It's NOT Monday! But What Are You Reading?

Well, it's not Monday anymore. For the first time in months, I didn't publish my weekly update on Monday. Oh well. Life has been getting in the way of reading and blogging lately, and in my opinion, that's just fine. We had a wonderful long weekend that we spent with good friends and family we haven't seen in a while. We went to the pool. We went to see fireworks. We had a cookout complete with water balloon fights and croquet. And now it's Tuesday, and I'm finally ready to tell you what I'm reading!

Last night, I finally finished The Girls: A Novel by Lori Lansens. This is my book club's July selection. I'll be writing my review soon, but I have to say that I absolutely loved this book. I highly recommend it. I also managed to publish What My Children Are Reading on Saturday.

For those of you participating in my Summer Reading Challenge, there's now a post where you can link up to the reviews you write for the books you've read. You can find that here.

Currently Reading
Finding Marco by Kenneth Cancellara ~ I'll have two copies for giveaways so check back in the next few days!

Up Next
I am heading to the beach on Saturday, so I'm not sure what I'm going to bring along. If I get The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest by Stieg Larsson from my friend, I'll take that with me. Otherwise, I may move on to City of Dreams by William Martin, which I have for review. Or I may go with a couple paperbacks that would work better for the beach: The Middle Place by Kelly Corrigan and Snow Flower and the Secret Fan by Lisa See. Maybe I'll throw them all in the luggage! I also have the audio version of A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L'Engle, which I plan to listen to on the ride to and from the beach.

What are you reading this week? This meme is being hosted by Sheila at Book Journey, so hop over there if you'd like to see what others are reading too.


  1. These two were two of my fave reads for 2009:

    The Middle Place, Kelly Corrigan Snow Flower and the Secret Fan, Lisa See

    But I wouldn't call either of them "beach reads" based on content and intensity. HTH!

  2. No worries - I've done my Monday post on Tuesday before, too!

    I'm just coming off a long hiatus from blogging - we were on a 3-week road trip to New Mexico and just got home this weekend.

    I've been dying to read The Middle Place - I love memoirs.



Thanks for stopping by! I'd love to hear your thoughts!
