It's Monday, What Are You Reading?


It's Monday, What Are You Reading? is a weekly meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journey, that is guaranteed to add to your reading list. 


Read Last Week:

  

The Slap by Christos Tsiolkas: This book was grim and sad, but I enjoyed reading it. Review Wednesday.

Survival Lessons by Alice Hoffman: A total departure from her norm; this book is nonfiction, and was written when she had cancer. Review Tuesday.

Let It Snow by John Green, Lauren Johnson, and Lauren Myracle: This was a happy, clever book of short stories that allowed some lightness on my reading week. I really enjoyed every story in the book.  Review Thursday. (maybe)

Reading This Week:

   

The French House by Don Wallace: I received this from NetGalley. I love any French memoir out there usually, so I am excited to dig in. 

The Radleys by Matt Haig: I saw on Estella's Revenge last week, and was reminded I wanted to read it. Then when Andi said that it was only $1.99 on Amazon for the Kindle version, I knew I had to snatch it up!

  3. I haven't read any of these, but some of the covers look enticing. The French House has a great cover.

  4. The Slap is a book I considered reading but heard quite mixed thoughts about so I look forward to reading your review.
    Happy Reading!

    1. I liked it, but it was not an easy read; it was not a happy book.

  5. I get sucked in on a lot of the $1.99 Kindle deals too. My Kindle would bulge if Kindles could. Come see my Monday Report if you get a chance. Happy reading!

  7. The only thing keeping me from LOVING The Radleys is the fact that I've been reading it forever! I read it in short chunks while my son is going to sleep, and nowadays, I tend to fall asleep with him rather than after him. lol

  8. I'll have to check out your coney island post. I've never had either, but I think one of the food networks did a show on the rivalry a few years ago...

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.
