Hello everyone. We are back home from (surprisingly) rainy Florida! We flew down for my brother-in-laws' graduation and I had the chance to see where my hubby grew up. Some lessons learned from this trip: home is awfully nice after a few days away and plane rides are great for reading!

What are you reading this week?
Thanks for the reminder that plane rides are great for reading. I must prepare well for our upcoming trip to Chicago; two weeks to find some good possibilities.ReplyDelete
Here's my It's Monday!
That is a fun task! It was a good chance to read some books that had been lingering on my shelves for a while...:)Delete
That is some great reading indeed. Glad you put that time to good use.ReplyDelete
Hope you will enjoy your books this week!
Thanks so much Ciska! There isn't too much else to do on an airplane! :)Delete
Passing looks good. I am amazed by the number of books you read last week.ReplyDelete
I am lucky to get one done. :)
I bet Adriana's book was terrific.
THANKS for stopping by my blog earlier.
My It's Monday, What Are You Reading
Thanks Elizabeth! It helped to have some time to read on the plane! :)Delete
I've had PASSING on my radar for years, and it's one of those books I keep forgetting to nab. Thanks for the reminder! And glad you made it home safe!ReplyDelete
Thank you, Andi. It's a really short read so I hope you pick it up soon!Delete
What did you think if Passing? I read it in February and I really liked it; I especially liked how Nella Larsen writes. Such an interesting contrast between the two main characters, don't you think?ReplyDelete
Yes, it's a really interesting read. I can't believe it took me so long to get to it!Delete
Your books are new to me. Enjoy!ReplyDelete
You had a busy time reading! I'm glad you enjoyed your trip but its a shame about the rain. I've got to give Jennifer Weiner a try soon.ReplyDelete

Oh well. What can you do??Delete
I've enjoyed some Jennifer Weiner books more than others, but this one is about motherhood so I think it should hit some right notes for me!
A Circle of Quiet sounds intriguing. I didn't know Madeline L'Engle had published her journals. And The Supreme Macaroni Company! Adriana Trigiani is one of my favorites, and I'm looking forward to hearing what you have to say about her new book!ReplyDelete
I love Madeleine L'Engle and it's one of my goals to read all of her books. :)Delete
We like to travel but yes, it is always nice to get home afterward. Nothing like being home. Hope the rain didn't ruin your Florida trip. Looks like some great reads last week.ReplyDelete
No, the rain didn't ruin the trip although it did slightly confuse this Northerner. I thought it just rained for a bit in Florida and then the sun came back! :)Delete
