It’s Monday! What Are You Reading This Week?


It’s Monday! What Are You Reading This Week? This is a weekly event to list the books completed last week, the books currently being reading, and the books to be finish this week. It was created by J.Kaye’s Book Blog, but is now being hosted by Sheila from One Person’s Journey Through a World of  Books so stop by and join in!

I have neglected this poor blog for the past couple of weeks due to work. Our big meeting was last week and long hours meant less time for me to write reviews. I’m hoping to catch up this week.

This week:

I arrived home yesterday to an envelope from Amazon with Nora Robert’s latest, Happy Ever After. I’ve been eagerly anticipating this one since I finished the last book in the series. At the same time it will be said since it is the final installment in the Bride Quartet.

I’m also working my way through Ernest Hemingway’s A Moveable Feast (or as my coworker called it, Moveable Feat). I am NOT a fan of Hemingway’s work. I barely made it through the books I had to read for school but I am really enjoying this book. My friend recommended it based on my love of Fitzgerald and the time period and mentioned that it wasn’t like his other work. I’m so happy I listened to him this time.

Last week:

I was away working most of last week so I didn’t have much time to read. But I managed to get in Jill Shalvis’s latest, Simply Irresistible. I still need to write my review but suffice it to say, I really enjoyed the book. Ms. Shalvis was almost responsible for me being late to a business meeting because I just had to find out how the story ended. My only other comment for now is that I want a Jax. (If only you can order those on Amazon.)

So that’s it for me. What are you reading this week?

Waiting on Wednesday: Happy Ever After

“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine.

No judgment! I like romance novels –  well good romance novels.  And before you scoff, yes, the do exist.

Nora Roberts is queen of the romance novels and I fell in love with her Bride Quartet series from the moment I pushed the next page button while reading Vision in White. The dynamic among the friends just reeled me in. I preordered the next two in the series and devoured them the moment they became available.

Needless to say, I’ve been eagerly anticipating Parker’s book, Happy Ever After which comes out on November 2.

As the public face of Vows wedding planning company, Parker Brown has an uncanny knack for fulfilling every bride’s vision. She just can’t see where her own life is headed. Mechanic Malcomb Kavanaugh loves figuring out how things work, and Parker is no exception. Both know that moving from minor flirtation to major hook-up is a serious step. Parker’s business risks have always paid off, but now she’ll have to take the chance of a lifetime with her heart…

The only thing that makes me sad is that I’ll be out of town the day the book releases so I won’t be able to read it until the following week.

Is it November 8th yet?
