It's Monday...What Are You Reading? (11.4.13)

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.

How is it November already??? I've been seeing postings for 2014 reading challenges slowly popping up and am trying to decide whether or not to participate in any...especially since I don't seem to be doing too well in the ones I signed up for this year. But, I'm sure I will sign up for some - it's hard not to! Do you participate in any? How do you decide which ones to do?

Books Completed last week:
  • The Perfect Match by Kristan Higgins (review e-book)
  • Only His by Susan Mallery (library book) 
  • The Engagements by J. Courtney Sullivan (library audio book)
  • Only Us by Susan Mallery (e-book)
Reading Now:

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


  1. I have never tried a Carly Phillips book, must do so at some point, have heard of her, but never got as far as sampling.
    I haven't thought of challenges yet, will try one or two. I did try a couple of TBR challenges, the trouble is that pile keeps growing and I seem to find myself now with more in it than I had at the beginning of 2013.

  2. I've never done good with the Book Challenges. I seem to always want to read on a whim and not what I am supposed to be reading. Call me a rebel. Great reads this week - would love to see a review of The Engagements.

  3. It is so fun to try book challenges, but I end up becoming resentful of having to read certain books. So I haven't signed up for any in the last few years.

    Here's my Its Monday!

  4. I have decided to really cut back on challenges this upcoming year. I haven't finished all the ones for 2013, and I think it was a case of "my eyes were bigger than my stomach." I'd see one that looked good...and challenging. And sign up.

    Not a good way for me to go!

    I'm eager to learn more about the Joshilyn Jackson book on your list....I haven't read that one!


  5. I always love seeing what you read during the week b/c it all looks so stinkin' good.

    Happy reading this week :) The Brunette Librarian's Blog

  6. This week I have no reading plans since I have book convention starting Thursday. I am listening to Skinwalker by Faith Hunter (different but good). I am going to see if I have any Christmas type books on audio that I haven't listened to yet.

  7. Oww the challenges for 2014... I think I will only do the goodreads challenge that is the only one I do not need to remember because it happens automatic. I hope to finish more than one book this week. I have been to tired to concentrate. Enjoy your books!

  8. I host 3 challenges of my own and I'm going to sign up for a few. Not alot, but some. I don't always complete them, but they are fun to me.

    I hope you have a great week. My Monday post is here.

  9. I'm looking forward to your review of The Life List.

  10. Kristin, you are very good at list-making, and far more organized than me. I hope you enjoy your reading this week. Now that it gets dark earlier, I want to read MORE!
