It's Monday...What Are You Reading? (6.25.12)




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.

Last week marked the end of the Spring Reading Thing hosted by Caterina at Callapidder Days and I was able to finish up the last two of the three books I had left. I ended up reading quite a lot during that challenge and got some books off my shelf that had been sitting there for a while.

This week is Audio Book Week and Jenn over at Devourer of Books has a great week planned, filled with discussion posts, links for audio book reviews and some really good giveaways. I'm planning on participating as much as I can and am hoping to get to some of my audio reviews this week. Will you be participating?

  • Death du Jour by Kathy Reichs (library audio book)
  • The Last Queen by CW Gortner (mine)

  2. A great reading list! I know how it feels to be behind on reviews too. Going to work on that today.

  3. Home for the Summer by Mariah Stewart. Just started it and am awaiting to find out the secret in heroine's past; even tho' I have a good idea.

    Just finished and loved Rachel Simon's The Story of a Beautiful Girl - highly recommend it.

  4. Your "need to review" list is as large as mine. Almost. :) It's pretty intimidating isn't it?

    1. It is, but I've learned to just live with it...I used to get so stressed about it, but realized it wasn't worth it. Quite a few of those on the list are audios, which I have been saving for Audio Book Week, which is this week, so hopefully they will all get posted at some point this week!

    1. Yes, I enjoy his writing, too! I'm looking forward to starting The Queen's Vow later this week!

      I love this meme b/c it helps me keep track of my reviews that still need to be done!

    1. I was glad to have gotten at least the 2 books done. I always seem to go into these things with a pre-determined list and then end up reading a ton of other books!

  7. I read one of C.W. Gortner's novels and loved it. I'm looking forward to hearing more about this one.

  8. The Banana Split series sounds a lot like the Joanne Fluke series about the baker.
    Have a great week!

    1. So far, the series is pretty good. I love the television show and that's how I ended up starting to read the books.

  10. Love your lists! I am reminded of several I want to read, like more from Trigiani, Evanovich, and the new Mary Kay Andrews. I see you have Still Missing, too; hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

    Thanks for visiting, and have a great week!
