Welcome to my weekly update for July 20, 2015! It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is hosted by Sheila at Book Journey. She’s taking a bit of personal leave so I’m also linking to Kimberly at Caffeinated Book Reviewer.

So yesterday was my birthday. Number 37. Where on earth does the time go? I swear it feels like I just graduated from college a couple of weeks ago! My husband and I drove to Hilton Head Island in South Carolina for the weekend and chilled on the beach, biked around, ate way too much, and read. In other words, it was a perfect weekend.


Review: Heart’s Blood by Juliet Marillier–5 Stars

Review: All Over but the Shoutin’ by Rick Bragg–4.5 Stars

How to Tell Toledo from the Night Sky by Lydia Netzer, read by Joshilyn Jackson

Currently Reading:

Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige

Fairest by Marissa Meyer, read by Rebecca Soler

Undaunted Courage: Meriwether Lewis, Thomas Jefferson, and the Opening of the American West by Stephen E. Ambrose–I’m almost done!

Up Next:

I honestly don’t know. I should finish both Undaunted Courage and Dorothy Must Die this week but I’m not sure what I’ll be in the mood for after that. I was supposed to start listening to Summer Knight by Jim Butcher last week but it was finally my turn for Fairest, so Butcher’s book got postponed. I’ve been waiting several months for Fairest.

What are you reading this week?

Other Posts You May Enjoy:


  1. Happy birthday! It sounds like a lovely get-away. Enjoy your new books…I am curious about Dorothy Must Die.


  2. Happy Birthday! I had a tough time leaving my 30's behind (I'm 42 ) time just goes so fast!

    Have a great week!

  3. 37 is young! You were born not long after I graduated from high school. Enjoy your birthday weekend and your books.

  4. Happy birthday! I turn 37 next month. It seems like time has been flying since I turned 20. I'd love to be in my 20s again but I'm trying to remind myself that I'm still youngish 🙂

    I hope you like Fairest. It's definitely different from the other books but it gives interesting insight on Levana and Winter.
