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! 

Well not much happened on my blog last week, I took an impromptu week off from blogging and gave myself permission to feel sad, eat comfort food, read and basically slack off but I did do a little blog visiting. So, new week ... I'm ready :)

Congrats to everyone who participated in the Dewey 24hr Read-a-thon, hope you had a ton of fun!

************

Finished last week:

THE SECRET KEEPER by Kate Morton ~ I was worried at first but what a great read

COMFORT AND JOY by Kristin Hannah (audiobook) ~ not as good as Magic Hour or Winter Gardens but still a magical read. 

RESCUE MY HEART by Jill Shalvis ~ {heart} these guys

  1. I want to read a Shalvis book soon! Glad The Secret Keeper turned out to be a good read. Look forward to what you thought about The Raven Boys as I just brought it home. I did not get much accomplished last week either.

    Happy reading!

  8. I have a friend who raves about Kate Morton but I haven't managed to read her yet. Obviously I should. :-) Still Alice is fantastic and I hope you enjoy it.

  10. I have The Secret Keeper on my list to read...loved The Forgotten Garden and have her other two books on my shelf just waiting to be read.

    I enjoyed Still Alice, but liked Left Neglected better. I'm currently listening to Love Anthony and am really enjoying it.

    Have a great week!

  18. The Kristin Hannah books sound like my cup of tea- I'm into dysfunctional families too, lol! You would love Jessica by Bryce Courtenay.

    Take care. :)
