It's Monday, What Are You Reading?




It's Monday, What Are You Reading is a weekly blog meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journey where you list the books you read last week and the ones you hope to read this week. 


This past week was a doozy.  I was sick, two days off work kind of sick, and then Thursday night, my husband was in a scary car accident.  He is doing good, and did not sustain any injuries from the accident, thank god. Things could have been much worse, so we feel lucky.  

Read Last Week:

    

River Road by Suzanne Johnson: This was an entertaining break from reality. And I love New Orleans, even fictional New Orleans.

The Wisdom of the Shire by Noble Smith: I absolutely adored this book!!!

My reviews for both of these will be up this week sometime.

Reading this Week:

Not too different from last week, since my life went haywire and I didn't get to most of the books I wanted to read.  I am going to commit to these two, but there might be one or two more I read.



Jepp, Who Defied the Stars by Katherine Marsh: I need a book about defying one's stars right now.  

Charlotte and Emily by Jude Morgan: I think I am ready for the Brontes.

    I will have to check out The Wisdom of the Shire. I loved The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit. I've heard good things about Jepp, Who Defied the Stars too.

I love hearing from people, don't be shy! I would love to hear what you think! I always reply back, although it takes me a bit longer these days due to the little guy.
