It's Monday...What Are You Reading? (2.11.13)

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.
We were in the path of Nemo this past weekend and ended up with 15 inches of snow! While it was a nuisance, it does look very pretty while the snow is all white! We are supposed to have warmer temps this week and rain today, so I expect some major melting! If you got any snow, hope you were able to dig out!!!

  • The Fate of Mercy Alban by Wendy Webb (review book)
  • The Ambassador's Daughter by Pam Jenoff (review book)
Reading Now: 
  • Bella Summer Takes a Chance by Michele Gorman (review book)

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


  1. I"m looking forward to the book reviews to be done. Both books have been on my TBR

    1. Both books were really good and the reviews will be up this week - with a giveaway for The Ambassador's Daughter!

  2. The only books I'm familiar with are the Evanovich books - those are pretty funny.

    Enjoy the rest! Hope you had some time during the snow fall to be cozy with some book time. We don't get snow, but on a rainy day when I don't have work, I love laying around, reading and hearing the rain in the background.

    have a great week

    1. Yes, the Evanovich books are very funny - have you tried the audio of any of them?

      I love rainy days and snowy days when I can just read all day, snuggled up with a blanket and a nice cuppa tea!

    2. nope - not sure if I could take any audios.... One time I read this wonderful book called The Tenth Kingdom. There's this wolf character that I had pictured in my head as pretty wolfy, as in alpha type, kind of dangerous and sly. Then the movie came out and the character was played as whiny and whimpery....hated it. The character. Rest of the movie was okay, but I was overly distracted by the wolf character not being played the way I imagined him....

      So I'm kind of afraid of other ways or characters that might get "ruined" in my mind from hearing in a voice. ugh. lol, weird, I know. :)

  3. I hope you have a secretary. With all the reading and reviewing you do, someone should get one for you!

    Here's my It's Monday! What Are You Reading? Hope you will stop in and share your thoughts.

    1. Luckily, I'm a pretty organized person - I love making and using lists and those help keep me on track!

  4. The Ambassador's Daughter is waiting on my Kindle!

    1. It's really good. Have you read any of her other books?

  5. I read a Stephanie Plum book this week, too; I enjoyed The Search...hope you do, too.


    and if you're interested, here's MY 100 FOLLOWERS GIVEAWAY

    1. Aren't the Stephanie Plum books so much fun? The Search is really good...I love Nora Roberts' romantic suspense stories.

  6. We've got some snow where I am currently, but it's nowhere near your 15 inches! It is pretty though :-)
    I have to admit, I've never read a Nora Roberts book... That is bad.
    Enjoy your reads :-)

    1. I enjoy Nora Roberts - she writes series/trilogies and stand-alones and they are all great!

  7. Holy moly you have read and are reading so very much! I'm one of those one books at a time gals. :) I'm always impressed by people who read more than one!

    I love me some Nora Roberts and Janet Evanovich! Some great Valentine's week reads there.

    I'd love for you to stop by my Monday Post! :)


  8. I'm glad you made it through Nemo with just a white lawn and a smaller tbr list!

    I think I've only read the first book in the Evanovich series. She has written so many books about Stephanie Plum!

  9. We got 12 inches Friday and then it started raining last night. Glad the snow fall for you was not worse! Have a great week.

  10. I'm trying to remember if I've ever read anything by Tess Gerritson. I'm pretty sure I read one and liked it, so I need to read more. I haven't read much mystery/thriller-y kinds of things since I started blogging for some reason. Enjoy your week!

  11. I have to get back to my Tess Gerritsen collection, I love her writing! Have a great week and happy reading :)
