it's monday! what are you reading? (9-19-16)

Last week was a slow reading week for me ... largely due to my current obsession with One Tree Hill! When OTH was on TV, I thought it was just a dumb teen soap. I was kind of right—it is a teen soap. But it's not dumb, and it's so addictive! I started watching about a month ago, and my reading life has suffered, to say the least.

What I read last week:

Professional Boundaries by Jennifer Peel. This is a Kindle freebie that I absolutely did not intend to read right away. But I somehow accidentally opened it on my Kindle, started reading, and was hooked. It's a very compelling story, though some aspects of the writing really bugged me. I'll try to get a review written up soon, but I'm thinking it's about a 3-1/2 star read.

What I'm reading now:

Together at the Table by Hillary Manton Lodge. I'm about 3/4 of the way through, and I'm absolutely loving it!

A Tapestry of Secrets by Sarah Loudin Thomas. This is my "lunch break" book, and it's taking me longer to get into it than I anticipated. That could be because my lunch break is often interrupted, so I don't get a solid chunk of reading time!

The Fault in Our Stars by John Green. I only read a little bit of this one over the last week, but as the month is winding down, I need to get going! (It's my choice for a banned book for Modern Mrs. Darcy's 2016 reading challenge.)

What I'll read next:

The Wedding Shop by Rachel Hauck. I've been looking forward to this for a while, and I think I finally have time in my schedule to read it ... that is, if I can pry myself away from Netflix long enough to read!

  1. One Tree Hill was my guilty pleasure when it was on! I watched it with my son. I listen to The Fault In Our Stars on audio and loved it. Happy reading.

    1. It would have been better for me to have watched when it aired--then it would only have consumed 1 hour/week, as opposed to ... well, I don't think I should say how much time I spend watching now ;-) Glad to hear you loved The Fault in Our Stars--I hope to finish it this week!

  2. Hillary's 'Blue Doors' series is a delight from opening page to final. Loved it. I'm reading way to many books just now but am focusing on Melissa Tagg's. :)

    1. I preordered the Kindle version of Keep Holding On, and I'm a little jealous that the print copies have gone out already! Sept. 27 can't come soon enough :-)
