It's Monday again....

Good morning, friends. I hope you had a wonderful weekend. I had the opportunity to go to the Women of Faith conference in Philadelphia and it was amazing. Because of that and a busy week otherwise, I scrambled to finish my second book this week. The library wouldn't let me renew it again - nothing like a little pressure to help you finish a task!

Without further ado, here are the books I read this week:
Turn of Mind
By Alice LaPlante
By Emma Donoghue

This past week, I posted a regular Monday post, a Wednesdays with David, and reviews of The Boy in the Suitcase and Pigeon English

This week, I plan to read:

State of Wonder
By Ann Patchett

A Good Hard Look
By Ann Napolitano

Reviews of these books should be posted in the next week or so:



What are you reading this week? Please leave me a comment and let me know - I love to hear from you!


  1. I will have to look at Turn of Mind, the cover looks interesting (frightening how important a book cover is).

    Did you like Room? I struggled with a few things that kind of ruined the book for me.

    A friend mentioned that I must read The Tiger's Wife, I will be adding this to my list.

    Have a great week!

  2. Thanks Mari! I also wonder how much stock I should put in covers, but a great cover is hard to walk by. I did like Room, although it took me a while to get into it. What parts did you struggle with?

  3. Hi!
    All new books to me. Room and The Tiger's Wife look interesting. Thanks for stopping by my place. Have a great day!

    Just Books

  4. How was Women of Faith? Would love to attend one! Some good looking books you have going on! Will have to check them out....

  5. I've been in queue at the library for The Tiger's Wife since late Spring and my turn is close now.

    Every one of these appeals to me.
