It's Monday! What Are You Reading? - Jan 7

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.

Happy Monday! I hope you had a nice weekend. I took a rare time off so we could bring the kids to NYC. It was warmer than usual, so that made it an even nicer trip.

Over the weekend, I began reading the third book in Duffy Brown's Cycle Path Mysteries series, Tadem Demise. I haven't read the previous two books in the series, but it is set on Mackinac Island--which I would love to see one day--and is just as fun as her Consignment Shop Mysteries series that I've been reading since the very first book.

The first book I cracked open this year is one that I have been dying to read, but it will have to be read in between all my review commitments. Everything about this book captured me from the second I heard about it. It even opens with a passage from a chapter in Anne of Green Gables. 

These are the next two I must read this month. They are both by authors I already enjoy, so I have high hopes for them.

I also started this memoir that I am totally fascinated with.

When I make it through all these, I already know what's up next because I promised to read these ones.

That should keep me busy for a while. How about you? What are you reading? What's up next on your list?

You have some lovely books planned. I have the Marilla book to pick up at the library, which I'll do as soon as I have read my next library book. It does sound good and like you I am looking forward to it.

Those look like great books. I hope you enjoy them all. I love the cover of the Teddy Roosevelt book. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

Ooh Mackinac Island! I love it there! I'll have to check that series out- I always like it when a book series is set in a familiar place. :)

Hope you get to visit Mackinac at some point- it is beautiful there!

Thanks for visiting today.

Kathryn, you'll have to let me know your thoughts on Marilla. I have a feeling you'll get it read before I will.

Kathy, I love Jerome Charyn's work. This isn't a typical cover for him, but I have high hopes for the book.

Greg, I really appreciate your visit. I would love to make it to Mackinac one day.

Pussreboots, thanks for stopping by. Enjoyed your update.

I would love to read the Marilla book eventually! I just finished Anne of Green Gables - it was my first time reading it (after two unsuccessful starts). This time around I loved it! Now I want to read all the books about this family. :)

A book set in Mackinac sounds awesome! I'm a Michigander, so I love books set in my state. And Mackinac is such a pretty little island, and a great place to visit, when you get the chance one day. :)

Have a great week!

The last two books drew me in because of those covers. Have a good week.
