Congratulations! Please email me your book choice out of the Reading Cafe at email@example.com.
I had a 50 mile bike ride today in ST Joseph Minnesota and I am seriously wiped out so this will be short and hopefully sweet today! 😀
Here is what happened here this past week:
Total Memory Makeover by Merilu Henner
The Prophesy Sisters by Michelle Zinks (I am glad I listened to this one!)
The Fault In Our Stars by John Green (OH RAVE!!!! and GUSH!!! This is the best of the year!)
The Meryl Streep Movie Club By Mia March (grab some popcorn!!!)
Book Endings we Love and Hate (or just hate)
A pretty good week and I still have a couple audio books to review. As for this week, it is a short week for me as I have book club on Tuesday, a weekend at the cabin coming on Thursday to Saturday and then the Color Run on Sunday (more n that later this week!) So, that being said, here is my only book goals:

I loved Rebecca when I read it last year – I hope you enjoy it. Seems like it’s the time of year to re-read John Green, I’m re-reading Paper Towns right now 🙂
He is new to me Alita! I am enjoying him 🙂
I liked The Fault in Our Stars but haven’t listened to the audio book yet. I can’t remember if I read Rebecca. I know I watched the movie in my detective fiction class in college. I want to read the Meryl Streep Movie Club. I haven’t watched most of the movies mentioned but that might be an incentive to do so!
It has been fun picking through the movies and giving them a try Christina 😉
I’m finishing up Three Times Lucky by Sheila Turnage and then I think I’ll pick up Larry King’s new book. Have a great week, Sheila!
That sounds good Kathy! Have a good week as well 🙂
Congratulations on your bike ride. That is terrific and so inspiring! Great review on the Meryl Streep Movie Club. I think I need to watch some of her other films before reading the book.
Rebecca @ The Key to the Gate
Seeing the movies helps a bit – then you know what they are talking about 😉
I can’t wait to hear what you thought of Kate Atkinson’s book! It really sounds good, hope it is! 🙂 Happy reading this week!!
What Are You Reading @ the Brunette Librarian?
I have actually had this one a long time but keep passing on it… not sure why, trying it now though 😀
Hope you enjoy the Kate Atkinson book…after reading this one, I got hooked on the series.
OOH… ready to try it!
I just got the movie Rebecca from Netflix. I love the book and have read it several times, so I hope the movie does it justice! Enjoy your week!
The movie will come after the book for me – can not wait 😉
I can’t wait to see what you thought of Rebecca
I am excited to find that out as well Ryan 😀
Now that you are gushing over John Green let me go look it up. New to me.
SO far.. so awesome Mystica 😉
I have The Fault In Our Stars … I’m blaming you Sheila, now I have to bump it to the top of my list lol. Sounds like you have a fun week planned, enjoy and happy reading 🙂
Yes, you do have to bump it up Sheree 🙂 Enjoy although I do wish you had it on audio 🙂
Next weekend should be a lot of fun – I am really looking forward to it… 4 days and counting 😉
How fun that you’re doing the Color Run! The one here usually benefits AIDS in some way, I sadly missed it this year due to some other stuff I had going on. I hope you have a blast!!!
Thanks Crystal, our run benefits the homeless.I have an AIDS ride the first weekend of August -always a great ride! I am so excited by the Color Run (first time) and doing it with my college son.
Woo hoo for a bike ride and a best of the year book!
Joy’s Book Blog
Thanks Joy – I have a great post in mind for tomorrow- if only I get tie to write it 😉
I’m half way through the BBC audio version of Rebecca. And yes, it’s very good!
Great books hope you enjoy
Thank you Jess, I think I will 😀
I’ve been seeing a lot about those Color Runs – hope you have fun doing it! I wish I was a runner, but my bad knees keep me from it.
Enjoy your books this week and have fun at the cabin!
You can walk, jog…. its for all levels. I am not a runner Kristin, but I can pretend 😉
I loved the Kate Atkinson’s series, I hope you do too!
I didnt know going in that it was a series… those always worry me… so many books to read…LOL
I always smile when I visit your blog and today I am happy chair dancing too as I won this week!!!
visited 20 blogs and added 11 books to my wish list, lol
Ahhh….. I am so glad I made you smile Lori!
I still need to read The Fault in Our Stars. I was given a signed copy as a gift and I just really need to sit down and read it.
Yes, yes you do. DO it now. I will wait here. 😀
Here is mine: http://shatterbooks.blogspot.com/2012/07/its-monday-what-are-you-reading.html
I love the book Rebecca and the movie too! Total Memory Makeover sounds pretty interesting!
I commented on 10 blogs. 😉
YAY – thanks foe stopping in:)
I read Rebecca in 9th grade and loved it! I hope you enjoy it! 🙂 Here’s my It’s Monday! What are you reading? post: http://girlwithapenandadream.blogspot.com/2012/07/its-monday-what-are-you-reading.html
Rebecca is such a great book! I hope you enjoy it!
John Green…some I like, some are just okay for me. I LOVE his vlog tho. and I like him. Let me know what you think of Looking for Alaska.
Rebecca is a good one.
I’ve been wanting to read Rebecca for a while – one of the hosts of a book podcast I listen to, The Readers, is always saying it is his all-time favorite book! I will have to check this out.
And I am dying to read both The Fault in Our Stars and Looking for Alaska. I recently read my first-ever John Green novel, An Abundance of Katherines, and enjoyed it, but I’ve heard these two are his best.
Enjoy your busy week, your books, and especially your time at the cabin!
I’m picking up so many new titles ever since I started participating in this meme. Have fun at your book club and at your cabin. My book club meets this Saturday. I visited ten sites. By the way, did you get my email with my book pick for the win a few weeks ago?
I hope you enjoy Rebecca, it’s still one of my favorite books from school! I have The Fault In Our Stars here, really must bump it up the pile as so many people have loved it.
Whoops, I was too slow to make the linky list 😉 I was out of town, blah blah blah. Nevertheless, I posted my Monday meme anyway! http://therelentlessreader.blogspot.com/2012/07/book-blogger-hopits-monday-072312.html Have a great week of reading everyone!
