It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? #99

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is a weekly meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journey meant to highlight books you read in the past week, and what you’re planning on reading this week.

Life has been crazy hectic the last couple of months, so I’m now trying to ease myself back into blogging. Since the last one of these posts I did, I went to ALA Annual, moved apartments, had my boyfriend’s mom over for a week, and have played maybe around 10 concerts. In fact, I just finished playing a gig tonight. Phew! But now that the summer is winding down, I’m going to try to recommit myself.

The books I’m listing as finished are since the last time I posted one of these, so a while ago. *I did not read all of these in a week.*

    LOL for the hoping to finish. You’ve got a lot of books for someone so busy huh? LOL Wish I could do that and so amazed you could read A LOT like that. I can only read 1-2 books per week.

    Btw, I’m starting Letters to Katie, an Amish book.

    Happy Monday!

      Reading about the Amish was fascinating for me! I kept bugging my boyfriend to see if he’d want to convert with me.

  2. Elizabeth says:

    My It’s Monday, What Are You Reading

    • Audrey Audrey says:

      Oooh, if you haven’t heard of Night Film I think you will in the near future. People are going to rave about it.

  3. Vicki says:

    The Dinner & Joyland are one my list to read.
    Here’s My Post

    • Audrey Audrey says:

      Joyland was a really nice read. Very sentimental Stephen King, sort of along the lines of “The Body” (made into the movie Stand By Me).

  4. Lindsey says:

    I am very excited to read Night Film. I loved Pessl’s first novel and I’m excited to see what she does this time.

  5. Mystica says:

    Thats a lot of reading accomplished. Enjoy the week.

  6. Belle Read says:

    I was bowled over at first glance of your post and then read that you haven’t posted a “What Are You Reading” in awhile.
    I see several books that I would be happy to try. I have been really curious about Joyland. Liesl and Po looks magical. The trailer is wonderful.

  7. Kimberly @ Turning the Pages says:

    I know all about trying to get back into the blogging world. This past month my posts and reading have been so erratic. I hope you enjoy the books you read this week!
    Come see my It’s Monday! Post :)
