It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?

Hey there!  Welcome to It’s Monday, What Are You Reading!

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. Fair warning… this meme tends to add to your reading list! ;)

Mid August?  Can you believe it?  I am 4 days out from Wine and Words 2014.  CRAZY as I have been working on this since late January when I worked on lining up the authors, building the website info and ticket sales going live in March.  We have been doing a lot of final detail work this past couple of weeks but I did manage to post a few things:

Orphan Train Bookies Review, Anniversary and Event with the author

Blossom Street Brides by Debbie Macomber (audio)

Learning how to extract honey!

Buried Memories by Irene Pence  (true crime)

Scary Stuff…. my little dog gave us quite a scare on Saturday.

 

I will probably be mostly audio this week as my schedule is pretty crazy this week.  Tomorrow we will put the final touches on the baskets for wine and words.  Tuesday and Wednesday I am out for an appointment and not sure if that will allow any reading.  Friday Wine and Words and Saturday I head for the cabin with my son.  Here is what I hope to get started on:

For My Ears

1dd

If you refuse to believe me, I will no longer consider you my son.

Daniel believed that his parents were enjoying a peaceful retirement on a remote farm in Sweden. But with a single phone call, everything changes.

Your mother…she’s not well, his father tells him. She’s been imagining things – terrible, terrible things. She’s had a psychotic breakdown, and been committed to a mental hospital.

Before Daniel can board a plane to Sweden, his mother calls: Everything that man has told you is a lie. I’m not mad… I need the police… Meet me at Heathrow.

Caught between his parents, and unsure of who to believe or trust, Daniel becomes his mother’s unwilling judge and jury as she tells him an urgent tale of secrets, of lies, of a crime and a conspiracy that implicates his own father.

In January 2010, Aubert de Villaine, the famed proprietor of the Domaine de la Romanée-Conti, the tiny, storied vineyard that produces the most expensive, exquisite wines in the world, received an anonymous note threatening the destruction of his priceless vines by poison – a crime that in the world of high-end wine is akin to murder – unless he paid a one million euro ransom. Villaine believed it to be a sick joke, but that proved a fatal miscalculation and the crime shocked this fabled region of France. The sinister story that Vanity Fair journalist Maximillian Potter uncovered would lead to a sting operation by some of France’s top detectives, the primary suspect’s suicide, and a dramatic investigation. This botanical crime threatened to destroy the fiercely traditional culture surrounding the world’s greatest wine.

Shadows in the Vineyard takes us deep into a captivating world full of fascinating characters, small-town French politics, an unforgettable narrative, and a local culture defined by the twinned veins of excess and vitality and the deep reverent attention to the land that runs through it.

 

I thin that is all I am going to plan on this big week.  Anything more is bonus.  :D

  1. The Farm sounds good! I remember seeing it before and thinking I needed to read it, and then promptly forgot about it. Lol. Have a great week, and I hope Bailey is feeling better. I do wonder if it was a seizure; it sounds like when my mom’s shih tzu has one. He has been on meds for most of his life now, and is doing pretty good.

  2. Yeah, this is a crazy week for me too. I think partly we thrive on being busy bees. Or life would be boring. :-))

  3. I can’t believe we are in mid-August either. Have a great week!

  4. Glad Bailey is doing better, fingers crossed no more scares! I’m sure all your hard work will pay off and you’ll have another hugely successful Wine and Words. I’m curious about The Farm, looking forward to your thoughts.

  5. The Farm sounds good to me. I’m happy your dog seems okay now. Try to have a relaxing week!

  6. I hope Bailey continues to be okay. Enjoy your week.

  7. Love the meme…I’m still reading Prophecy of Stones by Mishka Jenkins ;)

  8. Two books is plenty to read in one week, I think. I like the idea of “anything else is bonus.”

    Here’s my It’s Monday!

  9. I’m not really a fan of audiobooks but I would like to try it some other time. The Farm sounds interesting. Thanks for sharing!

  10. THE FARM looks really good.

    Here’s what I hope to read this week: http://justaguythatlikes2read.blogspot.com.au/2014/08/its-monday-what-are-you-reading_18.html

    Happy reading :-)

  11. Good luck with Wine and Words 2014!!! I’m sure it will be another success!

  12. Shadows in the Vineyards looks good. Good luck with Wine and Words!!

  13. RAIN SONG by Alice J. Wisler., 2008. This is an “Easy Reader” meaning the writing style flows effortlessly.

  14. I think you’ll do good to get that much done! I can’t wait to hear all about Wine and Words!

  15. Have a great week. I know Wine and Words will be the great success it has been in the past. :-)

  16. I’m hoping to convince my local library to hold an event similar to your Words and Wine, I am sure your night will be a success

  17. Both of those audio books sound thrilling! I enjoy the audio books, but I find I’m much slower with them. One audio book will take me weeks to listen to since I normally just listen while I run. Maybe I should run longer! Enjoy your week with Wine and Words.

  18. I am doing rereads this week :) :) :)

  19. The Farm looks good.

    ENJOY your week, Sheila.

  20. The trip to the cabin with your son sounds wonderful. I hope you’re able to get some down time in during this busy week!

  21. I’m so sorry to hear about your scare, and so happy to hear Bailey seems to be doing well now.

  22. How exciting that your event is finally here! Enjoy that and your audios this week.

  23. I’ll be looking for your review of The Farm. Me thinks I would like that one :-)

  24. Hi there. I’m a first time ‘linker’. The Farm sounds like a great read!

  25. Both of these sounds good! I just started Wish Her Safe at Home and it is creepy sneaky in the unfolding so far. It’s for book club and I have already heard on of my friends say she LOVED it.

  26. The Farm sounds like a page-turner! Hope Bailey is on the road to recovery. :)
