It's Monday! What Are You Reading? August 22, 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!


We have had some beautiful weather lately and I spent most of Sunday morning sitting on the patio, reading. It was heavenly and so relaxing. Saturday was filled with family events and made for a long day and no reading time so it was nice to have that time Sunday morning. I hope you have a great week and are able to enjoy some nice weather, wherever you are. Happy reading!

  1. I still have yet to read a Rainbow Rowell book and it's killing me a little bit inside. Looks like a great line-up, thanks for sharing!

    1. I am going to have to read more of her's. I think I have Attachments on my Kindle. Seems like when they get there, they don't get read. :( Thanks for stopping by and happy reading.

  3. Eleanor and Park! I enjoyed that one, as well as Attachments. I still have a few Rowell books to catch up on, though.

    Happy reading!

    1. Everyone is commenting on Rowell's books. I really am going to have to read another one of her's. Thanks for stopping by and happy reading.

  4. I have read three Rainbow Rowell books and enjoyed them, but still haven't read Eleanor and Park...which I have on my Kindle! Must do so.

    Cold, Cold Heart looks good...I enjoy Karin Slaughter.

    Have a great week, and here are MY WEEKLY UPDATES
