It's Monday...What Are You Reading? (10.10.11)



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.
 
Last week I ended up taking some time for myself - I didn't work at all and basically just relaxed all week. So, I ended up getting quite a lot of reading done - which is great for the Fall into Reading Challenge that just started!!! This week will not be quite as quiet, but I do anticipate a few days at home.

Books Completed last week:
  • The Diva Haunts the House by Krista Davis (mine)
  • Pumpkin Roll by Josi S. Kilpack (review book)
  • Navy Baby by Debbie Macomber (library book)
  • An O'Brien Family Christmas by Sherryl Woods (library book)
Reading Now:
  • The American Heiress by Daisy Goodwin
  • The Neighbor by Lisa Gardner (library audio book)
Next:
  • A Lawman's Christmas by Linda Lael Miller (review book)
  • Night Road by Kristin Hannah (library audio book)

  8. Pumpkin Roll sounds like it could be a fun book. You're reading a Christmas book in October? I don't think I could do that--too much like listening to Christmas music before Thanksgiving :-)

  9. @Audrey (Bibliosaurus Text) I've actually already read 2 Christmas books in October - I just couldn't wait any longer to get to those stories.

  11. @Chris The Diva series is so much fun - and includes great tips at the beginning of each chapter, usually related to the overall theme of the book!

  14. @Karen That's what I love about this meme - seeing what everyone else is reading. I always end up adding to my tbr list after visiting everyone's blog!

  15. I see you have a few reviews to write still. Hmm. That reminds me... Oh, I'd rather be reading! :-)

    ReplyDelete
  16. @leeswammes That's always the dilemma, isn't it? Read or write a review?

    ReplyDelete
  17. Thanks for stopping by my blog! I wish I could fit more reading into my schedule.

  18. @Donna I definitely go in spurts...last week I got a ton of reading in, and this week I probably will, too b/c we are having work done on our house and I have to be home. But there are plenty of weeks where I get nothing done!

    ReplyDelete
  19. That's a great list of books! I see several I want to add to my must-read list. Especially Pumpkin Roll -- that one sounds yummy. Happy reading this week!

  32. @ Joy: I hadn't read anything by Kristin Hannah in a while, but then read Firefly Lane and got hooked on her again. I'm excited to start Night Road.

    @ Reader of the Pack: I started reading Lisa Gardner with a few of her blog tours - but they were books 4 and 5. I loved both so much I decided to go back and read the first three - I got the book of the first and have listened to books 2 and 3.

    @ Amie: I'm hoping for another productive week!

  37. I hope you are enjoying The American Heiress. I've read mixed reviews. I have a copy for review so I need to start it soon. Plus, I've been missing Downton Abbey so it is a nice way to pass the time till it is on again in January :)

    @ Christina: I am enjoying The American Heiress. I really need to check this Downton Abbey out - a few people have mentioned it in conjunction with this book.

    @ Introverted Jen: I just couldn't resist reading these books - two had just come out and I love the series they are part of and one is for a blog tour.

    @ Lindsey: Yes, Pumpkin Roll does include some recipes, even one for a Pumpkin Roll.

    @ Mardel: Pumpkin Roll is a fun book and the contest is amazing and very easy to enter.

    @ Kristi: I always say I am going to devote a day to reviews and then something else comes up or I am in the middle of a really good book so that it never gets done.
