Hey there! Welcome to It’s Monday, What Are You Reading!
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. Fair warning… this meme tends to add to your reading list!
I just landed back in Minnesota late last night. The Book Expo was a lot of fun but I am ready to be back to my regularly scheduled life. 🙂 As you can probably guess with me running around New York all last week that not a lot was posted. I did manage to put some posts up at the Armchair BEA site which I will link as well as what I have completed here:
Live From BEA: Interview with Author Bette Lee Crosby
The Summer Of Letting Go by Gae Polisner (audio)
Life From Bea: From The Expo Floor
Awkward Moments At The Book Expo
Live From BEA The Grudge Keeper by Mara Rockliff and Peachtree Publishing
File Under 13 Suspicious Incidents by Lemony Snicket (fun audio!)
Live From BEA: Kristin Haas and Arbordale Publishing
Oh my gosh! I actually posted a lot. ROCKSTAR! LOL
So what is on deck for this week? So glad you asked!
For My Ears
When Saba Khan’s apartment burns in a mysterious fire, possibly a hate crime, her Chicago high school rallies around her. Her family moves rent-free into a luxury apartment, Saba’s Facebook page explodes, and she starts (secretly) dating a popular boy. Then a quirky piece of art donated to a school fund-raising effort for the Khans is revealed to be an unknown work by famous outsider artist Henry Danger, worth hundreds of thousands of dollars, and Saba’s life turns upside down again. Should Saba’s family have all that money? Or should it go to the students who found the art? Or to the school? And just what caused that fire?
Vacationing at a luxurious Tuscan island resort, Nicolas Duhamel is hopeful that the ghosts of his past have finally been put to rest… Now a bestselling author, when he was twenty-four years old, he stumbled upon a troubling secret about his family – a secret that was carefully concealed. In shock, Nicholas embarked on a journey to uncover the truth that took him from the Basque coast to St. Petersburg – but the answers wouldn’t come easily.
In the process of digging into his past, something else happened. Nicolas began writing a novel that was met with phenomenal success, skyrocketing him to literary fame whether he was ready for it or not – and convincing him that he had put his family’s history firmly behind him. But now, years later, Nicolas must reexamine everything he thought he knew, as he learns that, however deeply buried, the secrets of the past always find a way out.
For My Eyes

Glad you had a great time at BEA. I enjoyed reading all about it.
It was so much fun to see you again. I’m impressed at all the photos you took. I just realized today that I didn’t take the first one.
I wish I would have taken more – I missed a lot and have no pictures of all of us together 🙂
Sounds like you had a great time at BEA. Hope you have a great week!
You did get a lot posted for no doubt being very busy. Glad you had a good time. Enjoy your reading this week.
Thank you Martha!
One of these days- I will attend BEA! You did get a lot posted- good job!!!! Looks like a lot of fun
Thanks and yes, go to BEA!
Welcome back! I’m glad you had a good time! I enjoyed Sarah’s Key by Tatiana de Rosnay. I need to read some of her other work as well. Have a great week!
Thanks Jen 🙂
The Art of Secrets sounds fascinating! I look forward to reading your review.
I am glad you had fun at BEA. I hope to go someday but I’m not sure I will brave NYC. Now if they moved it somewhere else…
Sounds like a great event….and that you are glad to be home. Enjoy your week!
BEA sounds heavenly. Glad you were able to balance real life and blogging!
BEA sounds brilliant … one day, well I’ll settle for a trip to the US, BEA would be a bonus lol. The Other Story sounds great and I’m drawn to the cover. Have a wonderful week and happy reading 🙂
Glad you had such a great time at BEA!
I think you might have posted more than me and I was only doing Armchair BEA! I really want to go to BEA some time soon, but the prospect of it somehow scares me a little bit as well! But going back to a regular schedule is quite nice as well! ‘The Other Story’ sounds really nice! I hope you enjoy your reads! My Monday post

Thanks for sharing your BEA experiences!
Looks like you had a great time at BEA…. one of these years I’ll get there!
Welcome home! Thanks for sharing all of your BEA fun with us 😀 Have a great week
Wow, you did post a lot! I’m impressed. BEA sounds like it was a lot of fun (though exhausting!). I only did it from home and am glad to be back to a “normal” week (though it was fun!).
Enjoy your books this week –
2014 Big Book Summer Challenge
Man! You are a rock star for posting that much while you were in NYC. Color me impressed.
I could easily start both of these books. Yummy!
Wow, Sheila! I’m TOTALLY impressed that you were able to blog this much during BEA! I didn’t expect it, but should’ve known better lol I think I need to get your daily digest instead of weekly lol Thanks for all this!
Well, I now want to dive into THE OTHER STORY, so thank you for leading me to that book! I finished a cozy mystery a few minutes ago and wrote about it here: http://yarnknitreadlit.blogspot.com/2014/06/framed-in-lace.html
Hi–I linked up to this for the first time! It’s great to be able to check in with other bloggers and see what everyone is reading for the week! (Leila from Readers’ Oasis, http://www.leilarice.blogspot.com)
