It's Monday...What Are You Reading? (4.7.12)

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 was bit of a slow week for me - I had a lot of other stuff going on so I didn't get in as much reading as I would have liked nor did I get to the many reviews I have piled up. I'm hoping this week will be a little quieter. I am excited, though, that Sunday brought on the beginning of sailing season which means lots of quality reading time on the porch of the boat club while hubby races.

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



  1. I still need to read One For the Money. I may watch the movie first so maybe I won't be as disappointed with the movie.

    I hope you are enjoying the Home Front audio. I read the book last month and I thought it was really good. I also want to read The Weird Sisters. I've had that on my TBR list for awhile.

    Sitting on a porch and reading sounds like fun! I hope you have a more productive week :)

    1. One for the Money was funny, but since seeing the previews of the movie, I kept picturing Kathryn Heigel as the main character.

      Home Front is good and so is The Weird Sisters.

  2. I spent many a summer reading the Evanovich books, but somehow I've missed the last two. Need to catch up!

    Here's my
    It's Monday! What Are You Reading?
    Please stop by!

    1. I have a lot of reading to do to catch up and am not sure I will get them all read this year, but I'm going to try!

  3. Everyone seems to be reading Home Front but The Queen's Pleasure is one I'm interested in. I only finished 1 book last week but at least it was an awesome one! I bet you're looking forward to that extra reading time :)
    Have a wonderful week & happy reading!

    1. I'm looking forward to starting The Queen's Pleasure - it's for a blog tour at the end of the month. Home Front is really good - intense, but good.

  4. I'm also reading The Good Father this week...and I loved Home Front and The Weird Sisters. Enjoy your week!


    1. I'm participating in the blog tour and scavenger hunt for The Good Father - need to finish the book by tomorrow! It's really good so far.

  5. I look forward to 11th Hour! Have a great reading week.

    1. So do I...I just got it from the store and will be starting it as soon as I finish The Good Father.

  6. I can't wait to hear what you thought of Raising Wild Ginger. I love Tara Woolpy!!
    Have a great week!!

    1. It was really good. I'm just waiting to hear from Tara when I can post my review.

  7. You are too organized! As for me, I'm reading one book, Whole Latte Life.

    (P.S. I mention you in today's post.)

    1. Thanks...I find it helps me organize my week and what reviews need to be done. I've heard good things about Whole Latte Life - hope you are enjoying it. I'm intrigued about you mentioning me on your blog - heading over to check it out!

  8. I track new releases in my calendar, so I was happy when my reminder for 11th Hour popped up today. I love The Women's Murder Club! I recently checked out Home Front from the library. Have you read Firefly Lane by her? It's so good. If you haven't, I think you will enjoy it. Have a good reading week!

    1. I picked up my copy of 11th Hour and am hoping to start it today! Home Front is a real emotional read, but really good. I did read Firefly Lane - loved that one, too!
