It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?
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.

I just got home about an hour ago from being at our cabin this weekend. We never get there enough! I was hoping it would be more reading time than it was, but instead my friend Wendy and I talked a lot (A LOT) and watched many episodes of Season One Gilmore Girls which was pretty cool too. 😀
So, looking back on a very crazy busy week of training a new office manager and regular life commitments, here is what happened at Book Journey:
I’d Know You Anywhere by Laura Lippman (audio review, my first Lippman and oh yeah – there will be more!)
Alice’s tea Cup by Haley Fox and Lauren Fox (super awesome book with recipes for a tea and scones, and other melt in your mouth treats!)
What would your name have been? (I am curious to know if you had been born the opposite sex, what your name was planned to be)
The Lorax by Dr. Seuss (A late banned book review)
What is it with me and Jayne Eyre? Yes, I admit to my constant battle with this woman. 😛
Sylvia – Movie Review. The book The Bell Jar left me wanting to know more about Sylvia Plath and this movie fed that need to understand this woman more.
I did get some reading done this weekend and have a few exciting review to write this week on books and audio I think many of you will enjoy!
As for this weeks plan, here is what I will be reading:
This is our November book club read and I am curious about this one. Set in renaissance Italy in 1482, it is the story of a prostitute who steals a small portrait from a painter and opens up a whole lot of trouble she was not looking for. When people close to her start dying she flees with the one man she can trust, Brother Guido who has been trying to convert her.
For the love of Adriana Trigiani, look what popped into my mailbox recently? This book will be released tot he public on November 9th and I want to be sure my review is ready to roll. I will also be chatting with Adriana about this book, and her upcoming books to movies (SSSSQQQUUUEEEEEE!!!)
I want to list more but I have a few I want to finish this week from recent weeks so I am going to refrain. Seriously though, I had an amazing reading week so make sure you watch this weeks reviews because I can not wait to share them with you! 😀
In the meantime, I hope you are going to let me know what you have been reading this past week and what you plan to read this coming week. I love seeing what is on your agenda! Please add you link below:
