First off – Happy Halloween or if you are reading this on Monday, November 1…. Happy belated Halloween. I put up a fun interview late afternoon on Sunday and if you have not checked it out I hope you do as there is a giveaway attached to it. (See link below)
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:
Sharon from Garden Of Books

This week was kind of funny as all three of the audio I had been listening to for weeks (one in the kitchen, one in the car, and one in my I POD) all finished this week. It was like an audio rush…. not only to write reviews, but also to pick out three more! (That’s the fun part!) 😀
Here is what happened in the House of Books this past week:
My interview with the Witch from Snow White (This is the one I mentioned above – check it out!)
The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot (audio review and wow – AMAZING!)
The Island by Elin Hilderbrand (audio review)
The Postcard killers by James Patterson (audio review – not a fav….)
Wig Begone by Charles Courtney ( book review -fun read!)
The DUFF by Kody Keplinger (book review)
A Fine White Dust by Cynthia Rylant (audio review)
Left To Tell by Immaculee Ilibagiza (review to come this week)
HIDE! by Jeff Foxworthy (review to come this week)
Silence by Shusako Endo (still completing)
This week I am hosting my first special event in my new position so that will take up some of my reading time and this coming weekend I have a girls weekend at our cabin where we are spending the weekend making crafts, baking cookies for Christmas, and watching chick flicks. YAY!!! That too will swallow up some reading time so in light of all of that – here is my plan for this week:
I haven’t read Lehane in a long time but loved his writing in Mystic River and Shutter Island (both movies I couldn’t stand but LOVED the books! I cant wait to try him in the new release!
I have watched this one be raved about all summer from afar….. and now FINALLY I have captured this read for my I POD and I am starting it today!
Audio for my kitchen CD player and I started this one today as well. The synopsis of this one is haunting and something I have come to appreciate in Laura Lippman’s writing…. which you are about to see because look below…..
Yup – another Laura Lippman, this one is for my car. My Lippman phase was not intentional, they both just came into the library for me at the same time so… well, here we go! 😀
You can click on any of the above pictures to take you to more information about the reads.
So that is where I am this week. I can’t wait to see what you are all reading. It seems like life has been so busy lately I hardly have time to get around and see your posts and if I have missed you recently I apologize, and am hopeful that as my life is getting somewhat back to normal that I will be able to visit all of your posts today.
Please add your link to your Monday What Are You Reading post below and have a super fantastic week! 😀
