It's Monday! What Are You Reading? and Mailbox Monday - May 23

 Welcome to It's Monday! What Are You Reading? and Mailbox Monday. 

 


It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is a place to meet up and share what you have been, are and about to be reading over the week. It's a great post to organize yourself. It's an opportunity to visit and comment, and er... add to that ever growing TBR pile! So welcome in everyone. This meme started with J Kaye's Blog and then was taken up by Sheila from Book Journey. Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn at the Book Date.  

Here we are back to Monday. Sorry I am so slow in getting back to all your blogs to reciprocate comments from last week. In addition to the Lil' Princess' graduation coming up on Saturday, I am up against a couple of deadlines. I still have one manuscript to edit, and by Wednesday I need to have all my post-licensing education for North Carolina completed. I took a little break to enjoy a Red Sox game, but I had my laptop with me to listen to lessons on the way to Boston and on the way home.



It was an amazing game and we had great seats. The game went into an extra inning, and the Red Sox were gipped scoring a run at home plate. Moments later, Franchy Cordero hit a walk-off grand slam that won the game. They swept the series against the Mariners. 

As far as reading goes, it is almost non-existent. My review on this one is coming. 


A First Chapter Review of this one is coming on Thursday.


I am reading these books now.








These are next:

Maybe by the time vacation rolls around I will get to these:










Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came in their mailbox during the last week. Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists.

This one arrived in the middle of the week from one of my favorite authors. I am happy to be reading a new book in a series I love.


I also have a NetGalley copy of this book to read.


That's it from me. Hope you have a wonderful week. Wish me luck in getting everything done in time.

Welcome back to Monday. My plans of reading and posting my review of The Greatest Salesman in the World: Part 2, did not come to fruition, but for good reason. I finished editing one manuscript for a client and have 50 pages left to go on the next one. In addition, I came back from National Harbor, MD to a new listing and am meeting with another potential new client this week. The most exciting news of the week, however, was senior prom. I spent most of Friday with the Lil' Princess, driving her to her hair and make up appointment and visiting with the other parents at the school barbeque where we took photos before the kids went off to the prom site. 








So from a reading perspective, other than my daily devotional, it looks the same as last week. 

My review on this one is coming. 


I am reading these books now.






I also sneak this one in when I can.

Nothing new this week, but that's good considering how little reading I am doing right now.

How was your reading week? Did you come across any great reads?

Happy Monday! I hope all you moms were treated to a nice day on Sunday. We had a wonderful weekend. After flying home from Maryland late Friday, I took a day off on Saturday. Then yesterday, we visited my mother-in-law. 

Here are a few photos from my trip. I have to admit, I had a great view in National Harbor.







Thanks to boring plane rides, I polished off this one. Look for my review this week. Loved it just as much as the first book. 



I am reading this book now.

While roaming around, I stumbled upon Mahogany Books. What a neat place to visit. I picked up this book while there.


I also grabbed the NetGalley format of Charlotte Hubbard's upcoming release.


How was your reading week? Did you pick up any new books? Did you grab one that has been sitting in your TBR pile for too long?
