It's Monday, What Are You Reading? ~ June 17


It's Monday, What Are You Reading is a weekly meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journey where we share what we have read and what we are reading and see what everyone else is reading.

It's summer!! Schoooooooooollllll's out for summer! Yay! More reading time, more gardening time, more canning time, more walks with my dog and time with my family and friends.  

Read Last Week:

  

The Yonahlossee Riding Camp for Girls by Anton Disclafani: This book was crazy good. Although it left me feeling battered and broken a little inside, it is still one of the best books I have read all year. 

NOS4A2 by Joe Hill: This book was also amazing. I ran the gamut of emotions, and am blown away by Hill's prowess. 

Reading this Week:


  


The World's Strongest Librarian by Josh Hanagarne:  I have heard such great things about this book! And starting tomorrow, you have a chance to win it!!  Just visit my blog tomorrow for details.

And the Mountains Echoed by Khaled Hosseini: Because Hosseini writes heartbreaking but good books. 


Please pop back by tomorrow (Tuesday) for a chance to win a copy of The World's Strongest Librarian!

    1. Lol, I totally get it! YRCFG was amazing! Belle described it to me a little like a Goolrick, and after I read it, the description made perfect sense. If you haven't read it by the time I get it back from my friend, I will mail it to you. Lol.
