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. 

Read Last Week:

Dark Places by Gillian Flynn:   I love this author's books, and I had to read them all!  

Thornyhold by Mary Stewart:   Sometimes I just need to read a Gothic Romance.

Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn:  Ditto what I said about Dark Places.  (my reviews for these coming up soon)

Explosive Eighteen by Janet Evanovich:  Very disappointing.        

 Reading This Week:

Say Nice Things About Detroit by Scott Lasser:  Being from Detroit, I really look forward to reading this.  

Wild by Cheryl Strayed:  I was trying to wait for this to come in from the library, but I couldn't! I kept seeing it everywhere, and when I saw it here, I knew I needed to buy it.  

Never Knowing by Chevy Stevens:  A recommendation from a friend, a perfect follow up to Gillian Flynn, I think.  


  1. I'm curious about Say Nice Things About Detroit as well as Wild. Let me know about them. Have you read "Same Kind of Different As Me?" I just started it and it, so far, is great.

    1. I haven't! I will have to check it out! When I am finished with Wild you can borrow it. I have heard great things about it, so I am expecting it to be really good. I will let you know how they both are. :)

  2. If you're done with it by the 19th, I'll borrow it at book club :) Same Kind of Different is a true story. It had good reviews too.

  3. I hope you didn't buy Never Knowing. I would have given you mine!

  4. Aww thanks! I actually did get that at the library, I was excited that it was in!! Thanks though!

  5. I have been curious about Wild as well. I look forward to reading your thoughts on it. Happy Reading!

  6. I have to keep reading Gillian Flynn too. Can't wait for your reviews.

  7. I wasn't a fan of Gone Girl but definitely want to try her debut. I also would have said to try Chevy Stevens but her debut, I haven't read the other.

  8. Wild sounds like it could be really cool! Plus, a girl-power kind of book to motivate me :-)

  9. I've read Thornyhold a few times and I remember loving it. I should re-read it sometime. Enjoy your week!

  10. I love the cover for Dark Places, and Wild is one I want to read as well.

  11. I'm trying to hold out for Wild from the library, but I completely understand your need to read it right this minute!

  12. Gillian Flynn is a new author to me and I will check her out.
    Thanks for dropping by and commenting about Pig Island.

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.
