It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

I got some reading done last week and I put up a couple of reviews here and added several to Amazon. So overall, it was a productive week here at My Book Retreat. I hope you had a good week too!

I wrote my review for Little Bee by Chris Cleave. I really liked the book, but I also worry the hype may ruin it for some.

I also read and reviewed Back to the Homeplace by William Leverne Smith last week. It was an easy read that kept my attention and brought back a lot of memories.

I finally finished the manuscript my friend asked me to review for her friend. I have to say it was very good (although full of typos at this point) and I really hope it's published so I can recommend it to all of you!

In honor of National Reading Group Month, I posted a few lists of top books for book clubs

Currently Reading
I've started Insignificant Moments by Jeremy Asher, which I'm enjoying so far.

Up Next
Next, I'm going to listen to On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft by Stephen King, and read either Everything Changes by Jonathan Tropper or The Kitchen House by Kathleen Grissom.

Be sure to check out my latest giveaway: Up to $15 from The Book Depository. The giveaway lasts until mid-day Wednesday, which is my actual blogiversary!

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. I started reading two books this week. "The Heavens Weep for us" by Thelma Reyna and "Devil Talk" by Daniel Olivas. These books are a collection of short stories.

    I have written something about one of the stories by Reyna on my blog.

  2. I am really interested in the Kitchen House and hope to read it soon.

    Have an awesome week Julie!

  3. On Writing is an excellent book. Last week was a nice mixture of research, picture books and reading for fun. Here's what I'm reading this week.

  4. Visiting from Lori's Linky.
    Stephen King was one of my fav authors and On Writing is a fascinating read


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