It's Monday...What Are You Reading? (8.12.13)

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.

The first part of August has been dedicated to getting any review books/library books read so that the rest of the month can be all about reading books from my shelves! I'm hoping to get in lots of reading time this week as we are heading to the beach for a few days midweek. Hopefully the weather will cooperate - I haven't been to the beach all summer and am so looking forward to it!

Please help: I am thinking about changing up the format of how I do this post. What do you look forward to seeing most when reading these posts? Any suggestions would be most welcome!!!

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


  1. idk. I find with weekly memes it helps to keep it short and simple. By answering the 3 questions is all that is necessary. That way we can visit more blogs :)

    1. I like short and simple, too. Thanks for the feedback!

  2. I've been playing with the format on my blog. I've tried to box in my books, but it is very hard. I've ended up spending hours trying to get the format right. I may be back soon with a more simple format!

    Here's my What Are You Reading?!

    1. Yes, it seems simple is the easiest way to go!

  3. I enjoyed Maine...hope you do, too! Thanks for visiting my blog. Have a great week....

    1. So far, it's pretty good. It's my first time reading/listening to her. Have you read anything else by her?

  4. How are you liking Maine on audio? I've been torn between audio or print. Just started Three Little Words, and am enjoying it so far. Have a great week.

    1. It's really good so far. I just knew that if I didn't pick up the audio, it would be a while before I got to the print version.

  5. I really wasn't a fan of The Comfort of Lies or Maine, I hope you enjoy them more.

    Have a great week,

  6. The summer is just flying by and I am finding myself doing other things instead of getting my reading done. lol

  7. Ooo The Queen's Rivals sounds good! I love stuff like that though. :)

    My only suggestion is to maybe have links to all the titles you mention, either your review or a summary? But your blog is adorable and I love it. Lots of interesting and good content. :)

  8. Curious what you will think of The Comfort of Lies. Have a great week!

  9. You've accomplished a lot! Loved The Tudor Conspiracy, will check out your review. Have a wonderful few days at the beach and happy reading :)

  10. To be honest I enjoy whatever you present! However you choose to present it. It's good to see the different ways people set out this meme. Doesn't The Perfume Collector have a beautiful color. Reminds me of The Firebird. Both very vibrant.

  11. You had a great week! I have The Queen's Rivals and The Tudor Conspiracy on my wish list. Have fun at the beach. =)

  12. everyone seems to be reading The Perfume Collector. I still have it here to read. they must have sent out a ton of review copies! I tried it once it just didn't hit me but it'll prob be good if I focus.


Thank you so much for leaving a comment! I love interacting with other book lovers and appreciate any thoughts or feedback! If you read a book after seeing my review, please let me know. Come back and leave me a link to your review so I can read it. Thank you!!!
