It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

It's Monday! What are you reading? is hosted by J.Kaye at J.Kaye's Book Blog. I haven't participated in this meme for a couple of weeks, but I'm ready to join in again. I just feel as if I'm still recovering from the busy holiday season. Am I the only one who's still trying to get back to normal? I'm back to work now, the kids are back in school, and I seem to be back in some kind of routine, so my reading is back on track, thank goodness. Now if I can just get my butt in gear and catch up on some reviews!

What I read last week:

Where We Have to Go by Lauren Kirshner: This was a beautful coming- of- age novel and I will be reviewing this shortly.

Love Struck by Chantel Simmons: I only received this ARC last week, but it really seemed like perfect weekend reading. It was! Review to come on Feb. 15th.

What I Hope to Read This Week:

Denise's Daily Dozen by Denise Austin: For an upcoming blog tour

In The Wake of Loss: Short Stories by Sheila James: This book of short stories seems like the perfect book to read as I read sections of Denise Austin's book. I read on someone's blog that short stories are meant to be read and then savoured, so I'm going to try to read this one slowly.

I highly doubt that I'll get more than that read this week! I also will be participating in two blog tours this week. One is for Spin, Catherine McKenzie's debut novel (it was wonderful!) and will include an author interview as well as a giveaway, so stay tuned. I'll also be participating in the blog tour for Denise's Daily Dozen!


  1. Once again, you have opened the door to new books for me! :) I just love it.

  2. Oh my, let me know how that Denise Austin book is! I think if I read it, I would imagine her doing her cha-cha moves and using that distinct voice of hers. I have a few of her exercise dvds and tapes. I crack up every time I do them since she's really kind of spastic! Hope you're doing well. How are you staying warm?
