"Before you, Bella, my life was like a moonless night. Very dark, but there were stars, points of light and reason. ...And then you shot across my sky like a meteor. Suddenly everything was on fire; there was brilliancy, there was beauty. When you were gone, when the meteor had fallen over the horizon, everything went black. Nothing had changed, but my eyes were blinded by the light. I couldn’t see the stars anymore. And there was no more reason, for anything."

~ Edward Cullen

What are you reading (20)?


It's Monday! What are you reading this week? is a weekly event now hosted by One Persons Journey Through a World Of Books. It's helpful way to take a look at what you have read and what you want to read!

This was an amazing reading week for me.  I enjoyed almost all that I read and listened to, and am quite enjoying November and its longer evenings.  There's a bit of a chill in the air, and the mornings are quite crisp.  I just don't think there's anything quite like snuggling up in my favorite chair on a chilly fall day and getting lost in a book!

Here's what I read and reviewed this week (click title for link to review):
I also watched and reviewed Masterpiece Theater's rendition of Jane Eyre.  My review is here.  I very much enjoyed it and think everyone should check it out, even if you've never read the book!

Here's what is on my reading list for this week:


The Alchemist's Daughter - Katherine McMahon --- This is a repeat from last week.

Audio of Viola in Reel Life - Adriana Trigiani --- I'm over half way finished with this one and really enjoying it!

Audio of The Wife's Tale by Lori Lansens - I've heard really great things about this one

Lost and Found - Jacqueline Sheenan

Case Histories - Katie Atkinson

That's my week.  What do you have planned?

Oh, I loved the Kate Atkinson book...and I see another Adriana Trigiani that I don't have, and which is tempting me!

Here's my Monday:

Wow you really did have a great week. I have not read Scott for a while, but will have to check out your review of Love You Hate You Miss You. I just finished a book about typhoid and need to read Fever 1793 as I know many of my kids have enjoyed it since Anderson first published it.

Hope you have another great week.

The Alchemist's Daughter sounds like a good book, I think I'll check it out. I also have most of Kate Atkinson's books on my shelf which I haven't found the time to read yet. Anyway, have a good reading week ahead.

I haven't heard of Viola in Reel Life, I don't think. I hope you'll enjoy it. I read all of Trigiani's books until she started the Valentine series. Then I somehow stopped.

Happy reading. http://leeswammes.wordpress.com Leeswammes (Judith)
