It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

Hmph! School supply shopping, the start of school itself, and the resumption of all kid activities has obviously taken a whack at my reading and reviewing as evidenced below. Here's hoping this coming week I'll be able to find a better balance again. This meme is hosted by Sheila at Book Journey.
