It's Monday! What Are You Reading? July 11, 2016

It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is a place to meet up and share what you have been, are and about to be reading over the week. It's an opportunity to visit other blogs and to comment on their reads. And ... you can add to that ever growing TBR pile! So welcome everyone. This meme started with J Kaye's Blog and then was taken up by Sheila from Book Journey. Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn at the Book Date. And here we are!


It was a tough week saying goodbye to a dear friend. Cancer sucks! And then life goes on, doesn't it? One day at a time. I had a full weekend and saw some of the kids and grandkiddos. That always makes the days better. Hubby and I are trying to plan a vacation this summer but the weeks just keep slipping away and it doesn't get planned. Hopefully we can find some time to get away soon. Have a good week everyone and happy reading!

I really love my reading life!

What are you reading this week?

Be sure to check the sidebar for my current giveaways!


  1. I can certainly understand the vacation procrastination! Husband and I have been talking about ordering curtains for one of our rooms for several weeks now. A whole vacation? It might never get planned! Maybe you just need to pick where you want to go, and see if husband will jump into your plans. :)

    Hope you enjoy your books this week!

    1. Thanks for stopping by Lindsey! I think we have a destination and time planned. Now we just have to go! Happy reading!

  2. So sorry about your friend, and yes, cancer sucks!

    Your books look good. I have In Twenty Years, eager to read it soon, and I'm getting Falling this week from Vine.

    Broken Pieces looks like a book I'd enjoy.

    Thanks for sharing, and here are MY WEEKLY UPDATES

    1. Thanks Laurel-Rain! I have been loving all of my books lately. Broken Pieces was soooo good and touched on things that on going on in my life right now so that made it even more special. Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend.

  3. Oh, The Ocean at the End of the Lane. I've been dying to read that one. Great choice!

    My It's Monday! What Are You Reading? post.

    1. Thanks for stopping by Majanka! The Ocean wasn't my usual kind of read but I am so glad I read it. Happy reading!

  4. Oh yay pleased that you loved Falling so that means I just have to buy it! Hope you do get away for a little while you most likely really need it. Go!

    1. Thanks for stopping by Kathryn! Update - we have a timeframe and place for our vacation. Now we just need to get some reservations made. We may make it yet! Have a great weekend and happy reading!

  5. I'm so sorry for the loss of you friend. I also lost a dear friend to cancer this're right. It sucks!

  6. Sorry for the loss of your friend.

    You have some interesting book picks this week. Hopefully some reading can regenerate your soul.

  7. I've only read the Twenty Years book from your list which was good.
    Sad about your friend. Always hard.
