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!
I am right in the middle of this book by Karen White--The House on Tradd Street.
It would be considered "Women's Fiction" ...and I mention this for a couple of reasons.
One is that I steered away from the tag "Women's Fiction" for years, but in the past 18 months or so, I've read a bit and realized that I was really enjoying it. (That and Stephen King)
The storyline is usually fast-paced and light and entertaining. WF can be in done in a variety of themes too---a mystery, romance, suspense, general fiction. They can be a bit of comic relief or take on a more serious tone, but
I enjoy it which brings me to the 2nd thing....
Kathryn at Book Date is hosting a 2016 Women's Fiction Challenge and I'm considering joining up.
In fact.....consider this my commitment post as well!

I am going to commit to
In other news, two of my grandchildren are here for the week and last night we started this book...
LOVE this book and they do too! Although I am having to explain many things, such as why a 10-year old boy can go off to school with a popgun and wooden dagger. It's not an easy thing to do, but beyond a couple of things like that they are loving it and while I think it's a great book also, I love the most that they cuddle up by my side and lay their heads against my shoulder and listen.
And that's my reading week!
I am counting down the days until I will start my---first book of the year!
Oh...and here is the button for the Women's Fiction Reading Challenge.
