It's Monday, What Are You Reading?




Well, where did last week go? I did get quite a lot of reading done, but also Father's Day rolled around and some other "real life" events, and didn't get to as much as I planned.


Also, it seems that I'm always late to the part at my friend Sheila's meme - "It's Monday, What Are You Reading?" (see her blog for more information on all the great blogs who particpate in this weekly get-together! http://bookjourney.wordpress.com/2010/06/14/its-monday-what-are-you-reading-40/) I have great intentions of being early....well, better late than never, I guess!


Here's what my week looked like, and what I've got to look forward to!

Dragon Haven by Robin Hobb - LOVE this series!


Paradise Under Glass: An Amateur Creates A Conservatory Garden by Ruth Kassinger - as a gardener, I was fascinated by this book!

Hi Sharon I am a new follower and also a blogger,

I do news, reviews, commentary on PNR, UF and anything supernatural, paranormal or magical in books, film and just about anyplace. Hope you will come by.

I am currently reading Fatally Flaky

Sharon you can be as late as you like - the door is always open for you. :) Your books look wonderful but I am most interested in the Dean Koontz Frankenstein book. This is a series right? I don't believe this is the first one.... how many are there? Is this good?

LOL - I am obviously curious about this book!

Hi Steph, Thanks for stopping by! I'll be over directly!

Sheila - The Dean Koontz....sigh...it's the fourth in the Frankenstien series, and the first I've read...and it was really good, but......
Well, you'll see!

Omigosh, Miss Ruth - thank you so much for stopping by! Loved your book, and am working on my review of it as we speak! (or type...) I can't wait to read your next work!

How are you liking the Laura Bush book? No matter what I thought about her husband, I always pretty much liked her! And she loves books; what's not to like about that?

I'm reading a book to help me deal with life more effectively, specifically, how to get what I want, how to make peace between who I am and what everyone else in my life expects of me. Not an impossible task! I'm reading "Streetwise Spirituality" by Carol Marleigh Kline, who used to be a television anchor and talk show host, among other things. It's helping me see how the past -- actions, attitudes and behavior -- is affecting the future (not to mention the present) either consciously or unconsciously.
