It's Monday

It's Monday, What are you Reading is a fun weekly meme hosted by Sheila from Book Journey, where we share what we have read, are reading and what we hope to read.

I don't know about you, but I love sharing the books I am reading, so this is a great way for me to do just that!

This past week for me:

 I'm so excited... I am just about done with "IT" by Stephen King.  I will be doing a blog post about it for the  Stephen King Challenge later on in the week.  As I said before, I had forgotten how  much I love Stephen King.   As soon as I'm done with this post, I'm off to finish up this book.

I finished  "Explosive Eighteen" by Janet Evonovich.  Loved it.  But I love the Stephanie Plumb series anyway.  It's just an easy, fun, quick read.

And I just started  "A  Grown Up Kind of  Pretty" on audio.  I am  love, Love, LOVING it.

Goodreads says:
A GROWN-UP KIND OF PRETTY is a powerful saga of three generations of women, plagued by hardships and torn by a devastating secret, yet inextricably joined by the bonds of family. Fifteen-year-old Mosey Slocumb-spirited, sassy, and on the cusp of womanhood-is shaken when a small grave is unearthed in the backyard, and determined to figure out why it's there. Liza, her stroke-ravaged mother, is haunted by choices she made as a teenager. But it is Jenny, Mosey's strong and big-hearted grandmother, whose maternal love braids together the strands of the women's shared past--and who will stop at nothing to defend their future.

That's it for me this past week.  Now...I'm off to finish IT.
What are YOU reading?

I don't think I'd be able to read It- too scary! But A Grown Up Kind of Pretty looks and sounds good! xx

Tina said...

Good books. I have so many stacked up here. I am in the middle of The Untied States of Arugula and started Waiting (a restaurant book).

The Joshilyn Jackson is on my wish list. Hope you enjoy your week.

Love the quote in your header, which is tempting, by the way!

Ooo good picks! Look forward to your review of 'It'- I haven't read much Stephen King (shamefully!)

I loved 11/22/63 so I've been toying with trying another of King's books. I think A Grown-Up Kind of Pretty is Jackson's best book!

I still haven't read any Stephen King. I am on the waiting list for 11/22/63, but it's going to be a long time until it's my turn! I am not much for scary stories, although I think he's one of those authors I need to read sooner or later.
Happy Reading!

I'm listening to A Grown-Up Kind of Pretty, too! I've "read" all her books on audio, and I can't imagine missing out on her great voice and narration which adds so much to the experience. Glad to hear you're loving it as well!

Kristin said...

I have A Grown-Up Kind of Pretty on my tbr list - and have been thinking about getting it on audio. Glad you are enjoying it.

Hope you have a great week!

Ho! I remember watching IT with our kids when they were teens. Scary!
I'm still only on #4 of Plum... maybe I'll get back to the series someday.
Enjoy your week. :-)
