It's Monday...What Are You Reading? (9.9.13)

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 mantra for this week has got to be "Get those reviews done!!!" I am once again behind on them and it's making me nuts!!! Hoping I can bang out a whole bunch this week and maybe, just maybe, find myself ahead of the game!

  • Maine by J. Courtney Sullivan (library audio book)
  • Queen's Gambit by Elizabeth Fremantle (review book)
  • The Other Women by Hank Phillipi Ryan (review book)
Reading Now:   
  • The Good Wife by Jane Porter (mine)

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


  1. Good luck getting your reviews done, I'm sure you'll feel very relieved once they're out of the way! Queen's Gambit is on my tbr stack, I never tire of the Tudors!
    Have a great week and happy reading :)

    1. Yes, I'm hoping I will! Queen's Gambit is great! And I agree with you, I never tire of the Tudors either!

  2. Is the Good Wife anything in common with the TV series?

    1. No, it's the 3rd book of Jane Porter's Brennan Sisters series.

  3. I went crazy this weekend and wrote up reviews for about twenty books. Haven't posted them online yet, but, hey, that's something, right?

    Here's my It's Monday!

    1. Wow - 20 reviews...that's impressive!!!

  4. Better get on those reviews :-) Happy reading this week!

  5. I always seem to be behind on reviews! Hope you are able to get caught up soon.

    I'll have to check out your review of The Hero. I read that one recently too.

    1. Yes, it's a never-ending battle - read too much and the reviews pile up!

  6. Looks like you have some great books to read. Have a great week.

  7. I downloaded The Good Wife this week...hope to read it soon. Loved the first two books in the trilogy.

    Hope you enjoy your week.


    1. Yes, so did I and I started The Good Wife last night - so intense right off the bat!

  8. I want to read The Good Wife, and The Good Woman and The Good Daughter by Jane Porter. I've only read her fluffy chick-lit books before but these sound really good! I read The Other Woman by Hank Phillippi Ryan and am looking forward to reading her second in that series-I'm a new fan of hers. Thanks.

    1. Jane Porter's Brennan Sisters series is soo good. I hope you get to them soon!

      I'm a new fan of HPR too and can't wait to read the next one as well!

  9. I so badly wanna read Queen's Gambit. Should pay a visit to the bookstore soon. Happy reading!!!

  10. Good luck with writing your reviews! Do not forget to read a view books too!

  11. I am totally winging it this week LOL You have a good plan :)

  12. I'm looking forward to hearing your thought on The Other Woman. Have a great week!

  13. You are, once again, a lot more organized than me! (The first step is making the list....) Enjoy your reading and reviewing. The reviewing part is work, but it does bring me to a deeper level with most books.

  14. Nice week. You got a lot of reading done.

    I am out of town and not getting too much reading done, but I am having fun. Went to a Hachette book event and received 9 books. The event was FABULOUS.
