it's monday! what are you reading? (aug. 29)



It’s Monday, what are you reading? is hosted by Sheila over at Book Journey.

This was a good productive weekend for reading. I finished 2 books, Strawberry Shortcake Murder by Joanne Fluke and Demonglass by Rachel Hawkins. They were very different (from each other), but both very good.

I am still working on The Help on audio by Kathryn Stockett. I think I just passed the Chapter 21 mark. I am going to guess I am about ¾ of the way through. It is still so good. DH even listened to a couple of chapters with me last night, and he said he enjoyed what he heard.

My next paper read I am starting today is Something Borrowed by Emily Giffin. This is one of my book-to-movie books for the summer. I haven’t picked a new read for my kindle yet. Any suggestions?

That is about all for me, how was your reading weekend?

If you want to play too, go to Sheila’s page and leave your link there, but also please let me know so I can come visit. Thx =D

Just my two cents, but I thought Something Borrowed was a rare case of the movie being actually better than the book!

Here's my post for this week: It's Monday! What Are You Reading?! And only two days are left to sign up for the Readerbuzz August Giveaway! I always follow back.

Thanks for stopping by my blog! I read and saw the movie of Something Borrowed. They were not very similar to each other.
