It’s Monday! What are you Reading?

This is a weekly meme now hosted by Kathryn @ Book Date. If you aren’t already, I encourage you to join in on the fun!


Happy Monday! It was a great weekend, although it went too fast, as usual .The highlight was Sunnie’s dance recital. She did so great! This week is going to be busy. Sunnie has Safetyvillage every evening for a few hours, and Tuesday night we’re going to look at houses. We are hoping to move soon! Fingers crossed we find a good one.



This book! It blew me away. I immediately bought every Amy Harmon book I didn’t already own.



I’ve been in a bit of a reading funk, and haven’t had any desire to pick up a book the past few days. I started this one, but I’m not too far.

I don’t know. I have a lot of books I want to read, but my mood is all over the place these days. These are the few currently calling to me.

What are you reading this week?

    Ha. So you are on an Amy Harmon binge, huh? 🙂 I downloaded her Bird and the Sword this weekend and have been enjoying it so far. Surprising, really. Considering it’s fantasy.

    Happy reading, Brandie!

    That’s great about Sunnie’s recital 🙂 Good luck looking at houses! As for reading, I’m sure that something will catch your interest soon enough – I just think there are so many good books out that its hard to just choose which one to start with. Hope you have a great week!!

    I love finding a new-to-me author and discovering that I must read all of her books! I will check out Amy Harmon, as Making Faces and A Different Blue look very tempting.

    I have We’re All Damaged, I loved The Girls in the Garden, and Mystic Summer is on my list. I loved The Lake Season by that author.

      I never got around to reading The Lake Season, even though everyone said it was good. I think I’m starting The Girls in the Garden next! Making Faces is definitely worth adding to your list!

    Sigh…. looking at houses sounds so exciting! Sadly the average price of a detached house in my city is nearing $2million….hurray for living in one of the most expensive cities in the world….!

    The Girls in the Garden sounds good; I have Mystic Summer for review, too so I hope it’s great! I have had Making Faces on my kindle forever so I need to read it!

  6. Melinda says:

    Ah yes, the dreaded reading slump! I think we’ve all been there and they are no fun. I hope you find something that catches your interest soon!

    Oh thinking of moving house! Big job but kinda exciting. Mystic Summer is sorta a sweet slow romance, at 88% and still don’t know which guy she is going to choose, although I think I know. I want to read Lisa Jewell’s book but haven’t read anything of hers yet.

    The “history lessons” in A Different Blue were the only thing I didn’t care for, but keep going. It’s so good. I would love to read Mystic Summer, but my library still hasn’t stocked it. I might just have to buy it. I also want to read another Lisa Jewell book. I liked what I read of her last year. I also have We’re All Damaged but have no idea when I’ll get to read it. It looks like you have a really good reading week planned. Enjoy!

    Yay The Girls in the Garden! Good luck house shopping! I was going to buy my first house a couple summers ago, but it ended up falling through and it kind of turned me off to the whole idea. Are you looking to stay in the same general area?

    • Brandie says:

      Moving is such a pain, I’m not really looking forward to it. But we want Sunnie to go to Dalton schools. So we’re looking to move into that district. Seeing two houses in Dalton tomorrow night. I’m ready to get out of Massillon but the thought of packing and moving gives me anxiety. Lol.

      • stephaniesbookreviews says:

        Yeah, moving is the worst! But it’s usually worth it. The last time I moved I hired movers for the first time (instead of talking people into helping me load a U-Haul) and it definitely helped with the stress level. I hope you find something you like!

    That’s quite a testament to Amy Harmon’s writing – I’ll definitely have to check out her works.

    I totally know what you mean regarding mood reading at the moment… I have a bookmark in far too many books right now!

    Ah, I’m sure Sunnie’s dance recital was wonderful. She looked beautiful and the family picture you shared is lovely (via Instagram).

    Happy reading!
