What are you reading this week?

Mailbox Monday was created by Marcia at The Printed Page. We share books that we found in our mailboxes last week.  

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. 


  1. I like the title and the premise of Some Nerve!

  2. OOh nice! These are all new to me! Hope you enjoy them!

    Here's my Monday Wrapup

    Have a GREAT day!

  3. Some Nerve is one of those challenge books, a Bucket List sort of story, that are so popular, but it's on a more laid-back time scheme.

  4. Nice week....nice mailbox.

    THANKS for stopping by my It's Monday, What are You Reading? Post and my review of Burial Rites.

    I hope you are going to read Burial Rites. It isn't scary at all. It is presented well and is about the last days of the life of the murderess spent with a family in Iceland.

    Have a great week.

  5. I've moved it to the top of my TBR, Elizabeth. Thank you.

  6. Great, Deb.

    Thanks again for stopping by, and I am glad I helped you.


  7. I've been interested in Some Nerve since I'm petrified of heights. I hope it's a good one!

  8. Great stack! Some Nerve was on my "considering" list but I picked up the new Alice Hoffman instead. It's what I'm reading today. Let me know what you think of the Alice Ripley book.

  9. The XX Factor is very interesting. I am sure Some Nerve could appeal to a wide variety of readers.

  10. The author of Some Nerve seems to be afraid of almost everything! (Not to sound mean, but I have been surprised to see all the different things she is attempting to be less fearful of...but, oddly, not public speaking!)

  11. I read Just Like Fate by Cat Patrick & Suzanne Young last week. It was a pleasant book that makes you stop and think. I'm currently reading A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin and The Giver by Lois Lowry. The latter is for banned books week. I hope you enjoy your week of reading.


Thank you for stopping by and sharing your thoughts!
