It's Monday! What Are You Reading?



Good morning. I hope you've had a great week. We spent the past few days in Myrtle Beach, SC, relaxing, so that was a nice ending to the week!

I had a slow reading week ~ you don't get to read much at the pool and beach when you have little kids to watch! I did finish reading Sabbath: Finding Rest, Renewal, and Delight in Our Busy Lives by Wayne Muller. That's my August book club selection so we'll be discussing it at the end of the month. I'm hoping to get my review up this week, but time is tight so not sure it will happen.

I did manage to put up a review of Listen by Rene Gutteridge. Unfortunately, I didn't enjoy it as much as some of you probably did. I just wasn't crazy about the characters. You can click on the title and read my review.

I also put up my July Month in Review.

Currently Reading
I'm still reading The Keeper of Lost Causes by Jussi Adler-Olsen. It's very good, but I just haven't had a lot of reading time lately!

Up Next
I'll be reading What Language Is by John McWhorter next, as that's my next book tour. I also plan to review Murder in the 11th House by Mitchell Scott Lewis this week, and as I said above, hopefully I'll review Sabbath as well.

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. Reading by the pool sounds lovely but I agree not a lot of reading getting done with 'mommy watch this' over and over, lol
