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.

Kids were out of school on Friday because of snow, more snow in the forecast for this week -- if I see another flake I think I will freak!  I live in the South for a reason! 

As for books....


Moon Over Manifest by Clare Vanderpool (5 out of 5 book I've read in a long time!  Newbery Medal Winner of 2011)

Planting Dandelions by Kyran Pittman (4 out of 5 stars -- life in the maternal trenches behind the white picket fence)


The Coral Thief by Rebecca Stott (February book club choice)

The Coral Thief by Rebecca Stott: Book Cover

Washington City is Burning by Harriett Robinet (Mother/Daughter book club choice)

Hope you live someplace warm and sunny, and if you do, may I come visit?!

What are you reading this week?

I haven't even heard of Moon Over Manifest. I'm behind in my Newbery Medal Winners sadly. Enjoy your books!

Your finished books sound very good.

I'm so honored to get Gerbera stars! And relieved that school pick-up-time encounters won't be awkward! ;-)

The Coral Thief sounds interesting... I am drawn to books with the word Thief in them... I have no idea why :)

Have a wonderful week!

The Coral Thief looks going to have to look into this.

I haven't been on email much but read your email - sorry you won't be able to get to NYC this spring.

I'm reading Wildthorn right now, enjoying it!

It's a sunny day in Sydney today - I'm off to explore. Have a great week.

No warmth or sun here! Lots of good exercise shoveling snow, though!

Happy Reading!

Here's my Monday!
