It's Monday, What Are You Reading?

It's Monday What Are You Reading? is a weekly meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journey.  It's a great way to meet book bloggers, find out what they're reading and other bookish goodness!

Last week I:
Attended a luncheon at the Random House of Canada offices to celebrate the release of Karen Thompson Walker's The Age of Miracles.  Myself and five other bloggers were invited to have lunch with Karen, listen to her talk about the process of writing the book and gush over how much we loved the book (because it is a-mazing!)

  3. I see quite a few people are reading Rebecca - I need to read it one day!

    I have the Emily Giffin short story and am hoping to get to it soon. I hear she has a new book coming out later this summer I think.

    Have a great week!

  5. Nice assortment of titles. I read Rebecca years ago and don't remember much about it. If I could fit it in between new review books, it might be time for a re-read. My Monday Report is here. Happy reading!
