It's Monday! What Are You Reading?


Good Monday morning to you. Well, my vacation is over and it's back to work today. Bummer. I got a lot of reading done last week, but not much blogging! I didn't even publish my What My Children Are Reading post this weekend. I think that's the first time in months that I skipped it. That's what happens when you don't have Internet access while on vacation. It's hard to write blog posts on a BlackBerry!

I completed The Last Christian by David Gregory. You can click on the title and get to my review. I'm hosting a giveaway for this one as well, and I really loved it, so be sure to check it out and enter the giveaway!

I also completed Skinny is Overrated by Danielle Milano, MD, but I haven't written the review yet. You'll have to wait until later this week for that one.

Upcoming Reviews
The Post-War Dream by Mitch Cullin
Skinny is Overrated by Danielle Milano, MD

Currently Reading
Not My Daughter by Barbara Delinsky (June book club selection)

I haven't decided what I'm going to read next. I have a couple more books to read for the Spring Reading Thing Challenge and a couple more books to review. So we'll see what I get to next. 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.

  6. I listened to Not My Daughter a few months ago and just remembered I didn't post a review!

    Can't wait to read your review - will you be discussing the book with the author? We discussed a book with her a few years ago - she's amazing. Her process for writing is unlike anything I have heard (in a good way).

    Have a wonderful week, Mari

Banned Books Week: Junie B. Jones by Barbara Park

This is the end of Banned Books Week and unfortunately, I haven't had a lot of time to write about banned books this year. But I did want to include at least one post about it, so today I wanted to share one of the book series that it seems most people are surprised to find on the list: Junie B. Jones by Barbara Park.

According to Wikipedia:
The Junie B. Jones series came in at #71 on the American Library Association's list of the Top 100 Banned or Challenged Books from 2000-2009. Reasons cited are poor social values taught by the books and Junie B. Jones not being considered a good role model due to her mouthiness and bad spelling/grammar. This is an interesting example of a banned book. Many times there are serious, controversial topics featured in books that are challenged. Things like homosexuality, drugs, vulgar language, etc. You can actually understand why people may not want their children to read those books, and why they may challenge their inclusion in school libra…

Book Review: No Story to Tell by KJ Steele

Victoria has been put down since the day she was born. First by her parents who were disappointed that she survived while her twin brother died. Then by her verbally abusive husband and his low-life friends. But soon an intriguing artist named Elliott arrives in town and starts encouraging Victoria to follow her dream of opening her own dance studio. She also begins to receive phone calls from a mysterious someone who gets her to open up about her past and face her true feelings.

In No Story to Tell, KJ Steele has captured the small-town atmosphere and brought these characters to life. From the victimized Victoria, to her drunk and obnoxious husband Bobby and his drunk and obnoxious friends, to all the side characters who you'd expect to encounter in a town like this ~ all are so realistic in both their actions and their voices. She has written a compelling story of an abused woman who thinks she is trapped in this loveless, miserable existence. But then she finds a spark of hope…

Zoe is a typical working mother who takes the Underground through London to her office every day. Like most commuters, she has a routine that she follows every day, leaving home at the same time, sitting in the same train car, taking the same route to work from the station. It's habit. But she starts to realize this may not be a good idea after seeing her own photo in an advertisement in the newspaper. Another woman who appears in the advertisement is murdered and Zoe starts to ge…
