What Are You Reading?


Today is Monday, July 25, 2011...What Are You Reading?

This weekly meme is brought to you by the hot, the smokin', the sizzling, the you-can-fry-an-egg-on-her-she's-so-steamy, Sheila at Book Journey.  The heat wave in the Northeast?  Yep, it's all her fault.  That heat surged all the way from Minnesota!

 I spent the last week in North Carolina with my family, and we had a wonderful vacation, despite the heat wave.  I have one speed when I'm down there - slow - so I am thoroughly relaxed and incredibly happy. I expected to match my book count of last year - 7 books in 7 days - but the heat wave kept us away from the beach, and my "reading spot", during the hottest part of the day.  I think I did ok.

I can't wait to hear what you thought of the Werewolf book. I have been thinking about grabbing it, but have been a little unsure about that. It looks like you have gotten a lot of good reading in this week.

I am reading The Gap Year by Sarah Bird and am liking it a lot more than I had expected to.

Yay for North Carolina! I hope you had a great vacation!

I adored Garden Spells, and I'm off to check out The Soldier's Wife. Looks like something I might like.

Enjoy your week!
