Its Monday, What Are You Reading .....

Hosted by Sheila over at One Persons Journey Through A World of Books and this is what she has to say about it:


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 bloggers, see some wonderful blogs, and put new titles on your reading list.
I love being a part of this and I hope you do too!  As part of this weekly meme I love to encourage you all to go and visit the others participating in this meme.  I offer a weekly contest for those who visit 10 or more of the Monday Meme participants and leave a comment.  You receive one entry for every 10 comments, just come back here and tell me how many in the comment area.




Currently Reading:  Blood Harvest by S. J. Bolton - There's something about suspenseful, eerie, scary books set in England.

Up Next:  Pray For Silence by Linda Castillo - I read her previous Kate Burkholder, Sworn to Silence.
I love the whole Amish murder mystery thing.

How to Be An American Housewife by Margaret Dilloway- This is a Library Thing win.  Looking forward to reading this! From www.margaretdilloway.com :

HOW TO BE AN AMERICAN HOUSEWIFE is about the strong pull of tradition, and the lure and cost of breaking free of tradition. Set in California and Japan, it tells the story of Shoko, a Japanese woman who married an American GI as a way of improving her and her family’s fortunes, moved with him to the States, and tried to learn how to be a proper American housewife; and her grown daughter Sue, who finds her own life as an American housewife is not at all what her mother would have wanted for her, or even what Sue had hoped for herself. When Shoko’s illness prevents her from making a long-awaited trip to Japan to be reunited with her brother, she asks Sue to go in her place, and the trip changes both women’s lives in unexpected ways. With beautifully delineated characters and unique entertaining glimpses into Japanese and American family life and aspirations, this is also a moving mother and daughter story. Interspersed with quotations from Shoko’s guide to being an American housewife, this is a warm and engaging novel full of surprising insight.


I'd love to hear what about your reading week!

Your blog design has changed again. It's beautiful!

I just finished reading Outlander, and will begin a new book by Deepak Chopra very soon.
