It's Monday! What are you reading? 10-19-2009

What are you reading on Mondays? is hosted by J. Kaye at J. Kaye's Book Blog. This is my first time doing this event, even though I think about it every Monday! I have decided it is time to start giving a little more effort to some of my posts! If you would like to participate, please leave your link with Mr. Linky at J.Kaye's blog - but you can also leave me a comment - I would love to know what you are reading!

I am currently reading 3 books that I am having a heck of a time finishing! None of them have really "caught" me (and I have been feeling a little under-the-weather) so I haven't been in a reading mode.
  1. 31 Hours by Masha Hamilton - I have heard nothing but good things about this book - and I was supposed to have it done awhile ago - but there isn't enough action in it for me at this point. I am over 1/2 way through though, and it isn't very long - so I am hoping to finish it this week.
  2. Ginger High by Melissa Burmester - The author of this book is only 14 - which is amazing - but so far it has been too "jumpy" and I am having a hard time making sense of it. Again, the book isn't real long so I will probably stick with it. I am also going to have my 15 year old start it to see if she can give me a YA perspective on it.
  3. Stretch Marks: A Novel by Kimberly Stuart - This one I think I will actually like once I am able to get past the first chapter!
  4. A Highlander's Temptation by Sue Ellen Welfonder - I had a hard time getting in this as the Scottish dialect was hard for me to grasp - Now that I am into it though, I really want to find out what happens.
  5. How I Live Now by Meg Rosoff - I am listening to this one in the car, and am not quite sure what I think yet. I wasn't prepared for some of the story line so it has taken me by surprise - especially since it is a YA book.
Books I am going to be starting this week:
  1. The Evolution of Shadows by Jason Quinn Malott - I have an interview with Jason tomorrow, so be sure to stop by and visit.
  2. Kiss Me Again: Restoring Lost Intimacy in Marriage by Barbara Wilson - This is on a blog tour this week and I really want to read it to "spice" up my relationship with my husband!
Books I completed last week:
  1. All About Us #5: Tidings of Great Boys: An All About Us Novel by Shelley Adina - I finished this one last night and will be posting a review soon. It was book 5 in the All About Us Series and I can't wait to read the next one.
  2. The Sound of Sleigh Bells by Cindy Woodsmall - Another good Amish read.

So what are you all reading this week?

I hear you on having a hard time finishing books.

You've certainly got a lot on your plate this week, book-wise. Good luck with it.

Haven't written up my post yet. Saw yours on my way down the list to J. Kaye's originating post and decided to stop in.

I'm not familiar with the books you listed, but they sound great. I hope you find more time to read! Enjoy your books!

Just got more books for my birthday, but today I should be housecleaning, making up for a week off at the Muse Online conference.

I really want to read Sleigh Bells and Stretch Marks -- I've heard good things about both of those!
