It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?


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 is hard to believe I have now been home over a week.  I guess with Thanksgiving and the hustle with that life really did not slow down until Friday afternoon after everyone was gone and I had the house to myself.  Then Saturday afternoon I started to get sick and that has hung on through today.  Gah… go figure.  On a happier note… here is what I posted this week:


The Wild Truth by Carine McCandless

Food by Jim Gaffigan

Meritropolis by Joel Ohman – YA Dystopian 99 cents on Kindle today!

Mockingjay Book vs. Movie

Harry Potter Readalong – House Points and Giveaways and YOU still can join in!


That’s the week.  Today I listened to audio while resting and finished the Diane Chamberlain I was listening to. So Good!  Cant wait to review it!

Here is the plan for this week:


For My Ears


Moving the Needle provides both the “kick in the pants” and the game plan many of us need to break out of the rut and get moving to achieve our goals. CEOs, vice presidents, professionals, military personnel, and even college students frequently express frustration at the entrenched status quo, in which initiating progress feels like moving mountains.





Born during a Christmas blizzard, Jane Williams receives a rare gift: the ability to literally see true love. Jane has emerged from an ailing childhood a lonely, hopeless romantic when, on her 29th birthday, she receives a card from the midwife who delivered her. Jane must identify the six types of love before the full moon following her 30th birthday – or face grave consequences. When Jane falls for a science writer who doesn’t believe in love, she fears that her fate is sealed.




Following his blockbuster biography of Steve Jobs, The Innovators is Walter Isaacson’s revealing story of the people who created the computer and the Internet. It is destined to be the standard history of the digital revolution and an indispensable guide to how innovation really happens. What were the talents that allowed certain inventors and entrepreneurs to turn their visionary ideas into disruptive realities? What led to their creative leaps? Why did some succeed and others fail?


For My Eyes


While his successful wife goes off to her law office each day, Simon Connolly takes care of their kids, Jake and Laney. Now that they are in high school, the angst-ridden father should feel more relaxed, but he doesn’t. He’s seen the statistics, read the headlines. And now, his darkest fear is coming true. There has been a shooting at school.

Simon races to the rendezvous point, where he’s forced to wait. Do they know who did it? How many victims were there? Why did this happen? One by one, parents are led out of the room to reunite with their children. Their numbers dwindle, until Simon is alone.

As his worst nightmare unfolds, and Jake is the only child missing, Simon begins to obsess over the past, searching for answers, for hope, for the memory of the boy he raised, for mistakes he must have made, for the reason everything came to this. Where is Jake? What happened in those final moments? Is it possible he doesn’t really know his son? Or he knows him better than he thought?

  1. We have a little sickness wending its way through our house too, so it’s been pretty low key here this weekend. Which is fine really- nice to relax. Hope you feel better, and glad you had a good Thanksgiving. Liked your Mockingjay post -I want to see that movie even though I haven’t read the books. It looks good. And The Look of Love looks good too.

  2. I hope you feel better quickly and I’m glad you had a good Thanksgiving. My daughter saw Mockingjay this week too. Your new titles are all new to me. I hope you enjoy your reading this week.

  3. Hope you feel better quickly!! I do like Sarah Jio’s writing, hope The Look of Love is a good one. Kept up with your photos on FB, looks like you had a lovely Thanksgiving and time with your boys. Happy reading 🙂

  4. I have come to enjoy Sarah Jio’s books so no doubt will read this most recent one at some point. Get well soon.

  5. I read The Look of Love last week – it was my first Sarah Jio book and I loved it!!! Will certainly be going back and reading her back list! Hope you enjoy it and that you are feeling better!!!

  6. I am in the home stretch of # dickensindecember…last 25%! I have alternated between loving and hating Pickwick Papers. I still have that ARC to read, then I get set for my home stretch of 200 for the year with Outlander and a bunch of Christmas freebies from all over the genres: Victorian to Spiritual.

    And setting my challenges (3 at present) for reading in 2015 with 2 from BookVixen, 1 from Traveling Penguin, and, in conjunction with one of the BookVixen’s, have set 225 books for 2015 ( why not “outdo myself”).

    Aaaaand, I finally activated Google+ so I could post on some of my regular blogs instead of off feed. All while watching my spouse hit her “end of semester stride” finishing her paper on Compassion Fatigue for trama studies.

  7. Moving the Needle looks like a good book for me right now. I hope you are feeling better soon!

  8. So sorry to hear you’ve been sick, Sheila. There’s some nasty stuff going around. My husband’s been sick almost a week now, and our college son came home last week with mono, so I understand! Hope your books are a comfort to you until you feel better.

    Enjoy reading this week!


    Book By Book

  9. Sorry you’ve been sick. Hope you feel better. I’d like to read Look of Love, I hear Sarah Jio’s style is like my favorite author Diane Chamberlain. I’ve read Morning Glory but would like to try this one too. Thanks for hosting.

  10. Sorry to hear you’re sick. Hope you feel much better soon.

    I finished up several books over the weekend so I can now focus on one. I’m taking a break from audiobooks to listen to the Serial podcast. It seems like everyone I know is talking about it.

  11. Finding Jake sounds very interesting and frightening!

    It seems to be the season for sickness – we have sniffles here and I know a lot of people are under the weather! I hope you feel better soon.

  12. All those books are new to me, I will be checking out your reviews 🙂

    Thanks for stopping by my Ticker review yesterday, I hope my review helped and I hope that you have a good time reading Penny’s adventure!

    I’m following you via bloglovin & WP, I comment back so rest assured we can feed each other that way 🙂

Hmmmm... what do you think?
