Sunday Salon

This week I manage to buy some new books, get to the library, and read a couple of books. It was the third week of school for the kids, and the permission slips for after school clubs are rolling in, which means I'm now on taxi mode. I'll be more in my car than at home starting now until Christmas break.

Books read this week- After having a slow start, I manage to read 4 books this week.

Falling for You- Jill Mansell, The Pre-nup- Beth Kendrick, Twenties Girl- Sophie Kinsella, and Impossible- Nancy Werlin. Twenties Girl was the one book that I really liked this week. Look for my review, I should be getting to it soon. I usually like Beth Kendrick's books but The Pre-nup wasn't very good, and I felt the same way about Falling for You.

Abandoned Books-This week I abandoned one book, Perfecting Kate by Tamara Leigh. Perfecting Kate is a christian lit book, I don't mind christian fiction books but this one was overly preachy. There wasn't a page that didn't have at least 4 mentions of religion.

Book bought or checked out - This week I bought 4 books, Twenties Girl- Sophie Kinsella, Revenge of the Spellmans- Lisa Lutz, The Rise and Fall of the Queen of Suburbia- Sarah May, and Inside the Mind of Gideon Rayburn- Sarah Miller. I checked out of the library, Impossible- Nancy Werlin, and put on hold South of Broad- Pat Conroy.

Currently Reading- I'm about to start Revenge of the Spellmans, and then I think I'll pick up Standing Still- Kelly Simmons

1001 Books Challenge- Every month I choose a book for my 1001 Books Challenge, so for September I've chosen from the 1900's list, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas: A Savage Journey to the Heart of the American Dream by Hunter S. Thompson. I'm looking forward to reading it.

Have a great Sunday and Labor Day!

  1. I'm looking forward to Twenties Girl too. I'll look out for the review!

    I'm disappointed in myself b/c I didn't get to my 1001 books choice for last month!! But I will do it this month. Plus the book I chose will be used for another challenge as well so that should extra motivate me!
