Welcome to my weekly update for August 13, 2012! It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is hosted by Sheila at Book Journey.

I started getting my blogging life back in order last week. Thank goodness! I’m not terribly active in the community because of time constraints, but I still missed the interaction I do have!

Other Posts You May Enjoy:


  1. Interesting, a book by John Lithgow. I enjoyed watching him in 3rd Rock when I was younger.

    Here's my Monday Post and Giveaway.

  2. I have had Madam Tussaud on my TBR shelf for so long. I think I am intimidated by the length. Sad, I know.

  3. Lots of great books, I have The Night Bookmobile and The Facts in the Case of the Departure of Miss Finch on my TBR pile. Happy reading!

    What I've Been Reading

  4. I've gotta read "The Night Bookmobile" Oh my gosh! YAY for libraries!!

    Whatcha readin' this week @ the Brunette Librarian 🙂

  5. I read and loved State of Wonder except for the ending. I find Patchett has a habit of writing endings that make me want to throw the book across the room.

  6. I've read all of Michelle Moran's except Madame Tussaud, even though it's on my bookshelf. Reviewed The Second Empress recently and loved it. Have a great week and happy reading 🙂

  7. I haven't heard of any of the book sin your Currently Reading list, I hope you enjoy them.

    Have a great reading week!

  8. I enjoyed both Madame Tussaud and State of Wonder 🙂

    Have a great week of reading!

  9. The Night Bookmobile is a strange one. I still need to post my review of it.

    My favorite book last week was Wyrd Sisters by Terry Pratchett. Please come see what else I'm reading.

  10. I liked Madame Tussaud though I prefer Cleopatra's Daughter. I'm not sure I'll be reading The Second Empress though. I wish she'd go back to writing about ancient history…

    I want to read The Night Bookmobile sometime. The concept sounds really interesting.

I love to hear from you! Please contact me (menu bar, above) if you're having trouble commenting.
