It's Monday! What are you reading?


This meme is hosted by Sheila at Book Journey

Books read last week: How did I only finish one book this week? I thought I'd have tons of free time this weekend, but it was not meant to be...
Books currently reading:
  • Chasing Windmills by Catherine Ryan Hyde
  • Fade to Blue by Bill Moody (Suspense/Mystery Challenge)--on my computer so I am having issues getting around to reading it
Books waiting in the wings:
  • A Thousand Sisters by Lisa Shannon
  • Disobedience by Jane Hamilton (for my Book Group)
Give Away: International, closes at 5:00pm (Pacific Time) on Saturday, April 9, 2011
Comments: I have been reading a lot lately about how annoyed commenters get with having to type in the word verification so I turned it off. It took all of 12 hours before I got spam. So, the verification is back on.

Secret Daughter is one of my favorite books and I'm glad you loved it too!

I haven't heard of Chasing Windmills or Fade to Blue but I hope you are enjoying them and that you have a great week!

I've only just started the Henrietta Lacks book. I've heard it's very good.

Khadija--I did enjoy Henrietta Lacks and all its commentary on poverty, ignorance, and medicine

Christina--Chasing Windmills is by the same author as Jumpstart the World, which I really liked a lot

Alyce--Enjoy Henrietta! I look forward to seeing what you think of it

Angie said...

The Immortal Life...has been on my radar for a while now. I might have to request it from my library.

Mari said...

I keep seeing A Thousand Sisters on blogs... this inspires me. I loved this book. It's dark but true. An important story, and about running!

Will need to read The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, I see this everywhere and everyone loves it.

Have a wonderful week!

I love Jane Hamilton's books...it's been awhile since I read Disobedience, but I recall enjoying it a lot.

Hope you have a great week.

I haven't heard of any of those books but will be looking them up on amazon to see which ones take me fancy and look foward to your reviews :D

Have a great reading week and please feel free to stop by my page and let me know what you think! :D:D

Angie--Immortal Life is definitely worth requesting from your library

Mari--You are one of the first that I've heard has read A Thousand Sisters; I am really looking forward to reading it

Laurel-Rain--My co-worker is going to lend me her copy of Disobedience so I can get reading it in time for my book group meeting

Pussreboots and Blogabook--I'll go check out your blogs now

Sheila--Secret Daughter was WONDERFUL (and you'll have to wait for the review for the details)

Aths said...

I sooooo want to read Secret Daughter! My library doesn't even have it. I think I'm going to buy it!

Helen's Book Blog said...

Aths--I'd offer you my copy, but I am hoping my book group will read it. It is well worth the money!

Amused said...

Hey if you have spam you gotta do it! Looking forward to your review of Secret Daughters!

Amused--I so wish I could post the review now since I loved the book so much
