It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? November 13

November 13, 2017 It's Monday! What Are You Reading? 13

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 a great post to organize yourself. It’s an opportunity to visit and comment, and er… add to that ever growing TBR pile! So welcome in 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.


Really great books, and I was starting to feel like I’m on a roll with loving all the books I’m reading…but then…something I didn’t love.


I was about 25% into this advanced  e galley and I’m not sure I want to keep reading.  I’m not in love with the characters and it’s moving a little slow moving up to any major conflict.  I may return to this book.

Currently Reading:

I haven’t actually started either of theses but these are my reading plans for this week.  Everyone is raving about Last Christmas in Paris, and I love books written in letters.  The Story of Arthur Truluv is from of my favorite authors, Elizabeth Berg, it’s publishing next week, so I am excited to read it.

Currently Listening:

What can I say?  Wiley Cash writes so beautifully and with such a passion for his characters.  I am loving this story of Ella May, the struggles of everyone who works in the textile mills and the hope for a better wages, and working conditions the Union gives her and others.  The mixed points of view and dual time line just seem to add to this book.

What’s Next: 

I’ve listened to the first two books in the Winter Series from Elin Hilderbrand, I have the last two in digital book format and they are really delightful holiday reads.  The author is also going to be at a book store near me on November 20th and I’d like to meet her.

Lisa Genova‘s book publishes in March, and I look forward to this new one.

The Only Girl in the World is a memoir publishing in December.

I hope you’ve been immersed in a good book or two, so what are you reading?

    I loved Cash’s earlier book, but haven’t picked up this one. Maybe I should rethink that…

    I devoured the first three Winter books between Christmas and New Year last year… can’t wait to read book four. Maybe over Thanksgiving weekend if I’m lucky!

    This week, I hope to read both Poison and The Story of Arthur Truluv; I love Elizabeth Berg, but haven’t read anything by Galt Niederhoffer. I’ve also read mixed reactions to Poison.

    I want to read Wonder…and see the movie.

    Enjoy your week, and here are MY WEEKLY UPDATES

      Thanks for stopping by Erin, I’m anxious to hear other’s thoughts on Poison, I hate when I’m just not into a book. You have a great week too.

    My son’s class has been reading Wonder the past few weeks. Are you planning to see the movie?

    Hope you enjoy all of those winter-themed books. It’s certainly the season to read books where the characters are cold like we are! 🙂

      Hi Lindsey, Yes I am planning on seeing the movie, I was just making dinner and movie plans with my husband. I love a winter themed book, but it’s not cold here, I live in Florida..ha ha.
