It's Monday! What Are You Reading?


Good Monday morning! Thanks for stopping by. I got a lot of reading and reviewing accomplished last week. Yay!

I wrote up my review of Scent of the Missing: Love and Partnership with a Search and Rescue Dog by Susannnah Charlson. If you love dogs, you definitely have to check this one out! I also read and reviewed Are You There, Vodka? It's Me Chelsea by Chelsea Handler. This one is very funny if you're not easily offended! Finally, I read and reviewed two books in a children's series called Alby and the Cat by Leanne Davidson. I love these books because one of the main characters is a guide dog, so the kids learn about how guide dogs work and what it's like to be blind. I'm hosting a giveaway of the Alby and the Cat books at Just Playin' Around.

Currently Reading
I'm finishing up Gerry Tales by Gerry Boylan, and will be publishing my review this week. I'm also starting to read Audience, Relevance, and Search by James Mathewson, Frank Donatone and Cynthia Fishel.

Up Next
I'm going on one last summer vacation later this week, and I have two library books to take along with me. The first is The Stepford Wives by Ira Levin, which I'm reading for the Birth Year Challenge. The second book is Letter to My Daughter by Maya Angelou, which I'm reading for the Support Your Local Authors Challenge.

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.

  3. One of my favorite books is I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings, but I've never read anything else by Maya Angelou. I've heard she considers her "daughter" Oprah!

    Have a great reading week.

  5. Chelsea Handler's books are hilarious! If you like her's then you should check out Kathy Griffin's autobiography as well, it's very good. Have a great week!
