It's Monday...What Are You Reading? (4.15.13)



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.


Vacation is finally here...we leave tomorrow for Aruba and I cannot wait!!! I have my Kindle loaded up with books, have a few print books to bring along as well and plenty of sunblock. This is the third time we are heading to Aruba and we have a good routine set up - I sit on the beach all day and read while hubby goes off scuba diving. This year, though, I want to try Stand-Up Paddleboarding...it looks fun and I figure the warm, clean water in Aruba is the best place to try it out!

  • What She Wants by Sheila Roberts (netgalley e-book)
  • Sweet Tea Revenge by Laura Childs (review book)

  16. You are going to have a fabulous vacation. I am so jealous. I've been to Aruba twice, once on my honeymoon and again right before we decided to have kids. I probably won't be going again until I retire (LOL) but I hope you have a lovely time. It is the perfect relaxing vacation spot.
