It's Monday! What are You reading?




It's been a couple of weeks since I participated. The last 2 weeks have been busy with school, so not as much reading as I did over the summer.

With school though, I have read all the books that I described here. These books were enjoyed by all the children (and myself!)

What I did read though was excellent:

"When God was a Rabbit" by Sarah Winman

I was surprised by this but did enjoy it.



"The Castaways" by Elin Hilderbrand

I finally finished this. I enjoy her books  - more of a light read, but it did take me most of the summer to finish - too many other good books to read.

By far, the best book in a while was:
"The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry" by Rachel Joyce

I admit I had tears at times but I LOVED it. A gentle but powerful book. Read it!


I have just started "The Beautiful Mystery" by Louise Penny

This is the newest book in the Inspector Gamache series and I am thoroughly enjoying it.( Even read til 12:30 last night as I could not sleep.)

I have so many books started but interrupted by books bought or recommended - will eventually get back to them.  Not sure what I will read after this one.

Be sure to check here and here for some great reads.

Your adult books look interesting Beverley, but you're right, there is so little time. And I re-read your 10 for 10 post-so many great pic bks for the beginning of school there. Nice to see again. Aug. 10th seems a long time ago.

I'm waiting for a copy of Harold Fry to come in for me at my local library :) I can't wait! I'm not a patient girl, lol

Have a great week of reading!

I read When God was a Rabbit early in the year and found it very compelling
