It's Monday, What Are You Reading? ~ April 21st




It's Monday, What Are You Reading is a weekly meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journey.

Read Last Week:

   
  




Yoga Bitch by Suzanne Morrison: I absolutely loved this book!! Review will be up Wednesday.

The Night is Watching by Heather Graham: This book was fun and escapist, which is good, because those are the exact reasons I pick this series up, hoping that they are. 

The Homemade Pantry by Alana Chernila: I thought this book was interesting. There are a few recipes I want to try, and in fact, I am going to try one out tomorrow. I will keep you posted!

Canning for a New Generation by Lianna Krissoff: I picked this up from the library, read through it, and knew that I needed it, so I immediately bought it for my iPad. 

Drinking and Tweeting and Other Brandi Blunders by Brandi Glanville: Guilty Pleasure Number One: I am addicted to the Real Housewives franchise. And Brandi is one of my faves. So I indulged in her book this weekend. 


Reading This Week:

  

  

Defending Jacob by William Landay: This is our book club pick for the month. I am looking forward to reading it, the premise sounds kind of like The Mourning Hours, which I loved!

Deep Dish by Mary Kay Andrews: As soon as the springtime weather kicks in, I always turn to an Andrews book. 

Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare: Team Jem!

The Apple Orchard by Susan Wiggs: Because apples are the most perfect fruit.

    1. I am going to write a little review on it, after I make a few things. Tonight, I am making creme fraiche. I love cucumbers with a little vinegar on them dipped into it.

  5. Homemade Pantry sounds good. A while ago I was looking for recipes to make pantry stuff from scratch and I didn't find many. This sounds good. Good luck with the recipes!

    I read Defending Jacob and enjoyed it, but maybe not quite as much as some people.

    Have a good week!

  8. This week's books look good! Can you forward me a link to your 'Yoga Bitch review' on Wednesday, I'm terrible at following up on these things but there's always room in my life for "awesome" books! :-)

  9. I will be looking for your review of Yoga Bitch. It sounds like a fun read! I just started canning a couple of years ago and am planning on doing more this year so I am going to look into the book you featured for new ideas. Thanks for sharing! Have a great week.
    Happy Reading,

    1. It made me laugh until I cried!I find myself canning more and more every year. And it is nice, my husband helps me so it is something we do together. :)

  10. Nice selection of books! I read Defending Jacob and the story was engaging, but I did not find any of the characters likeable. I own Homemade Pantry and really should try out a few recipes from it. And the canning book looks really interesting- that's on my bucket list.

  11. I've never watched any of the Real Housewives shows, but Drinking and Tweeting sounds like a bad idea ;) The book sounds funny though!

    1. Yeah, Brandi is a mess! And I totally think drinking and tweeting is the new drunk dial. ;)

  13. Deep Dish is my least favorite MKA book for some reason. I probably just wasn't in the mood for it when I read it or something. I hope you have better luck! Enjoy your week and good luck with your recipe!

    1. I liked it. It isn't my favorite, but I liked it. :) The main character love interest guy has an English Setter, just like me! So of course I had to like him for that. Lol. And I love Top Chef, and the book plot is sort of Top Chef-ish. :)

  14. Just finished Knots and Crosses. I am reading Haunted Ground now. Good book.

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.
