It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? hosted at Book Journey
The Sunday Post

It's Monday!  What Are You Reading? is hosted by Sheila at Book Journey. She's taking a bit of personal leave so I'm also linking to Kimberly at Caffeinated Book Reviewer.

So yesterday was my birthday. Number 37. Where on earth does the time go? I swear it feels like I just graduated from college a couple of weeks ago! My husband and I drove to Hilton Head Island in South Carolina for the weekend and chilled on the beach, biked around, ate way too much, and read. In other words, it was a perfect weekend.

Review: Heart's Blood by Juliet Marillier--5 Stars

Review: All Over but the Shoutin' by Rick Bragg--4.5 Stars

How to Tell Toledo from the Night Sky by Lydia Netzer, read by Joshilyn Jackson

Currently Reading:
Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige

Fairest by Marissa Meyer, read by Rebecca Soler

Undaunted Courage: Meriwether Lewis, Thomas Jefferson, and the Opening of the American West by Stephen E. Ambrose--I'm almost done!

Up Next:
I honestly don't know. I should finish both Undaunted Courage and Dorothy Must Die this week but I'm not sure what I'll be in the mood for after that. I was supposed to start listening to Summer Knight by Jim Butcher last week but it was finally my turn for Fairest, so Butcher's book got postponed. I've been waiting several months for Fairest.

What are you reading this week?

I have an affiliate relationship with Malaprop's, my local independent bookstore located in beautiful downtown Asheville, NC; and Better World Books. I will receive a small commission at no cost to you if you purchase books through links on my site. My opinions are completely my own.


  1. Happy birthday! I turn 37 next month. It seems like time has been flying since I turned 20. I'd love to be in my 20s again but I'm trying to remind myself that I'm still youngish :)

    I hope you like Fairest. It's definitely different from the other books but it gives interesting insight on Levana and Winter.

    1. Thank you! I was standing in a hallway at work today and an older lady was trying to read something. She said, "I need some young eyes to look at this," looked my way, looked the other way and walked over to the barely-20-year-old! My pride stung a bit but I had to laugh! I guess she wasn't looking for youngish eyes!

  2. Hqppy birthday! Sounds like you had a great weekend.

  3. 37 is young! You were born not long after I graduated from high school. Enjoy your birthday weekend and your books.

  4. Happy Birthday! I had a tough time leaving my 30's behind (I'm 42 ) time just goes so fast!

    Have a great week!

    1. Thank you! I've already warned my husband that I may fall apart when 40 rolls around. 30 went down easy but 40 looks a lot different!

  5. Happy birthday! It sounds like a lovely get-away. Enjoy your new books...I am curious about Dorothy Must Die.



Thanks for taking the time to comment! Have a great day!
