Its Monday! What Are You Reading?

A weekly event hosted by Sheila from One Persons Journey Through a World Of Books to discuss your reading week ~ the books you've read and those you plan on reading in the coming week. Thanks Sheila :-)

I had a really good week on the reading side of things, I haven't read 3 books in a week in such a long time and I did 2 reviews so I feel very virtuous LOL. Only problem with reading 3 books is, my review backlog will quickly get even scarier, and considering I'm already behind, that is indeed a frightening prospect. Crossing my fingers and sending up a prayer for focus and motivation & maybe a scrapping day with Alaine. On Wednesday please come back for an interesting guest post by Christine Lemmon, the author of Sand In My Eyes which I really enjoyed and reviewed last week.

  2. It is nice when you have a week where all the books you read are really good...

    You also remind me that I have SAVING MAX by Antoinette van Heugten - I need to get to it.. good to know it's a great read ..

    Happy reading week hon


  3. I am very curious as to how you are going to like Eat, Pray, Love. Look forward to your thoughts on that one.
    This was one book that I could not complete, although, I am told many times to pick the book back up and finish it. Shall see.

  4. What a great list of books! The Sky is Everywhere is on my TBR list - I'll definitely have to move it up. I'm reading Linger this week! I can't wait to read your review! I really need to read Carrie Jones! Can't wait to hear what you think.

  5. I am looking forward to your review of SAVING MAX!Have a gr8 week ahead!

  6. I'm reading Shadow Kiss at the moment and love it. Hope to read your reviews on the other two. I stopped reading Alyson Noel at Bluemoon as I think it becomes awkward.I'll read the rest but not that soon.Hope you will have great week Sheree!

  7. I like the look of Roeing Oaks.

    Have a great reading (and reviewing) week!

  8. I have Saving Max and I really want to read Linger. I have a few posts to write this week.... I hate getting behind on the m but it can all be such a juggle sometimes.... read, review.... (read usually wins!)

    Have a super week :D

  9. Ooooo Linger review coming up, I can't wait

  10. I meant to ask you about Linger today and I completely forgot! Another great line up of books for this week, I'm sure you'll enjoy Eat, Pray, Love and The Lies We Told. Thanks for doing my link, I completely forgot about it.

  11. I just could not like Eat Pray Love so would like to see what you think of it.

  12. I am always behind on my reviews! It gets worse if I participate in a readathon. It is great that you were able to read more this week.

    I will have to check out your review of Sand in My Eyes. I haven't read it. I did like The Sky is Everywhere. Glad to see that you liked Linger. I can't wait to read that one but I am trying to put off buying it for awhile.

    I hope you have a wonderful week. Enjoy your reading :)

  13. After I read Eat, Love, Pray I wanted to run away from home!

  14. You've won you with the "Oh My Blog" award! Come by and collect it at It's Time to Read! Congratulations!

  15. I have never read a Nora Roberts book-but I see them everywhere-I am going to have to get one. Happy Reading.

  16. I'm SO thrilled to see that you're reading Eat Pray Love! I just read a review on it few hours back and it kinda intrigue me. It would certainly be lovely to hear your thoughts on that particular book! And by the way, your review on The Sky is Everywhere is COMPLETELY fabulous. I love it!

  17. I read LINGER this week too. Glad you got so much done!
