Its 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:


A Reliable Wife by Robert Goolrick: This was my favorite this week.  I loved it, and now I want to read everything by this guy.

The White Glove War by Katie Crouch and Grady Hendrix:  A fun book about voodoo and debutantes in Savannah.

The White Forest by Adam McOmber: I thought this was beautifully written, but it didn't do much for me.  I thought it got a little weird and it made me feel a little depressed.  I know a lot of people liked it though, I just didn't connect with it.

Kept by Shawntelle Morgan:  A NetGalley book, I am almost finished!!   

Reading this week:

Another ambitious list for this week ~ I had my brother's wedding shower today, then Thursday is my husband's brother's rehearsal, and then his wedding is Saturday.  Its going to be a busy week, but I hope to carve out calm moments to read.



The Birthing House by Christopher Ransom:  I saw this on another book blog last week (I need to keep track of where!!) and it looked creepy! Of course this meant I have to read it.

Tiger Lily by Jodi Lynn Anderson:  Just because I have a thing for Peter Pan books.

The Teleportation Accident by Ned Beauman:  This book is on the longlist for the Man Booker Prize. One of my good friends intends to read all the books on the list, and has already read quite a few! I don't want to read all of them, but there are a few that caught my eye, including this one.  I am reading this for NetGalley.


  1. Kept looks so stinkin' awesome, doesn't it?? :) Hope you enjoy! I just got the first one, hoping to get started on it soon.

    Have a wonderful reading week! Whatcha readin' this week @ the Brunette Librarian :)

    1. I requested it from NetGalley and started reading it before I knew it was the second in the series!! I was feeling a bit lost at first but I am figuring stuff out. Lol! But it is good anyways. :)

  2. I'm impatiently waiting for A Reliable Wife to come in for me at my library ;) I can't wait to read it now! I tend to forget where I've heard of books or who inspired me to read a certain book. I need a chart or something! (This one though? I'll try very hard to remember it was YOU!) I'll look forward to hearing what you think about the Beauman, I'm always interested in the Man Booker list

    Have fun with all of your wedding fun this week!
    The Relentless Reader

    1. I am going to be so nervous worrying that you will hate it! Lol. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. I saw that you are going to read First They Killed My Father too!

      Thanks, it will be fun but I will definitely feel the need to hole up next week with lots of books!

  3. I have Tiger Lily on my tbr list. My little guy is obsessed with Peter Pan, so it's on my mind. Plus I love a really well done re-telling of a beloved story.
    Have a great week!

  4. The Teleportation Accident looks interesting. My favorite book this week was Ghouls Just Haunt to Have Fun by Victoria Laurie. Please come see what I'm reading now.

  5. I want to read Tiger Lily so bad, I've heard lots of great things about it!
    Here's what I'm reading

  6. Wow, you read a lot of books in one week! I am impressed.

    Glad you liked 11/22/61, too - I agree, it was a love story!

    Enjoy your books - and the wedding - this week -


    Book By Book

  7. I'm drooling over the books you read last week! All of them are on my TBR pile and I can't wait to read them. Anx of course you have Tiger Lily on your agenda this week so I'm doubly jealous lol. I hope you enjoy your books this week!
    Check out my It's Monday! post :)

  8. I got to see Robert Goolrick when "A Reliable Wife" came out. He was definitely a fascinating guy. ARW continues to be on my "to read" pile!


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.
