It's Monday...What Are You Reading? (7.16.12)

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.

It was a good week. I got some reading done, including finishing up 2 audio books and spent some time organizing my bookshelves. I also did some heavy-duty cleaning of my house - this heat is causing the dog to shed so much that there is hair everywhere! 

I'm heading to the beach next weekend and I cannot wait - my first beach trip of the summer! My sister-in-law has a beach house and I can't wait to spend time with her and my nephew and soak up the sun, listen to the waves and get some quality reading time in!

Books Completed last week:

  • Still Missing by Chevy Stevens (library audio book)
  • Summerland by Elin Hilderbrand (library book)
  • The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson (library audio book)

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


  1. I've wanted to read an Elin Hilderbrand all summer. Maybe I should just do it, right? I hope you're enjoying Stieg Larsson too. I loved those books.

  2. Love the cover for Poseidon. Looks like last week was pretty awesome in reading, and hope you have another great one this week. How was Dragon Tattoo - I really liked it - are you going to continue the series?

  3. I definitely must read Summerland....and I should read The Girl Who Played with Fire, which I was awhile ago that I read The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, but I saw the movie for the first time this weekend...and now want to read more!

    Enjoy your week! Here's MY MONDAY READING POST

  4. I tried to read The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo ages ago but just couldn't get into it. I hope you enjoyed it though. Summerland looks like a really intense read that I've added to my TBR list! Have a great week Kristin!

    Here is what I'm reading this week:

  5. :) What did you think about the Dragon Tattoo?? I haven't read it yet, but I've promised myself this summer I will.

  7. I'm reading Taste by Kat Evangelista this week. So far it's very...interesting. ;)

    Here's what else I'm reading this week!

  8. New follower here; you have quite the collection of books! I just checked out The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo today.

  9. I usually love Sophie Kinsella books, but couldn't get into her newest one for some reason. I look forward to seeing what you think of it.
