It's Monday...What Are You Reading? (8.22.11)

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.

Time for reading didn't seem to be on my side last week...between going back to work and then making sure all the details were set for my sister's bridal shower this past weekend, I was crazy busy. I am hoping for a slower week coming up, but not really holding my breath on that as I have my brother's wedding this weekend. At least I am getting to see lots of my family!!!

Books Completed last week:
  • The Love Season by Elin Hilderbrand (library book)
  • The Rescue by Anita Shreve (library audio book) 
  • Darkness, My Old Friend by Lisa Unger (review book)

  • The Queen's Lady by Barbara Kyle (mine)

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


  1. It's so difficult keeping up with reviews. That's one of the trickiest things about blogging for me.

    Here's my post: It's Monday! What Are You Reading? And don't forget to sign up for the Readerbuzz August Giveaway!

  2. I have not read Barbara Kyle... sounds like good reads!

  3. @Deb Nance at Readerbuzz I always seem to be behind on of these days I will catch up - at least that's the plan!

  4. @Sheila (Bookjourney) This is the first time I am reading her, too. So far I like her writing.

  5. I can't wait to read your thoughts on Firefly Lane - I read it a year or so ago and really enjoyed it.

    Megan @ Read It, See It

  6. @Megan Swicegood I loved it!!! I hadn't read anything by Kristin Hannah in a while and now can't wait to pick up more of her books. Hopefully the review will be up within the week or so.

  7. Looks like you've read some great books and have more coming up! I'll look forward to seeing your thoughts on Water for Elephants. Happy reading!
