  It’s Monday!  What Are You Reading, is where we gather to share what we have read this past week and what we plan to read this week.  It is a great way to network with other blogger's, see some wonderful blogs, and put new titles on your reading list.

So, what am I reading?

I'm still reading  Plans by Natalie Smothers and loved it.  Not a love story but kind of a love story, does that make sense? Now I need to work on the review. I'm hoping the author will do a book giveaway!


I'm also still working on  She-Rain: A Story of Hope . The writing is very southern and since I'm not used to it, I'm reading it a little slower. It may take me a couple of weeks to finish. So far I'm  enjoying it. I love southern lit. The way the author describes the scenery, it just sounds so breathtaking. I wanted to include a paragraph of what I mean by the descriptive scene:

"A narrow opening of the tree curtain, looking out onto folds of blue, draping further than you believe an eye can reach. I could never pass without pause to look at it.  One of the longest sights I figured ever to see.  Granny seized my hand, with a stare fixed on mountains spread at our feet.  Off where they layered into veils of cloud mist, stretched to the clearing sky and its early shaving of what would rise as an almost full moon.  Its pewter light strong through the red remains of the rainstorm nearly spent."  


I love reading books with such vivid descriptions . It sounds so wonderful.


Up next:

The Lotus Eaters: A Novel. Looking forward to this one.

That's my plan for now!  What are your reading plans?

The author of She-Rain is local for me - he's on one of our news channels.

I love such vivid descriptions! I'm loving Laini Taylor because her descriptions are so vivid and she uses such beautiful words. Not sure it's your style or not, but I'm loving her!
And I love southern lit!

Southern lit is actually something that I'm not drawn to naturally, but I do have a few favorites. Fried Green Tomatoes comes to mind first and foremost. I've heard good things about She-Rain though.

I love the descriptive sentences that seem to show you the scene!

I'm late getting around...we had thunder and lightning yesterday and last night, so I turned off the computer early.
