It's Monday! What are you reading?

What are you reading on Monday? is a weekly meme hoste by J. Kaye at J. Kaye's Book blog where you post books completed last week and plans for upcoming books. You can find her blog here to participate.

Well, it's been a slow week as far as what was actually accomplished this past week, but the two books I am currently reading are both chunky historical fiction works (600+ pages), so I'm enjoying the experience and not in a hurry to finish.

I posted a review of The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer. I loved it and gave it a five star review.

I have also organized my upcoming TBR books by genre; if you scroll down the right side of my blog, you can see at a glance which books will be coming up for review.

And last but not least, I received this "Your Blog Rocks" from the fabulous Reagan at Miss Remmer's Review last week, and I think it is very appropriate to pass this award to J. Kaye for not only hosting this weekly meme, but for all she does in the book blogging community. J. Kaye, your blog rocks, and so do you! So, this one is for you:

It's back to school week here for us, so it will be a busy one! Have a great week!

I love your new meme painting, J. Kaye. I need to take the old one off of my blog, I guess.
