It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

A weekly event hosted by Sheila from Book Journey to discuss your reading week ~ the books you've read and those you plan on reading in the coming week. I love this meme ... thanks Sheila :)

A crazy busy week with lots of time spent in the car - 5 hour round trip visiting a dear old friend in a nursing home and then on Sunday we picked my Dad up from the airport after a 3 month holiday spent in Europe and US.  I had a great reading week finishing 3 books and making good progress on 2 more, I must admit it's nice listening to audiobooks again!

  2. The Next Always by Nora Roberts is a book I have on my wish-list Sheree as I quite liked the first book in the series and am keen to see what happens with the remaining brothers.

    Debbie Macomber is an author whose name I come across frequently and will have to read some of her work so I'm interested in what your thoughts are.

    Happy reading......or listening!

  3. I hope you will have a fun reading week :)

  4. A lot of good reading for you! I'm trying to get through my tbr pile, hah! It's never going to happen, is it?

    1. hahaha yep you're dreaming ... our TBR piles are an evergrowing monster ;)

  5. Wow, there are a lot of books in your reading list this week! And it sounds like your last week went well. I'm hoping to get out of my rut and finish a couple of books this week myself.

    Thanks for the visit over at my blog, by the way!

  6. You had a great reading week. Everyone seems to love PUSHING THE LIMITS, so I hope you do too! I can't wait to read it for myself too. :) Enjoy!

  7. The books you have coming up look good!! And congrats to your winner!!!!!!

  8. How are you liking The Next Always? I've read that one and the next one, The Last Boyfriend and enjoyed both.

    I am patiently awaiting the release of The Inn at Rose Harbor - I am on the list at the library. Did you read the prequel - When First They Met - it's a short story that sets everything up. I'm planning on reading that this week.

    Have a great week and thanks for stopping by my blog.

    1. I'm enjoying The Next Always Kristin but not sure I'd listen to the next one on audio if it was the same narrator, will read it :)

  9. This is the second time I've seen the Find Color of Rust mentioned in 24 hours. hmmmmm. I also am loving the cover of animal attraction - it's not the muscle guy - it's the kitten in his arms. ;) cute picture.
