It's Monday! What Are You Reading? (October 26)

It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is hosted by J.Kaye at J.Kaye's Book Blog. Each week we share what's going on in our worlds of books and blogging!

Books I Read Last Week:

Suddenly by Bonnie Burnard: This wasn't one of my recent favourites. It plodded for me, perhaps because of the subject matter (cancer and dying), perhaps because of the unassuming writing style.

After You by Julie Buxbaum: I absolutely loved this story about Elle picking up the pieces after her best friend dies while making difficult decisions about her own personal life. I highly recommend this one to any fiction fan.

Books I Plan To Read This Week:

Ruby's Diary by Ruby Gettinger: This is the book that I plan to read first this week. I'm looking forward to reading this (hopefully) inspiring story of Ruby's own weight loss journey.

The Brightest Star in the Sky by Marian Keyes: This is an ARC copy of Marian Keye's latest and I hope to read it so that I can post my review on its actual release date, November 3rd.

That's my plan for this week- what are you planning on reading?


  1. Sorry the Burnard plodded. That always makes me sad, when a book just doesn't capture me like I'd hoped.

  2. Is this the Bonnie Burnard who wrote "The Good House?" I've heard that's a good book.

  3. I'm so jealous you get to read The Brightest Star!! I hope you enjoy it :)

  4. Holy cow! Way to go landing an ARC of The Brightest Star in the Sky!
