Hello! Welcome to It’s Monday What Are You Reading? The meme that we use to share what we read this past week and what our plans are for the upcoming week. It’s a great way to see what others are reading and add to your own To Be Read list. 😀 You never know where that next great read may come from!
It has been a good week. A nice mix of work and fun. Here is what I posted about this week:
Girl On The Train by Paula Hawkins (not the review you are expecting)
My Father’s Wife by Mike Greenberg
Afterworlds by Scott Westerfeld
Girl Fight -why Amy (Gone Girl) kicks a** over Rachel (Girl On The Train)
This Is What You Just Put In Your Mouth by Patrick Di Justo
Great Gatsby Party in Roseville MN (soooo much fun!)
The Undiluted Truth About Review Requests, Accepting Or Not and all the decisions in between 🙂
It has been a good reading and audio week. Here is what is on tap for this week:
For My Ears
The number-one international best seller reminiscent of After I’m Gone, Sister, Before I Go to Sleep and The Silent Wife–an intricately plotted, thoroughly addictive thriller that introduces a major new voice in suspense fiction; a mesmerizing and powerful novel that will keep you guessing to the very end.
No one has ever guessed Emily’s secret.
A happy marriage. A beautiful family. A lovely home. So what makes Emily Coleman get up one morning and walk right out of her life, to start again as someone new?
Now Emily has become Cat, working at a hip advertising agency in London and living on the edge with her inseparable new friend, Angel. Cat’s buried any trace of her old self so well, no one knows how to find her. But she can’t bury the past or her own memories.
And soon she’ll have to face the truth of what she’s done–a shocking revelation that may push her one step too far…
The jury is out on books for this week… I need to look and see what that will be yet 🙂

Keen to hear what you think of One Step Too Far.
I just started it tonight…. another accented narrator… I keep running into them 😀
Your post on Gone Girl and The Girl on the Train was very interesting. I want to read both of them. Have a great week!
I hope you do read them both – they are worthy of your time 😉
Great posts this week! I liked your Girl On The Train reviews- I have that one and have seen a lot of hype, so it was nice to see a measured view too that says it’s not perfect. I’m curious to see waht I think when I get to it. 🙂 Nice to see photo of your trip too- have a fabulous week.
I like others opinions on books I have not enjoyed as much as others… I hope you do enjoy Girl On The Train! 🙂
Thanks for a different viewpoint on Girl on The Train, refreshing to have. I am undecided as to whether I’ll read it – a maybe at this stage.
Sure! I was a bit bummed as I wanted to rave about it 🙂
Sometimes it’s hard to decide what to read next. I’m sure you’ll come up with something good.
I think I was being lazy 😀 I have a book in mind, I think it was on my Monday post to read last week…. 😀
Loved your honesty on Hawkins Sheila, the “book of the moment” doesn’t always live up to its pre-publicity. I finshed “Cress” today, the third book by Marissa Meyers. So looking forward to the next in the series:” Fairest”. Also read an ARC of Sophie McKenzie’s “You Can Trust Me”, which will be release in May. It has been THE BEST book so far this year…a real SQUEEE…dark mystery….kept seeing Julianne Moore as the lead in my head.
Halfway through “Keep Dancing”, the second book in the Jack and Julia series. I loved Julia Wells’ first book in this series, but this one’s kinda “all fluff and no puff”.
Got a few Open Media Press vintage books, another chick lit, and a memoir that keeps floating around my queue…..a bunch of cosies….the second Paisley Ray Rachel O’Brian…and a serious historical fiction. With our forecast I may get most of them read before Valentine’s Day!
( Oh, and dealing with sticker shock on a brand new $2600 bed! We had to get a new one after all the “work”….and, I’m reshelving/ culling books)
I read Cinder and need to get the next book. LOL love the bed comment – eep! It will last a long time!
I wasn’t all that impressed with One Step Too Far. Confusing if you ask me. It gets good towards the end, but still not a favorite.
I reviewed it about a week or so ago.
Will be looking to see what you think.
ENJOY your reading week. I am sure you will find something good for an upcoming book. 🙂
I don’t think I’d like Girl on the Train. I know it is the “in” thing to have these dark books with unreliable narrators but I’m not really a fan. I am curious to see what you think of One Step Too Far. I saw that one being touted for fans of Gone Girl too.
I tried to add my link this week, as I normally do, but was asked to sign up for a free trial on Linky. I don’t want to do that, and didn’t see a way to opt out, so I am adding my link here instead. I’m disappointed at this turn of events.

I will be curious to see what you think of One Step Too Far in comparison to Girl on the Train. I read One Step Too Far and then Girl on the Train. Similar in a way, yet different. I was disappointed in both.
I would like to read any of your books. I especially want to read The Girl on The Train. I’ve never heard of The Great Gatsby Party. That one, I’ll bet, is fun. Have a good week.
I am still reading Outlander, week 2 now, but hopefully finish this week. I need to pick up one of these, One Step too Far sound very very very intriguing!
One Step Too Far sounds like a really good one.
I’ve been going back and forth on My Father’s Wives. Your review made me want to give it a chance. Thanks!
This is my first time participating.
hmm keen to see what you think of One Step Too Far, I only saw the movie of Gone Girl and I’m listening to The Girl on the Train now. I’m not blown away … not yet anyway. Have a great week and happy reading 🙂
One Step Too Far sounds pretty good. I’m having trouble choosing what to read this week, too.
I loved your Amy vs. Rachel post – now I need to check out your other Girl on the Train review! I’ll be interested to hear your thoughts on One Step Too Far…I’m staying away from psych thrillers right now (I keep comparing them all to GG and coming up disappointed), but may give it a shot later if people seem to like it.
Goodness you accomplished a lot this past week! Happy reading and listening this week!
One Step Too Far is on my tbr, I look forward to your thoughts on it. Happy reading 🙂 Lindsay
Hope you enjoy the audiobook, Sheila. Happy Birthday 🙂
You had a full week. I’m off to read your review of Afterworlds.
Wow, you posted a lot last week! One Step Too Far sounds very intriguing – I hadn’t heard about that one yet so thanks for the tip.
Enjoy your books this week –
Book By Book
I’m glad to read differing opinions about Girl on the Train. think one of the reasons I have hesitated starting it is because it’s being talked about everywhere and everyone seems to be praising it.
Also – Happy Birthday!!!
I work in a bookstore so I feel like it’s my job to read The Girl on the Train. I sell several copies an hour. That may end up moved to the top of my tbr pile. Happy reading!
I can’t wait to hear what you’ll think of One Step Too Far. I read it a while back and felt it was an OK read.
PS: Thanks for visiting my blog! 🙂
I’ve read One Step Too Far (review copy) and The Girl on the Train (from the library) but haven’t written a word of either review yet, so I’ll come back and read what you thought later!
PARROTS PROVED DEADLY By Clea Simons
One Step Too Far sounds interesting! I realized last night that I never did finish the audio of Fangirl (despite falling in love with the Simon and Baz story!) so I’m currently listening to that now. I am uncertain what to pick in print/ebook format – so many titles to choose from!
So far this year I have been mostly reading a few political thrillers and military fiction that I picked up late last year. I just finished reading Robert Cooks Pulse from the Cooch series and I thought it was outstanding. If you enjoy political fiction, this book is an absolute must-read and I strongly recommend checking out the others in the series too. Robert Cook is an author with a decorated military background and so writes with a degree of experience and authenticity that is tough to match. Really loved Pulse and highly recommend it to any fans of the genre or even just readers of action thrillers. Top stuff.
