What are you reading today?!


It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is where we share what we read this past week, what we hope to read this week…. and anything in between!  This is a great way to plan out your reading week and see what others are currently reading as well… you never know where that next “must read” book will come from!

I love being a part of this and I hope you do too! As part of this weekly meme Book Journey loves to encourage you all to go and visit the others participating in this meme. Book Journey offers a weekly contest for those who visit 10 or more of the Monday Meme participants and leave a comment telling BJ how many you visited.

  3. I look forward to your review of Maine. The Secret Garden is one of my all time favorites and Educating Alice looks fascinating.

    I'm reading The Moonstone by Wilkie Collins and just finished one by Jennifer Haigh called The Condition.

    Enjoy your week!

  6. I thoroughly enjoyed Maine...and a few months ago, read The Secret Garden for the first time! I had it on Sparky, so I didn't get to enjoy the lovely cover or illustrations. Wish I had read it as a child....

    Thanks for stopping by my blog, and enjoy your week.

  12. I remember reading A Winkle in Time in school and hating it. I remember my kids hating it when they had to read it. I remembering taking their copy and reading it a few years ago and loving it. Some books just get better when you read them at the right age.

    Happy Reading!!

    1. It is odd how that works. You are right. You have to read the books at the right time.

  16. Such a happy story. And not in that fake way that some children's books are happy.
