :)


Thank you so much for leaving a comment! I love interacting with other book lovers and appreciate any thoughts or feedback! If you read a book after seeing my review, please let me know. Come back and leave me a link to your review so I can read it. Thank you!!!
