It's Monday, What Are You Reading (84)

It's Monday, What Are You Reading is a fun weekly meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journey where we share what we've read and reviewed over the past week and what we plan to read next.

To make up for reading so many books last week-I only read one book this week and it was a reread for my book discussion group. Maybe I should have participated in the Dewey Readathon :)

This week I will be going to the Ohio Library Council convention in Toledo. I don't know how much time I will have for reading but I am taking my Kindle with me. When I get back this weekend, I might have my own personal readathon to try to catch up on my TBR pile and reading challenges!

Books read:

Someone Knows My Name by Lawrence Hill

This is a reread (I first read it last year) because it is my book discussion group's October book. The discussion will be Tuesday and hopefully everyone enjoyed the book as much as I did.

Books reviewed:

Dearly, Departed by Lia Habel
Bet Me by Jennifer Crusie

Currently reading:

The Son of Neptune by Rick Riordan

I am really enjoying this book. As much as I liked The Lost Hero, I prefer The Son of Neptune so far because Percy is back!

What I might read next:

The Rose Garden by Susanna Kearsley

I am looking forward to starting this soon. I am a fan of Susanna Kearsley's books and this sounds like something I'd enjoy too.

Love on the Line by Deeanne Gist

I need to read this soon because it is a book tour book. I'm not exactly in the mood to read this (after reading a couple of chapters I find the heroine annoying) but hopefully I will like it anyway.

The Best of Me by Nicholas Sparks

I will need to read this soon as well because so many people are waiting to read it too! It looks like a good story.

What have you been reading lately?


  1. The Rose Garden looks really interesting to me--hope you enjoy! I'm currently reading Tempest by Julie Cross, The Apothecary by Melloy, and...a few others. ;)

  2. I'd love to get my hands on the Rose Garden.

  3. I like the idea of a personal readathon :) Have a great week!

  4. I hop eyou have fun at the convention and enjoy your reading time!

  5. I have Son of Neptune on my TBR but I want to finish Throne of Fire first.

    I had a busy week of reading. My goodness. I'm shocked at how many I finished. Come see what I read.

  6. Looks like you had some great books this week! I loved Someone Knows My Name and it's not a chore to read it again, I'm sure!

    Hope the book group loves it too. Happy reading!

  7. What a great book list - i hope you get as much reading as you would like to done whilst you are away.

  8. I LOVE the cover of The Rose Garden...and I've added The Best of Me to my list.

    Hope you enjoy your reading!


  9. OMG Percy is back? I must catch up on Rick Riordan's books, loved the Percy ones but haven't tried the others.

  10. The Son of Neptune sounds good - I haven't read any of the series, but I saw the first movie and I really enjoyed it, so I've been on the look out for these to be available at the library!

  11. Such great books! I will have to check out the Sin of Neptune when I have the first Percy series done. So many of my students love that one.

    The covers for Love on the Line and The Rose Garden are so pretty that I will just have to look into thise!

    Have a great week!

  12. I managed to get a copy of Dearly Departed on NetGalley so I'm excited about reading it.
    I've seen mixed reviews for The Rose Garden but hope you enjoy it.
    Have a great week, good luck with catching up on reviews and with your personal read-a-thon :)
