I hope you had a great reading week.

Post the books completed last week, the books you are currently reading, and the books you hope to finish 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. I am about 60 pages into Platinum Doll. It is ok. It is about Jean Harlow.

      Thanks for stopping, Laurel.

      I am looking forward to Swans.

  5. You are so organized!! I am so impressed. My reading process usually involves browsing the shelves at my workplace until I see a pretty cover, or seeing a book on another blog and being inspired. I usually scribble a few notes in a journal as I read so I can remember enough to write a blog post, but that's about the limit of my organizational skills. I commend you! :)

  6. Today I am finishing The Happy Marriage by Tahar Ben Jelloun. He is a Moroccan author and the book is translated from the French. (One of my reading goals this year is to read more translated lit.) Then I am going on a trip for 5 days and will read books I have languishing on my iPad.

    1. Love the iPad for trips. I just don't like electronic reading, but it is better than lugging books around. :)

      Thanks for stopping, Judy.

  9. You have a great line-up planned. I'm currently reading The Drum Within by James R. Scarantino. Too early yet to tell what I'll think of the story. :)

  10. The debut novel sounds great, look forward to your review when it posts. Well organised!

    1. It was good. It has some paranormal in it, but it wasn't bad. I normally do not read paranormal.

      It was more history and women's fiction than the paranormal.

      Thanks for the comment about my organization, Kathryn.

      Thanks for stopping.
