It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

Wow, what a difference a week makes!  Last week was snowy and icy and perfect for staying by the fire and reading - this week, I may have to break out the shorts and t-shirts again!  Silly Texas weather!!  But I still have some great books lined up to read for this week.

I find myself at this time of year looking back at the books I've read, the ones I didn't get around to reading, and I want to cram everything in before the calendar turns to January.  But I've told myself to slow down and savor the last few days of the year! 

Oh, and big news, well, sort of big to me - I finished up all of my challenges for 2013!  I loved the Where In The World Are You Reading? challenge sponsored by our beloved leader Sheila from BookJourney.  I didn't keep up with my map very well, but I found all those states I was looking for, including the Virgin Islands!  And the A-Z challenge, sponsored by Lori at Escape Into Reading with Dollycas, was fun - except when it came to finding an "X" book that wasn't X-rated!  But I did! 

Ok, enough blathering ... here is what I'm reading this week!  Hope you find some time to squeeze a bit of pleasure reading in this week too!

I'll have to check out that book by Wally Lamb. I read She's Come Undone in October and had a love/hate relationship with it, lol
