It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?


It’s Monday! What are you Reading? is a meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journey. It is a great way to recap what you read and/or reviewed the previous week and to plan out your reading and reviews for the upcoming week. It’s also a great chance to see what others are reading right now…who knows, you might discover that next “must read” book!

Reviews Posted Last Week:
Wedding At Cardwell Ranch by B.J. Daniels

What I Read Last Week:

I got a lot of reading done last week. First off I finished Wedding At Cardwell Ranch. I had high hopes for this book but it just didn’t stand up to them, it was okay but lacked a lot of what I have come to like about the series. Click on the link above to read my full review.




The next book I read was The Swiss Family Robinson. This is a book I have wanted to read for a while but only now got around to it. I really enjoyed this one and really the only downside to it was how short the book was. I’ll be posting a review of the book and movie later this week.



Next I read the entire Unicorns of Balinor series. I read the first three books last year but had to stop because I didn’t have the rest. I recently found the remaining five books so was able to read the full series including re-reading the first three books. This was a good little series, though I would have enjoyed it more had I read them when I was younger. I may do a review on the series in the future.



Last, I ended up reading The Phantom Tollbooth. I read this book as a kid and absolutely loved it. I decided to re-read it because it has been many years since I last read this book and wanted to enjoy it again. I don’t think I will ever get tired of this book.



What I Plan To Read This Week:

This week I am hoping to read a bunch of is Mirror Sight. I have been looking forward to this book for a few years now, since it takes 3-4 years for each sequel to come out in the series, and so I need to make time to read it since it’s been on my shelf for a couple months now. It’s a pretty think book so not sure if I will get it all done in one week.



I will also be picking away at The Backyard Homestead. This is not a book I plan to read in one sitting, but I will at least be starting it this week. I plan to read it whenever I have the time to sit down and get through a few pages or whenever I feel like reading on the subject.

On top of these I will also likely be reading a few shorter books to help get my book count up for the year as well as to get a lot of extra reading done for the Wicked Wildfire Read-A-Thon that ends on Thursday.

What have you read recently? Were they as good as you had hoped or just alright? What books do you plan to read this week?

  1. I read The Phantom Tollbooth with my little guy a while back. We both had a blast. I can’t decide if Juster wrote it for kids or the grownups reading to them! 🙂

    • I can’t wait to share The Phantom Tollbooth with my son, that’s half the reason I bought it last year. I think he writes it for everyone, but obviously it has a bigger impact on kids.
      Thanks for stopping by. Have a great reading week.
