The Monday Book Report, Edition #6



I am linking up with 








WHAT DID I READ THIS WEEK:  I finished three books this week!  One e-book, one real book, and one audiobook.  

Book review:  The Great Alone 

Book review:  The Storyteller's Secret 

I also finished Tayari Jones' "An American Marriage" - I was not a huge fan.  You can read my mini Goodreads review HERE.  

FAVORITE QUOTE FROM A BOOK I READ: 

WHAT BOOKS DID I BUY/BORROW THIS WEEK:  

From the library:





E-books borrowed on Libby (3 of my favorite authors) : 

Nora Roberts: Star of Fortune 
Colleen Coble: The Inn at Ocean's Edge
Terri Blackstock: Truth Stained Lies 

Purchased (for free) on Kindle: 

Jane Steen: The House of Closed Doors 
Kristine Raymond: Here to Stay 
WHAT IS THE BOOK I MOST WANT TO GET MY HANDS ON RIGHT NOW: I'm on the wait list at the library for Shirley Jackson's The House on Haunted Hill.  Really excited about reading that. 

WHAT ARE MY READING PLANS FOR THE UPCOMING WEEK: I hope to finish the Nora Roberts book and Sons of Blackbird Mountain as well as the audiobook The Graveyard Book. 


ANYTHING READING RELATED, ETC.: I'm looking forward to the start of Frankenfest as well as The Classics Club's Goth Month!  Spooky reading to come!

    1. I think I average about 1 per week - I'd like to pick that up to about 2 per week next year. I don't think I"ve ever read more than 80 books in a year.

    1. My daughter is a huge fan of the book Coraline, she's read it a dozen times. I wanted to read The Graveyard Book, but there was a long wait at my library. The audiobook was there so I figured I would go that route!

  6. Nice job finishing up some books. I couldn't have read An American Marriage. It would have angered me. Colleen Coble is always a good read. Hope you have a wonderful week. Thanks for visiting my blog.

    1. An American Marriage DID anger me. I guess it's good to read a book like that once in a great while, lol. I agree Colleen Coble is always good!

  7. I liked The Great Alone very much although very sad in parts. I love anything she writes!

    1. It was really sad. Especially when she was losing her mom. I lost my mom 1-1/2 years ago in the same way - it was hard going through that part. She is one of my favorite authors!

  8. I think I finished a few last week too. This week hasn't been as good. I hope to finish up one. I have lots of school work to do so don't know if I will get a chance to read more than that. Have a great week!
