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 Mother Daughter Book Club by Heather Vogel Frederick (3 out of 5 stars -- my daughter enjoyed it much more than I did)
The Mother-Daughter Book Club (The Mother-Daughter Book Club, #1)

Finished but not yet reviewed:
Wildflower by Mark Seal (an amazing story about a remarkable woman who met a tragic and untimely death -- highly recommended). 

Should finish this week:
The Many Lives and Sorrows of Josephine B. by Sandra Gulland
(This was set aside due to other books that needed to be read for book club)

Hmm. I have Lonesome Dove sitting right here by my desk. If I'm ever going to read it, it's probably going to have to be because I "have" to ... so I just may have join you in that read-a-long!

I will have to add Wildflower to my list but will wait for your review (I can't wait to read what made it so compelling).

Are you enjoying Jos. B? You really need to read the second book - which is also very good and quite historical. I learned so much!

So excited for the read along!

I think everyone should read Lonesome Dove, it's an American classic for sure. Have you seen the tv mini-series? If not, you should watch it after you finish the book, it was very, very well done. Have a great week! :)

Wildflower looks really good! I have never read Lonesome Dove, but it's one of my Mom's favorites. Look forward to your thoughts on Wildflower. Have a great week!
