It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

It's Monday! What Are You Reading? Is a meme hosted by Shelia over at Book Journey. A weekly check in to see what you are currently reading and what is coming up. Head over to Shelia's blog to see what others are reading this week.

Long, long time since I did a It's Monday! What are you Reading post. I lost my blogging mojo there for awhile, but am trying to get it back, especially as I am taking part in a book tour and giveaway soon - but more about that later!

What am I reading now.

Close Range: Wyoming Stories by Annie Proulx
At least, I think this is what I am reading now. I finished a book this morning (refused to get out of bed until I did - I love holidays!) and this was recommended by a friend, so I think I will give it a go.

What I've  Read Since I Was Last Here!

Bit of a list!

The Complete Peanuts: 1967 - 1968 - Charles Schulz
Disrupting Grace - Kristen Richburg
Jitterbug Perfume - Tom Robbins

Hellfire & Damnation II by Connie Corcoran Wilson

I'll be taking part in a book tour for it in October, with a review and an author interview. I've also been given a digital copy to give away! Head over to the "book tour" link to check out how to enter.

What's next?

Who knows! Our next book group book is A Private Life by Michael Kirby - I'm really looking forward to that. I also just bought The Casual Vacancy by J.K Rowling - interested to see what life after Potter is like. And of course, there is always more Pratchett!

So what are you reading? Leave me a link, I'd love to know!


  1. Ahh! The Complete Peanuts! So wise.

    Here's my It's Monday! What Are You Reading? I hope you will stop by!

    1. Can't go wrong with Peanuts! Schulz was a total genius!

  2. You've been busy :) I haven't read that Proulx but the cover is gorgeous!

    1. Yep, I love the cover too. Unfortunately i'ts not the same cover on my copy!

  3. Starting a day with a book in bed sounds wonderful! Enjoy the rest of your holiday. :)

  4. Nice line up of titles, I picked up The Casual Vacancy too, the cover is just hideous! Enjoy the holidays and happy reading :)

  5. I like Proulx's stories. I hope you do too!

    My favorite book this week was Dr. Seuss: The Cat Behind the Hat by Caroline W. Smith. Please come see what I'm reading now.

  6. I have missed your Monday readings :) always manage to add one my list from your blog. :)

    1. That may be the nicest comment I have ever received! Thank you!

  7. I am finally getting around to some of the Monday posts! It has been pretty crazy with the Banned Book Week festivities and hosting all the giveaways... fun but crazy. I wanted to tell you happy reading this week :)
