What are you reading today?!

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is where we share what we read this past week, what we hope to read this week…. and anything in between!  This is a great way to plan out your reading week and see what others are currently reading as well… you never know where that next “must read” book will come from!

I love being a part of this and I hope you do too! As part of this weekly meme Book Journey loves to encourage you all to go and visit the others participating in this meme. Book Journey offers a weekly contest for those who visit 10 or more of the Monday Meme participants and leave a comment telling BJ how many you visited.


  1. Those are all new to me but I hope you enjoyed them and enjoy your reads for this week! Happy Reading!!

    Here's my Monday Wrapup

    Have a GREAT day!

    Old Follower :)

  2. Finally getting around to CLOUD ATLAS.

    1. Curious to see what you think about this book. I thought I'd read it, but, if I did, I didn't write a review. Maybe I'm remembering another David Mitchell book, Black Swan Green.

  3. I am very excited about We Sinners anyway, but five "buzzes" is high praise indeed. Thanks for visiting my blog, and enjoy your week. Le Road Trip looks like another good read.

  4. Wow! You had a good week. I am not familiar with any of the books you read but am glad you found them enjoyable. Happy reading!

  5. I always note books that receive "5s"! Have a great week of reading.

  6. Le Road Trip and We Sinners both sound really good, lots of great books there!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog :)

  7. These are all new to me and they all look good!
    Have a great week!

  8. I can't wait to read your thoughts on Educating Alice. I've just finished one book and now I'll probably read an ARC. Have a great week!

  9. You always have such a great list of books going, love them!

    Have a great week of reading :)

  10. I'm working my way through the Breadwinner series - it is a heart wrenching readmat times. Your other books look very interesting.

  11. Thanks for stopping by. All your books are new to me but several of them look really interesting. Happy Reading

  12. I really enjoyed the Breadwinner, but haven't heard of the other books you read!

  13. The Unconquered looks interesting. Thanks!

  14. I haven't heard of The Conquered but it looks really intriguing! You do read some of the best stuff.

  15. We sinners sounds very interesting....adding to my TBR List.
    Thanks for stoppig by my blog, Reading in White Bear Lake

  16. These are all new to me, but they do look fascinating if intense. Have a great week!

  17. Paris, I Love You But You're Bringing Me Down sounds interesting, though I expected the reasons for disappointment and readjustment to be different than the blurb on Goodreads makes it sound.

  18. I liked your review of We Sinners, it's going on my TBR pile and now I might have to check out Le Road Trip. Have a great week and happy reading :)
