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!
Another week and now July…. wha? Hold the phone… JULY????? Where is my lovely summer going so fast?
I had a fairly good week, seems like I am listening to audio and reading but between work and helping in the bee yard (more to come about that) I am wiped out hen I get home and writing reviews just seems like too much work. I am currently 5 reviews behind. EEP!
Here is what I was able to post this week:
Midwinterblood by Marcus Sedwick (short stories that all tie together in a mystical place)
How To Become A Narrator by Narrator Robert Fass (the last of the narrator interviews and giveaway!)
Preparing for the Queen Event (and a few shots of the Bookies Queen events of the past few years)
The Young World by Weitz (YOWZA!!! This one is going places! LOVED IT!)
Essentialism – The Disciplined Pursuit Of Less by Greg McKeown (this one beat me up…)
The Dinner by Herman Koch (deliciously dangerous….)
This week is a busy one with a Friends Of The Library Meeting, an author event, and a children’s book sale on Thursday and Friday. The weekend should be a little quieter and I hope to be enjoying…
For My Ears
Once again Dorothea Benton Frank takes us deep into the heart of her magical South Carolina Lowcountry on a tumultuous journey filled with longings, disappointments, and, finally, a road toward happiness that is hard earned. There we meet three generations of women buried in secrets. The Lowcountry has endured its share of war and bloodshed like the rest of the South, but this storm season we watch Maisie, Liz, and Ashley deal with challenges that demand they face the truth about themselves.
Started listening to this one today while mowing… LOVE Robin Miles narration of these southern books… AMAZING LISTENING!
The year is 2113. In Jenna Strong’s world, ACID—the most brutal controlling police force in history—rule supreme. No throwaway comment or whispered dissent goes unnoticed—or unpunished. And it was ACID agents who locked Jenna away for life, for a horrendous crime she struggles to remember. But Jenna’s violent prison time has taught her how to survive by any means necessary. When a mysterious rebel group breaks her out, she must use her strength, speed, and skill to stay one step ahead of ACID and try to uncover the truth about what really happened on that terrible night two years ago. They’ve taken her life, her freedom, and her memories away from her. How can she reclaim anything when she doesn’t know who to trust?
For My Eyes
Same things as last week 😉

It’s crazy, the summer is already flying.
The Hurricane Sisters sounds good. Enjoy and have a great week!
It has been really enjoyable so far 🙂
Wow, how many books do you read per week on average?
Depends on the week but with audio I am usually at 3 or 4.
Hmm I like Dorothea Benton Frank so will watch out for this one.
I listened to her last book on audio too (same audio) SOOOOO GOOD!
Between company, work, and the holiday, I am WAY behind on reviews – I don’t even want to think about how far. Have a great week!
Thanks Kathy you too!
The Young World does sound good, I’m curious about it after seeing your review. What’s this about bees? 🙂
Oh you shall see Greg… you shall see 😀 More to come about the bees.
The year is going by fast. Audio helps me read more too, 🙂 I hope your week is lovely!
I want to read The Hurricane Sisters. I will have to look into The Young World too. Thanks for reminding me about it. Even if I don’t read it I will probably buy it for my library. Have a great week!
Great – your library must have The Young World 😀
The Hurricane Sisters is on my list…enjoy your week!
Super! Thanks Laurel 🙂
I have The Hurricane Sisters to read but I bet listening to the audio is a good experience, especially if the narrator has a Southern accent to convey the right atmosphere.
I have the book too but knew I would get to it faster on audio.
I’ve wanted to read Midwinterblood ever since it won the Printz this year, but haven’t gotten to it yet! The Hurricane Sisters looks good. Happy reading!
Did it really win an award? I did not know that 🙂
The Hurricane Sister and Acid look like good reads, and I am very intrigued by The Dinner.
Its a fun mix 🙂
Acid seems like a really good book. I would like to read that one. The title caught my curiosity. Have never heard the word essentialism. That’s a new one for me. Glad you told the meaning. Have a good week.
I am curious about it 🙂
The Young World sounds interesting. I’ll keep an eye out on that. Lots of directors putting out books, it seems!
I think it s fun to see them try their hand at writing. This one works 🙂
I am looking forward to reading The Hurricane Sisters. Love Dorothea’s books.
ENJOY your busy week.
I can’t believe it is July already either. Days just go too quickly. You will get your reviews done.
I sould have some down time tonight to catch up a bit 😉
I loved The Hurricane Sisters – I read it, but can just imagine how good the audio is. I had listened to The Last Original Wife by DBF and loved it!!! Her books are perfect audios!!!
Have a great week!!!
I just adore the narrators accent 🙂
My SIL was visiting over the long holiday weekend and she was raving about Hurricane Sisters, too! Adding to my list…
I’ll check out Young World, since you loved it. Have a great week.
I love Dorothea Benton Frank, and I can’t wait to read Hurricane Sisters!
The Hurricane Sisters seems like the perfect read to take on our vacation to Charleston in a few weeks. I love reading stories set in the places I visit.
Ooohhh Acid sounds good!
Enjoy your book filled week, Sheila!
The Hurricane Sisters sounds like a good one, well, as soon as I get out of hurricane country for the summer, that is!
The Hurricane Sisters looks like the perfect summer read! Have a great week, Sheila!
My review of The Hurricane Sisters will post in a couple of days. I LOVE Robin Miles’ narration of DBF’s books. So much fun to listen to.
