It's Monday...What Are You Reading? (9.23.13)



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.

What a week!!! I went to two author events, getting to meet both Hank Phillippi Ryan and Sue Grafton.  Both were really cool and I got signed books to add to my signed book shelf - yes, I have a whole shelf devoted to signed books and it's quite full! Then this weekend was Bloggiesta and I got so much done!!! I actually got all my outstanding reviews done and scheduled, plus I set up the posts for all the upcoming tours/reviews I have scheduled the rest of this month and in October. It feels so good to be ahead!!!

  1. It must be a great feeling to be all up to date. A profitable weekend. I haven't read any of the books you mention, however a couple of the authors are on my 'hit' list for some time in the future.

  3. I'd love to be all caught up on my reviews! I have a spreadsheet to keep track of all the review books I still need to read and review. Way too many :(

    I hope you enjoy The Husband's Secret. I really liked it. I need to read The Girl You Left Behind for review and I want to read The Spymistress. I look forward to reading your thoughts on that one.

  9. I read Just Like Fate by Cat Patrick & Suzanne Young. It was a pleasant book that makes you stop and think. I'm currently reading A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin and The Giver by Lois Lowry. The latter is for banned books week. I hope you enjoy your week of reading.
