It's Monday!! What Are You Reading? 8/26/2013


   
***************************
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.  Angel Heart by Marie Laval.
 

2.  The Widows of Braxton County by Jess McConkey.

LOVED it...great mystery...lots of suspense.

 3.  Men We Reaped by Jesmyn Ward.

It is a Memoir.

Book Currently Reading: 


Songs Of Willow Frost

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.  They are books into and including December.

The "list" is a means of keeping me organized.  A visual display helps a lot for organization along with my Excel lists.  :)

Oh dear on the arrangement of these books.  I can't seem to get them all in a row.

  3. I like the idea of listing what you have coming up but I manage to get wildly off track more often than not. LOL!

    Happy reading this week.

  4. That's a way to keep me "in line" with my reading. A visual display is great for me. I also have a written list. :)

    THANKS for stopping, Kristen.

  9. I am wanting to read Widows book, and Songs of Willow Frost. Oh also The Butterfly Sisters too. Lots of good choices on your horizon there; enjoy!

    I like to keep track with a notebook and with covers, easier to choose that way if you are a mood reader such as I am. Wish I knew how to do spreadsheets :)

  12. I love looking at book lists like that - especially with visuals, seeing the covers always has a much bigger impact on me. I recognise a few (and have a couple myself) but I see lots of new titles to look into!

    Have a great week!

  13. GREAT, Shannon. They covers are pretty and the visual does help.

  15. THANKS for stopping Rita.

    Excel is a spreadsheet program if you have it.

    If you aren't comfortable doing a spreadsheet, why not make a table in Word. I have done that too.
    Or make a list of the books you want to read and their order. You can e-mail me if you like.

    Have a great day.

  16. I agree...The Butterfly Sisters does look good.

  17. I know that I have said this before, but I do so love the books that you read. I have The Widows of Braxton County to read and have wanted to read Songs of Willow Frost since I first saw it. Enjoy.

  31. I will be interested to see what you think of Men We Reaped. Her debut novel was very powerful.

    ReplyDelete
  32. If you ever discover how to line everything up, let us all know! Tricky.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I will let everyone know about lining up.

    I "think" it has to do with spaces in the HTML. I may play with it a bit, but then again, I might delete something.

    I will keep you posted.

  39. Hi Cynthia....these books are to be read into the new year. :)

  41. I was fortunate to see Jesmyn Ward at a book festival I attended a few years ago. She was a very powerful speaker. I haven't gotten around to reading any of her work yet, but if she writes like she speaks, I know I'll be impressed. Have a good week!
