It's Monday...What Are You Reading? (3.5.12)



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.

This past week was a much quieter week, made even quieter after coming down with a terrible cold towards the end of the week. I did manage to catch up on some reviews and got quite a bit of reading done. Now my focus is on getting last minute things done before going on vacation - a week in Aruba...I cannot wait!!! I have been putting books aside to take with me and now just need to decide which ones to take, plus my Nook is loaded up and ready to go! I just have to get through this week and then hello vacation!

  1. I haven't heard of the books you read last week. One of the reasons why I love this weekly meme. I discover new titles and authors.

  3. Infidel sounds like an interesting book. Someone in my book discussion group was saying it was a really good book so we may discuss it sometime in the future. I enjoyed your review of By the King's Design. I liked the Queen's Dollmaker but haven't read the other two books yet.

    I hope you are feeling better and that you have a fantastic trip to Aruba. I am going on vacation next week too but not anyplace exotic (Philadelphia).

    1. Infidel is definitely an interesting book - one that needs to be read a little bit at a time in order to digest what you are reading. I really like it and am about half-way through.

      I have really enjoyed all of Christine Trent's books - but I think The Queen's Dollmaker has been my overall favorite of the three!

      I haven't been to Philly in a while - it's a fun city, though. Hope you have fun!

  4. New follower, just stopping by on a Monday . . . some great choices there, and a really nice variety! I see a few titles I may have to poach for my TBR pile.

    1. Glad you stopped by...I find that this meme, It's Monday, always ends up with me adding to my tbr pile - a pile that seems to grow faster than I can read!!!

  6. Most of these titles are new to me. I have to say, I'm very impressed with how many books you read! You have wonderful book discipline! :) I'm sad to say working often gets in my way of reading, so I don't get to read nearly as often as I wish.

    Enjoy your books this week! :)
