It's Monday...What Are You Reading? (4.2.12)



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 weekend I participated in Bloggiesta and I got a lot done. Check out my update posts below. I would appreciate any feedback you have on any of the changes I've made. I love weekends like this because besides working on my own list of things to do, you can visit other participating blogs and see what they are doing. Of course, this meant I ended up adding things to my own list, but that's ok because I now have a list of things to do moving forward.

Books Completed last week
  • A Sheetcake Named Desire by Jacklyn Brady (mine)
  • The Other Woman by Jane Green (library audio book)
  • Guilty Wives by James Patterson (mine)
Reading Now: 
  • Raising Wild Ginger by Tara Woolpy (e-book, review book)
  • The Undomestic Goddess by Sophie Kinsella (library audio book)
Next:   
  • The Sumerton Women by D.L. Bogdan (review book)  
  • Paradise Valley by Robyn Carr (e-book)
  • The Hot Flash Club by Nancy Thayer (library audio book)
Reviews completed last week

  • Infidel by Ayaan Hirsi Ali 
  • Second Chance Pass by Robyn Carr

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

  2. Wow, so many books and book productivity done. I could not see that list of reviews to be done and not feel the pressure but you get it done.

    1. I try not to let the list get too long. Of the reviews that I have listed that need to be done, 4 are just waiting to be posted and the other 4 are drafted and just need to be finished. I try to post at least 3-4 reviews a week. Thanks to Bloggiesta, I have 4 ready to go this week, and can hopefully work on the others for next week.

    1. The Undomestic Goddess is hysterical and the narrator is really good! A Sheetcake Named Desire is the first in the new A Piece of Cake mystery series - it was pretty good and included some great recipes at the end, one of which I already made - Chocolate Banana Coffee Cake - YUMMY!!!

  9. I listened to The Undomestic Goddess and liked it. My favorite book by her is still Can You Keep a Secret? (I've read almost all of her collection.) I just checked out I've Got Your Number from the library and I'm looking forward to reading it. Guilty Wives is also on my list. I can't keep up with Patterson!
