It's Monday...What Are You Reading? (4.912)



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.

So after a productive Bloggiesta weekend getting ahead on reviews, I seem to once again be behind. I had spent so much time on my computer during Bloggiesta that this week, I focused on reading and was able to get lots of quality time in. Oh, to be caught up and have time to read...one day!!!

  19. Thanks for visiting my blog -

    I love Sara Addison Allen books - yet I haven't been able to read The Girl Who Chased the Moon yet. I've read The Sugar Queen (if I remember the title right) and Garden Spells. Great books. They're magical *g*

    I tried to find some info on Raising Wild Ginger because the title is intriguing, but all I could find was Releasing Gillian's Wolves and of course, now I want to read that novel. So now I'm following you, waiting for you to write a review on Raising Ginger. :)

    Undomestic Goddess - enjoyed that one very much, in fact, I like Kinsella's non Shopaholic books much better than the shopaholic series. Can only take so much of her character's shopaholic issues, y'know?

    1. I loved The Girl Who Chased the Moon - so cute! I haven't read the others that you mentioned, but they are on my tbr list.

      Raising Wild Ginger will be released later this spring...it was a really good read and my review will be posted once the book is released.

      I finished Undomestic Goddess yesterday - it was hysterical!!! I've only read 2 non-shopaholic books but I do like them!
