It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is a weekly post to share what you recently finished reading, what you’re currently reading, and what you plan on reading next. This is a terrific meme that allows you to meet fellow bookworms and find new books to add to your ever-growing reading wish list.
This weekly post is hosted by Kathryn at Bookdate.
Happy Monday to you!
This past weekend we had our annual library used book sale. The grand total of Fiction and Non-Fiction books that were donated for the sale was over 270,000, up from 200,000 last year. Wow…can you believe it?! I feel incredibly blessed to have such a wonderful library system. Yesterday was bag day, fill a paper bag with as many books as you can for $5. I was extremely delighted to find several more books to add to my collection. I will post pics of those books in my Monthly Wrap-Up later this week.
*I am looking for some recommendations from my book-loving friends. I signed up for the 30-day free trial of Audible. I chose one book (Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine) and have one more coming to me. I don’t listen to a lot of audio books, so I’m reaching out to you for your audio expertise.
What I Read Last Week…
All the Wicked Girls by Chris Whitaker – I found the atmosphere in this mystery to be fantastic! Chris Whitaker did an excellent job taking us to the southern town of Grace, Alabama. (my full review)
The Life She Was Given by Ellen Marie Wiseman – I’m about 50% in and am enjoying this historical fiction book. It hooked me right from the start, with any luck I will finish it today.
Dead Woman Walking by Sharon Bolton
I’m looking forward to my first Sharon Bolton book!
Just before dawn in the hills near the Scottish border, a man murders a young woman. At the same time, a hot-air balloon crashes out of the sky. There’s just one survivor.
She’s seen the killer’s face – but he’s also seen hers. And he won’t rest until he’s eliminated the only witness to his crime.
Alone, scared, trusting no one, she’s running to where she feels safe – but it could be the most dangerous place of all.
Have you read any of these? What are you reading this week? Do you have any audio-book recommendations?
