It's Monday...What Are You Reading? (10.29.12)




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.

Where did this past week go? Oh, I know - I was crazy busy with work and then I spent the last part of the week getting ready for Sandy...my husband and I spent all day Saturday getting our boats ready - and boy was that tiring! For all you in the path of the storm - stay safe!!!

  1. I hope the storm fizzles out and passes over all without causing great harm.

    1. I hope so, but that's not looking like it will be the case...I believe the storm has strengthened!

  2. I remembered a time when I was in the university when I was positively addicted to Nora Roberts and Jude Deveraux. :) Enjoy the rest of your reading week! :)

    1. You just can't go wrong with Nora Roberts! I have read a few Jude Deveraux as well.

  3. I'm so jealous that you're reading Wolf Hall--I've had that one on my list for a long time. Hope you're enjoying it!

    1. I need to get back to that one...I put it aside to get to some review books and haven't picked it up in a while!

  4. I like your mixture of slower reads and easy-going books. I try to read an easy book after a more difficult one too.

    Have a great week!

    1. Too many slow reads and I don't feel like reading so I always try to balance...that's the good thing about having a wide range of reading interests!

  5. I loved so many of the books you mentioned, like the Elizabeth Berg book; Love Anthony; the Hot Flash Club series; and the Big Stone Gap books. I have only read three or four Janet Evanovich books (one was not a Stephanie Plum). I really need to catch up! Enjoy your week, and thanks for visiting my blog.

    1. I am loving the Stephanie Plum series, and haven't tried any of Janet Evanovich's other books. The Hot Flash Club is hysterical!!!

  7. Oh my gosh stay safe!

    I have not read the Stone Gap series but it sounds like one that I would really enjoy. I love books that are set in small towns with great characters. :) I will have to check it out.

    1. Thanks...we're hunkered down and I have a stack of books to read. Still have power at the moment, but not sure how long that will last!

  8. I read The Lincoln Conspiracy about a month ago and really liked it. I'll be curious to see what you think of it!

    1. I'm glad to hear you liked it...I'm a little weary of it, but will give it a go!

  9. I love that you have a mix of different books in your reading pile (review, ebook, audio, personal and from library). I wish I was more balanced that way. I will have to make it my goal for the new year.

    I read and loved Genova's first two books and can't wait to read Love Anthony. I'm heading off to read your review.

  11. I'm really itching to get my hands on a copy of that new Lisa Genova and I hope you're enjoying Wolf Hall as much as I did. Looks like we have some similar tastes! Great minds and all that ;)

    Have a great week!

  12. I hope you stay safe in the storm. The Janet Evonovich series should help keep your mind off the weather, its hilarious.

    Wishing you a great reading week

  13. Stay safe! Except for the abundance of CYBILS reading, things are back to normal. My favorite book was How to Wash a Cat by Rebecca M. Hale. Please come see what I'm reading now.

  14. You certainly had a busy blogging week. Wow. I've been reading lately, but my heart hasn't been into blogging. Maybe after the election I'll be more interested again.

  15. Hot Flash Club - now that sounds like a club I need to join! :)

  16. I hope you came through the storm all safe. Hmm - Wolf Hall sounds interesting. I sort of got stuck on Evanovich at Four... I may have to try again.
    Hope your reading has been good this week.
