It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?
Welcome to It’s Monday! What Are You Reading! 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 I love to encourage you all to go and visit the others participating in this meme. I offer a weekly contest for those who visit 10 or more of the Monday Meme participants and leave a comment telling me how many you visited. **You do not have to have a blog to participate! You receive one entry for every 10 comments, just come back here and tell me how many in the comment area.

Congratulations! Please email me your book choice out of the Reading Cafe at firstname.lastname@example.org. **And note, once I get the new shelves in there will be a lot of additions to the giveaway shelves.
I think the big question is “am I reading?” I am, really I am…. and listening to audio – AND enjoying both… but it seems as thought you wouldn’t really know it here. I have been planning on posting our book club review of The Crying Tree since Wednesday but each day I am doing something else and by the time I sit down to do it… I am too tired, and in the mornings, no time to write it out. GAH. I hate talking about the time thing week after week and I am praying that it will pass quickly and I will be back on my review track soon.
Here is what I did post this past week:
Anastasia’s Secret by Susanne Dunlap (YA review by Cameron)
Saving Sammy The Boy Who Caught OCD by Beth Maloney (audio review)
My Library Sale Finds (the books…the movies and yeah, the audio too!)
What I Learned By Working The Book Sale (I spent a day working our fall library sale and learned a few interesting things that I did not pick up on when I am on the shopping side of it)
It has been a long time since I have had 4 or more reviews in a week like I used to… can not wait to get back to that!
This coming week, starting Monday afternoon I will be at Camp Benedict until Friday afternoon. I am taking audio and a couple books and hope to get some reading time in. Here is what I will be taking with me for the weeks reading:
Alaska in the 1920s is a difficult place for Jack and Mabel. Drifting apart, the childless couple discover Faina, a young girl living alone in the wilderness. Soon, Jack and Mabel come to love Faina as their own. But when they learn a surprising truth about the girl, their lives change in profound ways.
That’s a really poor synopsis right? However I have heard good things on the blogs about this one so this will be my listen!
Tollie Erasmus, an unsavory bank robber on the run, is found dead hanging from the neck in a remote location. A bible is stuck in his left hand and at first it seems that this is a simple case of suicide. Lieutenant Kramer and his Bantu assistant Mickey Zondi are not convinced though. Soon another criminal ends up at the end of a noose; a message to Kramer and Zondi: Someone is upholding a code of justice that goes beyond the South Africa court system.
Somewhere there’s a killer who knows far too much about the hangman’s craft, and Lieutenant Kramer and Zondi must find him before his trail of death continues.
Cam has raised her daughter Aubrey alone ever since her ex left to join a cult. But now the bond between mother and daughter seems to have disappeared. While Cam is frantic to see Aubrey, a straight-A student, at the perfect college, on a path that Cam is sure will provide her daughter success and happiness, Aubrey suddenly shows no interest in her mother’s plans. Even the promise of an exciting gap year saving baby seals or bringing clean water to remote villages hasn’t tempted her. She prefers pursuing a life with her wrong-side-of-the-tracks football-hero boyfriend and her own secret hopes. Both mourn the gap that has grown between them, but Cam and Aubrey seem locked in a fight without a winner. Can they both learn how to hold onto dreams . . . and when to let go to grasp something better.
