It's Monday! What Are You Reading?


Good morning. I hope you had a good week. It's been quiet here at My Book Retreat again. I have some reviews I need to write but I just haven't had a chance. I spent a lot of time reading this past week instead of writing.

I read Island Girl by Lynda Simmons this past week. It was wonderful. I am scheduled to participate in the book tour on Wednesday, so you'll see my review then.

I also still need to write up the review of Dead Barchetta by Kathryn Lively, which I read the week before.

I didn't do my weekly What My Children Are Reading post because my kids seem to be in a rut. My son is reading through all the Magic Tree House books (I think he's on #22 now) and my daughter has been reading a lot of the same books we've mentioned before. Maybe we'll have something to talk about on Saturday.

Last week was the beginning of summer, which marked the end of the Spring Reading Thing challenge. So I put up my recap of that challenge.

Currently Reading
I'm now reading Counting from Zero by Alan B. Johnston.

Up Next
Next, I'm going to read Two Kisses for Maddy: A Memoir of Loss & Love by Matt Logelin.

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.

  2. Two Kisses for Maddy has some strong points and a glaring problem, at least for some people.

    Enjoy your books

  3. The story of Matt, Liz and Maddy is both heartbreaking and inspiring. Matt's love for his daughter speaks to me as a man who adores his own children. And as a guy who hates how Dad's are portrayed in the main stream media, Matt has become something of a hero to me. And his desire to help others in his position just makes him that much more so heroic. He's a good man and a good dad. I wish him and Maddy every happiness. Lord knows there has been enough sadness to last a lifetime.
