It's Monday...What Are You Reading? (7.15.13)

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.

We ended up heading up to our cabin this past weekend and it was so relaxing. I was able to get quite a bit of reading time in while hubby busied himself with little projects - he has a hard time sitting still up there! It's amazing what happens when you take a break from social end up being so much more productive!!!

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


  1. I have A Hundred Summers for review and need to read it still. I also want to read Robyn Carr's series. I just downloaded The Wanderer from my library. I also want to read the Virgin River series at some point.

    Have a great week! I don't think I will be participating in the mini Bloggiesta but if my vacation plans fall through then I might sign up too.

  2. I'm working on Nineteen. I'm reading it slowly. Such a great summer read!

    Here's my It's Monday. Love to have you stop by!

  3. I'm looking forward to seeing what you thought of A Hundred Summers. I won't be participating in Bloggiesta. We fly to Europe soon.

  4. No Bloggiesta for me I'm afraid but hope you get through everything on your to-do list! You're right about social media, I'd get so much extra done if I had a social media ban one weekend a month lol
    Have a great week and happy reading :)

  5. No bloggiesta for me this weekend. I was going to but I have to do some work project stuff. I am hoping to squeeze in a little bit of work but we will see.

  6. Susanna Kearsley has been one of my favourites. Reconstructing Amelia is on my TBR. Hope to get to it eventually.

  7. You have lots of good looking books...some I've enjoyed a lot.

    I'm off to check out some reviews...and here's MY MONDAY READING POST

  8. Time away from social media does help reading time. I go into withdrawal without my internet though. Come see what I read last week at Inside of a Dog. Happy reading!

  9. No blogiesta for me this weekend; too booked. I liked the Newcomer, did you?

  10. Ow curious about your thoughts on the Painted Girls. I really need to find time to read that one. I love Tess Gerritsen too but have not read all her books. Have a great week!

  11. I'm going to start Reconstructing Amelia soon, can't wait to read your review on it. I hope you enjoy The Painted Girls as much as I did!

  12. I have read all the Janet Evanovich books and The Apple Orchard is on my kindle. I have The Shadow Tracer at the top of my wishlist-- I really like Meg Gardiner after discovering her last year. Enjoy your week of reading.

  13. Nice to get away for awhile to a cabin and lots of reading! I must read an Elin Hilderbrand book. Must see if our library stocks any of hers.

  14. Enjoy your books this week. I finished What the Spell? by Brittany Geragotelis (4/5 stars) last week. This week I'm reading Solaris by Stanislaw Lem, Fields of Elysium by A.B. Whelan, and OCD Love Story by Corey Ann Haydu.

  15. I want to read The Painted Girls.

    Great week for you. ENJOY!!
