It's Monday and we are home again

Hello friends! How are you doing?

It's been two weeks since I did one of these posts. In the meantime, I went on a week-long cruise to the Bahamas and Disney World and then I participated in an abridged Readathon this past Saturday.

Vacation time plus Readathon means that I've gotten a lot of reading done lately. Here are the books I've read:

           Commonwealth    Sing for Your Life: A Story of Race, Music, and Family  Behold the Dreamers                           
           The Firebird (Slains, #2)   Today Will Be Different   Public Library and Other Stories 
                          Fables, Volume 1: Legends in Exile    Let's Pretend This Never Happened: A Mostly True Memoir 

Now I'm planning to read Alice Hoffman's new novel Faithful and then catch up on the latest edition of Saga if it arrives at my library in the next few days.

What are you reading this week?



  1. Such a fun trip for your family, and a lovely photo! We had passes to Disney World when we lived in FL and the kids were young, but haven't been in ages.

    I read Faithful and while it is classic Hoffman and wonderful, it is also a bit sad. I haven't read the others, but am interested in the Maria Semple, and for nonfiction, Sing For Your Life intrigues. Enjoy the week!

  2. Disneyworld is one of my dream vacations - my parents actually went when they were still childless, but never went back with me! I did manage to get to Disneyland with friends when we were in our early twenties, and it was still pretty darn magical. :D

  3. I hope you enjoyed Disney World, it is on my wishlist to take my family one day! What a great setting to get some reading done.

    I am keen to get in Commonwealth and I also love Susanna Kearsley. The rest of your book haul looks fantastic.

    Have a lovely week!

  5. Lots of great titles read... Now to write the reviews :-P

    I hope you and your family had a wonderful holiday, Lindsey. A cruise and Disneyworld tagged on - that's what you call a dream holiday right there!

    Have a great week, and happy reading!

  6. Looks like you had a good reading week! Here is my It's Monday! What are you reading?:

  7. Wow, sounds like a wonderful vacation! And so many amazing books! I'd like to read all of those - I love the extra reading time on vacation, with none of the usual daily obligations.

    Enjoy your books this week & welcome home!
