Welcome to It’s Monday!  What Are You Reading!  This is a great way to plan out your reading week and see what others are currently reading as well… you never know where that next “must read” book will come from!

I love being a part of this and I hope you do too!  As part of this weekly meme I love to encourage you all to go and visit the others participating in this meme.  I offer a weekly contest for those who visit 10 or more of the Monday Meme participants and leave a comment telling me how many you visited.  **You do not have to have a blog to participate! You receive one entry for every 10 comments, just come back here and tell me how many in the comment area.

Under the new and hopefully improved 2013 guidelines, the winner each week will receive a $5 Amazon gift card.  This past weeks winner is:

POGUE !!!!

 

Well another week has gone by and while my list of accomplishments is much… my reading is not.  However… after paining for 12 hours over the weekend I am thrilled to say I have devoured quite a bit of audio – finished two and almost done with a third.  :razz:

 

SO here is what I did manage to post this past week:

 

The Lost Summer by Louisa May Alcott (Soooooo good!)

 

 

Into The Darkest Corner by Elizabeth Haynes (Fans of Gone Girl, you much check this one out!!!)

 

 

Love Is The Cure by Elton John  (fantastic information on the continued fight against AIDS)

 

 

Killing Kennedy by Bill O’Reilly  (Superb!)

 

 

One book, three audio.  Thanks goodness for audio!  :razz:  For this week I have going:

1a12

Seventeen-year-old Lennie Walker, bookworm and band geek, plays second clarinet and spends her time tucked safely and happily in the shadow of her fiery older sister Bailey. But when Bailey dies abruptly, Lennie is catapulted to center stage of her own life – and, despite her nonexistent history with boys, suddenly finds herself struggling to balance two. Toby was Bailey’s boyfriend; his grief mirrors Lennie’s own. Joe is the new boy in town, a transplant from Paris whose nearly magical grin is matched only by his musical talent. For Lennie, they’re the sun and the moon; one boy takes her out of her sorrow, the other comforts her in it. But just like their celestial counterparts, they can’t collide without the whole wide world exploding.

I have books to finish and not really sure at this time where I will go from here so I am going to leave at this, but want to say I am currently listening to The Sky Is Everywhere and LOVING it so if you know any more books like this one let me know because I am flying through it. :D

  1. Have a great week! I’m looking forward to the books I’ve chosen.

  2. Oh the Sky is Everywhere! That one really stuck with me. I was laughing and tearing up. Goodness that’s a strong book. I listened to it too

  3. It is helpful to have audios to keep things moving. :-) Have a good week.

  4. The Elton John and Killing Kennedy books look great. Hope you have a great week!

  5. Maybe I need a project to get my audiobook listening kicked back into high gear! I liked Into The Darkest Corner, it was an amazing debut book. Have a great week Shelia.

  6. I really enjoyed the Lost Summer of Louisa May Alcott too, it was a cute account of what may have been for her :) Hope your reading week is a bit better this week!

  7. The audio you’re listening to sounds good! Like you said, thank goodness for audio books. They keep me company in the car as I drive to work.

  8. I’ve got to get back into audio … I’d get so much more read lol. The Sky Is Everywhere was breathtaking, it made my favourite list in 2010. Have a great week and happy reading :)

  9. I also enjoyed The Lost Summer, a good one!

    Actually stayed up for the Oscars tonight… posted an unedited commentary which was fun. :) Now off to bed!

    I’m reading a top secret book, love projects like this. Have an amazing week!

    ps: join me on the 100 day challenge (fitness, happiness, everything). detail on my site.

  10. I loved The Sky Is Everywhere and hope you will too!

  11. I didn’t finish reading a single book – however, I have started a good book, a sequel to a novel I read last year. Hopefully I’ll have it read for next week. :)

    At least you have audiobooks that you’ve been able to finish listening to. That’s good.

  12. I think I must check out Into the Darkest Corner after reading your review. I loved Gone Girl! I hope you have a great week!

  13. You had a great reading week! I read The Sky is Everywhere in Print and really liked it – I hope you do too.

  14. Ooh! I’ve been meaning to read The Sky Is Everywhere. Hope it’s good!
    I’m reading Chasing Jupiter: http://shesgotbooksonhermind.blogspot.com/2013/02/its-monday-what-are-you-reading-12.html

  15. Wow congrats on getting a bunch done!!! Wish I was able to do that. Haven’t heard of any of these but seriously yay for you on getting a lot done last week and I hope you get a bunch done this week too. Happy Monday!!

  16. Now I think I need to listen to The Sky is Everywhere. Enjoy your week!

  17. I LOVE The Sky is Everywhere. It’s one of my favorite books but I’ve never listened to the audio. I hope you love it!

  18. Adding all but the Bill O’reilly to my wish list, lol.

    Have a great week!

    Visited 10 blogs so far

  19. I’ve just followed some blogs to hear, I normally end up doing a book review on Mondays so I’m going to join in, I haven’t visited anyone from the links yet but I will be back to do so. I’m also going to link back here to your blog in my post.

  20. I have to repaint nearly every room in my house. It’s long overdue and I am not looking forward to it. Fortunately I have a small house. It sounds like you did accomplish a lot last week. Far more than I! I need to find a copy of “Into the Darkest Corner” though I haven’t even read Gone Girl yet. One of these days . . .

  21. I finally got a new audio book started – Flight Behavior by Barbara Kingsolver. Good so far!

    Enjoy your books this week –

  22. I’ve been wanting to read The Lost Summer of Louisa May Alcott and Killing Kennedy. Going to check out your reviews now. :)

  23. Yay I visited 11 blogs today, it’s so good to make the time to sit down and cruise around and see what people are reading, I’m usually too busy.

    I picked up a copy of The Darkest Corner last year, I think because the cover reminded me of Before I Go to Sleep. I have Gone Girl too but still haven’t found the time to read it! So busy with so many reading/reviewing commitments! I need help choosing my next book though, if you want to come offer some suggestion, Sheila!

  24. This is my first time linking up. Happy to be here. Enjoy your books! :)

  25. I’ve realized that ever since I’ve started doing the #IMWAYR meme I’m more motivated to read something. At least, one book a week. Not that I wasn’t reading much before but perhaps more consistently! Have a great reading week!
