The Monday Book Report #14

I am linking up with 

WHAT DID I READ THIS WEEK:  I missed posting last week, so I these books are for the past 2 weeks - but oh my goodness!  I read some great ones!  

First, I finished "The Stationary Shop" by Marjan Kamali  4-1/2 *
A beautiful Iranian love story full of culture and history.  
From Amazon "The Stationery Shop is a beautiful and timely exploration of devastating loss, unbreakable family bonds, and the overwhelming power of love." Available on Kindle Unlimited.

Second, I read "When I Was You" by Minka Kent  4-1/2*
This one is a twisty mystery that keeps you guessing until the end. I chose it as a First Read's selection on Amazon, so I got it for free.  It is now a part of Kindle Unlimited as well. 

I truly loved this one!  The characters are amazing and multidimensional, it is a touching story that includes a little mystery, a little fantasy, and a lot of love. This one is also a part of the Kindle Unlimited program on Amazon. 

Finally, I read "Regretting You", my second Colleen Hoover for this year. 4*
Also on Kindle Unlimited (getting my money's worth this month!) this is a twisty complicated mother-daughter story, part love story, part mystery.  Enjoying this author! 

WHAT BOOKS DID I BUY/BORROW THIS WEEK:  I purchased a few thrift store books last week.  It was under $3.00 for the books below.  The Kite Runner, Into the Woods, and The Shack I have read - but I bought them for my book ministry (see below). Still Alice is also to donate.  I also purchased "The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek" for my Kindle.


WHAT ARE MY READING PLANS FOR THE UPCOMING WEEK: I just purchased the e-book "The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek" (which was the book I wanted to get my hands on in my last Book Report!) I'll be starting this one! 


The Leap into Horror Readathon starts on Saturday the 15th and goes through the end of the month.  I may have to join this one! 

I may also have to join in the Basically Readathon on February 15th where you read a book that has been on your TBR for a long, long time!

MY BOOK MINISTRY: I only left two books last week in Little Free Libraries - but they were good ones!  The Kite Runner and Into the Woods :)  Left little notes on the books to encourage people to read! 


  1. A good haul and I like your book ministry idea!
    I just learned that my community is setting up two Little Free Libraries and I am very excited to give some books.
    Have a good week with Happy Reading!

  2. I see a lot of great books on your list. Regretting You sounds good. I hope you enjoy all your new arrivals.

  3. I am glad When I Was You was good.. I think I selected it..🤣

  4. Where the Forest Meets the Stars is one of my all-time favorite books :) Glad you enjoyed it as well! Have a great week.

  5. Very nice mailbox.

    They all look good.

    ENJOY, and I hope your week of reading has been good.
