It's Monday! What Are You Reading? 7/22/13




   
***************************
Hope you have a good week.

***************************

This is a weekly meme run by Book Journey!

Post the books completed last week, the books you are currently reading, and the books you hope to finish this week. 



Books Completed Last Week:

1.  THE LEMON ORCHARD by Luanne Rice.

2.  WINTER AT DEATH'S HOTEL by Kenneth Cameron.

WINTER AT DEATH'S HOTEL is an enjoyable, change-of-pace mystery with a marvelous, entertaining, and determined main character.


Book Currently Reading:


Books Up Next:

I added a few more, but they are not necessarily in the order I have planned to read them.  I normally read in order of publication or tour date.

And....these are not for reading in the upcoming week.  

The "list" is a means of keeping me organized.  A visual display helps a lot.  :)

  1. You plan to read a lot of books! Not all in the coming week, I hope?
    It must be a difficult choice to make, since all of them have beautiful covers and look really interesting.

    Have a great week & kind regards,

  20. The Lemon Orchard sounds soo good! I drove through a lemon grove in California while vacationing a few years ago, and we all fantasized about just pulling over and living there. Lol.

  30. I finished Hot Flashes & Cold Lemonade by Susan Flett Swiderski. Not I'm back to Team of Rivals by Doris Kearns Goodwin, with breaks for A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius by Dave Eggers. I usually read more than one book at the same time. I'm a multi-tasker.

    Love,
    Janie

  31. Oh wow, a whole LOT of novels here. Interesting to see a new Elizabeth Gilbert novel - I wonder if it would raise as much polemics as Eat Pray Love. :) Enjoy the rest of your reading week!

  38. Last week I finished Charles Dickens: A Life by Claire Tomalin. It was LONG and took a while, but my friend and I discussed it for 3 hours over a Cuban lunch. That was fun!
    This week I will finish The Agony and the Ecstasy by Irivng Stone (his #1 bestselling story of Michelangelo, published in 1961.) Then I hope to finish Midnight's Children by Salman Rushdie. I was in the middle of both of these two weeks ago.
