It's Monday - What Are You Reading? (6.20.11)

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.

Last week managed to be a productive reading week, but not so much with reviews...I foresee lots of reviews being done this week. I also got a new laptop - the old one crashed one time too many for me. I'm still getting used to the new one, but at least I don't have to worry about it crashing! The Spring Reading Thing ends today and I did pretty well - look for my wrap up post to come out something during the day tomorrow.

Books Completed last week:
  • Chasing the Night by Iris Johansen (library audio book)
  • The Confessions of Catherine de Medici by CW Gortner (review book)
  • Alone by Lisa Gardner (e-book)
  • Mothers & Daughters by Rae Meadows (review book)
  • The D Word by Liz Fenton & Lisa Steinke (e-book, 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. Room is a great choice for a book club! Such a powerful novel. Happy reading :)

    Here's my Monday:

  2. @Kat P I'm looking forward to starting it soon. I'm glad my book club picked it for this month as it is forcing me to read it now instead of whenever I get to it!

  3. I have heard fantastic things about Room. I still have yet to get it.

  4. @Lisa (Lisa's World of Books) As I mentioned earlier, thank goodness my book club picked it...I've had my eye on it for a while but just haven't gotten to it yet. Now I have no choice!

  5. I look forward to 2 of the reviews specifically. Enjoy your week Krisitn.

  6. Room definitely sounds like one of those books you just have to read, I really need to get myself a copy. ;)

    I hope you have an awesome week! Happy Reading! :D

    @ Ambur: I've heard its a really intense book!

  8. I think the Confessions of Catherine de Medici sounds like a winner. Looking forward to your review.

  9. @Bev Hankins The review was posted today and I have to say I loved the book!
