It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

Busy week this week gettng my ducks all in a row for Thanksgiving this coming week.  I spent my weekend at the Miss Dance Convention for my daughter and although I didn't get much reading done, I did get to visit a neat bookstore in Greenville, SC and acquire a few more books.  Always doing my part to keep bookstores viable.  :-)  My reviewing was phenomenal this week but with the holidays coming, I'm sure I won't be able to keep up the pace.  If I can just keep the review stack from growing any larger, I'll consider it a win!  This meme is hosted by Sheila at Book Journey.

Books I completed this past week are:

Crossing on the Paris by Dana Gynther
His Mistress by Christmas by Victoria Alexander
The Lighthouse Road by Peter Geye

Bookmarks are still living in the middle of:

  1. You've worked very hard with the reviews this week! If I do three I feel chuffed! Enjoy the holidays.

  2. I nearly fell off my perch when I saw the number of reviews you completed ... well done, I'm so impressed!!
    Happy Thanksgiving, enjoy the holiday weekend :)

  3. There are a lot on your list that I want to read, too. When to find the time!!!?!? Have a great week!

  4. What a great bunch of books! And that's a lot of reviews! Happy reading :)


  5. Ooh Charlotte Street. I loved Charlotte Street, hope you liked it too.

  6. That is a lot of reviews. I need to get some of mine done.

    What You Wish For looks like something I might pick up. The Casual Vacancy is definitely one that I'll skip!

  7. I am so impressed that you got so many reviews written! I'm going to slink off to see if I can get one finished tonight.
    Have a fantastic week!

  8. Hi Kristen,

    My review pile looks pretty much like yours and I am trying desperately hard to shut my eyes to it and not get too stressed!

    Mind you, my reading level has dropped off a lot just lately, so that should help matters, although I am a little frustrated by this sudden idea of being without a book on the go!

    I shall look forwrad to your review of 'The Lighthouse Road', it sounds intriguing.

    Also, I have heard good things from other bloggers about 'Crossing On The Paris', so that will be another to watch out for.

    Enjoy your Thanksgiving,

I love to hear what you think, especially so I know I'm not just whistling into the wind here at my computer.
