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! 😉

It has been a good week and weekend, we went to a wedding, we celebrated my hubby’s birthday, we hung out with friends, I was stung by bees…..

For My Ears


ellen archer 3

Australian triplets Lyn, Cat, and Gemma Kettle are about to turn thirty-three and one is pregnant, one has just had her life turned upside down, and one is only just keeping hers from skidding off the fast lane. Meanwhile, their divorced parents have been behaving very oddly indeed.

In this family comedy by Liane Moriarty, we follow the three Kettle sisters through their tumultuous thirty-third year — as they deal with sibling rivalry and secrets, revelations and relationships, unfaithful husbands and unthinkable decisions, and the fabulous, frustrating life of forever being part of a trio.


It’s Moriarty!

Liz Daniels has every reason to be happy about setting off on a rare family vacation, leaving behind her remote home in the Adirondack Mountains for a while. Instead, she feels uneasy. Her children, eight-year-old Reid and six-year-old Ally, have met their paternal grandparents only a handful of times. But Liz’s husband, Paul, has decided that, despite a strained relationship with his mother and father, they should visit the farm in western New York where he spent his childhood.

On their way to the farm, the family stops at a hotel for the night. In the morning, when Liz goes to check on her sleeping children, all her anxiety comes roaring back: Ally and Reed are nowhere to be found. Blind panic slides into ice-cold terror as the hours tick by without anyone finding a trace of the kids. Soon, Paul and Liz are being interviewed by police, an Amber Alert is issued, and detectives are called in.

Frantic worry and helplessness threaten to overtake Liz’s mind—but in a sudden, gut-wrenching instant she realizes that it was no stranger who slipped into the hotel room that night. Someone she trusted completely has betrayed her. Though she knows that Ally and Reid are safe, Liz will stop at nothing to find them and get them back. From her guarded in-laws’ unwelcoming farmhouse to the deep woods of her own hometown, Liz follows the threads of a terrible secret to uncover a hidden world created from dreams and haunted by nightmares.

  1. Yes, it looks like a good posting week for you.
    I like your short hair! Everyone liked my buzz when it started growing back that I am keeping it really short. Looks like Jamie Lee Curtis — just wish the rest of me looked like her. It is so easy too.
    Ruin Falls got my heart beat up just reading the description.
    I hope you have another good week.

  2. I just started reading (short) books for Banned Books Week. Where does the time go? It seems like I was just doing this last week but it’s already been a year! Enjoy your week!

  3. I love, love, love your haircut …
    Can’t wait for your thoughts on Three Wishes, I love Liane Moriarty but that’s another one I haven’t read! Have a great week and happy reading 🙂

  4. Three Wishes sounds really good. I’d probably check it out in book format since my eyeballs are a lot better than my ears at comprehending words. Haha.

    And ouch! So sorry about the bees. Although that Botox effect… 😛

  5. I read your review of Joan Rivers book – I don’t want to read it – like yourself I am not appreciative of a lot of shocking language. However I occasionally watched Fashion Police and listening to those she worked with, it sounds a little like we saw a persona and they saw a kinder compassionate woman.
    Another Liane Moriarty book to read and catch up on – I look forward to it in my future.

  6. any book which has Kettle as their characters surname must be a good read. The other day you reviewed Shadows in the Vineyard and I mentioned I was about start reading it. Seems I jumped too quickly, I can’t get it in South Africa via Amazon #miffedofnote

  7. I’m reading Afterworlds by Scott Westerfeld. I haven’t read any YA for a while and this sounded like an interesting concept.
    I also have a sci-fi short story collection called Upgraded. All original stories about cyborgs. I’ve read a few of the stories and so far they are pretty good.
    I also have a couple of days left on the giveaway of 2 hardcover copies of Ark Storm. US and Canada only.

  8. I love your haircut. Very cute on you.

    Nice week. I have been wanting to read Mr. Penumbra’s 24-hour book store.

    ENJOY this week. Hope your weather isn’t too bad. It is chilly here in Pittsburgh. I like the heat better. 🙂


  9. I want to go back and read Liane Moriarty’s back list and am thinking audio might be the way to go! How are you liking Three Wishes so far?

    Have a great week!

  10. Guess we are all in agreement , your haircut is cute on you. I wish I even wanted to share a picture of myself! NOT! Your books both look good, two very different reads. I am anxious to hear what you think of Ruin Falls. It sounds really riveting.

  11. Sounds like you had a busy week but also a very productive reading and blogging week!

    I read This Is Where I Leave You when it first came out and loved it – laugh out loud funny but also warm and touching. My favorite Jonathon Tropper is The Book of Joe which was made into a TV show, October Road – loved both the book and TV show.

    Enjoy your books this week!
