It’s Monday, What Are You Reading?

This is a weekly meme hosted by J Kaye’s Blog.  I enjoy doing this because it allows me each Monday to browse the book shelves and set a plan of what I would like to accomplish in reading for the week.  To me, it’s kind of like shopping in a book store all over again :)


This morning I grabbed my coffee cup…. browsed the shelves and came out with this:


It looks like a lofty goal but it really isn’t.

Say You’re One of Them is audio so that can play in the car and when I am working around the house.  I probably will not get it finished this week, but I will be started on it.


Shadow of Tears I have been working on.  It is about escaping Iran so it is a bit heavy and I have not been able to read it straight through.  I am hoping to finish it this week.


The Smart One and The Pretty One I started on yesterday  and I am flying through this delightful read.


The Readers Choice:  200 Book Club Favorites is a book I am just itching to get into…. its a book on books and what is not to love?  :)


Children Of Dust is one I planned on reading in Honduras and did not get to it.  This one will be the one that I will probably be spending the most time reading this week.


The Possibility of Everything is on tour this Wednesday and I finished this a couple weekends ago when I had some down time.  This one is on tour this Wednesday.


God Gave Us Love and God Gave Us Christmas are also on tour this week.  These will go up wither later today or tomorrow.


Currently I have quite a few books done that are waiting on their review.  I am trying to get a review up a day, two if I can do so without crowding them….  I would love to know what you are reading this week!  Stop over at J Kayes Blog and add your post to the link so I can stop by as well as others!

  1. The Possibility of Everything sounds like a great book. Very uplifting.

  2. Shadow of Tears sounds really interesting, but intense. I gave you an award here:

  3. Hi Sheila, just posted on the Constant Princess, thanks again for sending it to me, I quite enjoyed it! Now I will have to pass it along to my mom to read.

  4. Hi, “The Smart One and the Pretty One” is a book I’ve been eyeing for awhile.

    I’ll probably skip the heavy ones for now, as I already have a few of those on my stacks!

    My link is at J. Kaye’s, but I’ll put it here, too!

  5. Hey there, Sheila! I can’t wait for your review of Say You’re One of Them. I’ve been holding off buying this book for the longest time.

  6. The Readers Choice is something I’ll look for. Have a good week!

  7. The Smart One and the Pretty One sounds like so much fun.

  8. I LOVE books about books! I don’t know why, I just do :) Looks like you do, as well. Yay.

    I’ve heard about every book on your list. Sometimes I go to blogs and haven’t heard of any of the books listed, but yours is interesting. Look forward to hearing what you think about all of them.

    Hope you have a great week of reading and may you get them all read!

  9. What an interesting assortment. I have Children of Dust waiting too but think I’ll leave until after Xmas.

    Happy reading!

  10. This is the first time I’ve heard of Shadow of Tears — it really intrigues me. I also want to read Children of Dust.

    My Monday post is here: It’s Monday, What Are You Reading?

  11. Hi Sheila.

    You have a very intersting line up for reads this week.
    The Smart One and The Pretty One does sound like a delightful read. I look forward to reading what you think of the story.

    Happy Reading to you this week!!

  12. I still think it looks ambitious. :-)

  13. So many great ones there!! I just love the idea of a book about books!! :)

    • I do too Staci! I wish I knew who sent them! I received three books like this – about book clubs, mother daughter reading, and this one. The package had no markings and there was no info inside.

  14. Two reviews a day? Wow, you’re reading at a pace I can’ t even hope to keep up with!

    • Hi Lisa – I am not reading that fast, I am that behind on reviews! :) When I went to Honduras I read about 5 books while I was there and when I returned I of course was still reading more and catching up on other things as well so I got behind on posting reviews. I am trying to get to the point where I am caught up and I am hoping this will do it. :)

  15. Shadow of Tears-sounds like my type of book.

  16. Wow–this is a great stack. Very exciting to see my newest book in it. I’m looking forward to being part of the tour on Wednesday.
    I am in awe that you can read this many books in a single week! I’m in the middle of The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruis Zafon and with only about 30 minutes per night to read it’s slow going. Wonderful book, though, so I don’t mind–I won’t want it to end.

    • Thanks Hope! Some of the books are different sizes (two childrens reads this week) and others have been read (like yours) and just waiting for the tour. :) I have a lot of down time with two grown boys who no longer live at home and a husband who works from 5 am – 6 pm and then is in bed by 8:30 pm. I am a sort of knight owl and would rather read than watch tv. :)
