What Are You Reading On Monday?




A weekly event hosted by J. Kaye’s Book Blog to discuss your reading week ~ the books you've read and those you plan on reading in the coming week.

I didn't get much reading done last week as I was getting organised for holidays and catching up on book reviews lol and this week we are away for an annual week long soccer tournament that my 15 year old soccer-mad son plays in. The good thing about not getting much  reading done is, I'm almost caught up on reviews (almost) WOOHOO! I probably won't get to do much blog visiting this week but I have a review  and a few other things scheduled and I promise to catch up when I get back from a week of sun, surf, & soccer.

Click on the titles to see my reviews for:

DARK HEART by Betsy James - 4 stars

GARDEN SPELLS by Sarah Addison Allen - 4.5 stars

THE HELP by Kathryn Stockett - 5 stars

Books Completed Last Week:

WAIT UNTIL TWILIGHT by Sang Pak

  13. I loved "The Help," and your review took me back, until I felt as if I was in the middle of it again.

    I don't usually enjoy audio books, but this might be an exception. Hearing the dialect and story from three narrators would probably totally captivate me!

    My "What Are You Reading" post is over at http://laurel-rain-snow.blogspot.com

  19. I really want to read The Help, but I think I'm going to wait until I get through some other books currently collecting dust on my shelf. Must be patient!

  21. J.Kaye ~ I did finish Wait Until Twilight and I didnt enjoy it much overall. I thought the ending was pretty good but but I see what you mean about it being anticlimactic! I liked the fact that the 'evil one' got what he deserved but don't you think it was weird that nothing was mentioned about it?
    Too many completely unrelated and non relevant things in the book!

  22. Garden Spells is on my wishlist so I'm glad to see that you enjoyed it! I'm exited to find out if you like Shiver, it's in my TBR pile.

    I have an award for you
