It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

Sheila, of One Persons Journey Through a World of Books, is the host of It's Monday! What Are You Reading? This 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 (from last two weeks):

  • Spoon by Amy Krouse Rosenthal
    Summary:  Spooton is jealous of Fork and Knife for all the great things they can do.  Spoon's mother reminds him there are wonderful things he can do that the others cannot.  (Children's Picture Book)
  • Chopsticks by Amy Krouse Rosenthal
    Summary:  Chopsticks are always together and work well with each other.  Until one of the Chopsticks breaks and forces the other to do things alone.  (Children's Picture Book)
  • Spin by Catherine McKenzie Summary:  Kate is still hungover from the night before when she interviews for her dream job.  Needless to say she doesn't get the job.  Days later the company calls her with a proposition:  go to rehab and get the scoop on a famous celebrity and they will hire her for the position.  
  • Dancing on Broken Glass by Ka HancockSummary: An emotional read about a husband's mental illness and a wife's family history of cancer.  I highly recommend it.  My review can be read here.
  • A Ball for Daisy by Chris RaschkaSummary: A wordless picture book about a dog and her ball.
I'm reading:
  • Private:  #1 Suspect by James Patterson and Maxine Paetro
  • Daddy's Girl by Lisa Scottoline (audiobook)
To read:
  • 150 Pounds by Kate Rockland
  • The Underside of Joy by Sere Prince Halverson

What are you reading this week?


  1. I already read Private: #1 Suspect and really enjoyed it. Have you read the others in the series? I was able to get my hands on Private London which was only published in the UK (thanks to my brother living there!).

    I've heard a lot of good things about Lisa Scottoline but have yet to pick up any of her books. Which would you recommend starting with?

    1. My first book was Everywhere That Mary Went. It's actually the first in a series with recurring characters. I think that will be a good place to start.

  2. Love the tiltes of the childrens books: Sppon, Chopsticks. I read and enjoyed SPIN.

  3. Dancing on Broken Glass sounds good, going to read review.

  4. I won Dancing on Broken Glass last week. I can't wait to read it!!

    Have an awesome week!!

    1. YAY! I hope you enjoy it. It's a fantastic read!

  5. Oh wow, you have been busy. I haven't read any of these, though I see that Stay Close is on your book shelf, I'm hoping to get to that one next week, if not late this week.

    My Wrapup

  6. :) Everyone is really liking the Patterson book - what do you think? I haven't ever read them, but they look good.

    Happy reading this week!
