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! 😉
October! Enough said! Seriously though… October? Here is what I posted this past week:

This Is Where I Leave You Book VS. Movie
This week is going to be bookish! Tomorrow we are having our first ever friends of the library recap and retreat. On Wednesday and Thursday I will be at the Minnesota Library Association meeting and then home on Friday. It is going to be fun! Here is what I have planned for the week:
For My Ears
When unlikely friends Madeline, Avery, and Nicole arrive in Miami’s South Beach neighborhood, they’re hoping for a do-over. Literally. They’ve been hired to bring a historic house back to its former glory on a new television show called Do Over. If they can just get this show off the ground, Nikki could fix her finances, Avery could restart her career, and Maddie would have a shot at keeping her family together.
The women quickly realize that having their work broadcast is one thing, but having their personal lives play out on TV is another. Soon they’re struggling to hold themselves, and the project, together. With a decades-old mystery—and hurricane season—looming, the women are forced to figure out just how they’ll weather life’s storms . . .
It was just another ordinary day at McKinley High–until a massive explosion devastated the school. When loner David Thorpe tried to help his English teacher to safety, the teacher convulsed and died right in front of him. And that was just the beginning.
A year later, McKinley has descended into chaos. All the students are infected with a virus that makes them deadly to adults. The school is under military quarantine. The teachers are gone. Violent gangs have formed based on high school social cliques. Without a gang, you’re as good as dead. And David has no gang. It’s just him and his little brother, Will, against the whole school.
For my Eyes
Tender at the Bone is the story of a life determined, enhanced, and defined in equal measure by unforgettable people, the love of tales well told, and a passion for food. In other words, the stuff of the best literature. The journey begins with Reichl’s mother, the notorious food-poisoner known for-evermore as the Queen of Mold, and moves on to the fabled Mrs. Peavey, onetime Baltimore socialite millionaress, who, for a brief but poignant moment, was retained as the Reichls’ maid. Then we are introduced to Monsieur du Croix, the gourmand, who so understood and yet was awed by this prodigious child at his dinner table that when he introduced Ruth to the soufflé, he could only exclaim, “What a pleasure to watch a child eat her first soufflé!” Then, fast-forward to the politically correct table set in Berkeley in the 1970s, and the food revolution that Ruth watched and participated in as organic became the norm. But this sampling doesn’t do this character-rich book justice. After all, this is just a taste.

– I need to read In True Blood as ‘enjoy’ a good true crime too.
Yay I love Wendy Wax’s Beach series, enjoy …The House on Mermaid Point is fantastic so you’ve got more good to come 🙂
I hope Quarantine is good, I’m a total germophobe and I love contagion stories. Have a great week and happy reading.
I am planning to read the Wendy Wax books. Maybe I will pick them up this winter when I will be longing for warm weather. Actually I think it is cold now and it is in the 50s.
Have fun at the Friends of the Library retreat and library association meeting.
I visit everyday some web pages and websites to read content, but this web site offers feature based content.
I’ve been wanting to read the Wendy Wax series for a while now – enjoy! My book club enjoyed Tender at the Bone many years ago, too.
The Wendy Wax series is a fun series – I hope you enjoy Ocean Beach. I just recently read the most recent one, The House on Mermaid Point.
Have a great week!
I loved Tender at the Bone! Would love to reread Reichl one of these days.
Have fun! I am sure that you will! Are you meeting all new people?
Ruth Reichl is a fantastic writer. Have you read any of her previous books before. Happy reading!
My Monday is shameful. I am still plugging away on two books on my table for three weeks now. 😦 I did put Go Ask Alice in my TBR tho….
THANKS FOR SHARING 😀
Quarantine looks really good. The description reminds me of Lord of the Flies in some ways.
Another fantastic week for you.
Sounds like you have a fun-filled bookish week coming up!
I loved Tender at the Bone – hope you enjoy it, too. I’ve been reading lots of spooky stuff for October!
Enjoy your books and events this week –
Book By Book
In Cold Blood and Go Ask Alice so remind me of high school! Loved seeing them on this list. Also – I’m going to start linking up to the meme in a week or so…after my half marathon is over and I stop the Running N Reading monday link-up I’m currently doing.
Oooh – I really want to read that Ruch Reichl
Enjoyed the Reichl books, hope you know it’s a trilogy!
