It’s Monday! (Ok really it is Sunday when I am posting this but I am in Florida and I fly home tomorrow morning – 3 planes, and … well, you get the point… 😀
What Are You Reading, is where we gather to share what we have read this past week and what we plan to read this week. It is a great way to network with other bloggers, see some wonderful blogs, and put new titles on your reading list.
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. You receive one entry for every 10 comments, just come back here and tell me how many in the comment area.
Last weeks winner (using Random.Org) was:
Congratulations! Please choose an item out of the PRIZE BOX and email me your choice with your mailing address as well! firstname.lastname@example.org
*** And a note on this – I will be adding to the prize box soon! Just need to get home and do a bit of organizing!
This past week has been crazy between work and life and this trip to Florida when I left home Thursday morning to visit my son in the Navy. As crazy as it was…. with planes and beach time (pause for dramatic effect….. I do love the beach) I was able to get a bit of reading in:
Wildflowers of Terezin by Robert Elmer (smoking good book with incredible characters)
Finally Changed The Blog Name! Memers – do not panic, no changes to the meme or linking will take place – all stays the same 🙂
Brava Valentine by Adriana Trigiani (If you are not a Trigiani fan – you should be – check out this author!)
Little Bee by Chris Cleave (our April Book Club read)
Sand In My Bra and by Funny Women From The Road (a great read for travelers!)
Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins (if it is not on your TBR – put it there!)
Whats On Brew This Week?
I am going to try (try) to be realistic this week. I am possibly…. probably running a 5K this Friday with my friend Heidi so my reading time this week may be a bit of training time. On Saturday my friend Amy and I are driving to the cities and on Sunday we are biking the Ironman bike ride in Lakeville.… our goal is the 65 mile route. I am going to get reading in…. after all I do have the plane ride tomorrow….
Devastating, hopeful, hopeless, playful . . . in words and illustrations, Ingrid left behind a painful farewell in her journal for Caitlin. Now Caitlin is left alone, by loss and by choice, struggling to find renewed hope in the wake of her best friend’s suicide. With the help of family and newfound friends, Caitlin will encounter first love, broaden her horizons, and start to realize that true friendship didn’t die with Ingrid. And the journal which once seemed only to chronicle Ingrid’s descent into depression, becomes the tool by which Caitlin once again reaches out to all those who loved Ingrid – and Caitlin herself
Yes – yes – yes, you have seen this one on my list before. It has become the book that I just do not get too and now I am (hopefully) reading it (maybe) this week.
Yet today you will hopefully stop in to see my wonderful author chat with the fascinating Kay Cassidy about her newly released book, The Cinderella Society! I am so excited to chat with her and I really hope you will stop in and learn more about Kay the book, and what’s next! Oops – did I say too much? 😉
Ok – don’t forget to sign the McKlinky so I and hopefully many of you, can stop in and see the other Monday memers!
