It's Monday! What Are You Reading?!

                 
               


What I Finished Last Week

Fire in the Ashes:
Twenty-Five Years Among
the Poorest Children in America

Educating Alice

What I'm Reading Now

 I'd love to hear your recommendations.






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.

Both your books sound interesting. I'll definitely be back to read your reviews of them.

Have you read The Shoemaker's Wife by Adriana Trigiani - if not, I highly recommend it.

Have a great week and thanks for stopping by my blog.

Thank you for stopping by my blog. =)

I haven't read a non-fiction in a very long time. Fire in The Ashes looks very interesting.

I read a really good book last week and the author is stopping by this Wednesday so I will give away 2 copies. Death of A Schoolgirl. It is the first in a group of mysteries featuring Jane Eyre. The author picks up right where Bronte leaves off. You may enjoy it.

Have a great week!

I can't wait to read your thoughts on Fire in the Ashes. My copy from the library still hasn't came through. Have you read Arcadia by Lauren Groff yet? I heard it's a great read.

I have written both your titles down. I've heard about Jonathan Kozol's nonfiction for years. He's wonderful. Also would like to read about the curious woman.

Just started The Art Forger by B.A. Shapiro last night, and just finished One Last Thing Before I Go by Jonathan Tropper. Reviews to come!

I haven't heard/read any of these books so I wouldn't know what kind of books to suggest.

Love nonfiction!

Deb Nance at Readerbuzz said...

Wouldn't you love to write a book like Educating Alice...traveling around the world and stopping in cool places to take a class?!

Deb Nance at Readerbuzz said...

Thank you for sharing info about this new series.

Deb Nance at Readerbuzz said...

I'm really behind in my reviews. Need to work on that...maybe over Labor Day weekend.

Thanks for the recommendation!

Deb Nance at Readerbuzz said...

Love Kozol as a writer and a teacher and a human being.

Deb Nance at Readerbuzz said...

Both new-to-me, though I've read others by Tropper. Thank you!

Deb Nance at Readerbuzz said...

Oh, I read just about anything, Kate!

Lindsey said...

I recently read The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry. It's a great one if you haven't read it yet.

Jennifer Hartling said...

Both of those sound excellent, I'm looking forward to your reviews! I love nonfiction, I always feel like I'm learning something which is one of my biggest reasons for reading in the first place.

I tried to hook up with you on Facebook but I don't think I can do it because mine is a page and yours is a person, lol. https://www.facebook.com/TheRelentlessReader

Following you on Twitter as well :)

Have a GREAT week of reading!
