It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?? – 10/24/11 Edition


It’s Monday! What Are you Reading? is hosted by Shelia of Book Journey. It is a chance to share what you have read and what you plan on reading in the upcoming week. I enjoy seeing what everyone’s reading plans for the week. I always find some titles that I just *had to add to my TBR list.

Last week looked like this for me:

Finished:  That Day In September – Artie Van Why (review)

Started the Book:  Mennonite in a Little Black Dress – Rhoda Janzen – about 1/2 done

Started the Audio Book:   Empire Falls – Richard Russo – about 1/2 done

Reviews Posted :

That Day In September  -  Artie Van Why

Heaven is For Real – Todd Burpo

My Plans for this week:

Mennonite in a Little Black Dress by Rhoda Janzen. This is the book selection for November for my book group, “Books & Babble”.  Hope to finish this book this week. 

Empire Falls by Richard Russo is currently loading on my Zune and I hope to finish this book this week.


The Night Strangers by Chris Bohjalian – this book was mentioned as a good read for October so I downloaded it from
I have not read scary books in a long time. I seem to be more effected by them as an adult than when I was a teen.

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs is also downloaded from Audible waiting for me! The cover and title of this book totally creep me out. Can I handle two creepy books in one month???

A Redbird Christmas by Fannie Flagg is the November selection for my book group, “Wine, Women and Words”. Should be a nice book after reading Scary Book for October.

These are my reading plans for the week. What are you reading plans for the week??? Join in with Shelia at Book Journey and share your reading plans for the week!!

Happy Reading!!


  1. Some great reading ahead of you this week! I love Fannie Flagg's books and I've been wanting to read Memonite in a Little Black Dress.

  2. I have Mennonite in a Little Black Dress and Miss Peregrine's School for Peculiar Children on my TBR.

    I had a busy week of reading. My goodness. I'm shocked at how many I finished. Come see what I read.

  3. Mennonite in a Little Black Dress and Empire Falls look like great reads - have a great week.

  4. Wow, great books! The Night Strangers is one I want to read too, and Fannie Flagg's book I just haven't been able to get hold of - our library (here in the Netherlands) doesn't have it and can't order it. So, that's a pity.

    Hope you enjoy your books!

  5. I've been wanting to read the Mennonite book too. I have Miss Peregrine's checked out from the library but haven't started it yet.

  6. Some great sounding books that I may add to my wishlist! Miss Peregrine's looks spooky but fascinating.
