It's Monday...What Are You Reading? (8.15.11)

It’s Monday What Are you Reading , hosted by Sheila, is the perfect way for me to begin my week and allows me to focus on what needs to be read and to see what I have or have not accomplished the previous week. I also enjoy discovering new books by visiting other participants blogs.

It's back to work for me this week, and we are in the middle of a training session, so my reading time will be limited. I still have quite a few reviews to finish up and schedule for posting, so that is probably where my priority will lie for the week as time permits. 

Books Completed last week:
  • Firefly Lane by Kristin Hannah (mine)
  • Silver Girl by Elin Hilderbrand (audio book, mine)
  • Dead Men Don't Crochet by Betty Hechtman (mine)
  • Best Staged Plans by Claire Cook (library book)
Reading Now:
  • The Love Season by Elin  Hilderbrand (library book)
  • Rescue by Anita Shreve (library audio book)
  • Cleopatra: A Life by Stacy Schiff (book club book, mine)
  • Darkness, My Old Friend by Lisa Unger (review)
  • The Queen's Lady by Barbara Kyle (mine)

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


  1. I love the little summary you give at the start of this post - the It's Monday! meme does exactly the same for me. Here's my post which, like yours, covers a number of weeks:

  2. Kristen Hannah's books are one of my guilty pleasures. Have not read Firefly lane yet.
    New Follower via It's Monday blog hop. Check out my post

  3. Wow you had a great week and some very interesting books line up for this one. Hope you enjoy them all.

  4. @ Notjustreading: My post last week covered the weeks I was away - I just forgot to change the wording this week (but I have since fixed it). This meme really does help me keep on track as far as getting reviews done!

    @ Lex Write: I hadn't read a Kristin Hannah book in a while - and I loved Firefly Lane. I have True Colors on my shelf waiting to be read.

    @ Jan: It seems to go up and down as far as how much I read each I just need to get those reviews done!

  5. I really want to read Rescue! I hope that you enjoy it and can't wait to hear your thoughts. Have a great week!

  6. @Bonnie It's really good so far - I'm probably about halfway through it.

  7. How was Silver Girl on audio? I am curious about that one!

  8. @Sheila (Bookjourney) I really enjoyed it...and it's the first audio that I was able to listen to almost straight through - I was driving home to New York from North Carolina by myself.

  9. Hope you have a wonderful week and enjoy your collection of books.

  10. Hey, new follower and I'm just hopping through.
    Did you cry like a big baby at the end of Firefly Lane too? Thank you Kristin Hannah. I haven't read any of her other books but I do own a few, I just haven't been in the mood to cry a river of tears. :)

    I have Twenties Girl but I couldn't get into it, I am looking forward to your review.

    You can look at my fun post HERE
    have a great rest of the week!

  11. I enjoy this meme, too, as it keeps my reading record in check.

    Have a great reading week


  12. That's a long list! I'm posting late this week because I've been on a trip to the mountains and out of reach of the internet. Please come see what I've read.

  13. The Queen's Lady looks really great Kristin! I think you are going to have a great week when it comes to your reading! :)
