It's Monday. What Are You Reading?

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading, is where we gather to share what we have read this past week and what we plan to read this week. It is a great way to network with other bloggers, see some wonderful blogs, and put new titles on your reading list.  Hosted by Sheila at Book Journey, this is my first time joining the book blogging community in this meme.

I am currently reading:

"A tale of redemption...holds readers in suspense until the final chapter...it will test readers' beliefs in the power of destiny and fate, and how they relate to choices one makes in life." - Chattanooga Free Press

"Possibly one of Spark's finest novels...Picture yourself reading it this week." - Examiner.com

"In true Nicholas Sparks fashion, the reader is engaged from the first to the last page.  The characters are authentic and the plot is engrossing and emotionally charged.  Sparks is a talented storyteller who is adept at tugging the reader's heartstrings." - BookLoons.com

Almost finished, my book review should be up tomorrow.  This is also part of a Nicholas Sparks reading challenge.

 "Wise, poignant...You'll catch yourself cheering out loud." - Vick Boughton, People.

"One of those magical books that will suck anybody in." - John Searles, The Today Show.

"Kathryn Stockett has written a wondrous novel.  You will be swept away as her characters work, play and love during a time when possibilities for women were few but their dreams of the future were limitless.  A glorious read."  - Adriana Trigiani, bestselling author of the Big Stone Gap series and Very Valentine.

Still reading this novel......

"Kinsella delights again!...Winning...Kinsella keeps things fresh and frothy with workplace politicking, romantic intrigue and a vibrant...cast...Readers will be rooting for Lexi all along." - Publishers Weekly

"A lively new novel...a breezy blend of romantic comedy and cautionary fairy tale...Kinsella is hilarious." - New York Post

"A delicious page-turner, filled with hearty chuckles and heartache...[Kinsella] finds a way to make losing one's memory seem refreshingly funny." - USA Today

I've really only just begun reading this novel. 

I don't know how other bloggers manage so many books at a time.  I am juggling three and still find myself devoting more time to one than another.  I love to read.  If only time would allow more of it.  Upcoming reads include The Chinese Conspiracy by John Mariotti and Deed So by Katharine A. Russell in addition to our book club read of the month for February Murder on the Orient Express by Agatha Christie.

What are you reading this week?


  1. Agatha Christie is indeed one of my all time favourite cozy mystery writers. Excellent choice of book from her collection. Have a great week reading. My Monday may be found here: http://www.rundpinne.com/2011/01/its-monday-what-are-you-reading-23.html

  2. Thanks for stopping my blog today! I agree with you.. I can read just one book at a time. Maybe two if they are unrelated (ie: non-fiction and a fiction title). I don't find much time during the week so I like to take advantage of audiobooks.

    Have a great week!

    ps: a new follower :)

  3. I am so glad to see you on this meme! I hope you enjoy it! :) I loved The Help - fantastic read! I also see you reviewed Fablehaven...off to peek at your thoughts! have a super week :)

  4. I really liked both The Help and Remember Me. Happy reading!

  5. Well, I've read about 8 books this year so far. *grin* More than usual for me at this stage. Thanks for commenting on my blog--"Greyfriars Bobby" is definitely a very awesome book to be put on a TBR list. By the way, I'm interested in "Agatha Christie"... never read one of those yet, but I'd like to someday.

  6. I'm with you. I generally can manage one nonfiction that I read at lunchtime and one novel to read at night. If I'm attempting more than that things just get confusing.
