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.

    1. It's hard to read because it's the story of a son and his dying mom reading together before she passed.

  7. I am interested in the End of your Life Book Club. Cant wait to see if it is as good as people say it is.

  8. I hope this week is better for you, and I hope to get my steam back, too. I think my downfall was stubbornly persisting in reading a book with which I did not engage! At all!

    I don't like not finishing, but what I learned: when I don't think I'll enjoy a review book, just say no!

    Thanks for visiting my blog, and have a great week.

  12. What fascinating titles! I hope you enjoy them.
    I am just one person and clearly an overachiever. I have to find a way to back off on the quantity next year. It's the old story of my eyes are bigger than my stomach only for me it's books and I want to read them all. :-)
    Happy Reading to you!

  13. We've owned that particular edition of the Nutcracker and enjoy it every Christmas. Is The End of the World Book Club good? What a premise. Thanks for visiting.
