It’s Monday, 5 August – What Are You Reading?

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

So I took a little summer vacation at the site. I hope you having all been doing well and having good reading weeks. This week I am reading and planning to finish J. Courtney Sullivan’s The Engagements. I’m more than halfway through and I’m finding the style and the stories interesting and at times, very enjoyable. I have a line-up of other books to read – some beachy reads and some review books. I’m not sure what I will dive into first.

It is already August, can you believe it?! How are you doing on your summer reading goals? I could be doing better, but it’s the summer, and I have been enjoy it.

Here are my last few weeks in review:

It’s Monday, 15 July – What Are You Reading

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

Not too bad a week over here. I finished up Daphne Kalotay’s Sight Reading (which I received for review) and got up a new review. I am still quite behind on my reading for the year so I really need to pick up my pace. Well now that I mention it, I am also behind on reviews, but there will be more coming your way soon.

This week ahead I will continue reading The Storyteller by Jodi Picoult, it has started to pick up to the point where I want to keep reading to the next chapter instead of going to bed. I will also start & Sons by David Gilbert  (which I got from Library Thing’s Early Reviewers).

It’s Monday, 8 July – What Are You Reading?

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

Well as I suspected, during the holiday week I took a little holiday from posting and reading. Here on the East Coast it has been very hot, in fact a little too hot for me to sit by the pool (but not too hot for a 6 mile run Saturday morning – marathon training starts soon). So, no new reviews and no books finished this week. But, I have made good progress on Daphne Kalotay’s Sight Reading (which I received for review) and so far I am really enjoying it – of course a book with music, that has a lot of the story based in Boston and I’m in! I am also working on  The Storyteller by Jodi Picoult, it’s my Kindle read of the week. I will continue with both of these this week and expect to finish one, if not both.

How about you? Did you get a lot of reading done over the holiday weekend, or were you out and about enjoying time with family and friends? What do you plan on reading this week?

It’s Monday, 1 July – 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

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
