I hope you had a great reading week.

This is a weekly meme now hosted by Kathryn at BOOK DATE!

A BIG thank you to Sheila at BOOK JOURNEY for all your years of hosting.  Thanks for keeping this meme alive by "passing the baton."
 

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:

CHANCE HARBOR by Holly Robinson

 

I really enjoyed this book.  Family saga with secrets.

Terrific book as always.  Review up Tuesday of this week.

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

The books below 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 all of 2015 and 2016.

The "list" is a means of keeping me organized.

A visual display helps a lot for organization along with my Excel list. 

 


How was your reading week?

    1. Yes....I surprised myself that I was able to finish two books.

      That is a rare occurrence.

      Both books were very good.

  9. Happy Monday! I am so guilty of judging books by their covers and all of yours look great - especially Chance Harbor, Hundred Gifts, and Three Story House. They're all calling out to me! Lol...as if I need to add more to my TBR. :)

    Enjoy your books this week!

  16. You have lots of interesting books in your list, but the one that caught my eye is My Mother's Secret by J.L. Witterick. I enjoy World War II stories set in Poland.

    1. I like WWII also.

      I think I reviewed another book that was set in Poland. It is called Once We Were Brothers.

      Pam Jenoff writes good WWII books. Can't remember if they are set in Poland though.

  20. Family saga's are often some of my favourite reads, although I don't read them often enough. I find them to be some of the most layered plots and always with good character development.

    How pretty is the cover of The Hundred Gifts - I wish I could wrap like that. Haha!

    Happy Reading!
