It’s Monday, 1 July – What Are You Reading?

TheIt’s time for Book Journey’s fabulous weekly posting “It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?”

Summer is in full swing – it’s already July! Lazy days of summer it is not here, between work, my projects, running and prepping for my first marathon and of course reading and blogging. I like staying active, but I do enjoy a few hours at the pool with a beach read.

This past week I finished up two books – Dead Ever After by Charlaine Harris, the final in the Sookie series, and not a moment too soon, I used to find those books fun, but I really lost interest and will not miss the series now that it’s gone. The second book was The Snow Child by Eowyn Ivey. I will post a full review in the near future, but I must say that it is my favorite book to date this year.

With the holiday, I am not sure if I will get a lot of reading done, or if I will not read all that much, spending time being out and about enjoying the summer. When I do read, on the docket is Daphne Kalotay’s Sight Reading and The Storyteller by Jodi Picoult

Here’s my last week in review:

How about you? How was your week last week and what are you going to be reading this week? Do you have summer beach reading plans?

As an aside, summertime is the time for beaches, pools, fireflies and ice cream – so here is a photo of my Morkie Sonny with his ice cream cone. Happy July 4th!Sonny cone

  1. Timing is everything with a series, I think. One can drag a storyline on too long.

    Here’s my It’s Monday!

  3. I read and enjoyed The Snow Child, and my daughter said you can’t go wrong with a Sookie book. Have a good week reading!

  4. Nice week, my choices haven’t met my expectation. I want to read Snow Child, have heard great things.
