It's Monday! What are You Reading?

Hosted by Sheila at book journey; join the fun!

Books I Finished:

Under a Maui Moon by Robin Jones Gunn.  Review here.

Little House in the Big Woods by Laura Ingalls Wilder.  Review here.

Books on Deck:

This Lullaby by Sarah Dessen
Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak...I'm listening to it, and it's a bit slow.  Let me clarify: it is interesting, but there is no definite plot yet besides her learning to read.... Any encouragement to keep reading??



  1. I love Robin Jones Gunn. I first read The Christy Miller series in high school. The books are still on my shelf! I love all the Laura Ingalls books, they were my favorites growing up. I would get lost for hours in her world! I hope to read them with my kids someday!

  2. I loved The Book Thief...but I read it, not sure how it "translates" to audio.
    No Monday post from me, but I'm reading "Lonesome Dove" and Traveling with Pomegranates -- on deck, The Sunflower by Richard Paul Evans for book club, and A Wrinkle in Time for Mother/Daugther book group.
    Have a great week.

  3. The Book Thief is so incredible - but I read it not audio and I am the first to admit that the narrator of an audio can make or break a book. If you get stuck on the audio please pick up the book version and give it your own voice :)

  4. The Book Thief is a wonderful story, but it is slow. Not sure what it would be like listening to it, but hang in there it is worth it.

  5. I'm with Shelia and Gerbera - loved The Book Thief but not sure how it would go as an audio.
    Check out my Monday at

  6. Well, I haven't read The Book Thief, but when I have a hard time making it through an audio book, I usually tackle some horrid household project. I clean out my closets or wipe down bathroom drawers, something boring that requires distraction.

  7. Can't go wrong with Laura Ingalls.


  8. I've only read one other Dessen book, but I've heard she's amazing and I love the covers of her books. Hope you enjoy and have a great week :)
