It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

It's been so crazy at work lately I haven't really had the chance to indulge myself in reading these past several weeks and I feel like I've really neglected my blog.  I just had a makeover to a lovely new design by Emily at Blogaholic Designs (thank you Emily!!!) but haven't had a chance to really work with it as of yet and I'm starting to feel really guilty.  Summer holidays are coming soon and I can't wait, although the course that I was supposed to take that was supposedly cancelled is now back in session (just found out this morning with a lovely Monday morning email) and I'm not looking forward to doing it even though I need to do it for my job. 

So, when life is stressful everywhere else, where do I head?  The library or bookstore of course.  I was thrilled to finally get my hands on Evermore and am almost finished.  So I snuck in a few minutes of reading in between marking projects.  What else would be new?  I did it studying for exams all through university too and I did fairly well so I figure why stop now.  It's amazing how we have to justify everything even as adults, isn't it?

It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is hosted by Sheila over at One Person's Journey Through a World of Books.  It's such a great way to keep focused on what you have read, what you are are currently reading ('cause if you're like me you have at least five books on the go at once), and what you want or need to read in the upcoming week.   Come check it out!  It's also a great way to discover new books, new authors, and new blogs. 

This is what I read this week:
Folly by Marthe Jocelyn   - Review to be posted this week.

Evermore by Alyson Noel - Review forthcoming.  I am almost finished which is why I put this book in this category.  I am loving it!!!

Sea by Heidi R. Kling - I loved this book.  You can read my review here.  Look for my forthcoming giveaway of an ARC of this book to be posted this week.

I am currently reading:
Flirting With Forever by Gwen Cready

Restoring Harmony by Joelle Anthony

Planning to Read:
The Kings of Clonmel by John Flanagan

Spirit by Andrew Feder

What are you reading this week?


  1. Hi, Stephanie. I don't know any of those titles; but you got a lot of reading done. I'll check you out next week.

  2. I really liked Evermore when I read it as well. Sadly the series is starting to disappoint. I'll read Dark Flame when it comes out, but after that ... it depends lol!
    Great reading week!

  3. I look forward to your Folly and Evermore review. I really hope to get to Evermore soon. I'll head over to see your Sea review now!
    Happy reading!

  4. Loving the layout Stephanie!

    I too want to read Sea and cant wait!

  5. Wonderful blog design! I've read great things about Sea. It is on my TBR list.

  6. Doesn't Emily do a wonderful job! It looks great!

    You have quite a few good books there and I am with you, when I get stressed I lose myself in a book :)

  7. Oh my gosh! I love your blog. It truly is amazing. I also love evermore.

  8. Thanks everyone for the kind words with regards to my blog. I really think it looks great too and I can't wait to have time to get my hands on it and see what I can do with it.
