It's Monday! What Are You Reading - 7/29/13

   
***************************
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 SERPENT AND THE PEARL by Kate Quinn.

Excellent historical research, but a bit slow for me.

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 for organization along with my Excel lists.  :)

  7. The Serpent and the Pearl has a lovely cover. Sorry to hear it's kinda slow...I just finished The Returned. That meandered a bit, but got quite good. I'm sure you'll enjoyed it!

  8. I hear you about the visual list working out well. I have a private blog with just book covers of titles I own but haven't read yet for just that purpose, since I am definitely a mood reader. Hope the Moriarty book is as good as What Alice Forgot. Have a good week.

  12. I finished Hot Flashes & Cold Lemonade by Susan Flett Swiderski, which I absolutely loved. I continue to multi-task with Team of Rivals by Doris Kearns Goodwin and A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius by Dave Eggers.

    Love,
    Janie

  15. Elizabeth, your bookclub will enjoy Fly Away if you haven't read her before. I think it was a 'bad' sequel to such an amazing 1st, Firefly Lane. Hope you enjoy.

    I want to read Husbands Secret next.

  20. Historical Fiction can be tricky. Sometimes too much research bogs down the story.
    I hope you have a great week!

  22. Enjoy the lovely line up, can't wait to see what you think of The Husband's Secret. Have a great week!

  23. Historical fiction is sometimes difficult I think, it must be historically correct, without falling into the trap of giving a history lecture on every page.

    I hope you have a great reading week,
    kind regards,
