It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

It's Monday! What are you reading this week? is a weekly event to share what we read last week, what we are currently reading and what books we plan to read this week.

Books read last week:
  • Privilege by Kate Brian
  • 50 Harbor Street by Debbie Macomber (audio book)
Audio book currently listening to:

Yesterday I started listening to 6 Rainier Drive by Debbie Macomber. As soon as the book started, I realized the narrator is not the same from the previous five audio books. I just couldn't get into it. So, I decided to keep going (you know, stay open) and after 20 minutes I stopped listening. The characters' voices were not the same and I did not feel as connected as I did with the previous audio books. Listening to the previous audio books, I could immediately tell each character without identifying details given.

I want to continue with the series, so I'm debating to a) read the book or b) continue with the audio book. I would like to complete the first eight book prior to book nine's release in September. As of now, I'm currently not listening to anything.

Currently reading:
  • Dune Road by Jane Green
Up Next:

I'm still working on my reading schedule. I've come to realize that I should turn in several library books unread so I can read my own books and those books I pulled aside for my "beachy" reads. Here's what I've decided on so far (in no particular order):

  • City Dog by Alison Pace
  • Red Hot Lies by Laura Caldwell
  • Dial Emmy for Murder by Eileen Davis
  • The Late, Lamented Molly Marx by Sally Koslow
  • Paradise Lost by Kate Brian
  • Beautiful Disaster by Kate Brian
Will I finish the above by next week? Um, no. . . These are six books that I just want to finish before the end of the month.

What are you reading this week?


  1. I really don't get that. I like for the narrator to stay the same throughout a series. I wonder why publishers don't contract them to read the entire series. This same thing happened with the Plum series. I thought I would scream.

  2. Hi Shon,

    I noticed that one of your upcoming reads is The Late, Lamented Molly Marx. I run an online book club through my blog, Barney's Book Blog, and that is our selection for this month. If you have a chance to read the book, we would love for you to join in on the discussion on July 27. Author Sally Koslow will be stopping by throughout the day to comment and answer questions, so please do join us! For more info, go to:
