It's Monday...What Are You Reading? (5.14.12)




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

Well, I had great intentions to catch up on some reading, but life just seems to get in the way. This week doesn't look to be much better, but hopefully I will be able to carve in some reading time somewhere along the way!

  4. Love Nora Roberts' books but The Next Always was only so-so for me and I'm not sure that I will read the Last Boyfriend.

    Hope you enjoy your reads for the week and thanks for stopping by.

    1. I liked The Next Always and so far The Last Boyfriend is pretty good. I will agree that some of her books are better than others!

    1. I love her books - they are great. I've read a ton of her books and can't even pick a favorite - they are all that good!

  6. I am curious about The Last Boyfriend. Good?

  7. I was surprised at how much reading I actually got done as it seemed that I was always busy! I am listening to What Doesn't Kill You and it is very good, the narrator is doing a great job.

    1. I thought I would get more done, but time just got away from me...hopefully this week I'll get a little more done.

      I'm glad you are enjoying What Doesn't Kill You - I really liked it.

    1. Sometimes I get that much done, sometimes I get less. I haven't read anything by Lori Wilde yet - but I hear she's a good writer!

  11. I really liked The Good Father - Diane Chamberlain is one of my favourite 'adult' authors. Nice to read a book partly told from a single father's perspective too!

    Good luck squeezing in extra reading this week :-D

    1. I've only read a few books by Diane Chamberlain - and now I want to go back and read more! It was nice to see the single father's perspective - my brother was a single father for years, so it's something that's close to my heart.

    1. The Weird Sisters is good, I just haven't had much time to listen to it lately. I find you can't go wrong with a Nora Roberts or Kristin Hannah book.

  18. Wow, I think you had a very productive reading week! I enjoyed Kristin Hannah's previous novel, Firefly Lane, and I LOVE the Stephanie Plum series!!

    1. I enjoyed Firefly Lane, too. I'm just starting the Stephanie Plum series, but I found the first one to be pretty good.

  19. I've never read James Patterson, but I know a lot of people really enjoy his writing. Have you read all of his books?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Almost all of them. There are a few series that I don't read The Maximum Ride series, the Witch and Wizard series, and the Daniel X series. But I do read his other series - Women's Murder Club, Alex Cross, Michael Bennett and Private. I also read most of his stand-alones. I find his books to be quick, suspenseful reads.

    1. I am...I'm debating whether to see the movie now or wait a little while until I am further along in the series. Have you seen it?

  26. I'm always a few books behind in my reviews too. I read faster than I write!

    1. I don't know if it's that I read faster than I write or that I tend to go from one book right to the next and I don't always write the review right away.
