It's Monday, What Are You Reading?

It's Monday!  What Are You Reading?  It's a weekly meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journey where book bloggers come together to discuss what's on the top of their to read pile.  It's a fabulous look ahead at the reading week.

I'm currently recovering from the Dutch football teams loss in the Euro Cup.  I'm not sure how long it will take me to recover, if it's even possible.  But things will definitely brighten up on Friday when it's my daughters Kindergarten graduation ceremony!!!

Last week I read:
Something Fierce: Memoirs of a Revolutionary Daughter by Carmen Aguirre - such an interesting read!
Ru by Kim Thuy - a beautifully written novel
Stand By Me by Neta Jackson - lovely Christian fiction novel

Reviews coming this week for all.

I am currently reading:

The Red House by Mark Haddon - estranged family members spend a week together in a country house

No Greater Love by Levi Benkert - Levi and his family move to Ethiopia to work in an orphanage for children nearly killed due to superstition

Next I'm Going To Read:


Breakdown by Sara Paretsky - tweens from powerful Chicago families stumble across a dead body, stabbed through the heart vampire style and V.I. Warshawski investigates

Born to Be Brad by Brad Goreski - celebrity stylist Brad, of The Rachel Zoe Project fame shares his childhood in Port Perry, Ontario and what life as a fashion stylist is like.

What are you reading this week?


  1. I really want to read The Red House, I enjoyed Haddon's last book and I am curious about this one.

    Also, Born to be Brad looks so cute! I love Brad!

    1. I love Brad, I was so excited to see he wrote a book!

  2. You're reading some very interesting looking books! Hope you enjoy them all!

    1. Thanks Kristen! I like to mix it up, and since I've started blogging I've found so many different genres so it's easy to line up some interesting books.

  3. You are doing very bad things to my tbr list.
    Something Fierce sounds really interesting. I just read Great House, which had a bit about living under Pinochet.
    No Greater Love sounds like an inspiring read. I will have to look into that one.
