It's Monday...What Are You Reading? (1.7.13)




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.

Well, the first week of the new year has come and gone and I didn't get too much reading done. Hopefully this isn't a sign of what's to come this year! Luckily Bout of Books 6.0 is starting today and I am hoping to get in lots of reading time during this read-a-thon, which goes from today til Sunday, January 13th. I have quite a few tours coming up, plus I really want to make a huge dent in reading my own books this year.

    1. I love having the progress bars on my page - although right now it's making me anxious that I haven't finished any books yet this year!

    1. I haven't read anything by her in a while...The Diary was great! A Grown-Up Kind of Pretty is the first book I read by Joshilyn Jackson...I loved it and definitely want to read more by her.

  12. I'll have to hop over to your review of the Christmas Cookie Club, I read it last Christmas and thought it was a charming distraction :)

    Hope you have a wonderful week!

  13. Kristin, you have to stop reading all of these WWII novels. I can't resist and my tbr list is expanding exponentially! I hope you enjoy The Kommandant's Girl, though. :)
