 What I Reviewed This Week

I'm working on reviewing a huge stack of fifteen books.

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.

  7. What a great week you had! Enjoy this one, too...and thanks for sharing.


  8. Kathy, Reading Magic was...well, magical. It made things very simple and, after IRA last week, I needed a little bit of simple.

  9. Yes, I'm very curious about Loki's Wolves. Let me know what you think.

  10. Thanks for stopping by - here's hoping your new shelf additions are all great reads. A Curious Man looks like it could be an interesting read!

  11. Happily, I'm off work today, so it just might be a day of reading and daydreaming.

  12. You always have such interesting reads. Have a great week!!

  13. Oooh, you have some interesting sounding reads coming up! The World is a Carpet and A Curious Man both sound fascinating to me :)

    Have a great week!

  14. WOW! You got some great books and finished some good-looking titles, too. Now that the Read-a-thon is done, my reading mojo is still cranking. I busted through 1/2 of Young House Love last night and will be finishing up Relish by Lucy Knisley. :)

  15. Loki's Wolves and The Curious Man... are catching my eye. I look forward to future thoughts on those two.
    Wow! Fifteen reviews to get through. I wish you luck :-P

  16. Wow! That's a lot! 15 for this week?! Hope you enjoy them all!!

  17. Lots of great books there, can't wait to get my copy of Loki's Wolves! Reading Magic is great, have just lent my copy to my sister. Enjoy your books and happy reading this week :)

  18. Wow, what a wonderful list! I am currently reading James Lee Burke's "The Glass Rainbow" - Burke is always an awesome read - but with summer coming, I'm going to be in the mood to read about tropical islands and pirates soon!

  19. I love the look of Sugar! Happy reading.

  20. The Magic Pudding is a great Australian children's classic as is Mem Fox a beloved author. Enjoy!
