It's Monday -- What Are You Reading?

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is hosted by Sheila at One Persons Journey Through a World of Books. It's is a weekly event to celebrate what we are reading for the week as well as books completed the previous week.

Finished and reviewed last week:
The Sweet By and By by Todd Johnson (1 out of 5 stars -- I was probably overly harsh on this book -- 1 star maybe extreme, but I wouldn't give it much more than 2 -- it was a rambling mess with no plot).

The Sweet By and By: A Novel

The Mother Daughter Book Club by Heather Vogel Frederick

The Mother-Daughter Book Club (The Mother-Daughter Book Club, #1)

This was our choice for our own mother/daughter book club.  My nine year old, who is reluctant to read anything, devoured this book and the 2 sequels.  It was her selection.  I, on the other hand, am not quite sure what to think of it.  The premise of mothers trying to encourage their girls to read Little Women is charming, but it is filled with "tweens" being VERY mean to each other and exhibiting rude behavior that I would never tolerate.  It will be an interesting discussion on Tuesday, that is for sure.

Up next:
I have NO idea!  I have three books checked out from the library, that upon first glance, looked really interesting. Now that they are home, not so much.  I still need to finish Josephine B...hopefully I can get that done.

What are you reading this week?
