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.

I apologize for not getting around to everyone's blogs two weeks ago who commented on mine. My week went nuts!

I am a bit behind on my blogging! My husband and I went on a quick trip to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, and had a blast! It was so relaxing and beautiful.  

Read Last Two Weeks:

    


Conversion by Katherine Howe: It finally came in! Woohoo! I loved it. 

Nantucket Red by Leila Howland: This was a fun easy read on vacation.

The Hurricane Sisters by Dorothea Benton Frank: I love Frank, and her books signify summer to me.

Reading This Week:

  


Bittersweet by Miranda Beverly-Whittemore: I read about this somewhere and thought it looked good.


Mastering the Art of French Eating by Ann Mah: Reading for July in Paris. 

Speaking of, who watched the Tour de France? Omg, I was a little addict! I watched all of them, except for the stages when I was on vacation. I plan on doing a quick post about it for Paris in July.

I also plan on catching up on my reviews this week!

  1. So sorry about your car! Too bad because it is so pointless too. Hope this week is a better one.
    On the bookfront you have some great reads. I want to read Conversion soon, and your beach-reads look like a fun time also.
    Enjoy the week.

    1. Thanks Rita. I completely agree.

      I really loved Conversion! I am a fan of any book that is even remotely about the Salem witch trials though. What a horrible time in our country's history.

    2. My family stopped at Salem, MA for a few hours when driving through the state a few years ago. Saw some fun places but unfortunately camera wasn't working so no photos to show for it :(
      My sis-in-law and niece took a tour bus with some friends to the area on Halloween once and they toured graveyards at night, a midnight walking tour, etc. She said it was lots of fun!

    3. I visited Salem when I was a kid, and I don't remember it very well. I think I need to visit again!

  2. I love the Tour de France and I watch it for the scenery more than anything else! Your books look good.

    1. The scenery is amazing!! This year I think the sunflower fields were my favorite landscape they rode through. I hope the riders get to see some of it!

  3. A trip to the UP, ooh I'll have to read that! Haven't been up there in a while. The Fever and MAstering the Art both look good!

  9. I'm really hoping to fit Bittersweet in this summer - it sounds like a book I'd love. Can't wait to hear what you think! Mastering the Art of French Eating is on my wish list, too. Have a good week!

  10. I don't know much about these books but they look good, especially the one about France. I just spent two weeks in France and can't get over how much I loved everything I ate - and didn't even gain weight! I just treated myself to a French cookbook recommended by a friend called The Bonne Femme. Have a great week!

    1. I am so jealous!!! I would probably eat the whole time but gain a metric ton! Lol. The Bonne Femme sounds awesome!

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.
