It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

I didn't even manage to post this last week because I was so consumed by the book fair. of course, I read next to nothing and reviewed less than nothing so it's not like I missed anything! This week's post then, is a double header of sorts even if it really is mainly just from this past week. This meme is hosted by Sheila at One Person's Journey Through a World of Books.

Books I completed this week are:

Heart With Joy by Steve Cushman

  1. I'm reading Queen of Palmyra in advance of BiblioFeast. Its reminicint of The Help and that book about the bees, if you ask me. Same genre.

  2. I also have a long list of reviews I want to write and post.

    I'm currently in the middle of my research. Here's what I'm reading this week.


I have had to disable the anonymous comment option to cut down on the spam and I apologize to those of you for whom this makes commenting a chore. I hope you'll still opt to leave me your thoughts. I love to hear what you think, especially so I know I'm not just whistling into the wind here at my computer.
