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.

I missed last week, I was on vacation "up north" as Michiganders say. And I didn't eve read much!

Read Last Week:

Summer Rental by Mary Kay Andrews:  I started this book on vacation at my family's summer rental.  My room was a bug jar with the light on, so I couldn't fit much reading in at night! I enjoyed this book, it was a fun summer read.

Honolulu by Alan Bernnert:  This author has never let me down, I have found both his books to be beautiful and moving.  I recommend them to everyone.

Heart of Evil by Heather Graham:  Second in the Krewe of Hunters Series.  I enjoyed this second book much better than the first.  And I was in love with the ghost story!

Currently Reading:

The Kitchen House by Katheleen Grissom:  I have read favorable reviews of this book and so far so good!

The Red Garden by Alice Hoffman:  Alice Hoffman is always a favorite of mine, and this books seems no exception. So far I have cried, and laughed, because my one of my favorite historical figures, Johnny Appleseed is a character! And I am not even that far into the book yet, so I wonder what other surprises are in store.

Gave up on for the moment:

Paris to the Moon by Adam Gopnik:  This is not a bad book, I was just not in the mood.  I plan on revisiting Gopnik's Paris this fall or winter.


  1. I loved Paris to the Moon, but, then again, I love anything about Paris!

    Here's my It's Monday! What are You Reading? for this week:
    It's Monday! What Are You Reading? and Readerbuzz's August Giveaway!

    I hope you will stop by and join in Readerbuzz's August Giveaway!

  2. Summer Rental looks like a fun read. I like her books.

  3. Oh, I want to read Heart of Evil by Heather Graham! It looks so awesome... I love ghost stories...

    My Monday!

  4. I want to get my hands on Summer Rental!

  5. I really must put more thought in to reading Alice Hoffman. I've seen her pop up everywhere.

  6. The Krewe of Hunters series sounds awesome. That's one I need to get started on :-)

  7. Have a great week, may you get through all the books this week :D

  8. Some of Alice Hoffman's books bore me to tears, and yet most of them are so interesting, that I tend to read them straight through if I have a chance. I like the way she infuses magical tendrils into a lot of her stories.

  9. Will have to check out Alan Brennert's books since you're giving them such a good rap.
    Have a great week and happy reading :)


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.
