It’s Monday! 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:
Kristen – Bookworming in the 21st Century
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
It really has been quite the week around here. I was not overly busy on the home front so was able to get a bit of reading in AND get my work outs back on track. I already can feel my energy level going up! 😀 Here’s what bookish things happened this past week:
Author Chat with Lauren Oliver, author of Before I Fall (SQUEEEEEE!!!)
I am Registered for BBAW – Book Blogger Appreciation Week
At Witt’s End by Beth Solheim – review of a cozy mystery written by a Minnesota author
Twenty Boy Summer by Sarah Ockler – book review – and ooh, what a review!
Step On A Crack by James Patterson and Michael Ledwidge – Audio review
Deliver Us From Evil by David Baldacci, available for giveaway in Hard Cover, and in Audio format.
Word Shaker On line Book Club has been dusted off, tuned up – and is finally ready to go! What are we reading? Check it out!
Born Under A Million Suns by Andrea Busfield (review coming up this week)
D U F F by Kody Keplinger (review coming this week)
Between Sisters by Kristen Hannah (still reading)
I am feeling good at this pace. I have petty much given up on Summer TV (I can never find anything on anyway) so my reading in the evenings has increased and I am really enjoying it! So whats brewing this week? PLENTY of EXCITING STUFF!!!
I have to admit, this book scares me a little. I am a huge animal lover and I just have this feeling that this one is going to be good, but also pull at my heart-strings. This review will also have a giveaway of a copy of this book.
Oh, and watch this weekend for Bookworming in the 21st Centuries Book Extravaganza – I am participating and think it will be a lot of fun! 😀
As if the books are not going to be a fun enough week, Tuesday is also my book clubs annual Queen Event and I am so excited! We dress up in formal wear and have speeches of why we should be Queen. (This is out of the book Same Sweet Girls by Cassandra King). We potluck and have a blast! I am the reining Queen and I will be passing on my crown, scepter and throne (which is a gold spray painted port a potty because that is just how classy we are! 😀 ) I love my book club and I can not wait to see what talents we have this year! **Watch the Wednesday post for the recap of this event!
Ok – enough chatter – I am ready to see what you are reading this Monday! Please enter your link where it says “click here” and I as well as hopefully many of the other wonderful Monday memers will stop in to say hi and peek at your books! 😀
