It’s that happy time again, when I get to hang out with all the fun readers at It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? Of course, this link up is the brainchild of Sheila at Book Journey. Be sure to check out some of the other blogs when you’re finished here and leave a comment or two. I’ll be there as soon as I finish here!
I started out the week with The Gilly Salt Sisters by Tiffany Baker.
I really enjoyed this book. The characters were richly drawn and in my head I was involved with their lives. As I read, I kept giving them advise, telling them to do or not do something. I love a book with a touch of magic in it. Here you’re never really sure if there’s magic but it makes it more enjoyable to think there is. Well worth the read, give it a try.
I jumped into The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis the second installment of the Chronicles of Narnia, although Goodreads calls it the first.
I’m enjoying the series. I’ve said this about other books, I don’t know how I missed reading these books all these years. Lewis weaves his characters in such a way that you either love them or hate them, as is appropriate to the story. I didn’t realize when I read the first book, The Magician’s Nephew, but I believe it was true with that book as well. I felt like he was there telling me the story rather than I was reading it. Such fun…I have five to go now. I’ll probably feel sad when I’m finished the series.
I’m enjoying my current read, Think Twice by Lisa Scottoline.
I’ve said before that I had no idea Scottoline had written so many books in general and this one is number thirteen in the Rosato & Associates series. I know I’ve missed a few in the series. I’ve been reading them mostly (as Usual!) from Goodwill and thrift store finds. A few months ago, I found four of them and I’ve been able to read at least this group in order which has been helpful to get a real feel for the series. Think Twice has really captured my interest. In fact, I’d like nothing better than to spend this rainy day reading. We’ll have to see how that works out!
Hoping that the weather improves because I do have some outdoor things I need to accomplish. Why does it always rain on the day I want to go grocery shopping?! Just my luck.
Don’t forget to check out all of the blogs linking up over at Book Journey. I get the best suggestions over there!
Happy Monday! What ARE you reading?
