It’s Monday! What Are You Reading is where we share what we read this past week, what we hope to read this week…. and anything in between! D This is a great way to plan out your reading week and see what others are currently reading as well… you never know where that next “must read” book will come from!
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 telling me how many you visited. **You do not have to have a blog to participate! You receive one entry for every 10 comments, just come back here and tell me how many in the comment area.
**Updates have been made to the Reading Cafe Grab shelves!
What a week…. I feel 1,000 percent better with my back and back to my old ways of reading, roller blading, biking, and kick boxing (actually I go back to kick boxing tomorrow). I did get in some good reading time – not as much as I would have liked but I have had such a nice reading run as of late that I just thirst for more booktime 😉
Here is what last week looked like:
I have a couple of audio ending here shortly and I am looking forward to pressing on from there… here is what looks like will happen this week:
Clara’s relationship with Christian is intense from the start, and like nothing she’s ever experienced before. But what starts as devotion quickly becomes obsession, and it’s almost too late before Clara realizes how far gone Christian is–and what he’s willing to do to make her stay.
Now Clara has left the city—and Christian—behind. No one back home has any idea where she is, but she still struggles to shake off her fear. She knows Christian won’t let her go that easily, and that no matter how far she runs, it may not be far enough….
Ok like…. everyone is reading this! Seriously…a round the blogs this is popping up so I had to see what is happening here with Deb Caletti!
It’s really going to happen. They said it would, but this is quicker than anyone thought. Everyone has to die. We all know it. With only a few months of life left, sixteen-year-old Tessa knows it better than most. She’s made a list, though ten things she wants to do before she dies. Number one is sex. Starting tonight. But getting what you want isn’t easy. And getting what you want doesn’t always give you what you need. And sometimes the most unexpected things become important.
I found this on my weekend adventures to the library. I know nothing about this author or the book other than the synopsis. Sounds like a perfect way to get into a read.
In many ways, Jack is a typical 5-year-old. He likes to read books, watch TV, and play games with his Ma. But Jack is different in a big way–he has lived his entire life in a single room, sharing the tiny space with only his mother and an unnerving nighttime visitor known as Old Nick. For Jack, Room is the only world he knows, but for Ma, it is a prison in which she has tried to craft a normal life for her son. When their insular world suddenly expands beyond the confines of their four walls, the consequences are piercing and extraordinary.
I read and reviewed ROOM last year. It is on my list for this week because my book club will be reading it for our May 10 meeting and I need a little refresher course. If you have not experienced ROOM…. you need to and hopefully my book club review will light a fire to make that happen…. paperback edition comes out on May 18.
It took only one look for Genna Hastings to make up her mind about her new next-door neighbor, J. J. Hennessy. She knew his type all too well: Jared Jay Hennessy was tall and handsome, a man who thought he was God’s gift to women. From the pink flamingos dotting his front yard to the all-night boozy barbecues, he threatened to disrupt Genna’s peaceful summer off from teaching. But beneath his carefree smile and teasing nature, J.J. was a man as serious about the future as he was about Genna. He’d come to this quiet Connecticut town to change his life, and he challenged Genna to help him become Mr. Right. It was a challenge she knew she’d be smart to refuse . . . and one J.J. knew she couldn’t resist.
Not my normal type of read but I found this at the library and I am interest in this book by Tami Hoag as 1) she is a Minnesota author and 2) she usually writes good mysteries…. nothing like this…. so we will see 😛
In the fall of 2002, 41-year-old Kate Cypher, a divorced Seattle school nurse, returns to New Hope, the decaying Vermont hippie commune where she grew up, to visit her elderly mother, Jean, who’s suffering from Alzheimer’s. Kate has avoided New Hope since the grizzly, unsolved murder of her fifth-grade friend, Del Griswold, 31 years earlier. Kate fears she betrayed Del, a free-spirited farm girl. Did her betrayal cause Del’s death? Who killed Del? Another local girl is murdered in a similar manner at the time of Kate’s return. Could the killer be loose again? Meanwhile, Jean appears to be possessed with Del’s spirit and may have the answers to these questions. As Kate investigates, she learns stunning truths about many events and people from her youth.
Oh yeah….. this one I have been waiting for! This is for a blog tour this Tuesday.
So that’s my week… I am a little heavy on the audio as I will get in a bonus 6 hours when I drive to the bike ride in the cities next Saturday morning.
I am excited to see what you are reading this week! I hope to get around to all of you so be sure to link up below where it says “click here” have a super reading week!
